Sometimes life’s most magical journeys bring you back to where it all began…From USA Today bestselling author Emily March comes The Christmas Wishing Tree, an enchanting account of the magic and miracle of Christmas.
A man who loves adventure and the open sea, Devin Murphy returns for a short Christmas trip to his small hometown of Eternity Springs. Immersed in the joy and magic of the holiday season all around him, he doesn’t hesitate to play along when a young boy phones Santa to ask for a very special wish. Devin never guesses that a wrong number has the potential to make everything in his life so right.
Jenna Stockton adopted Reilly when he needed a mother and she intends to keep him safe. A small town across the country called Eternity Springs seems like a good place to hide from their past without any complications —until sexy Santa himself discovers her secrets. When Devin proposes a daring plan to face down the danger together and defeat it once and for all, she is tempted. Maybe Devin really is capable of making wishes come true? Perhaps in a Christmas wish they’ll both find the miracle they’ve been looking for all along…
A delightful Christmas novel in the New York Times bestselling Eternity Springs series.

Instead of an excerpt, we’ve got a little Q&A with Emily for you instead about this book.
Q: What inspired your latest release?
A: My ideas come from lots of different places. My idea for THE CHRISTMAS WISHING TREE came when I read the true story of how the NORAD Santa Tracker came into being back in the 1950’s. It’s such a sweet story that I knew it was perfect to adapt for Eternity Springs.
Q: What are you currently working on?
A:I’m finishing up the next Eternity Springs book titled JACKSON, which is the first of a new family trilogy set inside the Eternity Springs world. We’re going to visit a new locale, Enchanted Canyon, which is deep in the heart of my home—the Hill Country of Texas. JACKSON is due out next summer.
Q: Is there a genre you haven’t written that you would like to try?
A: I’m a thriller reader, so I’d love to try my hand at one of those one day. I also have an idea for a women’s fiction novel that I want to write as soon as I can fit it into my schedule.
Q: How do you celebrate release day?
A: Ordinarily, we pop the cork on a bottle of champagne and have a nice dinner with something chocolate for dessert. This time, though, I am officially on the wagon as part of my wedding diet. My only daughter is getting married in February and I’m determined to be twenty pounds lighter. It’s my Christmas Wish. 🙂
Fly Girl’s Review:
This is a huge post for us, release, review, giveaway, Q&A. I’m sure you all have found something to spark your interest in it. But for our avid fans, I know you are just dying to hear my take on the book. This is the first Christmas book of the season for me!! I’m so excited. I love Christmas!!! I’m just bummed these come out so early. I’m worried the titles will decrease the closer we get, so I’m enjoying each and everyone as they come to me.
This one was a little different than I expected. I don’t know, I think I thought historical, but it really is a contemporary romance and honestly it doesn’t take place exclusively at Christmas. It actually takes place over several years at different times of the year. Christmas does play the starring seasonal role though. This also isn’t exclusively an adult romance. There is a child involved. It wouldn’t be Christmas if there weren’t children.
Jenna and Devin don’t even meet until way into the book, so that was another unexpected point in the story. Jenna and Devin form this relationship over the phone blind to what one another look like and that makes it so much cuter when they meet in person. There bond is much stronger this way I think. It’s like they already know one another and are ready to take it to the next level when they do meet.
Of course we get some Celeste Blessing magic involved in the whole book and of course you get your HEA even for Riley. Emily just keeps making Eternity Springs a little more refined and a lot more mysterious with each novel she brings to us. The last one I reviewed was First Kiss of Spring and I loved this little town. It has found a place in my heart and the rest of the books in the series will definitely be on my TBR pile. For all of those reasons, this is a 5 of 5 read for me. Hope you all enjoy it as well…
