****BLURB****

 
From New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes a love story about taking chances and the surprises that come with them.
 
My love story all started with a letter.
 
Only it wasn’t from the man I’d eventually fall in love with. It was from his daughter. A sweet little girl named Birdie Maxwell who’d written to the magazine that I worked for.
 
You see, once a year my employer fulfilled a few wishes for readers. Only that column didn’t start up again for months.
 
So I fulfilled some of her wishes myself. It was harmless…so I thought. Until one day I took things too far.
 
While anonymously granting yet another of Birdie’s wishes, I got a look at her father. Her devastatingly handsome, single dad father.
 
I should have stopped playing fairy godmother then. I should have left well enough alone. But I just couldn’t help myself. I had a connection to this girl. One that had me acting irrationally.
 
Like when I showed up on their doorstep.

**** My Review ****

There is a reason why Vi Keeland is one of the most popular authors in recent times. Combine that with the art of the master storyteller Penelope Ward, and it is a fact that readers will be knocked off their knees.  No wonder that the combination of their gifts one more time resulted into a real page-turner of the first order.

The young journalist, Sadie is a skilled and successful columnist, who besides being a real dating exert, is also in charge of the Christmas Wishes section. From the very beginning it is obvious that she is ambitious, determined and responsible young lady. But what will happen when an unexpected ‘Dear Santa….’ letter arrives in the middle of the summer? A letter that knocked her down with a feather and cause a real storm of emotions. She fails to resist the urge and gets involved over and over, against her better judgment…but what can she do when the wishes of the little girl seem greater than her common sense, when that strong connection she feels exceeds any logical explanation and the feelings are simply unbearable. It all started with one letter…that lead to another…and another… letters and actions, leading her to the front door of Sebastian Maxwell. The single dad who is trying to gather the pieces of what was left after his wife’s death and create a safe place for his little girl, Birdie. And out of the blue appears the attractive Sadie and one little lie leads to another…and another… until the difference between truth and imagination is blurred. And will her kindhearted and passionate heart break down the walls around Sebastian’s heart? Will their attraction lead to something deeper and meaningful? What will happen when fate takes hold of things?

This single dad romance has everything to make readers delighted…achingly tender, yet amazingly spicy, and the emotional tangle is simply heart-wrenching and heart-warming at the same time. The authors did amazing job relaxing the readers with deliciousness and scorching chemistry that drips from the pages, while exploring topics which are not easy to read such as: grief, guilt, terminal illness, single parenting…so many delicate nits so perfectly intertwined that force you to read faster, yet you find yourself desiring to save something so you can spend more time with this endearing family. The characters are so skillfully developed that will own your heart from the first moment and the feelings that overwhelm you will make you feel like a dog with two tails, when you read the epilogue.

This book simply hit all the marks… Maybe a bit far-fetched, but who cares? I enjoyed every single word, I laughed, I sighed, I cried, I swooned…. And that means that I read a very special book that will remain in my thoughts long after I have devoured the final words… It definitely earned a permanent spot on my book shelf. Another extraordinary read from this amazing duo that no reader should miss.
