Wishing on Willows my Katie Ganshert



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

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.

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.



Robin Price didn’t care of Ian McKay or his business in the small town of Peaks. He wanted to uproot the town and especially her small café, and she would never give it up. And Ian needed this job to prove himself to his dad, so he wasn’t about to give up. But as the story unfolds, and the situation begin to heat up in the town over Ian’s business, and as Ian and Robin and Ian spent more time together, things begin to change. But it was all still so difficult.


I liked this story, the characters were realistic and believable and played their part well as the story unfolds. Ian and Robin were equally stubborn and it was fun watching the interaction between the two. The town was clearly in need of the changes Ian’s company wanted to do, and the tension between everyone kept me reading to the end, because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. If you are in for a good, relaxing, romance, this would be a good book for you. And don’t forget the first book in this series, Wildflowers from Winter.
