Review for The Wishing Tree by Jen Gilroy

The Wishing Tree in Irish Falls

Published October 9th 2019 by Soul Mate Publishing

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.

My Thoughts…

This small-town story is perfect.   The amazing characters, the wonderful setting, and the beautiful families all made me fall into The Wishing Tree and never want to leave.    The characters were not perfect, they had their problems but they also had incredible families/friends that support them when it was needed.   

Seth is finding an entirely different life than what he left behind.   Irish Falls is his second chance at life.   While he doesn’t expect to like or stay in Irish Falls, he finds a family he didn’t know that he was missing.   Seth also finds Annie.  Annie opens his eyes to all a small town can offer and she also opens his heart to the love he didn’t know he was looking for. 

Jen Gilroy wrote a wonderful book.  The family, friends, forgiveness, and love are all things that I love about her books.  I would certainly recommend this book.
