Cardinal Press, LLC (December 12, 2019)

Holiday Fiction/Holiday Romance/Christmas/Clean & Wholesome Romance



At Christmastime, sometimes even impossible wishes come true…

One word changed Wes Lockhart’s life forever. Cancer. Fighting for his life completely flipped his priorities, making him realize he wanted—no, needed—to use his billions to help others find the kind of second chance he’d been given. The first person he intended to help? The beautiful, caring, and dedicated oncologist who got him through his treatments and ushered him into remission. And what better time than the holidays to become her not-so-secret Santa?

Dr. Paige Regis has spent her entire career helping others, often at the expense of her personal life. She’d love to start a family of her own—but with her current patients and her plans to open a brand-new cancer center, it seems like an impossible dream. It’s not until she reconnects with the charming Wes that she realizes he might just be the man to make all her Christmas wishes come true.

Can Wes and Paige open their hearts to the magic of the season—and each other—to get a shot at their very own Christmas miracle? Or will past hurts and doubts end their happily ever after before it even begins?





I enjoyed The Wish Maker. It is written with a good flow to the story and is easy to read. I was engrossed the entire story. It has humor, dedication, friendship, Christmas magic, and a sweet romance. I was rooting for the main couple and liked how the author paced their relationship, showed their faults, and how they worked through them. One thing that really stood out for me was the couple’s first kiss. I’ve read a lot of romance books, so a lot of first kisses, but this one was written really well and makes an impression. It’s the kiss that really opened their yes to one another. I really liked the group of billionaire friends; loved their camaraderie. I have not read book 1 of the series, but am going to go grab that one too.

Wes sat across from her at a small round table tucked in a back corner. He sipped his Americano.

“I would have taken you for the caramel macchiato type.” He eyed her mug, which was topped with whipped cream, chocolate sprinkles, and a candy cane. “Not peppermint hot chocolate.”

“It’s a Christmas drink. Not as traditional as eggnog, but a close second.”

She took a sip. When she lowered her mug from her mouth, a dollop of whipped cream stuck to her upper lip.

Wes shouldn’t be staring or wishing he could help her with it. He tried to look away, but he couldn’t. Fighting the urge to wipe it off, he handed her a napkin. “You have whipped cream on your mouth.”

“That always happens with these drinks.” She patted her face with the napkin. “But it’s worth it.”

Glad she thought so. Wes never imagined himself envying a napkin.
