The Note by Zoe Folbigg



AuthorBased 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…




Great Characters & Good Writing all add up to a fab read! 5startr


This is a really sweet story .. both in the love and the baking stakes! All the better for being based on a true story.

Maya is a three-dimensional character .. happy with her plum job in fashion and has just moved from living with her brother into her very own home which may need a bit of tlc, but it’s hers. She has pastimes out of work hours, a very good friend in Nena, but sadly seems to be missing out on love. This novel follows Maya through lots of ups and downs and it makes for great entertainment. Like all the best reads, this one has a bit of sadness and we go back in time to find out everything which has led to where Maya is now – but that’s not the full story. Life has a lot more in store for this fashion genius.

I definitely enjoyed this one .. plenty happening to keep me glued to the page. Great characters, good writing and a few high spots and disappointments all add up to a really fabulous read, and one which I happily recommend.

My thanks to Aria fiction for letting me read this arc via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.




The Note is Zoe Folbigg’s debut novel.
