Summary

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.

Good storyline

The Narrators are excellent and they tell the story beautifully. Not alot of banter or sassyness from the female main character but it's all in line with the story. Fate, faith and overcoming lifes tragedies always makes for a good story.

A little bit different

As usual this narrator combo works incredibly well at bringing this story to life. This story was quite unexpectedly different... but in a really good way. Definitely worth a listen!

Same premise as Written With You Duet

I was disappointed because this book lacked originality. It's the same premise as Written With You...where the child plays a significant roll in bringing two people back together. Female narrator is also the same. I'm used to SY as a narrator and can adapt to his voice inflections for different characters, but the entire time I listened to this book, I couldn't get "The Day He Came Back" characters out of my head. Weldon's voice was present, as was Raven's, as was Mr. M's...I think different narrators could have lent some originality to this title. I had greater expectations for this book. Did not finish. Made it 3 hours in and tossed it back. Nothing held my attention.

Chop sticks!

I don’t know if I’ve ever read a book with the same story line but I very much enjoyed this one! It was unique to me and very sweet! I would suggest!

A FEEL-GOOD, FUN, LIGHT & DELICIOUS SLOW-BURN

Dear Santa, thank you for feeling moved enough to fulfill a cute little girl’s touching wishes to be shown a sign that her late Mom is watching over her from Heaven, thank you for bringing a special person into her and her loving Dad’s life and thank you for showing their heart, their humor and their love. Okay, okay, I know it wasn’t actually you Santa, it was Columnist Sadie who felt drawn to a little girl’s letter to you, interfered, granted wishes and went out of her way to help. I know she stepped well over the line to make it happen for Birdie and that she eventually came clean to Birdie’s drool-worthy but angry Dad. I know it was a slow-burn because Sebastian (aka drool-worthy Dad) didn’t feel ready to move on (even though it’d been four years since his wife died) but there was just something about Sadie that pulled him in and their chemistry smouldered and sparked until he was eventually ready. Which made a delicious, beautiful, rewarding and heartwarming listen because Birdie and Sebastian’s lives were enriched by Sadie’s love.. and vice versa. And the clicking into place of the twist by Fate, Destiny or Amanda’s preplanned blessing was perfect. So Santa, this year can I please have more books expertly written by Vi and Penelope.. the mighty masterful dynamic duo. And would I be asking for too much if they could also be narrated by the much loved and very talented five star narrators Andi and Sebastian who always bring their characters, their emotions and their stumbling blocks to life. WORTH A CREDIT? Yes definitely.. a charming, humorous, very entertaining and well-paced dual POV love story that has sweet.. and crazy.. and fun.. and touching.. and sexy.. and heartwarming scenes. And has great character growth too as an overstretched, protective, loving single Dad finally grabs his second-chance to love and HEA endings.

Disappointed

Love these authors, but this book felt like they needed to meet a deadline. If that’s the case, than good job on hitting it, but unfortunately I don’t think it’s a winner. I won’t say anything bad, because I love these authors and performers so judge for yourself. You had to skip most of the book.

What a lovely read

It’s Hallmark Christmas story with some VERY steamy parts. Well, I guess there’s no quaint New England town as it’s set in NYC and there’s no power hungry executive, but there is a character who needs his heart melted and there’s a dog and child involved. So enough similarities none the less and likable characters, likable story line, tidy and pleasant ending. It’s no work of literary genius, but sometimes that’s not what one is looking for:-)

Too contrived

This story felt too contrived. The little girl was too cute. I just couldn’t get into it

A feel good story

I loved this story. It was a feel good, a bit angsty, love story. Quite a few twists and turns but oh! It was fun and really good. I would definitely recommend. I loved the narration by Andi Arndt and Sebastian York.

WOW JUST WOW

I absolutely loved this read/listen. Vi & Pen you ladies knocked it out the park with this one. The dog training was hilarious. The relationship with Birdie and Sadie so sweetly developed. Did not expect the ending but wow it was a great ending. Definitely worth the purchase and repeat listen!

Slow start but ... WOW 🤩 ❤️

When I first started listening to this book I was apprehensive about the storyline and if I could buy into it. Wow.... did I buy into it!!! The story unfolded beautifully and I truly fell in love with these characters and their love story. The narration was incredible -as it always is with these two. I will definitely revisit this book again! I’m kind of in love with the turn this story took in the end 🥰
