Review - The Christmas Wishing Tree by Emily March

The Christmas Wishing Tree
by Emily March
Series: Eternity Springs, #15
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 27, 2018

Sometimes life’s most magical journeys bring you back to where it all began…From USA Today 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.

4.5 Stars
“Because I choose to live my vision, not my circumstance.” – Celeste Blessing
The Christmas Wishing Tree was the perfect way to gear up for the holiday season, leaving me with a happy heart and firm belief in the magic that Emily March has created in Eternity Springs.

I have only read three books in this series, but it didn’t take more than a few pages of the first to know that I was going to love the small town “where broken hearts come to heal” and the little bit of magic that seems to have embodied itself in the form of Celeste Blessing, “Eternity Springs’ very own angel.”

This book focuses on Devin and Jenna, two people who don’t reside in Eternity Springs but find themselves in need of the comfort and healing it provides. And it wouldn’t be Eternity Springs if Celeste didn’t also add in a bit of her magic and wisdom, which helps these two find their way to one another – who knew a burner cell phone with a number advertised as the Santa Hotline would start a chain of events that would lead Jenna and Devin right to each other and fulfill a child’s ultimate Christmas wish?! And even though their road to finding one another was not easy, Eternity Springs provided all the right support for Jenna, Reilly, and Devin, as they unraveled the mystery of Jenna’s stalker and find a way to become a family.

Emily March has such a way of embedding true emotion into each of her characters. We are treated to glimpses of many of the residents of Eternity Springs, and each one has been brought to life with their own unique personality and character, guaranteeing that each story in this series is one that will warm your heart and renew your belief in true love. The little details that she also adds to the story, like the Christmas Wishing Tree, and her ability to convey that family feeling the entire town has, adds to the warmth of the story.

This is book 15 in the series but can easily be read as a stand-alone. When needed, the author gives enough background to each of her characters to ensure continuity of the story line – but let me warn you, she’ll also give you just enough to make you want to go and read them all! So even though you can read this on its own, I would recommend starting at the beginning so you can enjoy each book in the series – something I wish I had done!

I can’t say enough about this series – Eternity Springs has quickly become one of my favorite small towns and I have fallen in love with Emily March’s writing style and voice. I look forward to reading more from this author!

A definite must read for everyone!

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book I received from the Publisher via NetGalley.
