Publisher's Summary

An Amazon Charts bestseller. 

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.

Surprisingly Perfect

When I purchased this audiobook I wasn't sure what to expect. From the moment I started listening, I was impressed with the storyline, the comedic moments and the seriousness of the various subject material this book took on. The actors' performances were very engaging. This is one book I will listen to several times.
This book has everything!

Good

A typical romance. But the story was excellent.

Andi and Sebastian are perfect together. So worth the listen.

It funny how big the world is and yet still a small world.

Who thought being Santa’s Little Helper will find you what you are missing in your life.

Andi and Sebastian again are amazing together.

Get this book. So sweet you will need to brush your teeth after.

So worth it.

such a nice story

I listened to the preview and I really liked it so I bought the book I casted it on the backburner for an in-between read the book excelled in all I couldn't call what would come next and that's what made it so much better!

Utterly delightful and fun

Nothing like a really good book, that ticks off everything on ones list. It almost reads like true fiction and definitely a smudge of comprehensive literature thrown in. Writing and editing skills devote to this story are quite noteworthy. Story above the average with no filler, well rounded characters, twists and turns of a roller coaster ride to a neat yet unexpected landing. And the foreshadowing was exquisite. Narrators are genuine actors, with the pull of every word spoken you lean in to hear. It’s a grand journey. Will definitely read this book over and over. Only thing, the title needed work, ridiculous title.

This book is perfection 🤩

I absolutely loved this audiobook! It was incredibly moving, funny and sweet. I cried, I laughed, I swooned and felt all kinds of feels listening to this audiobook. Both narrators are so great, I always choose this pair together, they are amazing! The characters are fun, quirky, multi layered, profound and interesting. It was so exciting to listen to the story unfold while super intrigued and excited to know what happens next! One of my favourite reads in a while! 🤩🤩🤩

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.

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.

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:-)

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.

Cute, but a bit too much

This was an entertaining single parent/widower romance. I liked all the characters and it was very sweet, but I think all the coincidences together were a bit too much. Sadie's initial behavior (though well intentioned) was too stalkerish. I wasn't expecting to have to suspend disbelief quite so much with this book. Perhaps that was the point though, given the title and the big reveal/secret, but it just didn't work for me. The narration duo of Andi Arndt and Sebastian York is always enjoyable, but I would have liked it more if Sebastian had more chapters in the book. Sadie's behavior didn't seem to align with a 29 year old and I found Andi Arndt's performance well done, but also a bit too mature for the character. Overall, an enjoyable read/listen, but I didn't love it.

CW: death of parent (cancer), infertility/IVF, death of dog (off page, but discussed)

so sweet

Omg such a sweet story. The beginning of it is pretty much a slow burn and at first I was thinking I could totally have done with orthotics the entire beginning but one should never underestimate the storytelling of this dynamic duo. The very long beginning does end up tying into the story and it then begins to make sense. It all starts when a little girl writes a letter to Santa in June to ask for something special for her dad… her dad who happens to be a widow; and the woman who answered her call. What I did not like was that it was awhile before you even meet the father and daughter so once they do, it felt a bit rushed. I felt that the relationship between Sadie and the little girl, Birdie was stronger than that of Sadie and Sebastian. However, when they finally came together it became a really sweet and heartfelt book. The heat factor rates 3. Comedic value… 3 ½. Romance… 3. Heartstrings… 5.
