#WOTR23 #YA #SecretAdmirer #seriesStarter – Dear McKinnon, Love Notes book 1 by Danielle Keil

Dear McKinnon (Love Notes, #1)

Everyone knows what it means to have a teal envelope taped to their locker on the first day of the month.

Everyone except new girl McKinnon Gregory.

The envelope is the start of a monthly tradition called the Secret Admirers, and something McKinnon never thought she’d see.

To her surprise– and everyone else’s– the teal envelope is taped to her locker on March first.

McKinnon only has one month to figure out the clues. But she barely knows anyone, which makes it infinitely harder to determine her secret admirer’s identity.

Will she figure it out before the month’s over?
And if she does, will the guy she’s fallen for through letters be just as amazing in person?



Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book.

I am going to start this review by saying your girl here doesn’t read YA.  Nothing against it but I just don’t and haven’t in a long long time. However, this author is about the sweetest and most adorable person in the whole dang world.  I was up on all the books I needed to read and said LET’S DO THIS!!!

I purchased this book and dove right in annnnnd I was hooked.  I freaking LOVED IT!!  I thought the premise of the series was cute and totally enjoyed the “new girl” getting the first letter.

McKinnon/Macks was the new girl who pretty much kept to herself and kept her head down.  She was quiet, shy and totally the book nerd you picture.  She is like WHUUUU when she is given the first letter.  Her bestie Skye was cracking me up.  She was so funny and totally what I would have been like through the process.

The story is sweet and the fact Macks and “Charlie” start to form a great letter friendship that turns to trusting friendship and then a possible romantic relationship.  Loved it!!  I had to admit I was going between 2 guys on the story.  I wasn’t totally sure who the guy was and when it was revealed…my heart was skipping beats.  I mean this was it.  That was the time for Macks to decide what she does….does she accept him or not???

Seriously I enjoyed the story 110%.  I will be picking up the others and reading when I can because I want to see Spencer’s book!!
