Beth and Jennifer know their company monitors their office e-mail. But the women still spend all day sending each other messages, gossiping about their coworkers at the newspaper and baring their personal lives like an open book. Jennifer tells Beth everything she can't seem to tell her husband about her anxieties over starting a family. And Beth tells Jennifer everything, period.
When Lincoln applied to be an Internet security officer, he hardly imagined he'd be sifting through other people's inboxes like some sort of electronic Peeping Tom. Lincoln is supposed to turn people in for misusing company e-mail, but he can't quite bring himself to crack down on Beth and Jennifer. He can't help but be entertained-and captivated- by their stories.
But by the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late for him to ever introduce himself. What would he say to her? "Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you." After a series of close encounters and missed connections, Lincoln decides it's time to muster the courage to follow his heart . . . even if he can't see exactly where it's leading him.
This story deserves all the awards. Plus, a five stars rate by everyone. Once again Mrs. Rowell make me feel the love in her book. At least this one has a better ending... and guess what? I love the ending of this story. Like you all know, I'm not a fan of book ending, because they never have what I want, but this one... this one was perfect. Its a love story with happy ending, like "happy ever after" ending.
The POV is from Lincoln's. But we get some chapters where are writen... how to explain them? They are e-mails and Lincoln is reading them (because is his job).Those e-mails are writen by Jennifer and Beth. They tell everything (gossips and personal stuff) there, when they are suppose to be working (they work in a Newspaper office).
Lincoln is the supervisor of all those e-mails. He is suppose to read them and if he sees something not work related in it, he flag them and send them a warning message. Certainly, he ignore sending the warning messages to Jennifer and Beth, because he like reading her mails, plus he falls in love with Jennifer.
Jennifer and Beth lifes are not easy ones. They have problems in their homes, but is not something that they cannot resolve. We enter to their lifes via email and we make their problems our own. As the same as Lincoln's story, but thats other thing.
Read it and you will not regret it.
