Review

This year there was one item that topped my list to Santa and since I was pretty sure I had finally made it off the dreaded “Naughty List”, finding a copy of GOODNIGHT TWEETHEART: A LOVE STORY IN 140 CHARACTERS OR LESS by Teresa Medeiros under the tree didn’t come as too big of a surprise.

Counting myself among the throng of loyal minion who follow this witty author on Twitter (@TeresaMedeiros), from the moment the first 140 character blurb appeared several months ago talking about this book, I’ve been counting down patiently for it’s release.

 

“@WhattheHeckHappenedtoMyLife

Abigail Donovan has a lot of stuff she should be doing. Namely writing her next novel. A bestselling author who is still recovering from a near Pulitzer Prize win and the heady success that follows Oprah’s stamp of approval, she is stuck at Chapter Five and losing confidence daily. But when her publicist signs her up for a Twitter account, she’s intrigued. What’s all the fuss?

Trending Topic: True Love

Taken under the wing of one of her Twitter followers, “MarkBaynard”—a quick witted, quick-typing professor on sabbatical—Abby finds it easy to put words out into the world 140 characters at a time. And once she gets a handle on tweets, retweets, direct messages, hashtags, and trends, she starts to feel unblocked in writing and in life. After all, why should she be spending hours in her apartment staring at her TweetDeck and fretting about her stalled career when Mark is out there traveling the world and living?

Or is he?

Told almost entirely in tweets and DMs, GOODNIGHT TWEETHEART is a truly modern take on a classic tale of love and loss—a Griffin and Sabine for the Twitter generation.”

GOODNIGHT TWEETHEART was bar none, my best Christmas gift this year!

Within four and half hours of arriving home from the Christmas festivities I was turning over the last page with a very pleasant and satisfied sigh of enjoyment. Although, I’ve never particularly been a fan of novels that are written using a single POV, in this case it was a perfect fit and for that I have to give additional kudos to Teresa Medeiros. By employing the single POV from Abby’s perspective, her character becomes instantly relatable to anyone who has ever traveled along the social network super highway and wondered who was really on the other end of all those friend requests.

Step by step, tweet by tweet, the reader becomes engrossed in this ultra-modern method of courtship between two strangers falling in love without the usual superficialities getting in the way. Pushed along by the snappy, humorous dialog I’ve come to know and love from Teresa Medeiros and an ending that brought more than one tear to my eye, GOODNIGHT TWEETHEART was bar none, my best Christmas gift this year!
