Luke Schumaker designs computer games, working from his home. Every day he walks his dog in the woods nearby, never suspecting that someone who is completely smitten is watching.
The watcher is Alex Shaw, and he too works from home, designing logic and crossword puzzles. Alex’s options are limited: he’s too shy to approach Luke and his wheelchair won’t let him follow into the woods. His solution? Secret messages for Luke in the crosswords he writes for the local paper.
When Luke decodes them, romance begins, but then they face greater puzzles, like Alex’s interfering sister and what commitment to a man in a wheelchair really takes. And, most puzzling of all, how do you know if love is real?

Short, sweet, funny and endearing. A great feel-good short story!
I love a good short story and this one had so much laughter and heart. Alex and Luke are so cute together and play off each other so well. I really enjoyed the whole story and especially the unique crossword based meet-cute of sorts. I was surprised that so much happens in this book and there is such a diversity of emotional challenges that often aren’t even present in long books and Ms. Eli has mastered the emotional complexities of this relationship so well and in so few words. A true talent.
I found this book so sweet and cute and while I hate the misunderstandings that present, I loved the journey to healing, forgiveness and a happily ever after that will give you all the feels! A really enjoyable novella with endearing geekiness and all the feels, highly recommended!!
