Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

"Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you . . . "

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. But he can't help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.

By the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself.

What would he say . . . ?

Review by Library Journal (2011-02-15)

As an Internet security officer at a newspaper, Lincoln reads emails sent among his coworkers and administers warnings about proper content. Although he hates this part of his job, Lincoln is instantly captivated by the exchanges between best friends Beth and Jennifer; instead of giving them a warning, he continues to read Jennifer's news about her husband and Beth's revelations about her boyfriend. Lincoln soon finds himself falling in love with Beth, even though they have never met. But the deeper he falls, the more keenly aware Lincoln becomes of his precarious position. He begins to realize that he may not have a chance with the woman whose privacy he has so grossly invaded.

Verdict: Set at the turn of the 21st century, this debut novel by a newspaper columnist includes convincing details about the attitude toward computer use in the workplace and brushes over anxieties associated with Y2K. Chick-lit fans may enjoy the engaging dialog and likable characters, but this reviewer was disappointed at the slow unfolding of the romantic elements; the few brief encounters were not enough to result in the full-blown relationship that develops in the span of a few pages at the novel's end.
