The Post-it Note Affair
a Romance Novelette of Love Lost and Found
by Justine Avery
Pub Date 19 Sep 2015
Emily wants what every woman does: to have it all. Is that too much to ask?
Emily really can't complain. She's married to a wonderful man, her high school sweetheart, who still dotes on her as he did when he first laid eyes on her. They have a beautiful home together, and they each enjoy successful careers. On the outside looking in, Emily has what any woman would be perfectly happy with.
But it's just not enough. Emily can't help wishing for just a bit more—for that special spark, for that thrill of something new and surprising, for the shivery tingles running down her spine. For real passion—for true romance.
She never expects to find it during the workday and definitely not in the form of a sticky note.
Just one square slip of paper with a few handwritten words, tucked mysteriously into the contents of her purse and dropped right into her small world, marks the first of a slew of sexy surprises Emily couldn't have anticipated no matter how hard she wished for them. She's desperately sought after every one of the special moments in store for her, and there's no question that she deserves them.
Even as Emily eagerly anticipates and thoroughly savors all of the excitement and mystery of what may come, she just can't guess the roller coaster of emotions she's soon to experience—or just how much it will change her.
And she may never guess just who—is leading her on the romantic adventure of her dreams.
Just when she feels she's lost the life and love she most wants to have, she finds them—in the last place she'd ever think to look.
"A sweetly-written page-turner ... highly recommended." –Edward Trayer, The Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards
"A really sweet short story. A lot of punch behind a powerful moral in such a short number of pages. Now that's really good writing. To be able to draw in the reader and make them root for or stress about a character's decisions in such a short space is a positive reflection on an author's skill ... [I] loved how Avery left the admirer so artfully ambiguous, allowing for the story to potentially take multiple directions right up until the end. I know which outcome I was rooting for and my wish came true." –Readers' Favorite
"Well written with a surprisingly well developed female lead. I would happily read another of this author's short books. The perfect beach read." –judges panel, The Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards
