Wishing On Buttercups – Book Review
Some of us are so scarred from our pasts, we carry hidden wounds deep inside of us. Others are deeply wounded both inside and out. These people mask their internal pain but find their external scars harder to hide.
And then there are those like Beth Roberts – also known as Elizabeth Corwin in certain circles – who must deal with the impact of both emotional and physical wounding in their lives.
Beth is a talented young illustrator who is leading somewhat of a double life. Beth is torn between trying to escape from the fleeting memories of a painful past while simultaneously trying to make sense of it all. As a result, she has trouble trusting those around her.
Beth is a woman with secrets – secrets she is intent on keeping hidden.
Jeffrey Tucker is a young man who has left his family behind to follow his dreams. He wants nothing more than to become a writer – and he’s determined to make it on his own.
He’s curious… inquisitive… the kind of guy who can’t help but notice what’s happening in the lives of those around him… especially those who catch his eye.
Although he has no intentions of being drawn into the affairs of another person, Jeffrey cannot help but be intrigued by – and attracted to – Beth.
As fate would have it, however, Beth wants nothing to do with Jeffrey because – unbeknownst to him – Jeffrey threatens the facade she has worked so hard to create and maintain.
What happens when circumstances draw Beth and Jeffrey together and they find their lives increasingly intertwined? Will threatening strangers and people from their pasts draw them together – or pull them apart?
Wishing On Buttercups by Miralee Ferrell is the second book in the Love Blossoms In Oregon series – and it’s a book that you won’t want to miss!
You can delve right into the story if you like – but if you love Historical Fiction and Westerns are your thing, I recommend you start with Blowing On Dandelions – the first book in the series. That way, you’ll feel like you already know several of the characters when you settle down to read this book!
Miralee is a talented story-teller whose prose draws you into Wishing on Buttercups right from the start. In places, I found myself so involved with the characters, I felt like cheering for the good guys – and booing the bad guys – just as if I were in the theater, watching the story on the big screen!
I loved Wishing On Buttercups and rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
