Teresa Medeiros has a light, engaging touch with a story. She makes it real, drawing you into this relationship which, in this modern age, starts tentatively via Twitter. Her wit and humour balance the emotion that is ultimately drawn forth.
I enjoyed this so much that I bought a copy as a Christmas gift for a friend.

A very surprising read... I was not expecting much as this was a very small novel and about something that I really haven't delved into for any great length of time - Twitter.

Having read books using social mediums (e-mail) in the past, I knew that it was something that interested me but seeing conversations take place in 140 characters of less really did make for a quick read. The dialouge flowed and it never felt like I was missing out on any of the necessary details of either of the main characters lives.

Abby and Mark have an instant connection and while it feels a bit 'too good to be true', it is endearing. I was concerned for Abby that she would end up falling in love with some random 'internet creeper', but was happy when it turned out she didn't. Mark is just the man she was hoping. Dreams really do come true... who knew?

Overall, in what should have been a predictable book, there were enough twists and turns that it became a page-flipper. A great read and you don't even have to be a Twitter fanatic!!

This was a cute little novel. A quick and easy read, Good Night Tweetheart took me only a few hours to finish and had me grinning by the end. Initially I was a bit wary of this novel. I can see how friendships develop online through this relatively new medium, but love? It took a little convincing for me, especially being leery about meeting men online myself and I know it happens, probably more frequently than I'm even aware, but I still wasn't sure I could be convinced. In the end though, I had a smile plastered on my face.

Abigail, a best selling author whose writers block since her father's untimely passing has kept her frozen, both in her writing and even in her apartment, reluctantly goes on Twitter at the direction of her agent. Fumbling around the new medium, she finds herself in a conversation with a stranger, a man. And when they start conversing regularly she finds herself looking forward to their conversations and eventual `dates' and finds herself drawn to a man in the most unlikely of places for her.

Teresa Medieros was brilliant at adapting this story into tweets. There weren't many short forms, or confusing conversations. It all flowed easily and effortlessly. I have to sometimes fumble around to get my tweets within the character limit and marveled at times with her ability to convey her point in such few words. Because I'm well versed in the way of twitter for the most part, I could understand and relate to much of what was happening, but I'm unsure if someone who wasn't could, even with the explanations provided. I think they would though, but overall the story isn't as much in the details of twitter, but what is spoken through the medium.

In the end I smiled away with this warm and lighthearted read. Anyone looking for a light, cute and smile filled read with a technological spin on romance will appreciate this one.

You've Got Mail meets 2010 and Nicholas Sparks. Nov. 30 2010
By LCLittle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I couldn't put it down because it's a fast read once you get used to reading the tweets. It actually starts out feeling like you're reading a play narration except with only dialogue. But as you delve into it, it feels more like you're a voyeur on someone's facebook posts and profile messages. You want to keep turning the pages to find out what else happens between the two main characters and what other jokes and ridiculous pop culture and book references these two will exchange. Parts of this will make you sad and parts will make you cheer for Abby as she lets go of a previous relationship and learns to move on and face life's challenges and find the strength to let people (in this case Mark) in. I think the ending was great because it allows you to think about it. This is a good read and it almost made me wake up my hubby so I could tell him the great story I'd just read.

The modern epistolary tale Dec 4 2010
By Jennifer Kydd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a Medeiros fan, and this is a leap away from her usual historical romances. It's a novel told in epistolary fashion, consisting almost entirely of tweets. And for those of you living under a rock and don't know what a tweet is (*insert grin*), tweets are the 140 characters less you'll find from users of Twitter. For those of us who adore Twitter and the way it allows us to interact with others quickly, you'll love the fast-paced dialogue of this book, reminiscent of "The Gilmore Girls." Full of pop culture references and iconic witticisms, I found myself laughing at author Abigail Donovan as she connected with Mark Baynard.

Abby hasn't been able to move on from chapter five of her novel after experiencing smashing success with her debut novel. The pressure is getting to her, and as part of her daily ritual of avoiding her writing, she joins Twitter. The first person to tweet at her is Mark, and Mark is far more interesting--and inspiring--than anything else Abby has had contact with recently.

