Meg Mackworth is known as “the Planner of Park Slope” and uses her hand lettering skills and creativity to design custom journals and planners for the rich and influential in New York City. Lately, she’s really feeling the pressure of all the work and suffering from a creative block – not exactly a good thing when she’s trying to complete the pitch of a lifetime. She’s not sure why she keeps growing more and more estranged from her best friend and roommate. So when a former client shows up at the shop where she works and confronts her about the wedding program she designed for him and his fiancée, a beautifully decorated piece where she hid the word “mistake” from everyone, or so she believed. Reid Sutherland is a financial analyst who’s excellent at spotting patterns, and he wants to know how Meg could be so sure that his relationship was doomed even before the wedding took place.
Meg obviously feels bad for Reid and admits that her action was rather unprofessional. She apologises and reckons that she’s unlikely to ever see the handsome man again. She’s surprised to hear that not only is he not married, but he’s also shortly going to be leaving New York, claiming he never really liked it there. As Meg adores New York, she decides to apologise to Reid by trying to make him see the magic of the city, which she figures might help her find new inspiration for her work, as well. She plans a number of walking tours and invites Reid along. He not only agrees to come with her, but he also challenges her to little games and friendly competitions while they wander. The more time they spend with each other, the more their attraction grows. But is there any future for the two of them if Reid is going to be leaving the city soon?
