Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder, coworkers at The Courier, know the newspaper monitors their ofﬁce e-mail. But they still spend all day sending each other messages, gossiping about their coworkers, and baring their personal lives like an open book. Jennifer tells Beth everything she can t seem to tell her husband about her anxieties over starting a family. And Beth tells Jennifer everything, period. Meanwhile, Lincoln O Neill still can t believe that it s his job to monitor other people s e-mail. When he applied to be an Internet security officer, he pictured himself protecting the newspaper from dangerous hackers not sending out memos every time somebody in Accounting forwarded an off-color joke to the person in the next cubicle. Lincoln is supposed to turn people in for misusing company e-mail, but he can t quite bring himself to crack down on Beth and Jennifer. He can t help being entertained and captivated by their stories. But by the time Lincoln realizes he s falling for Beth, it s way too late for him to ever introduce himself. What would he say to her? Hi, I m the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you? With snapping dialogue and irresistible charm, Rainbow Rowell transforms an ordinary IT guy into a lovable and endearing romantic hero and proves that falling in love never happens the way you plan it. Written with whip-smart precision and charm, Attachments is a fresh and energetic debut that marks the arrival of an exciting new voice in ﬁction."
