Dance Me A Dream (Book 7)

As guardian to her two younger half siblings, Tara Honeycutt has forgotten what it's like to be a normal twenty-something. When a major gas line breaks, leaving them with no heat, no hot water, and no way to cook for Christmas, Jace Applewhite invites Tara and her sibs out to his family's Christmas tree farm. Will a good old fashioned farmhouse Christmas be enough to get Tara to give him a second glance?

See You Again (Book 8)

Mayor Sandra Crawford has survived divorce and cancer, but she's not at all sure she'll survive the discovery that her town's benefactor is actually the man she nearly left her husband for almost 30 years ago.

The Christmas Fountain (Book 9)

After finding out her Mr. Right was actually Mr. Wrong, Mary Alice is taking a break from love to chair her favorite holiday charity. Chad thinks volunteering is the perfect way to get to know his Christmas crush. Will he manage to overcome her once bitten, twice shy caution?

I really enjoy Kait's books because they tell an interesting story without getting into all kinds of graphic sex scenes. These books were great reads for an easy afternoon read in your lounge chair or at the beach or anywhere. Pleasant and relaxing. I look forward to more of her books.

I really do want to live in Wishful. These boxed sets are great as you get a chance to stay a while and meet more of the wonderful characters that live in this town. Kait Nolan's characters are all people I want to be friends with. Each story is standalone but just like chocolate chip cookies, one is never enough! This volume has a mix of new love, second chance love and love after heartbreak. Each story is unique and has the ability to tug on the heartstrings as well as make you laugh out loud.

Dance Me A Dream Dance Me A Dream is so much more than a sweet romance. It's a story with heart and soul. A story of sacrifice, heartache, lending aid to those in need, and love. Lots of love. Love of family, love for those in need of a caring word and a helping hand, and romantic love. Tara is a strong, capable woman with a heart of gold. Jace is a dream come true- at least to me. He has a heart as big as they come. He is sensitive, loves kids, and a romantic. WOW! See You Again See You Again is a delightful second chance romance featuring a middle-aged couple, Sandy and Trey. I love stories with older couples because I can really relate to them. Sandy and Trey have dealt with life's trials and tribulations and come out stronger and wiser. I was pleased to see the issue that caused them to separate 30 years ago was addressed in a straightforward manner early on. Trey's idea for a surprise date was a dandy. It definitely set the stage for the rest of their relationship. I love the town of Wishful. A community that pulls together to help their own is a wonderful place to live. Even with everybody knowing everyone's business, I would love to live there. I strongly urge you to read See You Again. Kait Nolan's books are well-written and filled with unique characters you will fall in love with. Guaranteed. The Christmas Fountain Once again, Kait Nolan has written a charming, sweet romance. Mary Alice and Chad make a terrific couple. Both are loving, compassionate, passionate people. Chad is darn near perfect. Definitely a swoon-worthy hero. The date he planned was beyond romantic. *sigh* I'm thinking I need to make a trip to Wishful and toss my coin in the fountain. If you're looking for a delightful, well-written Christmas story with lovable characters and a dash of humor, look no further. I urge you to read all the books in the Wishful series.

Kait Nolan has managed to add three more stories to the Wishful line-up. The town of Wishful is such a great place. And the people are always so wonderful. Dance Me A Dream finds Tara trying to make ends meet after she gave up school and a chance to be a ballerina so she could raise her step brother and sister. Wishful seems to be just the place for her to do this. Jace is home for the holidays from college where he is completing his master’s degree before coming home to take over the family farm. Because of some unfortunate occurrences, Tara and the kids find themselves in the house with no power and no source of heat. Jace offers them a small apartment over one of his barns and Tara reluctantly accepts. But men don’t want to have anything to do with a woman who has a ready-made family. Can Jace convince Tara to take a chance on him? And can Jace help Tara fulfill her dream of dancing the Sugar Plum Fairy? See You Again---Sandy was supposed to leave her husband and run away with Trey but then things happened and she didn’t. Years later, Trey is successful and has built a great empire. He has several holdings in Wishful, including a hotel. But everyone knows him as Gerald. When Sandy meets him, she realizes he is the man she left waiting for her. Can they rekindle their relationship, now that she is divorced? Will her ex-husband cause trouble when he returns to town? Can Trey help Sandy without her feeling he is taking over? The Christmas Fountain---The fountain in Wishful has a history of granting wishes made by those who throw coins into it. Chad is a physician who has come to Wishful to work in the ER so he can slow his pace and start thinking about a future with a wife and family. Mary Alice meets him when she accompanies a friend to the ER for care. She was left by the man she thought she loved. To make matters worse, a few weeks later he marries the woman he left her for. Now Mary Alice is trying to decide if she should take a chance on Chad. When she sees her ex with his new wife and learns that they are pregnant, it is like the knife is driven deep in her heart. Then she searches for Chad and finds him kissing a woman who is beautiful and what she isn’t. And she feels betrayed again. But what did she really see? When Chad tries to explain, she turns him away and tells him to leave. Can they resolve their issues? Will Mary Alice work through her feelings and realize she needs to give Chad a chance to explain?

