Review: Harper’s Wish

Harper's Wish
Harper’s Wish by Cerella Sechrist
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š Harper Worth is an esteemed food critic. Well, she was an esteemed food critic, until she went a little too far and insulted the wrong restaurant, that of her boss’s goddaughter, and he wasn’t the least bit amused by her harsh words. Her praiseworthy “Worth It” column virtually extinguished overnight by capricious followers, Harper finds herself looking for a new job. She stumbles upon a restaurant, the Rusty Anchor, which appears to live up to its name judging by the exterior of the place. But desperate for work she interviews with the owner and lo and behold he was one of the victims of her disparaging critiques, which cost him his upscale restaurant, Eire. Now he’s relegated to running the Rusty Anchor, his deceased father’s legacy. Connor Callahan can’t believe who’s sitting in front of him. The woman who ruined him, and now she wants a job in his restaurant? Upon discerning her identity Connor shows her the door at first, but then reconsiders. Work for the restaurant she would, and harder than any work in a restaurant she’d ever done before. But when she proves stellar at her duties, and the other workers praise her industriousness, Connor takes pity on her and feels somewhat guilty for putting her through the ringer. Who is this woman who excels at everything and seems to have a heart after all? Connor is soon won over by the attractive woman who is turning out to be a real asset to his restaurant, but when he learns of her future plans, will he still trust the Harper that he thought had changed?
I enjoyed this book. I liked the restaurant setting and learning about the ins and outs of maintaining a restaurant establishment. As is common in Cerella Sechrist’s books, there is great food being prepared or savored, another bonus that readers can appreciate. The relationship between Connor and his daughter was heartwarming, and I Iiked how it highlighted the tenderness and affection of a father for his young daughter. I was also in anticipation of how the two main characters would achieve their happily ever after since the stakes were quite high. All in all, Harper’s Wish was a delightful, wholesome romance that is sure to be enjoyed by lovers of sweet romance.
