Soft-hearted Reese Ahearn is single for Valentine's Day. Again. But that's not going to stop her from spreading the holiday's sentiment on the streets of Melbourne with short, sweet, anonymous love letters, left for strangers to find.

Romantic, refreshing and perfect. Though it's a Valentine's Day story, it's really a good one to read during any season, especially if you need a little cheering up.
On this day of hearts, Reese doesn't have a special someone to spend it with. Rather than mope, she decides to spread a little cheer and joy by sending anonymous letters to people who need it. Little did she know that she would receive a reply...
The story is written well, and the author manages to captivate and intrigue, despite there being not much dialogue. The letter that Reese wrote is wonderful, upbeat and giving confirmation to the receiver of the letter that he/she is a special, one of a kind, limited edition person (despite the lack of a special someone that day), something people who are alone most need to hear on that day. And the reply is great as well. Ms. Ackers is a master wordsmith, and we can see that in the content of these letters.
And the cover is just...perfect! I love it!
Though the story was short, I thought it was the right length for this story, ending on a note of possibilities and hope. One of the best short stories I've read! Highly recommended.
