Meet America’s Tweet-Heart.
She’s network reporter Cassidy Shea, better known as @TwitterGirl, with more than a million followers thanks to her sarcastic tweets. One hundred forty characters that can take anyone down a notch.
But while brevity may be the soul of wit, it can also get you fired.
When a controversial tweet goes viral the snarky redhead finds herself locked out of the career she loves… and watches her boyfriend take a hike.
Alas, no industry values sarcasm more than politics, and Cassidy becomes a marketable commodity for Presidential candidate Will Becker, a squeaky-clean, stone cold lock to be the next occupant of the White House. This candidate is unlike any other; he’s the country’s most eligible bachelor. He’s also looking for a running mate, and we’re not talking about a Vice President.
Twitter Girl has caught his eye.
Cassidy finds herself swept up in a whirlwind romance that turns her into the next Jackie Kennedy and becomes the favorite to be the next First Lady. The country can’t get enough of America’s First Couple… will Cassidy and Will Becker bring back Camelot?
But an anonymous tip triggers her journalistic curiosity. Is Will Becker all that he seems? The search for the answer teaches Cassidy the meaning of love.

You may have recently read my review for It Girl, by Nic Tatano, which was the first I’d read by him and I absolutely loved it; so Twitter Girl had some pretty big shoes to fill!
Luckily, this new, snarky redhead stepped into them with ease.
Cassidy Shea is a wonderfully written heroine. She’s sassy, beautiful and fun, and again Nic Tatano had me desperately rooting for things to turn out right for her. I loved her. Being an avid twitter user myself, I love the whole idea of her position, and could totally imagine how well something like that could work. I also love how current this makes it.
Twitter Girl has an array of wonderful characters, such as Cassidy’s sweet and inspirational younger brother, Sam, her fabulous best friend, Ripley, and adorable new friend from work, Tyler. All were really well developed characters that I instantly loved and I was just as interested in seeing how they and their relationships developed. The relationship between Cassidy and Sam was particularly heart warming, and it was lovely to see how much she looked up to her younger brother, and how well he looked out for her. Tyler is an absolute sweetie pie; I loved his character and his similarities to Sam, which sparks a friendship there too. I had so much love and respect for both these boys.
As for Will, well, he’s a gorgeous, charming man who’s set to be the next President of the United States, what’s not to like? Let’s be honest, I’m sure a lot of women may dream about being the next First Lady – especially beside such a catch of a man! (I’m British, so I want to be a Princess, naturally, but I get the appeal!) But as the strange anonymous tips start, I couldn’t help but be as intrigued as Cassidy was, and equally unsure of what to believe, desperately hoping that it didn’t ruin a happy ending for her. When she uncovered the truth, I was genuinely shocked and thought this was a brilliant plot twist.
It’s a brilliantly funny book, with some truly touching moments too, and a mystery you’re desperate to solve.
Another wonderful read from Nic Tatano.