I WAS SO EXCITED FOR DANCE ME A DREAM!!!! Tara (who you may remember from Riley and Liam's story) finally gets her own!! This is probably my favorite so far of all 9 stories. (Though there is definitely some stiff competition from Riley and Liam's story Know Me Well.... they do something for Tara in their book and I was like, OMG MY HEART.) My only problem with Dance Me A Dream was that it was too short! I wanted more time to spend with them! lol. Interestingly enough, this volume also has my least favorite so far too. I won't give anything away, but I didn't really like Sandra and Gerald's story at all. Which is weird, because I like them as characters in all of the other books! And finally, it was nice to see Mary Alice again, glad she got her HEA! Overall even after 9 books I still really enjoy the series.

Dance Me a Dream - Kait Nolan is one of my favorite authors and I have read just about every book in this series. We have met Tara before in the Wishful Series. She is raising her siblings and having a hard time making ends meet. Jace sees her and will do just about anything to get to spend time with her. He is also great with the children. Love the slow build up of their relationship. You gotta read this one. See You Again - It's been 30 years but sometimes love never truly dies. Sandy & Trey meet again. Will they end up together this time? We also have Cam & Norah's wedding!!! I loved how Norah had to let others help her because of everything happening or not happening with the wedding. Sandy was so much like Norah and I admired how Trey hung in there. Honestly, at one point if I had been him I would have just left. But...... I love this series!!! The Christmas Fountain - I was skeptical about reading about Mary Alice but I ended up really liking this book. She is one strong woman and I really felt for her. Chad is such a sweet guy but he IMO I think he should have tried harder to explain considering he knew about Mary Alice's past. A short quick read but was well written and characters were developed. Love the cover.

Dance Me A Dream It may not be the Christmas season right now, but this story is timeless. Several other readers have said it before, it’s just like reading a Hallmark movie. There is just so much emotion packed into this little book it was spilling out of my eyes. I’ve adored Tara since I first read about her in the earlier books and I loved seeing her getting her own happy-ever-after hero. Jace, and his whole family, is pretty much perfect: sweet, patient, kind, caring, loving, and adores children. Where can I find a hero like that for myself? I will happily read everything ever published about Wishful and keep coming back for more. See You Again Sigh! I've been waiting not so patiently for this story ever since the end of the first book in the series. It was worth every moment of the wait. Over the course of all the books set in Wishful, we've gotten to know a little about both Sandra and Trey. And this time we get to know what happened thirty years ago that pulled them apart and made them into the people they are today. I loved seeing Sandra interact with all of her extended family. Those are some of my favorite scenes in the book. Seeing Trey learn how to navigate a relationship with a strong woman used to doing everything on her own and set in her ways was both heartbreaking and enlightening, as Sandra needed to learn that she has to meet him in the middle. I can't wait to see who the next pair to get hitched in Wishful is going to be. The Christmas Fountain When I first read the description of this book, I didn’t immediately recognize Mary Alice as a character I had read before. But as I began reading it all started clicking in to place. I have to admit feeling a little uncomfortable seeing Judd from Mary Alice’s point of view. I invested so much emotion in him and Autumn getting their happily-ever-after, that I don’t quite know what to do with my feelings of righteous indignation on Mary Alice’s behalf now that I’m invested in her happily-ever-after. I think this is a brilliant example of just how talented the author is; that she can write characters that we love and hate in equal proportion depending on the angle we’re looking from. And Chad? Oh Chad. This man can do virtually no wrong by me – idiot timing for dramatic revelations not withstanding. The sweet, thoughtful things he does for Mary Alice to show how much she means to him are just the most precious things I’ve ever witnessed. This quick read had all of the wonder and magic of the holiday season. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book through Booksprout.

