About The Accidental Text
Wrong number. Right guy?
Once upon a time, Maggie Cooper lived for adventure. Jumping out of planes was child’s play. Now she can’t even work up the nerve to ask out her coworker. For a bit of self-therapy, she begins to text her recently deceased mother’s phone—the only problem is that the number has been reassigned and for weeks she’s been unknowingly texting a stranger her deepest thoughts and feelings. There have also been some not-so-deep texts, like the ones about her appreciation for her coworker’s butt.
When Chase Beckett, the unsuspecting stranger who has more in common with Maggie than he’d like to admit, texts back, Maggie is beyond mortified. But message after message and night after night, Maggie realizes that Chase’s wit, charm, and advice are exactly what the doctor ordered. Is it enough, though, to get her back up in the sky? And what about her heart? Can she risk taking a leap of faith for the man on the other end of her accidental texts?
This book was not quite what I expected from the title. But I loved the way it was written. Becky Monson did such a great job with the whole book. The characters almost jumped off the pages. It was so good!
I almost felt Maggie’s grief at the loss of her mom. I loved how she sent her old number texts of how she was feeling. Just thinking everything was okay, because her mom’s phone was on the shelf in her dad’s office and he’d told her he’d keep the number. I really loved the way Maggie learned about herself and about her grief as the story went along. She learned that life won’t always stay that same and that it’s okay to change with it. And she met someone she could help as well.
I loved how Chase responded to Maggie’s texts to her mom. Could you even imagine getting someone’s old phone number like that and getting the heart wrenching texts Maggie was sending? I loved how these two were able to meet and become close, through shared experiences. And it was really funny how Maggie didn’t tell her family how they met, until she absolutely had to. That was a funny scene!
I really liked this book!
