Dodging and weaving her mother’s attempts to get her married off and producing grandbabies as soon as possible, Maggie focuses on teaching and doing fun projects with her students - like sending a box of cards to anonymous soldiers for the holidays. She’s more than a little surprised when the receiving naval officer writes a proper thank-you letter.
The magic ensues when Maggie writes back. She sees her new pen pal as an innocent diversion - until he isn’t.
Lt. Commander F. Hawkins thinks he’s writing to a sweet little old woman. Little does he know that the woman sending him baked goods is going to capture his heart.
In a culture of online dating and hookups, Maggie and Hawkins find themselves transported through the old-fashioned act of letter-writing. His steadfast earnestness can’t help but appeal. Her charm and vivacity can’t fail to captivate.
They never stood a chance.

to be continued!!!!!!!
I loved the old-fashioned courting by writing letters. Was a great story until "to be continued." No proper ending. What!??
Light, heartwarming story w/ excellent narration
This book was a very enjoyable read. It’s relatively short, and I look forward to more (to be continued)! I also greatly enjoyed the bonus short story!

As always, Ms Adams' writing is wonderful.
Mariana Zapata wrote a story called "Dear Aaron", which is I love by the way, that has a similar premise where the leading heroine is a strong character and writes to someone in the military; penpal turns into friend and friend turns into romantic interest. Even though the premise is similar, the storylines are completely different in a very good way. The feel of each is very powerful and positive.
I hope Ms Adams has a follow up story for us on Maggie and Hawkins.
And having "Swap Meet" as a bonus was an incredible treat. I love it also.
