Workout Wishes and Valentine Kisses by Barbara Hinske ~ 5⭐

Genre: Family Life Fiction ~ Release Date: March 23, 2022

REVIEW: Workout Wishes and Valentine Kisses by Barbara Hinske is book five in The Wishing Tree Series. I know I sound like a broken record but, I really liked this installment of the series. This is the first book I’ve read by this author. I’m hoping the author or one of her fans tells me if this is what to expect from her. I’m already taking a look at her books to see what I am going to add to my TBR list.

In this book Pam and Steve have both grown up in Linden Falls and have each harbored a secret crush on the other. They both wind up working at the local gym and it is fun to watch them trying to remain friends. They have a chemistry that everyone can see except Pam and Steve. They both have clients that attempt to bring them together. This is a fun story while we watch them stumbling around each other. Do they get together? Do they call it quits and move on? I’m not telling!

I haven’t mentioned that I think each of these books would easily stand on its own. I think if you didn’t read them in order or only read a few of them, you would miss out on all the fun. I love getting to know all of these characters and the town itself. The tree plays and important role in all of the books. If you love clean and interesting love stories, you will fall in love with this little town and it’s inhabitants. 

Don’t forget to download the FREE prequel The Wishing Tree. You will get to read the first chapter of the first six books. That should leave you wanting to jump right into these books. I know I’m looking forward to the last six books. I don’t have a clue yet what they are about.

SYNOPSIS: Wishes in branches tied with string. Someone’s hopes. Another’s dreams.

Pam Olson and Steve Turner—childhood friends turned work colleagues—are perfect for each other. They just can’t see it.

The personal trainers, who both work at the local gym, have a lot in common: a passion for fitness, messy divorces and chemistry that neither will acknowledge. After a disastrous foray into online dating, Pam joins Steve in his no-dating pledge.

A happily married couple whom they train recognizes the attraction between the two and enlists the help of the Wishing Tree. The covert love mission comes to a head with a pledge-breaking blind date on Valentine’s Day. Will tempers—or sparks—fly between Pam and Steve?

Join Barbara Hinske as she brings the latest book in The Wishing Tree series alive, featuring a heartwarming story of love, family, friendships, and the hope of new beginnings.
