Summary

Robin Alexander cooks up another tale using her favorite recipe - love, family, and a healthy dose of humor.

Dana Castilaw grew up tossing coins in a well, hoping her wishes would come true, but the candy fountain, puppy, and love never seemed to manifest. At 18, she left her hometown of Barbier Point, Louisiana, longing to be free of her father's chokehold on her life and with a heart full of dreams she hoped would come true. Years later, she is forced to return home with at least one granted wish - her daughter, Sydney.

Alex Soileau stood at Dana's side for years tossing her coins into the well, making the same wish each time, a secret plea that she refused to reveal even to her best friend. Time and maturity insisted that she give up on her one fervent desire, but her heart never would.

Reunited as adults, both women realize that maybe there was magic in the well after all.

Awesome

One of my favourites of Robin Alexander, so glad Audible are finally rolling out her earlier books... more please... and quicker! Not overly keen on this particular narrator but ( slight spoiler if you haven't read the book) her drunk Alex had me laughing out loud so kudos for that 👍😁 did I say I wanted more of Robin's books released on Audible? I did, didn't I? I'll say it again.... More please!! 🙏🤞😄

Entertaining Story!

Robin Alexander knows how to write a charming story with likable main characters as well as an odd, lovable supporting cast. For me there were laugh-out-loud moments in the book. Lori Prince is, as ever, superb as narrator. Definitely worth the credit,

HILARIOUS!!!!!

MawMaw stole every scene!!! The dialogue as written is hilarious, and Lori Prince's performance had me bent over in stitches -- AT WORK!!!!! I have deep roots in and around New Iberia, LA, and I never felt insulted or that the accents were over-the-top. A delightful story with distinct, memorable characters and voices. Alexander did a marvelous job keeping the story realistic. Age is a factor!!! lol

Wickedly Charming!

You just can't go wrong with a Robin Alexander novel... Especially with Lori Prince as her narrator. Robin Alexanders sense of humor on paper is unmatched but extremely complimented by Lori Prince's spot on delivery of the lines!

This combo is my go-to when I need a chuckle and or cheering up!

Wishes can come true.

You can’t help but laugh out loud when listening to one of Robin’s stories. Alex has been pining for Dana since childhood. Dana is trying to rebuild her life and relationship with her father. You can always find outrageous family members in Robin’s stories and they really add to the wonderful story. Lori Prince is an excellent choice to narrate. She has some unique voices that are so perfect for the characters. This is a wonderful friends to forever story.

Lovely and funny

This was such a cute story filled with humor. Im glad that although Alex and Dana were the focus the author wrote in other story lines. Sydney is my favorite, wise young thing.

From Leann in WI

Thank you Robin and Lori. I loved this audiobook so very much! So many funny parts. I laughed so hard at the garden scene, where something crawled up Dana’s shorts that I had tears in my eyes! I cannot recommend this audiobook enough. Enjoy!
