Gia thrives on taking risks. After having her heart broken back home in India, she moved to London alone to chase her dreams.
Ben always plays things safe. He works the same job in the same restaurant, night after night.
But tonight, is going to be different. Because fate will mean one of Ben’s deliveries goes to Gia’s apartment and in return a note from her will make its way back to him at the restaurant. Ben and Gia have never met. But with each new delivery, Ben slips in a note of his own and waits patiently for her reply.
One by one, these notes transform their lives in unexpected ways and an unlikely and truly unique love story begins.
