    What a Wish

    Oh, Jessica and her wishes. What a heartwarming and loving story. We get Phil's story with Mallory. Phil hasn't gotten past a lot of his childhood and issues with his upbringing and that hinders his blossoming relationship with Mallory. I loved getting to read their story and Jessica's fun and insightful way of making her feelings known. I loved that there was an epilogue with another one of Jessica's wishes. I hope we get to see another glimpse of their future sometime. Can't wait for the next book in this series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    enjoyable

    This book is one of those ones that's hard to review. It's a middle of the road book, neither exceptional nor terrible. The characters are okay, and the love story equally fine. I got the feeling the author wanted to create a heartwarming love story, so constructed this story around the premise of a single dad with a Down's Syndrome kid. I think if you like a story about single dad's, you should give this one a go. Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    will Jessica get a mother?

    Jessica an 11 yr old little girl with Down Syndrome makes a wish every yr over her birthday candles that she could have a mother. Something she's never had as her own mother walked out on her and her father when she was just a few weeks old. Her father Phil seems unable to let go of past hurts some real some perceived from his wife walking out on him and the way he was raised by his own mother who was herself a single parent. Enter Mallory who was also raised in a single parent household. Can they learn to trust each other and let go of the past without someone or even all of them getting hurt in the process? I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as I did the first three in the series but I still look forward to getting my hands on book five of the series. I love how real everything this author writes is. No over exaggeration of every one being perfect of body or action. They are just real every day people struggling to get through life as we all do.

    Lovely love story

    **I voluntarily read an early copy of this title courtesy of NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review** Jessica's Wish is a great story about realizing that while love can be difficult at times, it is also the thing that can mean the most in life. Jessica is the eleven year old daughter of Phil Martinson-Canton. She has Down syndrome and has lived her entire life without her mother, as she chose to walk away from Phil and her daughter when she was a tiny baby. Until now, Jessica hasn't seemed to be phased by not having a mother in her life, but she's gotten to an age where she does understand and she really wants a mother of her own. And, she's not afraid to make that known! Phil has always wanted to do what is best for his daughter, but while finding her a mother figure might be what is best, he's not sure he's willing to open them both up to going through the kind of hurt they could should another woman choose to come into their life and then leave. Mallory O'Connell has been living in California for the past several years, but she's now returned to her hometown to help take care of her mother following a debilitating accident. When Mallory meets Jessica, the two hit it off immediately. They have drawing and painting in common and Mallory introduces Jess to the world of comics. Mallory also thinks Phil is pretty great, err hot, as well. As Mallory and Phil grow closer, insecurities and fears from the past begin to rear their ugly head. Will these two be able to move past the hurt they both carry from earlier on in their lives to make a go of it or are they destined to let something that could be amazing pass them by? Another great book by Marci Bolden and one that I think many will enjoy!

    Well Done

    My first book by Marci Bolden, and I am so glad I read it. She has a way with words, I was swept right into the story. I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough. Well Done.
