Sometimes happily ever after is only a wish away . . .
There’s a wishing tree in Irish Falls. The bits of paper tied to its gnarled branches hold the hopes and dreams of everyone in town . . . except Annie Quinn.
Single mom Annie has spent years rebuilding her life and trying not to have regrets. After giving up her dream of music stardom, she returned to her Adirondack hometown—and convinced herself she’s content with a simpler life.
The last thing she needs is a man to remind her of the heartbreak she left behind.
A divorced dad, Seth Taggart used to be a successful LA songwriter. But now his reputation is in tatters, he’s burnt-out, and estranged from his adult son. Inheriting a small-town radio station just might be the do-over he needs.
Although he always planned to go back to LA, when working with Annie turns into sharing music and more, Seth realizes second chances—and home—are where he least expects.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
Jen Gilroy’s talent shines bright with this amazing story! I was instantly transported to the heart of the story and fell in love with each of the characters, the setting and the message behind the story. Being able to feel each emotion that the characters had was amazing!
I absolutely loved Seth’s character. I loved the way he was chiseled and loved the way he fit into the story. Watching him interact with Annie was a beautiful experience. And, seeing Annie with her daughter Hannah, it reminded me of a time when I was a single mom. Seth, Annie and all of the Irish Falls community truly gripped me and made me a part of their lives!
Gilroy has a beautiful talent that should not be missed by anyone! She has a knack for making you feel as if the story was written just for you. Each page turn brings you something new within the story. Playing out like a movie on the big screen, this story of second chances, finding a true love in an unexpected time and place, and the value of what family truly means, this story will steal your heart instantly. I highly recommend this book with two thumbs up, hats off, and most definitely 4.5 stars!
