Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐



Malachi Keogh finds himself in a job he neither wanted nor asked for when his father, boss of Sydney’s postal service, sends him to the end of the business line, aka The Dead Letter Office. Malachi expects tedious and boring but instead discovers a warehouse with a quirky bunch of misfit co-workers, including a stoic and nerdy boss, Julian Pollard.
Malachi’s intrigued by Julian at first, and he soon learns there’s more to the man than his boring clothes of beige, tan, and brown; a far cry from Malachi’s hot pink, lilac, and electric blue. Where Julian is calm and ordered, Malachi is chaos personified, but despite their outward differences, there’s an immediate chemistry between them that sends Malachi’s head—and heart—into a spin.
To keep his father happy, Malachi needs to keep this job. He also needs to solve the mystery of the pile of old letters that sits in Julian’s office and maybe get to the bottom of what makes Julian tick. Like everything that goes through the mail centre, only time will tell if Malachi has found his intended destination or if he’ll find himself returned to sender.


My new favourite N R Walker novel!! This was absolutely hilarious and has a swoon worthy romance!!!

Malachi is one of the best characters I’ve ever read! I love characters that ramble when nervous and Malachi’s word vomit is unlike any other🤣🤣🤣

And Julian was so perfect and they were totally adorable together. Julian and Malachi had great chemistry and I’d highly recommend this book if you want a heartwarming comfort read!

I loved all the workplace characters, each quirky in their own little ways and their friendship was so good. The letters made me incredibly happy and overall I really enjoyed this surprise release!!! It was really cute and sometimes you just need a no angst funny novel. An absolute delight!

N.R. Walker Bio

N.R. Walker is an Australian author, who loves her genre of gay romance. She loves writing and spends far too much time doing it, but wouldn’t have it any other way.
She is many things: a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who live in her head, who don’t let her sleep at night unless she gives them life with words.
She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things… but likes it even more when they fall in love.
She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.

She’s been writing ever since…
