Title: The Note
Author: Zoe Folbigg
Release Date: October 1, 2017
Based on Zoë Folbigg’s true story comes an unforgettable romance about how a little note can change everything…
One very ordinary day, Maya Flowers sees a new commuter board her train to London, and suddenly the day isn’t ordinary at all. Maya knows immediately and irrevocably, that he is The One.
But the beautiful man on the train always has his head in a book and never seems to notice Maya sitting just down the carriage from him every day. Eventually, though, inspired by a very wise friend, Maya plucks up the courage to give the stranger a note asking him out for a drink. Afterall, what’s the worst that can happen?
And so begins a story of sliding doors, missed opportunities and finding happiness where you least expect it.
The Note is an uplifting, life-affirming reminder that taking a chance can change everything…
This is a light romance with some drama thrown in.
Maya is a quirky character who works for a fashion website. I liked all the clothes that she was wearing. They sounded super cute. I also liked her friend Nena. She was an interesting character who I wish was in the story more.
I liked that many different types of relationships were present in the story. There were couples who had been together for years, and new affairs just beginning.
I felt like there were too many characters to keep track of. There were multiple couples who took turns being the focus of the story, as well as all of Maya’s colleagues. The story was also a little long.
If you’re looking for a romantic story with some depth, this one is for you.
