Welcome to the wonderful Wishing Wood, where incredible treehouses twinkle under a blanket of stars, the sea sparkles through the leaves, and true love is in the air. From the bestselling author of Sunlight over Crystal Sands comes this gorgeously romantic tale.
Indigo Bloom is on her way to beautiful Wishing Wood with some very big news. Two months ago she shared an incredible night with the most amazing man. She didn’t think she’d ever see River Brookfield again, but she never imagined she’d be showing up out of the blue to tell him she’s pregnant with his child.
Indigo’s heart longs for a fairytale ending. There’s just one problem: River doesn’t remember who Indigo is…
Crushed that a night that meant so much to her was so forgettable for him, Indigo resolves to keep her identity and her pregnancy secret until she gets to know the real River. But as they spend more time together, it’s clear that the incredible connection they shared that first night is stronger than ever, and that River might remember more than Indigo first thought.
The closer they get, Indigo’s secret becomes harder to share. Can Indigo find the courage to tell River the truth? And if she does, will she get the fairytale ending she’s been dreaming of?
Make all your dreams come true this summer with this feel-good love story that will sweep you off your feet. It’s the perfect read for fans of Jill Mansell, Sarah Morgan and Sue Moorcroft.
Three brothers have created a gorgeous place at Wishing Wood. Treehouses that serve as bed and breakfasts, and even a few homes. The amazing beauty of the treehouses started with dreams of the three Brookfield brothers, River, Heath and Bear. As the story begins, Indigo Bloom has some news to share, news that she has reservations about but it really makes her quite happy. She had an amazing night a couple of months ago and has discovered that night resulted in her pregnancy. She wants to let the father know. She remembers every moment of that night but cannot believe that River doesn't even remember her.
Indigo takes a job there, and struggles to find a way to tell River her news. Meanwhile, she finds herself drawn into his extended family and the beauty that she finds in the idyllic setting. She works to find the courage to tell River, and faces some confusion as their connection now proves incredibly powerful - yet he doesn't remember her.
What a sentimental story. When Indigo arrives she is jobless and homeless. River's kindness compassion shows from the start, and she soon has much more than she needs. As lovely as Indigo and River were in this wonderful story, his young daughter was a delight, as well as all of the other characters in this lovely story.
The Blossom Tree of Dreams is the ninth book that I have read by Holly Martin over the past few years. Each and every book has been thoroughly enjoyable. I am more than eager to spend more time with the next two books in this trilogy.
Reviewer's note: I want to spend my next vacation in a treehouse!
Many thanks to Holly Martin for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
I live in a little white cottage overlooking the sea. I studied media at university which led to a very glitzy career as a hotel receptionist followed by an even more glamorous two years working in a bank. The moment that one of my colleagues received the much coveted carriage clock for fifteen years’ service was the moment when I knew I had to escape. I quit my job and returned to university to train to be a teacher. Three years later, I emerged wide eyed and terrified that I now had responsibility for the development of thirty young minds. I taught for four years and then escaped the classroom to teach history workshops, dressing up as a Viking one day and an Egyptian High Priestess the next. But the long journeys around the UK and many hours sat on the M25 gave me a lot of time to plan out my stories and I now write full time, doing what I love.
I have been writing for 6 years. I was shortlisted for the New Talent Award at the Festival of Romance 2012. My short story won the Sunlounger competition and was published in the Sunlounger anthology in 2013. I won the Carina Valentine’s competition at the Festival of Romance 2013 with my novel The Guestbook. I was shortlisted for Best Romantic Read, Best eBook and Innovation in Romantic Fiction at the Festival of Romance 2014.
