AttachmentseBook - 2011
Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.
Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now--reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be "internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers--not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.
When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. 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 to introduce himself. What would he even say...?

This book inspires dial-up tones and the steady click of keyboards, just like in "You've Got Mail." Fans of Nora Ephron's charming style of story-telling will fall head-over-heels for this lovely book written by Rainbow Rowell.
Beth and Jennifer know their company monitors emails, but the women still message each other about their lives, relationships, office gossip, etc. Lincoln, the Internet security officer, can't bring himself to crack down on the women as he starts falling for Beth through their captivating stories.
