The book is SO good that I am repeating my review from last March here:
Twitter reminds me of being at a cocktail party- short conversations of witty repartee. I heard a saying that Facebook is for all the people you went to college with and Twitter is for all the people you wish you went to college with. I check on my Twitter-verse daily and really feel like my Twitter friends are real. (You all are real, right?)
Thus, I already knew I would like Goodnight Tweetheart by Teresa Medeiros. The book is about an author who had an Oprah selected book but is now stuck writing her next book four years later. The bloom is off the rose and her publisher and agent are frustrated with her.
“Being chosen for Oprah’s book club was a little like being struck by lightning at the precise moment you won the lottery.”
“She had even invested in a shiny new pair of Stuart Weitzmans, hoping the flirty pair of nude pumps would scream successful beyond your wildest dreams instead of desperate to recapture former glory.” (I love this line because I love Stuart Weitzman shoes.)
In order to boost her following, her agent signs her up for Twitter. She lackadaisically plays around on Twitter and almost immediately meets Mark Baynard. They have serious witty tweets going back and forth. The writing is crisp and makes you laugh out loud. Mark is describing his European sabbatical while Abby is describing her dismal life at home with cats, take out food and writers’ block.
This book channels the movie You’ve Got Mail. Mark ends up having a BIG secret that Abby figures out and has to digest. This seemingly light book becomes a HUGE page turner around Chapter 12. You then simply cannot put it down as you have to know how it turns out.
Goodnight Tweetheart is so much more than it appears on the surface. You feel the relationship of Abby and Mark growing. I can’t say much more without being a spoiler so I’ll just say- GO READ THIS BOOK!
