Blurb: Happily Letter After by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward
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.
Book Review: Happily Letter After by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward
It’s been a while since I last read a story by these two talented authors. I think it was what I definitely needed in order to blow some steam and relax from all the pressure from work. I don’t know about you, but life has been pretty hectic!
I really fell in love with Sadie’s character. She’s sweet and completely empathic about Birdie’s situation. The authors definitely made her the perfect stepmom! My favorite part was when she pretended to be the dog trainer and Sebastian (hot dad) made her go on her knees so Birdie’s great dane could go over her.
Sebastian was also an amazing character. He was everything a father should be: hardworking, loving and protective. I loved how he recurrently tried to learn how to braid Birdie’s hair despite not getting it right every single time.
All in all this is a very beautiful story about finding love again and giving yourself the chance to become a family.
