Tilly Lockhart’s beloved cupcake business is sinking faster than a bad souffle. She’s out of luck and up to her eyeballs in debt.
Then she inherits a farm from her great aunt Matilda—a woman she never knew existed. But there’s one catch—Tilly must spend one year on her aunt’s farm Dun Roamin’ before she can sell up and save her flailing business.
Faced with two thousand acres of land and a menagerie of neurotic animals, this city slicker must enlist the help of the farm’s sexy co-owner Noah in order to survive this new life.
But just when Noah is opening her heart to small-town life and to love, an unexpected fire uncovers Dun Roamin’s deadly secret. As threads of past sins unravel, secrets are revealed, danger builds, and threats for Tilly to leave things alone and go home grow more deadly with every passing day.
The temptation to give up is strong. But farm life and the spirit of Matilda has dug its claws into her heart, and some long-hidden desire begs Tilly to stay and fight.
With her newfound friends by her side, can she find the inner strength to protect what she’s grown to love? Or will she lose everything, including her life?
If you like lovable characters and heart-warming romance with a dollop of mystery, then you’ll love Matilda’s Wish.
