After receiving a widget for this and looking at the cover and reading the blurb -I’ll admit it - neither really piqued my interest, but I’m not usually one to look a gift widget in the -whatever the widget equivalent of a horse’s mouth is, I downloaded it and have to say, this book is so much more than the cover or the synopsis might lead you to otherwise believe. I enjoyed my time spent reading this lovely, and yes, heartwarming novel.
The coziness of the descriptions really made this book even more enjoyable for me and, despite the serious nature of the plot, this was ultimately soooo utterly satisfying and uplifting a read. The characters and relationships are both relatable and sympathetic and the emotions Darke captures with her words are exquisitely real.
I need to read more of Ms. Darke’s work.

A heartwarming novel about what we are prepared to give—and give up—in the name of love, from the author of Star-Crossed and The Lost Love Song.
Two boxes, both alike in size and shape . . .
Marnie Fairchild is the brains and talent behind Wish & Co., a boutique store that offers a bespoke gift-buying service to wealthy clients with complicated lives. Brian Charlesworth is Marnie’s most prized customer, and today she’s wrapping the perfect anniversary gift for his wife, Suzanne . . . and a birthday present for his mistress, Leona. What could possibly go wrong?
For years, Marnie’s had her heart set on moving Wish & Co. to the historic shopfront once owned by her grandfather. When the chance to bid for the property unexpectedly arises, Marnie—distracted—makes an uncharacteristic mistake. Soon Brian is in a fight to rescue his marriage, and Marnie is scrabbling to keep her dreams alive. With the situation so complicated, the last thing Marnie needs is to fall for Brian and Suzanne’s gorgeous son, Luke.
