Wishing on Willows - review

"A three-year-old son, a struggling cafe, and fading memories are all Robin Price has left of her late husband.  As the proud owner of Willow Tree Cafe in small town Peaks, Iowa, she pours her heart into every muffin she bakes and espresso she pulls, thankful for the sense of purpose and community the work provides.
So when developer Ian McKay shows up in Peaks with plans to build condos where her cafe and a vital town ministry are located, she isn't about to let go without a fight.
As stubborn as he is handsome, Ian won't give up easily.  His family's business depends on his success in Peaks.  But as Ian pushes to seal the deal, he wonders if he has met his match.  Robin's gracious spirit threatens to undo his resolve, especially when he discovers the beautiful widow harbors a grief that resonates with his own.
With polarized opinions forming all over town, business becomes unavoidably personal, and Robin and Ian must decide whether to cling to the familiar or surrender their plans to the God of second chances." (taken from the back cover of the book.)

Katie Ganshert, author of 'Wishing on Willows' weaves a beautiful story of loss, love and sense of purpose through Robin and Ian's individual stories.  Imagine yourself in Robin's shoes and along comes Ian via a family business wanting to take your livelihood away.  Do you fight to keep everything you have?  Do you give up and move on? or Do you compromise?  A very enjoyable read that I highly recommend to all.
