"This story from Robin Alexander is charming, funny, and romantic. Even though it is a short story, or novella, it is a perfect example of a 'pick-me-up' tale that is sure to bring a smile to your face. The characters are well crafted with dialogue that allows you to hear their voices loud and clear. There are several laugh-out-loud lines and scenes. Even with the magic that is part of the storyline, everything felt real and true to life.
Robin is a master at keeping the story moving along at just the right pace and getting the reader to care about her all her characters, from the supporting cast to the leads.
I highly recommend this story for the smiles it brings, for the authenticity of the dialogue, and for meeting the perfect definition of a romance. Did I say perfect more than once? Yeah, it's that good.."
