Make a Wish ~ Helena Hunting ~ New Release & Review



 With her signature charm and sense of humor, New York Times and USA Today 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 (Spark House, #3)Elizabeth's Review

My rating: 5 of 5 stars - One of the best

Review Copy Provided by Publisher via Net Galley

I normally would not give book 3 in a series a 5 star review. Usually, there is too much connectivity with the prior books for it to fully stand alone (and there is some of that here), but the story told in Make A Wish reached in a grabbed a hold of my heart in a way that I couldn’t give it anything less.

In Make A Wish, we get to spend time with the youngest Spark sister, Harley, as she reconnects with a single dad she used to nanny for. I genuinely like Harley and found her efforts to make a place for herself in the family business endearing. Gavin and his daughter Peyton are also characters that I found myself very much invested in.

The details of the story and evolving relationships are best appreciated by reading the story, but I will say that Ms Hunting approached delicate situations with grace and gentleness that made them relatable. She even managed to make the “villain” of the story someone that I could have empathy toward!

This final installment of the Spark House series delivers a whopper of emotions. Not only do we see Harley attempt to find her happy ending, we also see where Avery and London are now. This definitely wraps things up on a high note!
