Wishing on Willows review

Life can be pretty tricky. Robin Price runs Willow Tree Café in small town Peaks Iowa. Her business may not be terribly profitable, given her habit of giving her few clients free coffee, but she loves what she does. The idea of the coffee shop was one Robin and her late husband Micah had entertained before his passing. Since she opened it, the store has given Robin a purpose. Enter Ian McKay, of McKay Development and Construction. The mayor of Peaks wants to build condos where Robin’s coffee shop stands. Robin’s neighboring business owners quickly agree to sell, leaving only Robin and a local ministry. God provides a second chance to both Robin and Ian in love and life when they surrender to him. Pretty hard to do though. Robin is inspired by both her son (she found out she was pregnant after her husband’s accident) and her father (also widowed).

I was surprised by this book. I read Wildflowers From Winter, Katie Gansherts first novel and did not care for it. I really think she made progress with her second novel. I could identify better with Robin than I could with Bethany. I am also the mother of a four-year-old boy who loves John Deere. While I’ve never been to a River Bandits game, I have been to a LumberKings game. So I know the area where the story is set.

I received an advance copy of this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for writing a review. I was under no obligation to write a favorable review.
