It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress. Something blue.
I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.”
Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true.
The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there. Because I’ve since found out something else about Mr. Starry-Eyed.
He’s arrogant, cynical, and demanding. I should know. Thanks to a twist of fate, he’s my new boss. But that’s not going to stop me from discovering the story behind his last love letter. A love letter that did not result in a happily ever after.
But that story is nothing compared to the one unfolding between us. It’s getting hotter, sweeter, and more surprising than anything I could have imagined. Something new. But I have no idea how this one is going to end…
I could sum up Hate Notes review in one sentence, but even if I would extend it in 1000 words, they would not be enough. What is certain, is that this is absolutely one of the most beautiful novels I have ever read. I would dare to say, THE most beautiful. Reed and Charlotte are the most impossible and appropriate together. A perfect match ... to make sparks! I loved every single aspect of their story: the way it is written, the intelligent and ironic characters, every single scene: I found it absolutely perfect. Passionate, romantic, funny like only a few other books I’ve read, and with a hint of madness. I could not find a single stereotype in the whole storytelling and that’s why I could read every page with the same approach and the same intensity.
Just thinking back to the note Reed leaves on Charlotte's desk, makes me laugh again like crazy!
What to say more? A story that we really hope to see soon on the big screen: it actually deserves to get this result. We hope that the Italian public too can enjoy the novel as soon as possible!
