ARC Wishing on Willows - Katie Ganshert

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.

First thoughts after...
I would love a follow up to this book!  

How Distracted did I get??
Wishing on Willows is a heart warming book this is addictive in story and characters.  Robin is a widow afraid of moving on even 4 years after her husband passed.  She is strong, sweet and caring of all around her.  A great leading lady.  Ian is mysterious, handsome and charming.  Wishing on willows is a sweet charming story that I would recommend to Christian Women's Fiction Readers with a touch of romance.  I gobbled it up.  I did make Super Bowl snacks but with all the craziness of the weekend which was A LOT I was able to finish in 3 days!

I give Wishing on Willows.......
