REVIEW: Twitter Girl by Nic Tatano
Author: Nic Tatano
Publisher: Harper Impulse
Publication Date: September, 2014
Genre: Chick Lit
Buy The Book: Amazon | Barnes & Noble
Description: Meet America’s Tweet-Heart.
She’s network reporter Cassidy Shea, better known as @TwitterGirl, with more than a million followers thanks to her sarcastic tweets. One hundred forty characters that can take anyone down a notch.
But while brevity may be the soul of wit, it can also get you fired.
When a controversial tweet goes viral the snarky redhead finds herself locked out of the career she loves… and watches her boyfriend take a hike.
Alas, no industry values sarcasm more than politics, and Cassidy becomes a marketable commodity for Presidential candidate Will Becker, a squeaky-clean, stone cold lock to be the next occupant of the White House. This candidate is unlike any other; he’s the country’s most eligible bachelor. He’s also looking for a running mate, and we’re not talking about a Vice President.
Twitter Girl has caught his eye.
Cassidy finds herself swept up in a whirlwind romance that turns her into the next Jackie Kennedy and becomes the favorite to be the next First Lady. The country can’t get enough of America’s First Couple… will Cassidy and Will Becker bring back Camelot?
But an anonymous tip triggers her journalistic curiosity. Is Will Becker all that he seems? The search for the answer teaches Cassidy the meaning of love.
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this story and love the author’s ability to weave a story so entertaining, featuring characters so vivid and real, that the reader feels a connection to them on a personal level. When the story begins, Cassidy Shea has hit rock bottom in her career and her love life. As @TwitterGirl, she has amassed a following of more than a million people, but when one snarky tweet lands her in hot water, she finds herself without a job and a boyfriend. Nobody is more surprised than Cassidy when she is offered a position with the Presidential campaign team of Will Becker. The job is tailor-made for her, offering her special brand of snark and sarcasm directed at the other candidates. Along the way, she begins to develop feelings for the handsome widower candidate.
This story grabbed my attention fast and wouldn’t let go. I was unable to put the book down because I was so intrigued at what would happen next and not with just the blooming romance between Cassidy and Will. The secondary characters, Ripley, Sam and Tyler, were fascinating as well, each with their own personalities and stories that resonate with the reader without drawing them out of the main story.
Nic Tatano is quickly becoming one of my preferred go-to authors when I am in a chick-lit mood. He captures the humor and fun I crave from this genre flawlessly. I highly recommend this book and anything else written by this author if you are looking for an entertaining read that will make you laugh out loud and leave you with a smile on your face.
