Meet Me in the Margins

 

Savannah Cade’s dreams are coming true. The Claire Donovan, editor-in-chief of the most successful romance imprint in the country, has requested to see the manuscript Savannah’s been secretly writing while working as editor herself—except at her publishing house, the philosophy is only highbrow works are worth printing and commercial fiction, particularly romance, should be reserved for the lowest level of Dante’s inferno. But when Savannah drops her manuscript during a staff meeting and nearly exposes herself to the whole company—including William Pennington, new publisher and son of the romance-despising CEO herself—she races to hide her manuscript in the secret turret room of the old Victorian office.

When she returns, she’s dismayed to discover that someone has not only been in her hidden nook but has written notes in the margins—quite critical ones. But when Claire’s own reaction turns out to be nearly identical to the scribbled remarks, and worse, Claire announces that Savannah has six weeks to resubmit before she retires, Savannah finds herself forced to seek the help of the shadowy editor after all.

As their notes back and forth start to fill up the pages, however, Savannah finds him not just becoming pivotal to her work but her life. There’s no doubt about it. She’s falling for her mystery editor. If she only knew who he was.


My Review

This is a sweet and charming read. It was fun to see a book being writing within a book. Although, I do agree with Savannah's mystery critique editor on the edits that they gave Savannah on her book. Not that I have anything wrong with Hallmark movies. 

While I figured it out very early on in the story who Savannah's "mystery" critique editor was, I still did enjoy this book. Yet, I would have liked the interaction between Savannah and her mystery editor to have been more engaging with witty banter. There was a little witty banter, but it was very tame. This was a chance for more romantic sparks to ignite between the two. Overall, I did like this book. It is a sweet meet cute rom com.
