Description

From the award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Fangirl, Carry On, and Landline comes a hilarious and heartfelt novel about an office romance that blossoms one email at a time...

Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.

Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now—reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be “internet security officer,” he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers—not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.

When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. He can't help being entertained, and captivated, by their stories. But by the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself. What would he even say...?

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 17, 2011 – In sweet, silly, and incredibly long digital missives, best newsroom pals Beth and Jennifer trade gossip over their romances Beth with her marriage-phobic boyfriend, Chris, and Jennifer with her baby-mania-stricken husband, Mitch. What they don't know is that the newly hired computer guy, Lincoln, an Internet security officer charged with weeding out all things unnecessary or pornographic, is reading their messages. But lonely Lincoln lets the gals slide on their inappropriate office mail and gets hooked on their soapy dalliances, falling head over heels for the unlucky-in-love Beth. Debut novelist and real-life newspaper columnist Rowell has the smarts for this You've Got Mail like tale of missed connections, but what doesn't work so well is the firewall between the traditional narrative reserved for Lincoln's emergence from shy guy to Beth's guy, and heroines who are confined to the e-epistolary format. Despite the structural problems, there's enough heart and humor to save these likable characters from the recycle bin.

Customer Reviews

Hilarious

I bought this book because of the holiday more in the description. It was even better than I could have hoped. Charming, sweet, moving, and best of all, really funny. I probably looked like a loon laughing out loud and reading lines out loud to no one.
She’s brilliant and I wish there was a sequel.

First time reading this author. The fact that it’s a first novel was a surprise. Reviewers described it as a funny book. I found it a special and refreshingly different story that I was sorry to finish. Loved the characters and the fact they were so easy to identify with. Kudos to this author !

A "Grabs You and You Never Want To Let Go" kind of book.

I always browse the free section on iBooks and usually there are some entertaining books available but this one...this one doesn't belong in the free section. This one belongs in the full priced paid section and my cheap self would absolutely buy it. Amazing character development, full of laugh out loud moments, and you end the book feeling happy but depressed because you will miss the characters so much. 😜Highly recommend!
