Goodnight Tweetheart by Teresa Medeiros

The Blurb (on goodreads):

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?
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.

The Afterglow:

Teresa Medeiros swept me off my feet, tweet style. For those who don't understand twitter or use it religiously this book is the perfect blend of comedy and romance. Her gift of communication through 140 characters will leave you wild-eyed and thirsty for more!
Abby Donovan was a New York Times Bestseller and now known as the New York Times Best Blocker when a bad case of Writer's block keeps her from writing anymore novels. From the get go you're left feeling sorry for Abby but wanting nothing more than for her to exceed. When her agent sets her up with a brand new twitter account she's left to her devices in hopes to make new friendships and hopefully the long lasting kind.

This is where she meets Mark Baynard and the friendship between the two blossom. For nightly tweets and the occasional tweetdate they fall into a whirlwind romance neither of them expect. When truths are revealed about Mark, Abby realizes she'd do anything to be by his side and the detective work goes until the last page.

This novel was both hilarious and heart warming. With their nightly good-bye's Medeiros will keep you chuckling. My personal favorite portion of the novel are when they say goodnight to one another. She's set a new and lovable ending to say goodnight. She is extremely witty in the 140 characters or less and I was impressed with each passing page that she could keep it all together.

A light and fun read and the ending will melt your heart!