I don’t remember Tara & Jace from previous books but that’s ok, their story is great. Patience is definitely a virtue for these two. I wish guys like that existed in the real world. Book 2 - Sandra & Trey I do remember and loved reading their story. But... I did find it a little incredible that she didn’t know who he was? I had friends in college that were very superficial but I knew their real names! Anyway their story had the fringes of Cam & Norah who we all know & love so it was great fill in details. The vows!!! Book 3 was such a feel good, small town romance. Yeah a bit of drama going back to Judd & Autumns story but Mary Alice rallied faster than I thought she would. Thank God. Some of these Wishful women are stubborn with a capital S. Great stand alone stories even if you haven’t read any other Wishful romances. Thank you Kait!!!

Dance me a dream: a really clean, sweet romance. Loved how Jace considered Tara’s circumstances and incorporated that to win her heart. The cherry on top was her Christmas present from Jace. See you again: lovely story that proves that there is no age limit to romance and rekindling love. Once you stop living in the past, understanding the real meaning behind the actions and start trusting someone, love will find a way. The Christmas Fountain: love will find you at the most unexpected times. A wonderful story about true romance and proofing that love is patient. From the start of the story you are rooting for Chad to win over Mary Alice and show her what true love feels like. Three wonderful romances that warm the heart and will even make the most sceptical person believe in love. Throwing in Christmas traditions in two of the stories just makes even more enjoyable to read. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Wishful Volume 3 provides diversified story lines so you don’t feel like you are reading the same story just with different names. Young romance, a second chance and moving forward make the books interesting and enjoyable to read. I love the way Kait brings in people and settings from other books so you have a connection with the residents of Wishful. Even though each of her books can be a stand alone read, I get pleasure from having other characters mentioned and subtly intertwined with the current storyline. All three books of Volume 3 are delightful to read.

Sweet Wishful Romances... Dance Me A Dream - Eighteen months ago, Tara gave up dance and college to take care of her half-brother and half-sister. Tara makes a wish at the fountain for the children to have a good Christmas and for herself - to have a life of a normal girl. Jace is home for the holidays and Tara catches his attention. In Wishful, Mississippi wishes can come true. Due to a gas line problem, which will cut off her gas supply until after Christmas, she agrees to move into Jace’s family home. This is a wonderful sweet romance. I enjoyed it very much.. See You Again - Another wonderful trip to Wishful… This is a book about second chances. Thirty years have gone by since Trey and Sandy have seen each other. Now circumstances arise where Trey decides to see Sandy again. When they end up married in Vegas, Sandy wants to keep in quiet until after her son’s wedding. This book has humor and romance. The Christmas Fountain - Mary Ann doesn’t feel like she can complain when her former boyfriend is married with 2 months of their breakup. She had been warned for years that no one would ever be as close to him as Autumn. When she takes her cousin, Finn, to the E.R., Chad, the E.R doctor is attracted to Mary Ann. They soon start dating after he becomes involved in the charity that she chairs, Fountain of Hope. Unlike her last relationship, Mary Ann wants to be someone’s first priority. Maybe she will find that with Chad. This is another sweet romance set in Wishful, MS. I love this book. Chad is one of the sweetest men that you would ever meet. Every time I get a chance to visit Wishful, I take it. I have never been disappointed with a Kait Nolan story. I was given an ARC of this book set by the author through Booksprout. This is my honest and voluntarily given review. I love these books. I recommend this book and series

I have come to love the stories written by this author, and of the three stories in this bundle, my favorite one is See You Again. I absolutely loved the story. It centers around Sandra (Sandy) Crawford, and billionaire Gerald (Trey) Peyton. They met when they were in college. She was married and though nothing physical happened between them, it’s obvious they fell in love. CIrcumstances in life causes a separation and any further contact , until almost 30 years later. Others will tell you more about the plot , I will go a different route. This is a love story about second chances. About a woman that has had lots of obstacles in life and because of them is independent and doesn’t want a man to come to her “rescue”. She feels if she lets a man into her life and heart, he’ll want to take over and she will be “lost “ in the relationship. While we have a man , that has loved her all this time and just wants to make her happy . He is learning to understand her. He “gets” her but fears that unless she accepts that his love is one of support and only wanting the best for her, she will never be able to love him fully until she realizes he indeed “gets” her. Kudos to Ms Nolan not only for a heartfelt story, but also for writing a book about more mature individuals. Dancing Away Me a Dream - the story of Tara Honeycutt, her siblings and Jace Applewhite, will pull the strings in your heart . Have a hankie ready. The Christmas Fountain, though not my favorite , still was entertaining. I was gifted this copy of the book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
