Delaney Newell knows what it means to be powerless. Against the family who wouldn’t support her. Against the man she loved who betrayed her. Against the gossips who won’t let her forget it. But after years of struggling, she’s finally getting her life together.
Sean Murphy has spent years fighting forest fires. The former hotshot turned forester knows the growth that can sprout from unfathomable destruction. That’s what he sees in Delaney—someone who got leveled by life but didn’t stop growing. He's spent the past several months watching the shy red-head blossom, and he really likes what he sees.
When Delaney is accused of a crime she didn’t commit, everyone is willing to believe the worst of her. Everyone except Sean. The woman he knows couldn’t possibly be behind the rash of fires that are keeping the volunteer fire department hopping. Someone is deliberately framing her. Will Delaney trust him enough to help her find the real culprit?

Who hasn’t made a bad decision in their lives? Delaney made some bad decisions and the people of this small town think she has reverted to her past when similar things begin to happen. Sean is new in town and doesn’t know Delaney’s past poor decisions. She is thrilled that it doesn’t matter to him and he stands beside her when no one else does. This story has some twists and turns that drew me in and I couldn’t stop reading it.
I can’t get enough of Wishful
It’s really very simple: I can’t get enough of Wishful. Whether it’s the lighter, sillier side of the original Wishful series or the darker, intrigue-filled Wishing for A Hero series, I want to read everything I can get my hands on about this little southern town. Every one of her citizens is unique. Some are completely lovable, others are less so. Delaney and Sean? I completely adore. Thanks to some bad decisions in her past, Delaney’s now the town scapegoat just about any time something goes wrong. Sean’s new to Wishful and doesn’t know about her past mistakes. That makes his good opinion of her absolutely precious. From past experience with this author’s books, I knew the solution couldn’t be as simple as it first appeared. The twists and turns this pair have to go through for their relationship and to figure out what’s going on kept me turning pages, anxious to find out where I was being led.
I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.
