Blog Tour: Summer of Two Wishes by Julia London



Macy is distraught when she hears the news that her husband has been killed while serving in the military. While she misses her husband dearly, she can't help but fall for Wyatt who shows her once again what it feels like to be truly alive. She finally feels like it is time to move on and she marries Wyatt. And just when she thought she was settled into this new life, the shock of a lifetime hits like lightening. Finn is alive and he's come back for his wife.

It was really hard during some parts to keep reading this book. My husband served in Afghanistan and I would worry every second of every day. There would be weeks where I had no contact with him whatsoever. It was an extremely difficult time in my life and this book brought back all of those feelings. I have so much respect for the men and women who not only serve this country and the families that they leave behind. It is an incredibly difficult thing to do and my heart goes out to everyone who has a loved one living day to day in the line of fire.

If you're up for a romance with more drama than daytime soap operas, you'll fall in love with this book. It was a wonderful romantic read that keeps you interested.

  12. Wow! This really does seem like a great book. I imagine that having had to go through those times of not knowing how your husband was doing really did hit home for you with this novel. I have so much respect and thankfulness to soldiers and their families. You have all sacrificed so much. Thank you for the review and giveaway.
