I have a favorite author duo: It’s Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. I usually one-click their books without reading the blurb, because it’s a safe bet for me. So I was quite happy to hear, that they had a new book coming up (release date Oct. 20th). After finishing my current read at that time, I started reading “Happily Letter After” at the beginning of November.
Before you’ll get my review, here’s the blurb (Link to Goodreads):
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 showing up on their doorstep.
As I said before, Vi’s and Penelope’s book usually never disappoint. As was the case with “Happily Letter After”. This book also gets a 4 star rating from me. Sadie’s and Sebastian’s story is just so sweet. There are a few funny coincidences and interesting twists here and there. All in all a very entertaining story that goes straight to the heart.
I can definitely recommend this book if you want to have a relaxed read and just have a good time. I’m looking forward to many more books from my favorite duo. I might pick up their Christmas themed book called “The Christmas Pact”. I’m not quite sure, if I’m already in the right mood for that. We’ll see…
