I’m so excited to chat about In A New York Minute. Wasn’t it *the* most fun read?! It was one of those books I where I was rooting for the main character the entire time. And the meet-cute was hysterical… I feel like we’ve all been there in one way or another.

I just loved this book and can definitely see myself re-reading it in the future. It truly was the perfect beach read. Well done, Kate Spencer!

  1. 1. Having the “hot suit” meeting opportunity definitely set them up to get together in the end. Who doesn’t want to see a fantastic how we met story? Their meeting had enough tension to create a strong buildup to them getting together!

    2. I loved Cleo and Lola. A “sisterhood of the traveling pants” style story about Cleo, Lola and Franny and their friendship as they navigate their new lives would be great.

    3. Franny clearly needed Hayes and he was ready to support her by canceling his work obligations. I wish the author didn’t create the conflict like this and allowed Hayes to support her while her mom was ill.

  2. 1. Hayes and Franny’s meet-cute is captured on video and goes viral—do you think having people invested in them made them more or less likely to get together?

    I think less likely because it seemed to create more pressure for them to be together. Both external because of people’s expectations and internal because they were both a little embarrassed by the situation.

    2.Spencer did a great job with the supporting characters and storylines. Which character or story would you want to read a whole book about?

    Eleanor and Henry for sure!

    3.Why do you think Franny was so quick to shut Hayes out when her mom was sick? Did you find this to be a believable reaction or just a way to create conflict in their relationship?

    They had so many stops and starts along the way, I was really rooting for that to be a way for them to finally solidify their relationship. Hayes seemed ready to fully commit and change some of the habits that ended his first marriage and I was disappointed Franny didn’t see that at first.

    I definitely think more likely. I think we have all had moments that you wish you had either talked more or gotten contact info after (not just romantically) The fact that their meeting was caught on camera and and received attention definitely helped them get together. Franny was not in the headspace to see the moment for what it was and the fact that they kept getting thrown together gave her the time and opportunity she needed to let the relationship grow. I think if not for this, she would have never sought Hayes out again.

    I would love to read more about Eleanor and her growing family 🙂

    Why do you think Franny was so quick to shut Hayes out when her mom was sick? Did you find this to be a believable reaction or just a way to create conflict in their relationship?

    At first, I was a little annoyed by this. They were getting along so well and making some serious progress in their relationship and this reaction seemed so sudden and contrived (by the author). BUT I will say, If I lied to my mom about something and then something happened to her, I think I might “act out” too…

  4. I really enjoyed this pick!

    1. I think it definitely made them more likely to get together—the unusual experience kept drawing them toward one another.

    2. I’d love to read a book about Hayes’ cousin Perrine or his business partner Eleanor!

    3. For so much of the book, Franny really wanted to please her mom. And the one time she told her mom “no,” something bad happened and she felt incredibly guilty. But…I don’t think her reaction was believable. This was my least favorite part of the book. I understand the author needed to create some conflict, but it was pretty extreme. Other than that, I was a big fan!

  5. 1.

    Hayes and Franny’s meet-cute is captured on video and goes viral—do you think having people invested in them made them more or less likely to get together?

    Definitely more likely in the sense of them having to see other again and being “bound” by such a weird incident. Although, I can also see it being less likely because they both tried to ignore the situation.

    2.

    Spencer did a great job with the supporting characters and storylines. Which character or story would you want to read a whole book about?

    Eleanor!! But the two sisters would have been really neat to read. I’d also love to read a sequel where Hayes and franny travel to Italy!

    3.

    Why do you think Franny was so quick to shut Hayes out when her mom was sick? Did you find this to be a believable reaction or just a way to create conflict in their relationship?

    I think her lies and guilt caught up with her! She felt bad and just shut down instead of facing what she was dealing with.

  6. 1. Hayes and Franny’s meet-cute is captured on video and goes viral—do you think having people invested in them made them more or less likely to get together?

    I think they totally had a spark from the get go, but ABSOLUTELY YES. How could it not have?! They were forced to see each other again and chat. Also, subconsciously I think they knew in the back of their minds that the public saw a good match in them, which is an added bonus.

    2. Spencer did a great job with the supporting characters and storylines. Which character or story would you want to read a whole book about?

    I would love to hear more about Hayes’ business partner! Her life seemed so interesting!

    3. Why do you think Franny was so quick to shut Hayes out when her mom was sick? Did you find this to be a believable reaction or just a way to create conflict in their relationship?

    I think she was just totally freaked out, and her lying didn’t really help. Part of me feels like it was kind of believable, but also, after their romantic weekend it just feels a little out of place. In my opinion!

    • 1) It definitely seemed to help seeing each other again at the interview for the news. Something to be said for wanting something more when you see it more than once.

      2) I would read a second book on Franny and her sister! That would be great!

      3) I think it was understandable she lashed out since she missed being with her mom to spend more time with him. It was a little bit dramatic and played up for a conflict for them but true to Franny’s character.
