Ian Quinn is full of responsibility and a love that he misses terribly. A change of fate has him running home to help. He put his wish in the Magic Box hoping it will come true and then waits for it to happen.
Aubrey enjoys her job and looks for the magical in every day surroundings. Mr. O’Grady, an owner of the bed and breakfast shows her his magic box. Though reluctant she puts her wish in the box. When Ian Quinn shows up, she is surprised and furious to think he could be the answer. She will fight with everything in her, but what will she be fighting for?
Magical things are important to me. Ms. Nutt weaves a story that is full of dreams coming true. Any story that involves fairies is close to my heart.
I could not get enough!
Here's the reviews for the other four wonderful stories in the Anthology!

Iris loves to help out friends. However, when her friend Anna brings her a painting some tries to steal it. In the process of figuring who wants the painting Jonathon loses his heart to Iris.

Sophia loves taking long walks and does so when her mom naps. She never expected to be approached by a handsome stranger. Scott seems nice, but she does not get her hopes up. Scott hopes he can get Sophia to see how he feels.
Ms. Lattimer is a fabulous writer who impresses me with each new story that I read. The characters are true and have a lot of difficult things to get through yet all that is needed is a little encouragement.
