Save as Draft is a novel told completely in text messages and emails. It is the story of Izzy, a lawyer in Atlanta who joins an online dating website and meets Marty. He seems like a nice, sweet guy. After one date she dumps him in favor of her best friend, Peter. This is a fun, fast read about the pitfalls of online romance and relationships.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Lee, a federal prosecutor by day, makes a foray into chick lit with this autobiographical novel told entirely through e-mail, text, and Web exchanges. Tedious early chapters, during which bubbly protagonist Izabell 'Izzy' Chin connects with an eHarmony hopeful named Martin, give way to a winning mix of humor and pathos. After a successful first date, Izzy dumps Martin for her best friend Peter; the two fall hard and get engaged, but the whirlwind coincides with Peter getting a demanding new job. E-mail, Facebook, or text missives show the spark fading as Peter gives in to his workaholic boss's demands and Izzy drifts back to Martin. Lee's inherently intimate format succeeds most when a character's thoughts are revealed in unsent e-mails ('save as Draft'), revealing the outcomes that could have been had more fearless actions been taken and how matters are misinterpreted and misunderstood. Lee further complicates her formal stew with comic exchanges between friends addressing online dating and the true nature of marriage with decidedly mixed results. This is an honest and oddly relatable novel that unfolds in a sometimes clunky format. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
"Synopsis" by , SAVE AS DRAFT @Readers A love triangle evolving over e-mails, texts, and Facebook messages that makes you wonder if the things we leave unsaid—or rather unsent—could change the story of our lives.

"Synopsis" by , A love triangle unfolding in the electronic age illustrates all that can go wrong (and right) by this new form of (mis)communication.
