Franny Doyle is having the worst day. She’s been laid off from her (admittedly mediocre) job, the subway doors ripped her favorite silk dress to ruins, and now she’s flashed her unmentionables to half of lower Manhattan. On the plus side, a dashing stranger came to her rescue with his (Gucci!) suit jacket. On the not-so-plus side, he can’t get away from her fast enough.

Worse yet? Someone posted their (entirely not) meet-cute online. Suddenly Franny and her knight-in-couture, Hayes Montgomery III, are the newest social media sensation, and all of New York is shipping #SubwayQTs.

Only Franny and Hayes couldn’t be a more disastrous match. She’s fanciful, talkative, and creative. He’s serious, shy, and all about numbers. Luckily, in a city of eight million people, they never have to meet again. Yet somehow, Hayes and Franny keep running into each other—and much to their surprise, they enjoy each other’s company. A lot. But when Franny’s whole world is turned upside down (again!), can she find the courage to trust in herself and finally have the life—and love—she’s always wanted?


Amusing, flirty, and Charming!

In a New York Minute is a heartwarming, comical tale that takes you into the lives of the quirky, creative Franny and the handsome, successful Hayes Montgomery III as they navigate a relationship that includes a subway meet-cute that goes instantaneously viral, lifestyles that are worlds apart, awkward interactions, romantic moments, and undeniable chemistry.

The writing is whimsical and smooth. The characters are fun-loving, feisty, and endearing. And the plot is an irresistible blend of tricky situations, tender moments, humorous hijinks, self-discovery, light drama, friendship, family, happiness, and swoon-worthy romance.

Overall, In a New York Minute is a funny, enjoyable, highly entertaining treat by Spencer that I not only devoured in one sitting but absolutely loved.
