Romance, Fiction, Contemporary
Spirited PJMcKinley has the touch when it comes to food. Her dream of opening her own restaurant is just one building short of reality. So when a Chapel Springs resident offers her beloved ancestral home to the applicant with the best plan for the house, PJ believes it’s a contest she was meant to win.
Contractor Cole Evans is confident, professional, and swoon-worthy—but this former foster kid knows his life could have turned out very differently. When Cole discovers the contest, he believes his home for foster kids in transition has found its saving grace. All he has to do is convince the owner that an out-of-towner with a not-for-profit enterprise is good for the community.
But when the eccentric philanthropist sees PJ and Cole’s proposals, she makes an unexpected decision: the pair will share the house for a year to show what their ideas are made of. Now, with Cole and the foster kids upstairs and PJ and the restaurant below, day-to-day life has turned into out-and-out competition—with some seriously flirtatious hallway encounters on the side. Turns out in this competition, it’s not just the house on the line, it’s their hearts.
Typically I don't get overly excited about a book by Denise Hunter. I know it will be a fairly easy low key read. The Wishing Season surprised me by having substance to it. I thoroughly enjoyed the read. PJ and Cole are engaging characters that kept me entertained. The storyline has true depth to it and was well worth the read. Just enough chemistry to keep me reading and enough heart to be engaging.
My thanks to Thomas Nelson for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my real and honest review.
