Text Me On Tuesday by Whitney Dineen and Melanie Summers is a humorous, contemporary romance novel and the first book in An Accidentally in Love Story series. The New York-based story begins when Aimée, whose catering business has been struggling, finally lands a lucrative deal with a prestigious architectural firm run by Noel Fitzwilliam, a relentless workaholic and twin brother to Byron, who is also Noel’s assistant and is more fun-loving. Aimée’s rigorous preparations, however, do not sufficiently prepare her for the events that start to unravel during the day of the luncheon. For starters, a mean, rude senior at the firm, who is allergic to fragrances, demands that Aimée change her outfit that is scented with her sweet-smelling perfume. Her first meeting with Noel also goes nothing like she had expected.

Text Me On Tuesday follows a captivating storyline. Pretending to be his brother Byron, Noel forms a friendship with Aimée who confides in him, thinking all along she is texting Byron. The scenes in the novel are dramatic and embarrassingly funny such as Noel’s first meeting with Aimée and when Noel tries to pull a Whitney Houston performance to win Aimée back. Her texts and conversations with her best friend Teisha are hilarious. As one of the main characters, Aimée is also down-to-earth and determined. I loved that the chapters alternate between Noel's and Aimée’s points-of-view. The style allows for understanding and connecting with both characters. Supporting characters appear natural and are humorous. Text Me On Tuesday by Whitney Dineen and Melanie Summers is an adorable, romantic comedy with two unalike and interesting main characters whose love story contains many funny scenes.

Aimèe moved her catering business from Rochester to New York, hoping to become a household name. Things didn’t go as predicted; she was broke and about to be homeless. Out of the blue, she got a call from an architectural firm to supply the food for a meeting. A major mishap led her into the boss’s bathroom for a change of clothes at the same time that he wanted to use the room. Noel was the boss, a British hunk and an accomplished architect, who had no time for romantic relationships. Nature had other plans. A naked woman and mistaken identities later, his decision morphs into a battlefield of the mind. Read how this pans out in Text Me on Tuesday by Whitney Dineen and Melanie Summers.

Love is never planned because we find it in the strangest places, circumstances, and people. It doesn’t know resolutions, class, or experiences. This was what Text Me on Tuesday by Whitney Dineen and Melanie Summers showcased. I loved the plot, as it was quite unusual yet unique. The storyline was comedic, but with a depth that couldn't be dismissed. I enjoyed the genuine friendship that Teisha and Aimèe shared–holding it down for each other all the way. I also loved the bond shared by Byron and Noel, even though the thought of twins being so different was hilarious. Whitney and Melanie are such talented storytellers, infusing such healthy doses of humor that I felt how happy they are as individuals. I loved the simple writing style and character development. The end was also satisfactory! I can’t wait to check out the series.

Text Me on Tuesday by Whitney Dineen and Melanie Summers follows Aimee Tompkins, a young spirited caterer, who has hopes her business will boom in New York City. But first, she needs a good boost and a new apartment. Thanks to some handy flyers though, she can wow new clients at an esteemed architectural firm. At the head of the firm is Noel Fitzwilliam, a man that has no time for relationships. So, when a small casualty happens, and he finds Aimee naked in his bathroom, he is taken back and perhaps a bit surprised. Both are embarrassed by the incident (as anyone would be). Aimee is horrified—how could Noel keep her on as a caterer after that mess? Noel, on the other hand, doesn’t want to admit Aimee is the whole package and more. He decides to pretend to be his gay twin brother and get to the bottom of what she thinks of him. Sounds like a plan, but we all know it will go somewhere…

I enjoyed the characters' banter both in text and in conversation. The texts were especially realistic in voice—casual and informal. I also thought it amusing that Text Me on Tuesday all started from a suggested idea from a friend (and all with a text to boot). Challenge accepted, right? Dineen and Summers make a perfect writing duo. They are a powerhouse. Their words take readers on a delicious, amusing, and fun journey. I had no problem reading Text Me on Tuesday in a few days. If no kids were running around in my house, I would have finished it in less!
