The Wishing Tree By Marybeth Whalen Giveaway!

Savvy, determined Ivy Marshall discovers that her husband has cheated on her on the very same day her sister's perfect boyfriend proposes on national television. When Ivy's mother asks her to return to her family's beach home to plan her sister's upcoming wedding, she decides to use the excuse to escape from the pain of her broken heart. When her return to Sunset Beach, North Carolina, brings Ivy face to face with her former fiance, old feelings are rekindled and she wonders if there is a future for them. However, when Ivy refuses to talk to her husband, he resorts to tweeting to her, expressing his remorse and making it clear he doesn't want to give up on their marriage. As she helps prepare the wishing tree for her sister's wedding, she must examine her dreams for her own future and what true love should be.

Of course I am going to love this book it is set in North Carolina not far from where I live.
What a sweet story of forgiveness and grace. I could not wait to read the ending to see it turned out to have a happy ever after.
The Wishing Tree is such a neat idea, I loved it.
MaryBeth is such a super, fantastic author, she can draw you in from page one and she never lets you go until the very last page.
