The Wishing Season

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!
