Sunny Shelly’s Review: Make A Wish by Helena Hunting


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…

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Make A Wish is the third and final book in the Spark House series, and I loved the journey that youngest sister Harley went through with Gavin, the hot widowed dad she used to nanny for. This book had a heavier feel to it than the others did, simply because Gavin was kind of stuck in the past as far as grieving his late wife Marcie (who died the day their daughter Peyton was born) and his feelings about making a future with Harley.

Helena Hunting infused this book with her signature charm and wit, and gracefully handled how Gavin came to terms with moving past the love he lost. I also felt that the issues Gavin had with his mother-in-law and her grief were handled wonderfully. Sure, Karen was mean and snippy, but once they really got into things, it was clear that she was consumed by grief herself. And Payton is a wonderful little girl and brought so much to the story.

I went back and forth between listening to this book on audio and reading it, and I adored how Jason Clarke and Stella Bloom brought these characters to life.

Make A Wish is a wonderful story about finding love after loss, and I think it was my favorite of the bunch. And I loved all three books! And the bonus epilogue was a fantastic wrap-up for this series!

I received a complimentary copy from St. Martin’s Press via NetGalley and voluntarily left a review.
