Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

In this competition, it’s not just the house on the line, it’s their hearts.

She has the touch when it comes to food, but PJ McKinley’s dream of opening her own restaurant is one building short of reality. So when a Chapel Springs resident offers her beloved ancestral home as prize to the applicant with the best plan for the house, PJ believes 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 a not-for-profit enterprise will be good for the community.

When the eccentric philanthropist weighs the proposals, she proposes an outlandish tie-breaker: PJ and Cole will share the house for a year to see which idea works best. Now, with Cole and the foster kids upstairs and PJ and the restaurant below, day-to-day life has turned into an out-and-out rivalry—with some seriously flirtatious hallway encounters on the side. But could their magnetic attraction cost them everything they’ve ever wanted?

    It was nice to see PJ's story after being introduced to her in the first two books of this series. The family dynamics between the four siblings and their parents, as well as Beckett and Daniel, is always a highlight for me in this series. The interactions between the characters is one of the strongest appeals in this book. I did find it a little strange that despite this being a Christian book, nothing was really said about an unmarried man and woman living in the same house. Maybe I'm making a bigger deal out of it than I should be it seemed strange to me. Overall, I liked the book and I think readers who like fairly clean romances that don't mind heavier issues will like this book.

    I did enjoy this novel. I was amazed that Hunter could come up with a plot that I had not seen before in a romance. Two people trying to win the same large house while living in it developing their dreams is a sure fire formula for a troubled romance. Both characters have issues that need to be dealt with. PJ and Cole need forgiveness and restoration. The gospel is clearly presented as their relationship progresses. Also, both have issues from the past, Cole with guilt from an automobile accident and PJ from making poor decisions in the past. It was great to see how those character traits are healed.

    This is a good romance and I recommend it.

    You meet PJ McKinley and Cole Evans on the opening pages of The Wishing Season, the latest book by Denise Hunter. PJ and Cole soon enter a year-long contest with each other to win ownership of a house in Chapel Springs.

    PJ and Cole each have a dream. PJ wants to open and run a successful restaurant. Cole dreams of opening a home to assist young people leaving foster care and looking to start a life on their own.

    Both PJ and Cole have trials that they each must work through on the pages of this novel. There are many moments of conflict with each other; however, moments of something deeper and more lasting seemed to be growing.

    This book definitely had me smiling once I reached the final pages!

    Please note: A fainting couch is essential for this read due to copious swoonworthy scenes scattered throughout the book. Be. Still. My. Heart. PJ and Cole made a huge impact on me. And their first meet? Hysterical. Especially PJ. Hunter has a brilliant talent for fleshing out the essence of a character in only a few pages. I felt like I knew PJ (and loved her) in a all of a nanosecond.

    Talk about opposites attract -- only Cole and PJ don't at first. Or pretend they don't. They come from different worlds, their lives riddled with diverse experiences but at the core they are both struggling with deep issues of self-worth and a determination to prove themselves. Talk about upping the angst because they both need to win this competition. I mean really need to win. My heart was all aflutter the whole read trying to figure out how that was even possible.

    This is the kind of book that will make you laugh out loud just as much as it will tug at your heartstrings. A wonderful blending of the stuff real life is made of. The McKinley family has become a fixture in my life much as Henderson's O'Malleys and Warren's Christiansens have. I like to think of them all as extended family and it's such a treat to catch up with the rest of the clan. No worries if you haven't read the other books in A Chapel Springs Romance series, this one reads well as a standalone. Mind you, I predict that after reading The Wishing Season, you'll definitely want to hunt out the other three.

    What a fun book! PJ and Cole begin as competitors but quickly realize they can help each other out. It was a lot of fun to see how their relationship developed!

    I loved the mission that Cole was on to help kids who age out of foster care. His idea for post-foster care housing has actually led to some interesting conversations at home! (Don't you love when that happens?!)

    I've said repeatedly that I love series that follow a family through several books, and this is a perfect example why. The Wishing Season primarily focus on PJbut we also get to catch up with the rest of the McKinley family. One thing I thought was interesting was how much the rest of the family irritated me for treating PJ so poorly at times (and I LOVED them in the other books!). I guess that just goes to show what a great job the author did of helping me feel empathy for PJ!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this visit to Chapel Springs and happily recommend this book (and the entire series!) to readers who love sweet, contemporary romances! [5 stars]

    I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my fair and honest review.
