In A New York Minute

April’s book is here!

Happy April, friends! Spring is in FULL swing here in Florida and I always notice an uptick in my reading this time of year as we start heading back to the beach and pool. I’m really enjoying the outdoor spaces before it becomes crazy hot! And this is the book I definitely have tucked in my beach bag.

If you are taking a spring break trip or just looking for a great read this month, we have you covered! This month we are reading In A New York Minute by Kate Spencer and you will LOVE it. It’s the perfect rom-com set against a New York backdrop—it has me itching for a trip to the city!

Quick Summary

The day Franny Doyle is let go from her job is also the day she nearly flashes the entire subway when her dress is shredded by the train doors. Enter Hayes Montgomery III who offers up his (Gucci) suit jacket and comes to her rescue. Unbeknownst to them, someone posts their meet cute and tags it #subwayQTs and soon all of New York is invested. Before too long, Franny and Hayes are running into each other all over the city and wondering if they have more in common than they think.

Why we chose it

From the editors

This book is the classic New York rom-com I’ve been looking for! I devoured it in less than a week and loved every page!

Ashley Brooke

I loved this book! It was a classic, adorable meet-cute combined with so much delightful New York content, it was basically every thing I want in my rom-coms!


If you love a quintessential rom-com you will adore this one! It was filled with all of the best tropes while still feeling fresh and full of chemistry. Is it too soon to already re-read?!
