No Words by Meg Cabot

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 instalment 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? (from goodreads.com)


I wasn’t sure how to feel going into this book. I read the novella Bridal Boot Camp a couple of years ago and didn’t really like it. It’s felt rushed and incomplete and as an opener to the series, it didn’t really really catch my attention.

But the pinks and the yellows of the cover caught my eye. Add in the fact that it’s a story about a writer’s conference and I knew that I had to give No Words a shot!

I’m glad I did because I really wound up enjoying Jo’s story.

Her relationship (or lack thereof) with Will is a little infuriating because it’s obvious that they like each other, but they don’t know how to make things right. I enjoyed how Will seemed to mess up every interaction he had with Jo. It was cute how he would say something that came out wrong, and then have to scramble to fix it.

That’s something we can all relate to, right?

Meg really did a great job of creative a diverse and interesting group of authors who attend the conference. The other authors who attend with Jo and Will are from a variety of different book genres and age categories and a lot of the group activities they participated in (like hanging out on Will’s boat, or drinking together at the hotel) let to humorous conversations and incidents.

It was so fun as the story unfolded to find out more about Will’s background, and why he is the way he is. While his story is definitely tragic, it was clear that he was just doing the best he could with what he was given in life.

If you’re a fan of Meg Cabot or like reading stories about writers, consider checking out this book. It was funny and cute and made me laugh. It' also made me want to check out the first two books in the series.
