      When the mayor of small town Peaks, Iowa, sees the potential of increased tax revenue with the pending surge of employees at a new company being built nearby, Robin Price finds herself in the battle of a lifetime. Part of the mayor's plan is to build modern condominiums in the same spot where Robin's beloved cafe and a thriving ministry are housed. When handsome Ian McKay shows up from the development firm using his charm to convince the town's people that the new condos will be good for the town's growth as the mayor suspects, Robin prepares to fight for the future of her cafe. As Ian turns his charm on Robin hoping to convince her to sell her cafe, his feelings and attraction for her betray him placing him in a predicament- he can choose to save his family's company by moving forward with the development plans in Peaks or he can follow his heart and pursue a romance with Robin. As their business conversations turn personal, Robin and Ian must wade through tensions surrounding the condo development, past grief, present fears and hesitation about the future if they desire a chance at new love.

      Wishing on Willows continues the next chapter in the lives of the characters from Wildflowers from Winter. Tensions between Robin and Ian for her cafe property are palpable and leap from the page as Ganshert draws the reader in such a way that she feels a part of the turmoil. While the romance element is slow to develop, the author uses the details that unfold from Ian and Robin's pasts to link their hearts resulting in a satisfying ending for both the cafe and Robin and Ian on a personal level.

      Plot: I really enjoyed the plot. It was real and simple, but it was intriguing and entertaining at the same time. There wasn't too much happening, but enough to stay engaged with the story.

      Characters: I really enjoyed the character development in this story. It really was essential to the story. Watching the characters grow and change as the story develops and learning things about the characters and how they fit together was in itself romantic and beautiful.

      Themes: The main theme in this book would be moving forward. Robin is stuck between who she was with her husband and the dreams they shared and moving ahead with her life and taking the next steps.

      Emotion: The emotion was great at times and only okay at others. It was easy to identify with the characters, but not always in a deep intimate way.

      Overall: I really enjoyed this book and the characters. As I said, it was just a simple story, but it was very well written and entertaining.

      This is the second book that I think is in a series but what series I do not know. I love this book as much as the first one. It more about Cafe and Cafe Owner. Sorry I can not remember her name or her son at the moment. It been a while since I read it. Though it was this year and only a couple of months ago. I will let you decide for yourself if you download the e-book or buy the paperback.

      Katie Ganshert has done it again! Wishing on Willows picks up where Wildflowers from Winter leaves off and touches on grief, recovery, getting "over" oneself, and moving on. This is a heart-wrenching and heart-warming novel! Katie's writing is smooth and creative, very descriptive and engaging. Her characters are real and so are the feelings she provokes in her readers. You don't want to miss out on these two books!

      About the book: In Wildflowers from Winter, the main character Bethany's grief-stricken friend, Robin, has lost her husband and delivered their first child after his death. With much encouragement from Bethany, Robin builds a café in memory of her lost husband. Wishing on Willows begins with the potential demolition of her café, Willow Tree, and Robin's fight to keep it (and the memory of her husband) alive for their now three year old son. Robin clearly can't move forward for hanging on to the past.

      Ian, a big-city developer, offers to buy her café. His company wants to build a condominium complex where her café is situated in anticipation of a growth spurt in the community once a manufacturing plant opens nearby. The town, which has suffered hard from the economic downturn, needs this condo complex. The mayor is pushing for it. But Robin can't let them tear down her café and the ministry she helps serve through it. It seems like the entire town is for Ian and is against Robin. Just like Robin, Ian has a past that he can't let go of either and he's walking in the shadow of his father's footsteps although he'd rather be pursuing his own dreams.

      It doesn't help that the two of them are attracted to each other. When they put their differences aside, they manage to get along. But those moments are fleeting. Robin just can't get past the fact that Ian wants to tear down what she built to keep her husband's memory alive--all for the sake of a fancy building and to earn another dollar. Things are complicated by the fact that it seems like everyone in the town and Robin's family has moved on. Robin begs God to save her café and her heart doesn't budge, refusing to believe that there is another way other than her way. She learns that God's way is mysterious and always best!
