Devin Murphy’s heart is torn between Eternity Springs, where his family lives, and the adventure of the open sea. Returning to Eternity Springs from Australia for the holidays, he receives a phone call from a young boy who thought he was calling Santa. Devin goes along, thinking the call was a one off. But, the kid sort of got to him, because instead the hottest toy or gadget, this kid is asking for a daddy.
Her son could be a terrier when he got an idea in his head, and lately, every time she turned around, he’d been yipping and yapping about needing a daddy. How about I just order one online?

A beautiful small town romance with a smattering of suspense. 15th in the Eternity Springs series. Can be read on its own.
I so love this town. By 15, you’d think enough already. Not so. The author brings fresh people with their own heart-to-be-healed issues, with different occupations and needs together into the community. And that community wraps them in love and acceptance.
This one is pure heart.

Eternity Springs #15, Finally, I have been waiting on Devon Murphy's story since he first showed up as a teenager in book 4, Lover's Leap. I love Emily March and this series it's another series I buy in paperback. The whole theme for the series is that Eternity Springs is a place where broken hearts come to heal, so you know it's going to get emotional, I was crying a quarter of the way into the book. Another thing you know about this series is that it will be funny at times with ...more

Although I am not a big fan of Christmas, I do enjoy some Christmas stories, movies, and songs (especially out of season, when one isn’t surrounded by it). The offer to read and review this novel reached me in the middle of a pretty hot summer and it felt like the perfect way to combat the heat. It worked, for sure, and ...more

I was so happy to be able to return to Eternity Springs, the wonderful small town in a series created by Emily March and the setting of THE CHRISTMAS WISHING TREE. There are so many “small town” romances out there that try to create the mood of a loving, accepting place where the people all seem like family and newcomers are welcomed and supported, but there aren’t many that will stand up to Eternity Springs. Ms. March has truly created the idyllic small ...more
