The Wishing Season

The Wishing Season
A Chapel Springs Romance
Denise Hunter
PJ McKinley, just out of culinary school, enters a contest to win a house. She intends to use the house for her new restaurant. She'll use the extra rooms upstairs for a bed and breakfast. But at the presentation she learns of her competition, Cole. Cole wants to provide a home for children who have aged out of the foster care system. The restaurant will bring jobs and money to the small town. The children's home is s worthy cause that already has sponsors. The elderly lady who owns the home can't choose between the two and gives them each half of the house for one year. They must both learn to work together for one year, yet one of them will lose at the end.

I really enjoy this author's writing style. It's straight romance, but not overly sweet and syrupy. She puts a strong sense of family into her novels. The two main characters, while flawed, were written to capture the heart of the reader. Another aspect of this author's writing is how seamlessly and beautifully she weaves in faith without coming across too strong. She's a favorite author of mine and this book didn't change that. Looking forward to her next book.

I received this book free of charge from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
