About It Started with a Note
It’s their second chance at love—but this time their obstacles include thousands of miles, a cultural barrier, and a world-famous chocolate empire.
Avery Parks is proud of her farm girl upbringing, and now she loves her job in Admissions at the local college. But it’s nice and predictable, just like every other aspect of her life. Maybe it’s time to take a huge risk and have an adventure of her own by traveling to Belgium to see her childhood friend.
Nicolas Servais hasn’t chosen much about his life—not that the son of a world-famous chocolatier empire can complain. He’s in line to inherit the prestigious CEO position from his controlling mother whether he wants it or not. The only thing he’s ever truly chosen for himself was a foreign exchange experience as a teenager in farming country, USA—and with it, the unforgettable Avery Parks.
When Avery comes to visit him in Brussels, he decides to show her a vacation of a lifetime. It’ll be one last hurrah for him before he steps into the position he was born to fill and never really wanted.
As Nicolas immerses Avery in a world vastly different from her own, she finds herself attracted to the man he’s become. But as much as she’s growing to love his charming city and its people, their lives couldn’t possibly be more opposite. With Nicolas’s disapproving mother and living in a high-stakes upper-class world, the obstacles that lay between them feel far more impossible than a few thousand miles.
This trip has been all about Avery taking risks, but falling for Nicolas Servais might be the one risk that she should never ever take.
I’m loving this series by Meg Easton! Her characters just shine. They jump off the page and make me want to know them in real life. I loved everything about this book. It just made me happy!
Avery is such a great character. I loved the way she was searching for something more in her life. And that lead her to writing a note to Nicholas, the young man who was an exchange student in her home. She and her sister fly to Belgium to spend time with him. I loved the way Avery just made everyone around them feel as though they were her very best friend. And I loved that she learned a lot about herself and grew throughout the book.
Nicholas needed to grow as well. I loved the way he learned how to stand up to his family when he needed to. The parts with Nicholas were some of my favorite. His family runs a chocolate shop. And he dreams of being over developing new chocolates.
I loved the feel of Belgium in this one. It made me want to go visit, see all the sights and eat ALL the chocolate. You really need to read this one!
This one is the second book in the series. I think you could read It Started with a Sunset first, because you’re going to want to, anyway! But you don’t have to.
I was sent a copy of It Started with a Note as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
