Wishing on Buttercups by Miralee Ferrell ~ Review

Wishing on Buttercups (Love Blossoms in Oregon #2)Lucie's Review:

Beth Roberts and her Aunt Wilma reside in the boarding house owned by Katherine and Micah Jacobs (the couple from the last book), while they are they are there Beth meets Jeffery Tucker, another boarder who is also a writer. Beth has a wonderful gift, that is also her secret, her talent for drawing.
Jeffery finds a book of beautiful sketches in the bushes, and decides from that moment to make find their artist his mission. He is surprised to find that the mysterious artist is none other than the shy young woman staying at his boarding house.
Can Beth let go of the hurt that haunts her and more forward with her life and perhaps find love?

This book has a whole cast of characters, many of which may be familiar to you if you've read the previous book in the series,  Blowing on Dandelions. The characters were well developed and brought a feeling of community to the story. There were also times of good dialogue, though misunderstandings abounded between Jeffery and Beth. The setting was realistic and faith was an important theme.

Jeffery was may favorite character. He continued to try and get to know Beth even when she pulled back and acted strangely. He is determined to make it on his own, even though his family is wealthy.
He is a man of honor and of faith.

Overall this was a sweet romance with plenty of side stories and threads all interweaving and coming together throughout the town. There were times though that I felt more was going on in their heads than in real-life, and this wasn't the easiest book to follow. But if you enjoyed Blowing on Dandelions, this would definitely one to read :)

Back Cover:

Can Love Survive When Secrets Collide? She’d kept her secrets safely hidden—those from her past, and those in the present. Some things, Beth Roberts knows, a lady simply doesn’t share, even in the 1880’s West. The townspeople would never understand. No one ever has. Jeffery Tucker, a handsome young writer, has kept his own secrets. He doesn’t have a right to pry into Beth’s affairs but finds himself strangely drawn to her and intrigued by the whiff of mystery surrounding her. Beth knows that one day someone will unravel the threads of her past. And when two men from her past arrive, the truth might just hurt . . . Beth’s future and her heart. As shadowy memories surface, Beth sketches the scenes she sees and is shocked by what—and who—her illustrations reveal. Dare she risk her heart again?

Miralee Ferrell and her husband, Allen, live on eleven acres in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge in southern Washington State, where they love to garden, play with their dogs, take walks, and go sailing. She is also able to combine two other passions—horseback riding and spending time with her grown children—since her married daughter lives nearby, and they often ride together on the wooded trails near their home.

Ironically, Miralee, now the author of eight books, with many more on the way, never had a burning desire to write—at least more than her own memoirs for her children. So she was shocked when God called her to start writing after she turned fifty. To Miralee, writing is a ministry that she hopes will impact hearts, and she anticipates how God will use each of her books to bless and change lives.
