What You Wish For by Katherine Center

Release Date - July 14, 2020



Samantha Casey loves her job as a school librarian. She's found incredible joy at inspiring the kids in the school to get lost in books and embrace the joy in life. She hasn't always been happy. She has epilepsy and that made her own childhood miserable.

When her beloved principal and pseudo-father passes away unexpectedly, Sam never expects Duncan Carpenter to be chosen to replace him. She left Duncan years ago and never thought she'd see him again. She hopes it's a different Duncan Carpenter, but it's not. He's back in her life and nothing like she remembers.

The careful, colorful Duncan is now a by-the-book leader whose non-stop rules make him more dictator than vibrant gym teacher. She's not sure she can tolerate the new Duncan and plans to drive him out with the help of her co-workers.

What You Wish For is an entertaining novel. I liked Sam and had Duncan pegged from the start. While it is a romance, it's so much more. It's a solid look at fears, growth, and learning to think from other angles. I had a hard time putting it down.
