Mark your calendars for Tuesday, January 24th, because that’s when Make A Wish by Helena Hunting (aka the last book in the Spark House Series) comes out and it is the adorable and heartwarming romance that you need to read right now!
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. 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…
I think this was my favorite book of the series! Warning: the waterworks will be flowing while reading this book. Peyton is just too sweet and adorable of a character and the bittersweet tragedy that brings Harley and Gavin together is definitely tear-jerking at times. But overall, this book is a great single parent age-gap romance that kind of borders on being a second-chance romance also.
Plus the cameos of the rest of the Spark family is really fun to read about. However, this book would be just as enjoyable if you didn’t read the first two books.
I’m sad to see the Spark Sisters’ stories end, but this age gap/single dad/second-chance romance is such a great conclusion to this series! I highly recommend checking it out as a standalone or as the end of a trilogy.
