My Book Review Of Wishing On Willows By Kate Ganshert

Synopsis:

Does a second chance at life and love always involve surrender?

A three-year old son, a struggling café, and fading memories are all Robin Price has left of her late husband. As the proud owner of Willow Tree Café in small town Peaks, Iowa,  she pours her heart into every muffin she bakes and espresso she pulls, thankful for the sense of purpose and community the work provides.
                                     
So when developer Ian McKay shows up in Peaks with plans to build condos where her café and a vital town ministry are located, she isn’t about to let go without a fight.

As stubborn as he is handsome, Ian won’t give up easily. His family’s business depends on his success in Peaks. But as Ian pushes to seal the deal, he wonders if he has met his match. Robin’s gracious spirit threatens to undo his resolve, especially when he discovers the beautiful widow harbors a grief that resonates with his own.

With polarized opinions forming all over town, business becomes

unavoidably personal and Robin and Ian must decide whether to cling to the familiar or surrender their plans to the God of Second Chances.

My Take On This Book:

Robin Price deals with trying to move on with her life, while still holding onto the memory of her late husband, for not only herself but also her three-year old son. When a stranger comes to town and threatens her café, her safe haven in a world of chaos, she fights to save it.

She also finds herself attracted to the tall dark handsome stranger, which she tries to fight these feelings. Ian McKay comes to Peaks, Iowa to save his family’s business. But in order to save the family business it would mean he would have to tear down the buildings along the riverfront to build condos, and one of those buildings just happens to be Robin’s cozy little café.

This book will keep you reading until you are done, it is an exciting read about love, faith and hope in a little town where a stranger comes in and rocks Robin and Ian’s world in a few different ways. This is a wonderful story, of loss, faith, hope and love, awesome book.

I received a free copy of this book for review from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group, for my honest unbiased opinion.
