Our Review

really enjoyed reading this book. It is part of Shelley Shepard Gray’s Pinecraft Brides series. Even though this is a novella, it was like coming home and catching a glimpse of all my favorite characters and what is going on in their lives. Shelley brings Florida back with beautiful settings, some great pie and warm sunny beaches.

A Wish on Gardenia Street is a short, sweet, simple and to the point novella. I love all the characters in this one and was so happy for Leona and Zack! There is nothing like having your friends and family come together for an Amish wedding. Then the cat Serena! Oh I am so glad she got a small part in this book as well. I love the way Shelley’s characters are so endearing and how they are so willing to help each other out even when their own plates are full. Mattie and Danny I think had to figure out who they each were inside and come into their own. Once they were able to do that things were easier for them.

Even thought this was a novella, the pace of this book was just right and I could not put it down. It read smoothly and brought back a lot of memories for me as I have visited Pinecraft myself. Shelley really has captured it perfectly. I could almost feel the sun on my face and taste that pie from Yoder’s. As the series continues I really hope that we will get to read more about Mattie and some of the other characters mentioned in this novella. I 100% enjoyed this story and highly recommend it! What a great read.
