The Wishing Season
By Denise Hunter
She daydreams of whipping up sauces and soufflés in her own restaurant. His heart is set on helping foster children. Both dreams are at stake. So are their hearts.
With grand plans to open her own bed & breakfast in Chapel Springs, PJ McKinley can’t afford the most crucial part: the brick and mortar. But when the owner of a local historic home announces a contest and promises her property to the worthiest candidate, PJ makes a fervent wish and tosses her name into the hat.
Cole Evans is cool, confident, and successful, but he’ll never forget his roots. He’s thankful for how far he’s come and knows his life could have turned out drastically different. If he can win the stately old mansion, he’ll turn it into a home for children aging out of the foster system.
When the eccentric house owner narrows the entries down to only two applicants, she extends the contest, giving PJ and Cole one year to prove which one of them can make the best use of her beloved home. As the pair competes in close proximity, something deeper than rivalry sparks between PJ and Cole. And in this battle, they’re likely to lose their hearts.
MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
Who will win The Wishing Mansion contest, the confident and successful Cole, who will never forget his roots and wants to give former foster care kids 18 and over a home, or the restaurant hopeful PJ, who has dreamed of opening up and owning a Bed and Breakfast for years? Denise Hunter will keep you reading in this third book in The Chapel Hill series.
This has been such a good and heartwarming series, and I love this third addition to the series! The contest is an amazing event happening, and both PJ and Cole have their heart set on winning. As the battle starts, PJ on the bottom floor of this mansion with her Bed and Breakfast, and Cole on the top floor with this teens with no home, tensions fly! How can an arrangement like this actually work, and for a year at that?!? Ms. Hunter will have you on the edge of your seats as you involve yourself into this wonderful read! I love the tension, the competition, and the attraction between these two very determined young people! This is a book you don’t want to miss. If you haven’t read the first two books in this series, The Wishing Season is ok for a stand alone book. But if you have read the series so far, you will welcome the characters and friends from the first two books. I highly recommend this book for a good clean, and fun read!
