Meg Cabot, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Princess Diaries, returns to Little Bridge Island with a new story about a children’s book author with a case of writer’s block and an arrogant novelist who have to set aside their differences as they get through a weekend long book festival that just might change everything—including their feelings for each other.

Don’t Judge a Book by Its Author...

Welcome to Little Bridge, one of the smallest, most beautiful islands in the Florida Keys.

Jo Wright always swore she’d never step foot on Little Bridge Island—not as long as her nemesis, bestselling author Will Price, is living there.

Then Jo’s given an offer she can’t refuse: an all-expense paid trip to speak and sign at the island’s first ever book festival.

Even though arrogant Will is the last person Jo wants to see, she could really use the festival’s more-than-generous speaking fee. She’s suffering from a crippling case of writer’s block on the next installment of her bestselling children’s series, and her father needs financial help as well.

Then Jo hears that Will is off-island on the set of the film of his next book. Hallelujah!

But when she arrives on Little Bridge, Jo is in for a shock: Will is not only at the book festival, but seems genuinely sorry for his past actions—and more than willing not only to make amends, but prove to Jo that he’s a changed man.

Things seem to be looking up—until disaster strikes, causing Jo to wonder: Do any of us ever really know anyone?

My Review:

No Words by Meg Cabot is the third installment in her popular Little Bridge Island Series. I have not read the other books and felt No Words is perfect as a stand-alone book. It’s a book about authors, and that made this especially fun. It’s light, humorous but with enough emotional depth to make it a satisfying read as well.

Jo Wright is a successful children’s author, who’s famous for her series Kitty Katz about teenage cats. Her agent convinces her to attend a book festival in Little Bridge, Florida and Jo decides to go because she needs the money, and her agent promised her that Jo’s arch-nemesis, Will Price will not be there. A few years back, Will Price insulted Jo by name and insulted Children’s authors in general, and Jo has not forgotten his betrayal. Of course, as soon as Jo walks off the plane, she sees Will and finds out he will be at the Festival.

No Words is fast-paced, hilarious, and just plain fun. I enjoyed being in Bridge Island and although I have not read the previous books in the series, it was fun to meet up with some of the characters from the previous books. Jo and Will were great enemies to lover’s characters. Their past interactions were mostly misunderstandings and they both have to relieve themselves of their past histories in order to form a friendship and then more.

I recommend No Words to anyone who enjoys a good rom-com. I received a complimentary copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

  1. Wonderful review Wendy. I really liked this story and did not read the previous ones either. I have been remiss in posting my review for it, so it is on my list for tomorrow.

  2. It sounds like a lighthearted fun read! Knowing that it works as a standalone park next to the easy one to add to my to be read list 🙂 take good care!
