Publisher's Summary

Amazon’s #1 Most Unputdownable Book of the Year.

An Amazon Charts bestseller.

A Wall Street Journal bestseller.

A Washington Post bestseller.

From New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes an unexpected love story of secondhand hearts and second chances...

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...

Critic Reviews

“Keeland and Ward double team on this sweet, funny contemporary.... Excellent escapist fodder.” (Publishers Weekly)

Hate Notes is fun, steamy, emotional, and quite the slow burn.” (Harlequin Junkie

“A must-read.... I knew Hate Notes would be an engaging, funny, and seriously sexy romance, and it is. What I didn’t expect was the powerfully delivered, emotionally impactful and memorable storyline that resonated and moved me.” (USA Today’s Happy Ever After)

Beautiful

I laughed out loud, get mad, cried and then laughed some more...what a ride! I was hooked from the very 1st little blue note to the very last. What a beautiful and real story and the narration brought it all to life. Such a lovely and well written story. Sometimes in life we all need a little spark of crazy, it often leads us down a path of beauty that we never could have imagined.

Left me with all kinds of feelings

Oh my goodness - was not expecting that. Sucks you in right from the start. I loved all the characters the banter the angst. My only negative was that it was repetitive in parts - retelling the whole, same thing, to another character but that being said I still read it in one sitting - so I pulled an all nighter . This book left me with all kinds of feelings, moves your heart. Feeling happy but sad, it keeps playing in my head.🥲

Bit unexpected

That was a bit different to the norm. I’m always up for a twist and this one was worth it.

Love note

I loved everything about this audiobook! Great narrators, great characters, great story, great messages, empowerment for life. I rarely leave a review but I wanted to add my voice.

There were a few reviews from naysayers and I could have been put off by them. I’d love to know what stories meet their higher standards.

Expect the unexpected

Not what I expected but completely loved it. The story had me guessing from start to finish and it was really different what I had listened to previously but thoroughly enjoyable.
