The Postcard (The Note #2) by Zoe Folbigg *Publication 1st Aug 2019*

The sequel to the bestselling phenomenon The Note – based on the true story of one girl and her ‘train man’… 

A year after the kiss that brought them together in a snowy train-station doorway, Maya and James are embarking on another journey – this time around the world. 

The trip starts promisingly, with an opulent and romantic Indian wedding. But as their travels continue, Maya fears that ‘love at first sight’ might not survive trains, planes and tuk tuks, especially when she realises that what she really wants is a baby. Trouble is, James doesn’t feel the same. 

Meanwhile Maya’s best friend Nena is struggling with the reality of being a new parent, little knowing that her friend risks losing the love of her life over her dreams of motherhood. 

Can Maya and James navigate their different hopes and dreams to stay together? Or is love at first sight just a myth after all… 

My Thoughts:-

After reading The Note last year, I was looking forward to reading this sequel to discover what happened next for Maya and The Train Man.

Having flown through the book in a day, I’m happy to report that this was a book I enjoyed even more than the first one.

The story follows Maya and James (Train Man) on their travels whilst simultaneously following her best friend Nena in London, who has just become a mum. I can’t comment on the reality of the backpacking stories but the change to your life of becoming a mum was very relatable.

Definitely a good book to read whilst relaxing on holiday – just avoid certain spas (as the book will explain in full detail). There is a good mix of humour, sadness, friendship and twists in the story for the reader to enjoy.

Thanks to NetGalley and Aria for a free digital copy of the book in return for my honest review
