I am very happy to be on the blog tour for The Postcard today. Please do check out the other stops on the tour.
About The Book
‘Heart-warming, wonderful escapism and brimming with charm. I marvelled!’ Christie Barlow
‘I absolutely LOVED this! The Note was fabulous and this follow-up was a real treat!’ Mandy Baggot
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, and James doesn’t feel the same.
Can Maya and James navigate their different hopes and dreams to stay together? Or is love at first sight just a myth after all…
Perfect for fans of One Day in December, Our Stop and Marian Keyes. The Postcard continues the once-in-a-lifetime love story that readers so took to their hearts.
From the cover and the synopsis, you’d be forgiven for thinking this was a simple easy going novel about a couple travelling around the world – but you’d be wrong. The book starts with a surprising beginning which confused me a little as I didn’t see how it would have any bearing on the story. However, this sub plot wove into the main story quite well and although I felt the story started a little slowly, it soon picked up and I wanted to find out more.
This is the second book in a series, following on from ‘The Note’, however this could easily be read as a stand alone book too. You find out a little about James and Maya’s back story throughout ‘The Postcard’. I liked the different POV’s – it was nice to see Maya’s friends given some time to develop their stories too.
I found the few pages towards to the end incredibly gripping as it came to a climax and it really shows that this book isn’t what you’d necessarily expect. I really enjoyed the book and will definitely be checking out more of the author’s work.
