:

She daydreams of whipping up sauces and souffl s in her own restaurant. His heart is set on helping foster children. Both dreams are at stake. So are their hearts.

With grand plans to open her own bed & breakfast in Chapel Springs, PJ McKinley can't afford the most crucial part: the brick and mortar. But when the owner of a local historic home announces a contest and promises her property to the worthiest candidate, PJ makes a fervent wish and tosses her name into the hat.

Cole Evans is cool, confident, and successful, but he'll never forget his roots. He's thankful for how far he's come and knows his life could have turned out drastically different. If he can win the stately old mansion, he'll turn it into a home for children aging out of the foster system.

When the eccentric house owner narrows the entries down to only two applicants, she extends the contest, giving PJ and Cole one year to prove which one of them can make the best use of her beloved home. As the pair competes in close proximity, something deeper than rivalry sparks between PJ and Cole. And in this battle, they're likely to lose their hearts.

I absolutely loved this novel. The story pulls you in from the very start and you're always wondering what's coming up in the next pages. The plot was intriguing and fun, and the twists kept the book moving. If you like romance novels, this is a must!

Sweet
3 stars By Hannah, Apr 24 2015
I was a little disappointed by this book, though it was likely only because I'd gotten a whole different idea in my head of what it would be about from the blurb than the author likely intended. The book itself was good and the story sweet. It was a lot more serious than I'd expected, though it's difficult to say why without giving away the story. I did like the way the two main characters were developed. Their emotions and the decisions they made were really easy to relate to, given what they'd been through. A nice book, but probably not one I'd read again.

Excellent
5 stars By Iola, Dec 11 2014
PJ McKinley wants to prove to her family that she is capable of making good choices, despite her past history of less-good choices, especially those concerning men. The Wishing House is her opportunity: she wants to turn the property into an exclusive BB with a classy restaurant attached. Her competition is Cole Evans, who wants to open the house up to teens who've aged out of the foster care system and need somewhere safe to live while they complete high school.

Mrs Simmons can't decide which is the better plan, so comes up with a compromise: PJ will have the ground floor to open her restaurant, and Cole will have upstairs for his teens, and each of them have a year to prove they should be gifted the house. A potentially awkward situation made even more awkward by the way PJ and Cole met-when she knocked him unconscious-and by their mutual attraction. 

The Wishing Season does an excellent job of combining a small-town romance with the spiritual theme about the lies we tell ourselves, without getting preachy.
Basically, The Wishing Season has it all: lovable characters, a compelling plot, secrets and plenty of tension between PJ and Cole, the rivals who find themselves in the middle of something bigger. 

The Wishing Season is the third in the Chapel Springs Romance series. Recommended.