Mark and Abby start a funny flirtation, going on "dates" via Twitter and chatting late into the night with direct messages. But Mark has a secret he's keeping from Abby, and Abby has some of her own demons to contend with. Will they overcome their obstacles to finally meet?

You'll have to read to find out, but this novel is certainly not a chore. If you're looking for a quick, funny, upbeat, tender story of two people learning to live and love again, this is your novel.

Loved it Dec 7 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Abigail Donovan should be finally finishing her second book but is afraid that she will not be able to write another bestseller. So she is stuck at chapter 5 and has been for years. When her publicist sets up a twitter account for Abby things begin to change. Her first tweet is answered by someone named MarkBaynard and soon they start to "meet" regularly on twitter. Both have similar tastes in movies and tv series and their discussions never get boring. In contrary Mark manages to get Abby back to believing in herself and her writing ability. They even have virtual dates and get to know each other pretty well. But just when Abby is ready to take the next step and meet Mark in real life he confesses that he lied about important parts of his life.
Will they ever get a chance to meet in real life?

"Goodnight Tweetheart" was a fascinating and emotional book. It made me smile and then cry (more often than I usually like while reading).
The first part of the book is full of witty remarks and all in all very entertaining. I had to laugh a lot and enjoyed getting to know Abby and Mark. I loved the pop culture references and the way Abby and Mark greeted and said good bye to each other in their tweets.
The use of twitter and tweets worked perfectly for me and Teresa Medeiros' way to write them was wonderful. I often struggle with the 140 characters you have in twitter and wish that I could be so eloquent, witty and precise like Abby & Mark when tweeting. I don't think that you have to use twitter to understand what's going on or to enjoy the book. However it's a plus if you know a bit about tweeting. Large parts of the book are tweets however there are also text passages and these are used to show what happens in Abby's life.
In the middle of the story the atmosphere suddenly changes. Mark confesses something that alters everything. I assumed that something about Mark's story wasn't true but never would have guessed what exactly. I actually understood his reason to lie and in the end it helped Abby to start anew and enjoy life again. Abby's way to deal with Mark's lies felt right to me and I liked that in the end she went after what she wanted.
I don't want to reveal too much about the story but some parts are so sad however there's always hope. The book has an open end and you can be sure that my imagination started to write a wonderful Happy Ever After for Mark and Abby right after I read the last sentence.

cover
Love the cover because it's pretty and fits perfectly to the story.

final appraisal
"Goodnight Tweetheart" is a book I loved reading although it made me cry. But it also made me smile a lot and I was always excited to read the next sentence and to learn more about Mark and Abby.
I was fascinated by the light-hearted first part of the story and also by the serious second part. In my imagination Mark and Abby will get a beautiful Happy Ever After because they deserve it.

food for thought. Dec 18 2010
By Beatriz Jaramillo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
i loved this book.. the humor,wit, cynicism involved in it was just outrageously funny. it could be easily labeled as a "chick-lit" sort of romance book, but i think there is so much more than that.. is sort of a Nickolas Sparks types infused with hillarious sarcasm that makes the book so delighful.

the reason im giving it 4 starts its because i would of wished a longer story. specially the ending. Medeiros was thoroughly descriptive, yet the real action felt short. thats where i had the problem with the book. other than that, its one hell of a book!!

BookHounds [...] Dec 31 2010
By Mary Bookhounds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Finally, You've Got Mail updated for the 21st century. I knew someone had to do a twitter book and I was thrilled that the first one I read was pitch perfect. Yes, this will be the romantic twitter book that all others will be judged by in my little world. I can totally see this one as a movie. You will have to have a bit of twitter-ese to understand parts of the book. Medeiros does a great job of working in those details.

The witty, little bon mots are what I live for in a book like this. Abby and Mark come across as real people even though you only get a bit about Mark from his writing and Abby's theories about him. Of course, the book is a condensed version of a normal romance, but the emotion, word play and appeal are all there.
Of course, there is a bit of a twist at the end, which was nicely done and kept the story from becoming entirely predictable and too sweet.
