The Wishing Season by Denise Hunter has the perfect cover to read at this time of year. As you can see from the picture it just looks like a cozy little romance that makes you want to curl up with a warm quilt and some hot chocolate and let the hours pass.
PJ has always dreamed of opening a restaurant of her own. When she is giving the opportunity to receive a house for free, she enters the contest thinking she has the best idea for the old house and will win. The problem is Cole is also confident his idea is best, he wants to open a home for foster kids in transition is the best idea.
The owner decides both ideas are wonderful and decides to let them share the space for a year. One upstairs and the other downstairs. At the end of the year she will make her decision as to who wins and gets ownership of the house.
A cute light romance is a great way to pass the busy holiday season. It is also a wonderful gift for that reader on your list that you just don't know what else to get. Maybe even wrap a couple of envelopes of hot chocolate.
