Wish You Were Here by Karly Lane is certainly a book to add to your TBR pile.
The story is set in the New England Tablelands. It’s all about Reggie, who tossed aside her job in the UK, to return to her childhood home after her parents were involved in a bad traffic accident.
She soon makes the move a more permanent thing when her brother becomes sick and passes away. No matter what, she can’t seem to get it through to her parents that she is happy living and working on the farm, and that she no longer wishes to return to her old job.
She is happy running things and looking after the farm stay cabins that they have up and running. All but the one last cabin that her brother had not finished when he became sick. It remains unfinished until an emotionally wounded veteran named Tim comes to stay, and he ends up offering to use his builder’s skills to complete the last farm stay cabin.
While Tim works his way into Reggie’s heart, Reggie is working her way into his.
This is not a sloppy romance filled with angst. It is so very real and there is some drama with wild dogs and missing cattle thrown into the mix. There were so many parts where I found myself giggling out loud, and then having to read funny sections to a friend so they could understand what I was laughing about.
There is sadness but the real focus of this book is on the healing and the joy of life.
A seriously wonderful book and perfect if you are looking for something to make you smile and touch your heart.
