'Lyrical and engrossing . . . bursting with humour' - Entertainment Weekly

The thing is, the letters don't always tell me truths about myself. Sometimes they tell me truths about other people. And Reid Sutherland is - was - one of those people.

In the last year, Meg Mackworth's beautiful hand-lettering skills have seen her rocket to social media fame, and now she has a booming business crafting stationery for the stars. But she has a secret: sometimes, she just can't resist hiding messages in her work. Slightly unprofessional, maybe - but harmless. Right?

Analyst Reid Sutherland and his gorgeous fiancee had their future mapped out. Until he noticed a pattern in his wedding invitation that made him think twice.

When Meg looks up from her desk one day and sees Reid standing in front of her with no wedding ring, holding the invitation she created, she thinks that her career is over.

But her life may be about to begin . . .

Escape into a beautiful world of craft and romance that will grab hold of your heart and never let go.

Review quote

PRAISE FOR LOVE LETTERING * - * Love Lettering is delicious and beautiful and perfect * New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean * Quirky and winning * USA Today * A lush, languid romance * Washington Post * With smart characters and authentic di lemmas, this is a very special romance to both smile and sigh over * Bookpage * Fresh, funny, clever, and deeply satisfying * Kirkus * I flew through this creative and original book. I was completely absorbed by the world Kate Clayborn creates - the characters felt so real and their joys and sorrows and struggles and triumphs felt so relatable that I forgot I was reading fiction. I can't wait for the whole world to fall in love with Love Lettering! * Jasmine Guillory, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Proposal * Love Lettering made me laugh and made me cry. Kate Clayborn is my new go-to romance author * New York Times bestselling author Stacy Finz * Kate Clayborn's writing is uniquely, intensely beautiful. This book will wake you up in the middle of the night aching for these perfectly imperfect characters. It's layered, nuanced, and unrelenting in how deep it digs * Sonali Dev, author of Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors * A novel of lush complexity, one bursting with humour, a tender melancholy, and meditations on love, friendship, and life any reader can find solace and inspiration in. It's lyrical and engrossing, a novel that possesses all the colours, idiosyncrasies, and range of the alphabet. Like the pages Meg designs, Love Lettering is a novel bursting with hidden messages essential to discover - so long as we open our hearts to analyse the codes. * Entertainment Weekly * Clayborn delivers an emotionally resonant love story filled with charming details of city life and the artisanal trendiness of hand-lettering and calligraphy that adorns the urban setting. This will be popular among the enthusiastic and growing audience for romantic comedies * Library Journal * PRAISE FOR KATE CLAYBORN * - * Clayborn is a thoughtful, very talented writer * BookPage * A warm and lively romance * New York Times * Hilarious and moving and sexy * Buzzfeed * Clayborn's characters are bright and nuanced, her dialogue quick and clever, and the world she builds warm and welcoming * Washington Post * A layered and memorable love story . . . smart, sexy and sublime * USA Today *
