Description:  Meg Mackworth’s hand-lettering skill has made her famous as the Planner of Park Slope, designing custom journals for New York City’s elite. She has another skill too: reading signs that other people miss. Knowing the upcoming marriage of Reid Sutherland and his gorgeous fiancée was doomed to fail is one thing, but weaving a secret word of warning into their wedding program is another. Meg may have thought no one would spot it, but she hadn’t counted on sharp-eyed, pattern-obsessed Reid . . .
 
A year later, Reid has tracked Meg down to find out how she knew that his meticulously planned future was about to implode. But with a looming deadline and a bad case of creative block, Meg doesn’t have time for Reid’s questions—unless he can help her find her missing inspiration. As they gradually open up to each other, both try to ignore 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 . . .  (publisher)

My take: The whimsical and charming first chapter hooked me and I was happy the feeling carried through the rest of the novel. Meg (a letters girl) and Reid’s (a numbers guy) relationship begins in an unexpected way which I enjoyed reading about. Kate Clayborn built on that with a steady pace that kept me interested and turning the pages. There’s friendship, attraction, drama, love between several characters (best friends, new friends, colleagues), The Brooklyn setting was perfect. I liked the sign game created by Reid that helped him and Meg become better acquainted. The ability to read signs would be helpful in their future. I liked that both Meg and Reid showed subtle growth, learned to take a breath and consider things from another perspective before reacting. All in all, a fresh and fun love story. I look forward to seeing what Clayborn writes next.
