Saturday Spotlight: Wishes at Willow Lake by Mary Manners

Good Morning Friends and a beautiful day it is!

As usual, it is my pleasure to bring you great books by prolific authors and, with more than 25 titles out, Mary Manners is no slouch in the writing department!

Today we're spotlighting her book, Wishes at Willow Lake

Can a bookworm and a builder find love among the romance shelves?

Mason Donovan has a secret he’s spent years overcoming: dyslexia. Through school, he was viewed as the proverbial kid with all brawn and no brain. He wanted nothing more than to be included with the other guys in his high school classes and to have a date with Josie Parker. His longing leads to a reckless escapade at Willow Lake and the death of an innocent child.

Josie Parker loves reading so much that she decides to open a bookstore/cafĂ©. Among the pages, she finds relief from a childhood marred by the remorse that she never quite measured up to her mother's expectations. Business is booming, so when she needs an expansion to the facilities she calls the best builder in the South: Mason Donovan. She doesn’t expect him to return to Willow Lake so quickly, or to look so good.

Is it possible for a bookworm and a builder to find love and healing among the romance shelves?


Josie glanced in the direction Ali pointed and gasped as her gaze captured the glossy image on the magazine’s cover. Her breath whooshed out as her belly fluttered. “Oh, my.”

“Oh my, is right.” Ali chuckled, nestling Rory to her side as she navigated a path through the littered floor. “Mason Donovan has made his mark in the world.”

“Mason Donovan…” Josie bent to retrieve a copy of the magazine. Her pulse raced as she drank in the image of him clad in faded Levi’s and a flannel shirt, sleeves rolled to expose sinuous muscles along his forearms. A hardhat and scuffed work boots only served to improve his rugged good looks, and the tool belt slung low along his hips kicked her pulse into next week.

"Is that really him?"

Mary couldn't write a "bad" book if she were ordered to do so! lol Looking forward to starting the Willow Lake Series. Yes, I'm behind. And yes, it will still be wonderful when I find a minute to dive in! :)
