Book Review: Wishing On Willows
Robin Price is clinging to her past in the form of a struggling cafe when Ian McKay shows up in Peaks, representing change. Both Robin and Ian, as well as the supporting characters, are pulled into a heated journey as they take their stands and make their decision. Robin's cafe was built on memories of her late husband and Ian needs the business deal to keep his family's company in the black. As their paths continue to cross, shadows of similarity of their situations begin to overshadow their differences. There's no easy solution with the town picking sides in the development battle, and deadlines looming.
Katie Ganshert does a great job of putting you in the middle of the characters emotions to the point where you feel their discomfort, frustration, or joy. Wishing on Willows was a fun read - if you need a chick flick to take on vacation with you (or to use as an accomplice to avoid cleaning, children, or work) this book would be a good pick.
