Sometimes life’s most magical journeys bring you back to where it all began…From New York Times bestselling author Emily March comes The Christmas Wishing Tree, an enchanting account of the magic and miracle of Christmas.
A man who loves adventure and the open sea, Devin Murphy returns for a short Christmas trip to his small hometown of Eternity Springs. Immersed in the joy and magic of the holiday season all around him, he doesn’t hesitate to play along when a young boy phones Santa to ask for a very special wish. Devin never guesses that a wrong number has the potential to make everything in his life so right.
Jenna Stockton adopted Reilly when he needed a mother and she intends to keep him safe. A small town across the country called Eternity Springs seems like a good place to hide from their past without any complications —until sexy Santa himself discovers her secrets. When Devin proposes a daring plan to face down the danger together and defeat it once and for all, she is tempted. Maybe Devin really is capable of making wishes come true? Perhaps in a Christmas wish they’ll both find the miracle they’ve been looking for all along…
A delightful Christmas novel in the New York Times bestselling Eternity Springs series.
March's Eternity Springs, Colo. (last seen in First Kiss of Spring), is the small town ne plus ultra, the perfect setting for this lovely tale of fortunate happenstance and Christmas magic. Australian sport fishing guide Devin Murphy is surprised when he picks up a call from six-year-old Reilly Stockton, who dialed a random number seeking Santa Claus. Playing along, Devin can't satisfy Reilly's Christmas wish for a new dad, but he wishes he could get to know Reilly and his obstetrician mom, Jenna, who joins the call. Jenna and Reilly make their way to Eternity Springs, desperate for a peaceful holiday away from a violent stalker; two summers later, Devin joins them there and realizes that they may be reason enough for him to stick around and put down roots. As March conveniently set up in previous books, Eternity Springs is filled with bodyguards, veterans, and spooks ready to help Jenna and Reilly and happily married, procreating couples eager to welcome an OB/GYN. Devin and Jenna's rich and nuanced love story will satisfy series fans and new readers.
