One Wish is a novella written by Jodi Thomas with her trademark Texan setting and characters. And there is a canyon! Yes I associate canyons with Jodi’s books.
Maggie has a general store in town – she is all alone her parents having died. One evening bad men storm her store and it is only due to Sam Thompson’s quick thinking that she is saved from them. Needing to get Maggie to safety because the outlaw may gun for her, Sam takes her deep into the canyon he calls home. Oh my I loved the description of how his home is built.
It’s a novella so things move fast, there is action, we meet a few other delightful characters, a couple who are mean and nasty and one surprising character who arrives at the right moment.
It’s a warm delightful little story and I revelled in it as I read.
