Wishing on Willows

Did I tell you guys that I am taking part in a book launch? I have never really participated in anything like this before and I am very excited to be part of it.  The book I am helping launch is called Wishing on Willows by Kate Ganshert.  She is also the author of Wildflowers from Winter.  Both books are Christian fiction.  I had hoped to be further along in the book than I am but since I took up crochet I have been devoting a lot of my spare time to that. That is NO indication of how I feel about this book.  So far this book has been very captivating.  Here is a bit about the book...
"A three-year old son, a struggling café, and fading memories are all Robin Price has left of her late husband. As the proud owner of Willow Tree Café 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 café 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."    ~Wishing on Willows
