All her adult life Pepper Watson has strived to escape from Wishing Bridge Farm where she and her sisters were brought up after the untimely death of their parents. Now she’s back on the farm after breaking up with her fiancé who was also her vindictive and manipulative boss – though her sisters are unaware of any of this. Returning home means facing up to the past, including Ben Cooper. The two have a past history – and it wasn’t particularly friendly!
Ben is trying to expand his business to help pay the medical bills incurred by his parents whilst his twin brother, Pepper’s best friend, was ill and dying, but also trying to keep his motivation to himself. It is only when Pepper’s ex turns up, aggressive and rude, that Ben inadvertently discovers why she’s left Seattle and returned home. It is also when Pepper turns to Ben to pretend they’re in a relationship to help push her ex away and their first kiss certainly does the trick in more ways than one! That’s the start of a very different relationship between the two but there are plenty of memories, obstacles, misunderstandings, turmoil, angst and a plethora of funny moments as they journey towards their potential HEA together.
This is the third story about the sisters of Wishing Bridge Farm. The first story was ‘Falling for the Best Man’ and the second ‘The Wedding Planner’s Baby’. Whilst the books work well as standalone, they do follow chronologically so I recommend reading them in order – they’re great stories, anyway! Set mainline the town of Sunshine, this story is filled with tension, secrets and humour – I loved Stan, the taxi driver and many of the other characters! It is a fun, entertaining read that I really enjoyed escaping into and have no hesitation in highly recommending.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this novel via NetGalley; this is my honest opinion after choosing to read the book.
Pepper Watson has lost everything–her job, her fiancé, and the future she’d so carefully planned. Now she’s back at Wishing Bridge trying to figure out her next step. Her new plan does not include the ever-so-sexy Ben Cooper. Nope. She’s getting her life back on track, and getting out of this little town as fast as possible.
Ben Cooper is doing his best to build his business and help his parents. The last thing he needs is the distraction that is Pepper Watson. She might be prickly every time he’s in her presence, but he sees another side of her. The side that has set aside her dreams to help her sisters. And then there’s the fact that kissing her is pretty much the best thing that’s ever happened to him.
He’s putting down roots. She’s running away. It’s going to take more than a wish for these two to find their happily ever after.
