Review: The Wishing Season by Denise Hunter


About the book:
Living side-by-side, a fledgling chef and a big-hearted contractor find a delicious attraction.

Trouble is, their chemistry could spoil their dreams.

Spirited PJ McKinley 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.

My thoughts:


The Wishing Season is the third book in the Chapel Springs series -- a series I have been loving! I had high expectations for the story, since the last book (Dancing With Fireflies) was an all-time favorite read of mine...and, while it didn't eclipse that book, I did still love The Wishing Season!

The story was so good! I loved how P.J. and Cole first met (let's just say it was a "smashing" scene) and the way they had to share the house on a trial basis for their business dreams. I also loved the characters and how jealous and protective Cole was towards P.J.

All in all, a fantastic read! I can't wait to read Married 'Til Monday, the next Chapel Springs book. I recommend this series if you enjoy contemporary romance.

  1. This one was second only to Barefoot Summer for me! Definitely an excellent read. Hoping "Monday" is just as good, which I am sure it will be. :)
