Goodnight Tweetheart by Teresa Medeiros: Romance in Twitterworld


Romance in the age of social media.  That is the theme of this contemporary romance penned by the best selling writer Teresa Medeiros.  A departure from her usual genre of historical romances, this seemingly lighthearted tale starts from one "hello!"  set in the ever popular world of Twitter.



The heroine is Abby Donovan, a best selling author, almost a Pulitzer Prize winning one at that, who at the beginning of the book was suffering from dreaded writer's block.  In fact she's been trying to write the same book for years.  Her agent and publisher are about to axe her.  What was she to do. Enter the social media world of Twitter.   Her agent suggested it would be good for her career.  And from then on, well you have to read the book to find out.  Seriously, its like falling in love in 140 characters or less (as the book blurb states!)

This tale is funny and witty and poignant.  Its written for the most part like your everyday tweets and the rapid fire dialogue between Abby and Mark are hilarious.  Each day they end their convo with the tag "Goodnight Tweetheart" hence the title.  There's even a playlist!   

I was in KL, browsing thru a bookstore when this book caught my eye.  The title was intriguing, it seemed lighthearted and obviously was a romance.  I flipped through it noticing that nearly the whole book was written in twitterverse.  Funny enough it was written by Teresa Medeiros, a well known and prolific bestselling author of historical romances.  I have never known her to have written anything in the contemporary setting.  I knew her style of writing and I can never really go wrong in buying the book and so I did.  I wasn't able to read it right away, in fact I got home from my trip, unpacked started regular life before I dug thru my pile of to-reads.  I pulled it out from the pile, started reading it and was laughing throughout and then crying near the end.  The way Abby and Marks romance unfolds thru Twitter of all places was just genius.  I mean these were conversations of 140 characters or less and despite that was still really funny and poignant.   The main setting is New York City, well mostly in front of the computer and those nontwitterverse prose were through Abby's point of view.

Warning though, the first edition of the book did not carry the added epilogue so be sure that the copy you get will have it or else it would feel like a let down.  This was the feeling I got from various readers and comments on website who got the first edition.  Here is a link for the deleted conversation from the author's website to give you a hint of what the book is like at the same time isn't really giving out a spoiler( click here)

Read this book and tell me what you think of it.  Now off to grab my Iced Tea!

Review Post: Fool Me Once by Catherine Bybee

Rating/Review: ☕☕☕☕ 1/2 (4.5 cups, this romantic suspense will give new meaning to The First Wives Club)
You never know what you really would be getting when reading a Catherine Bybee book.  On the outside, each book can definitely hold its own as a great contemporary romance novel.  Read a little bit further, you get well-defined, multilayered characters and a romantic suspense in the making. Pretty soon you will be amazed on the intricate storyline balanced well with the main characters developing romance.  Fool Me Once is definitely a Catherine Bybee book.  The first in her new series, First Wives,  Fool Me Once is also a spinoff from her popular Weekday Bride series.  And yet again, Ms. Bybee delivers in her great characters, well thought out plot and melding her two series together without one overpowering the other.
The story starts out as the head of Alliance and their legal go to person, Lori try to help one of their client who unexpectedly lost her husband.  To get her away …

EXCERPT:

“That was…interesting.” “I never thought I’d see those two mediums used together.” “I may have to stab my own eyes out to make sure I never see it again,” Brooke said and then shuddered. They had just left the art gallery, and she waited until they were at the corner before looking at Owen. “I…
