About this ebook

With her signature charm and sense of humor, bestselling author Helena Hunting creates a novel about love, family, and second chances in Make a Wish.

Ever have a defining life moment you wish you could do over? Harley Spark has one. The time she almost kissed the widowed father of the toddler she nannied for. It was so bad they moved across the state and she never saw them again.

Fast forward seven years and she’s totally over it. At least she thinks she is. Until Gavin Rhodes and his adorable now nine-year-old daughter, Peyton, reappear at a princess-themed birthday party hosted by Spark House, Harley’s family’s event hotel. Despite trying to avoid the awkwardness of the situation, she can’t help but notice how unbearably sexy he looks in a tutu. Add to that a spontaneous hives breakout, and it’s clear she’s not even remotely over the mortification of her egregious error all those years ago.

Except Gavin seems oblivious to her inner turmoil. So much so that he suggests they get together for lunch. For Peyton’s sake, of course. It’s the perfect opportunity to heal old wounds. Or it could just reopen them. This is one of those times Harley wishes she could see the future...

Make a Wish is Book 3 of Helena Hunting's Spark House series. While we get to revisit characters in past stories, it stands perfectly fine on its own if you haven't read the other books yet. As much as I enjoyed Gavin and Harley and characters, the story fell a bit flat and their romance seemed to miss some of the spark I was looking (and hoping) for. As for the mother-in-law, I kept waiting for Gavin to grow a pair. ARC received via NetGalley.

Make a Wish is a touching, sweet, and steamy second chance romance that will capture your heart. I love single parent romance stories and this slow-burn romance was a real treat. Harley worked for Gavin to help with his new born daughter, Peyton, after his wife died. Gavin and Peyton moved away for years but are now back and reconnecting with Harley. This is not only a delightful romance, but also a beautiful story about individual growth, forgiveness, family and a second chance at love.
