My review
With a cover like this and a title with wishing in it, do you even wonder why I read this book on a cool wintery December morning? And this book is everything which is needed to bring the warmth. Sitting in my reading nook, in a comfy armchair with tea and toast, here goes my review. 

The story is simple, Kelsey is conned, finds herself pregnant decides to put the baby up for adoption. But Fates have a different idea, so she has an accident hours prior to delivery, delivers the baby in the firehouse, and residents of Wishing Bridge rush to make her life comfortable. A SOS call to her best friends bring them all to this beautiful town. 

I love the way the author Ruth Logan Herne, has described this town. There is so much love and generosity abounding in the hearts of people. Taking a stranger into their homes and showering her with love is so beautifully depicted in her words. 

Reading this book a few days before Christmas is the right way to read Ruth’s words. There is something magical about her writing, something which made me want to go to Wishing Bridge and experience the holy atmosphere. 

It is not the tree and gifts which is true Christmas, but the empathy, the willingness to help a fellow human being which is the true Christmas spirit, and that is precisely what Ruth has shown in this book. 

I loved the friendship between the 3 girls, Kelsey, Thea and Jazz. A friendship born out of the rigors of a negligent childhood is forged in fire and survives all hardships. The three girls love and support each other throughout the story. And that is a beautiful sight to see. Ruth’s words make every scene come alive. 

The secret of Kelsey’s connection to Wishing Bridge adds another layer to this delicious women’s fiction. Then Ruth decided that we need a hunk to add romance to the flavor. And lo and behold, we have — the absolutely gorgeous cop, with a beautiful, courageous heart, Hale Jackson. Is there anything else which this book needs?? 

Ruth has added so many emotions to this book, all of which cover the heart and reache deep into the soul where distrust and hurt reside. Healing the soul piece by piece is what this book does. Reading this book, I was taken to a place so far away from real life, that I longed to have a home in Wishing Bridge. 

There may have been some niggles in the book, but in the hope and laughter which the words bring, those niggles are forgotten and the heart is just left remembering the beauty. 

On this holy and beautiful month of Christmas, I thank Ms Ruth for giving us such a book. She is like Santa bringing joy and hope where there seemed none, bringing light where darkness abounded, and bringing courage where fear resided. 

Some books are truly magical and bring a smile to the face. And this to me is one of them… 

I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher, Waterfall Press and this is my honest and unbiased opinion. 

My rating : 5 stars

Book blurb 

Kelsey is on her way to a life do-over. Abandoned by her drug-addict mother as a teen, she landed in a foster-care group home where she met her best friends, Jazz and Theadora. The trio stuck together like sisters and vowed to make their lives mean something. Now Kelsey’s pushing thirty, pregnant and alone after loving the wrong man, she’s on her way to making another life-changing decision when a wicked blizzard strands her outside the sleepy town of Wishing Bridge.

After being rescued from a snowbank by handsome cop, she’s embraced by the welcoming village. Fortunately, her frantic SOS brings her besties rushing to help sort things out. They soon find that Wishing Bridge has as many secrets as Kelsey does—and she’s connected to it in ways she couldn’t have imagined.
