Summary:   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. (Goodreads)

My Review:
  I normally don't read a lot of "normal" romance novels. But Goodnight Tweetheart was a book that I had heard nothing but great things about, so I knew that I had to at least give it a try seeing as I am a twitterholic and figured that this would be a lighthearted fun read.
 I can't believe how GREAT the book really was. I was expecting a fluffy romance where two people meet online and then meet in real life, instead what I got was a wonderful romance/comedy/tearjerker. I laughed at the DM's between main character's Abigail "Abby" Donovan and Mark Baynard. The story of Abby having trouble writing her second book, and her agent's push to get on Twitter is something that I can actually see going on in a writer's life.  With the imagery that Teresa Medeiros " paints" as Mark, makes me feel as if I am traveling to all the wonderful places that him and Abby talk about. Throughout the book, I began to fall for Mark just like I could see Abby doing. The twist toward the end of the book, had me almost in tears and I knew that I would have to keep the tissues handy, and I am so glad that I did.
