Synopsis from Goodreads: Savannah Cade is a low-level editor at Pennington Publishing, a prestigious publisher producing only the highest of highbrow titles. And while editing the latest edition of The Anthology of Medieval Didactic Poetry may be her day job, she has two secrets she’s hiding.


One: She’s writing a romance novel.


Two: She’s discovered the Book Nook—a secret room in the publishing house where she finds inspiration for her “lowbrow” hobby.


After leaving her manuscript behind one afternoon, she returns to the nook only to discover someone has written notes in the margins. Savannah’s first response to the criticism is defensive, but events transpire that force her to admit that she needs the help of this shadowy editor after all. As the notes take a turn for the romantic, and as Savannah’s madcap life gets more complicated than ever, she uses the process of elimination to identify her mysterious editor—only to discover that what she truly wants and what she should want just might not be the same. Melissa Ferguson’s latest—a love letter to books, readers, and romance—will leave fans laughing out loud and swooning in the same breath.


My Review: This was a really cute book. I loved the view into the publishing house, I loved the secret room and I enjoyed the twists the story had to offer. Overall it was fine. But it was just that, fine. I didn't love the romance, though I liked both characters, and there were a few parts that really bugged me. Her whole living situation was super uncomfortable to even read about. Overall I liked it but I wouldn't read again.
