I do love romance and hand written notes, so when I read what this was about I jumped at the chance to join the blog tour. It sounded interesting and something I would really enjoy. I thought the name of the book was clever and witty. Thank you for letting me part of a fab tour. Plus I have read My Great Ex-Scape by Portia which was brilliant.
Could a post-it note really lead to love…?
Sadie doesn’t have time for finding love. She’s too busy as PA for famous artist Damian Banks. When she’s not arranging exhibitions, she’s organising his dry cleaning or dumping his never ending stream of girlfriends.
But when she strikes up an unusual friendship with her desk share buddy, she finds a confidante and a new potential love interest. Problem is, they’ve never actually met…
With Christmas just around the corner, can Sadie put herself first for a change and find what she’s been looking for all along?
The brand new romantic comedy from top 10 bestseller Portia MacIntosh. Perfect for fans of Sophie Ranald, Mhairi McFarlane and Zara Stoneley.

Sadie was a cool, down to earth character, a typical single girl you could relate to. Independent but also with good family values that spent every Christmas with her family. She made me laugh. It was like she couldn’t make up her mind if she loved or hated her job, especially being at her boss, Damian’s beck and call 24/7. She went along with anything to keep the peace.
As much as Damian annoyed her. I liked Sadie and Damian’s easy working relationship. It was like he was a bit misunderstood and still discovering life out, with Sadie’s help. It was good when we got to dig deeper into him and his past as the story went on. He did rope Sadie into some interesting work assignments though.
Post it notes – this was where it started off and was my first favourite thing of the book. I loved the little post it notes going back and forward between Sadie and her desk buddy Adam. I was invested in this from the beginning and was really excited to see where it went. There is something personal and special with receiving a hand written note. Especially when you can see it building up into something romantic. Just like Sadie and Adam.
Then christmas happened and I kind of forgot about the notes and got lost in all things festive. It was written perfectly. Reading this book makes me want Christmas to hurry up. The delicious food and drinks (gingerbread latte) are making me wish the days by. Not to forget all the wonderful festive activities, the roaring fire, the wonderfully smelling scented candles, the Christmas market. The bucks fizz at breakfast – this is exactly what my partner and I do. Boiled eggs for breakfast – one of my favourite breakfast. Portia got this spot on, it’s like she read my Christmas mind and I absolutely loved it.
I do love a book when you think you know what is going to happen and it actually doesn’t. I was taken by surprise with this one and in a good way. So I won’t give anything away. The little romantic surprise elements were great.
Its a must read for anyone who loves romance and Christmas.
