In Love Lettering, Meg Mackworth’s hand-lettering skill has made her famous by designing custom journals for her New York City clientele. She has another skill too: reading signs that other people miss. Knowing the upcoming marriage of Reid Sutherland and his polished fiancee was doomed to fail is one thing, but weaving a secret word of warning into their wedding program is another. A year later, Reid has tracked Meg down to find out how she knew that his meticulously planned future was about to implode. As they gradually open up to each other, both try to ignore a deepening connection between them. But the signs are there — irresistible, indisputable, urging Meg to heed the messages Reid is sending her, before it’s too late.
