Title: Textual Encounters
Author: Morgan Parker
Genre: Romance
Tour Host: Lady Amber’s Tours



Katie discovers an unlocked iPhone in the back seat of a taxi. But instead of turning it in to the driver as lost, she decides to keep it for herself. Outside of the usual clutter you would expect to find on a smartphone, what captures Katie’s interest is the single conversation she finds on the phone’s secure text messaging service, a three-month dialogue between a woman with an uncertain past named Christine and a single, eligible man named Jake. What starts out as a message intended for someone else ends up being the beginning of a relationship more powerful than anything Christine or Jake have ever experienced.


For a brief moment in time while sitting in the cab, the stars align. I realize just how rare these moments are and decide to take advantage of it. I make a quick, mental shopping list of all of those other big things my parents never gave me – the Spring Break trip to Miami Beach for my senior year in high school, the congratulatory BMW for getting accepted to Columbia, the hot boyfriend who was supposed to propose after fourth year and help me avoid the hectic life that typically follows med school. Okay, maybe I couldn’t blame my parents for not getting me that last item, but if the Universe could deliver an iPhone, it sure as hell can find me a husband.

With my wish list ready and the iPhone in my lap, I close my eyes and channel all my energy, every last ounce of it, at the Universe. And that’s when it happens. The phone actually starts vibrating. My eyes shoot open and I look down in shock.

My review:

This book was a very interesting read. I am still left not so sure how I feel about. Did I like it? Or am I confused? It ended in a huge cliffhanger which left you wanting to read the sequel which is the sign of a well designed book. There are three main characters: Katie, Christine and Jake. Christine and Jake meet by accident due to a wrong number and begin a torrid affair. Over a series of text messages(read by Katie) you find out a lot about the characters but there is always a sense that they are both hiding something. The story is fast paced and rapid in it’s delivery. It’s a very good vacation read.
