Wishing on Buttercups, historical romance
Can Love Survive When Secrets Collide?
She’d kept her secrets safely hidden—those from her past, and those in the present. Some things, Beth Roberts knows, a lady simply doesn’t share, even in the 1880’s West. The townspeople would never understand. No one ever has.
Jeffery Tucker, a handsome young writer, has kept his own secrets. He doesn’t have a right to pry into Beth’s affairs but finds himself strangely drawn to her and intrigued by the whiff of mystery surrounding her.
Beth knows that one day someone will unravel the threads of her past. And when two men from her past arrive, the truth might just hurt . . . Beth’s future and her heart.
As shadowy memories surface, Beth sketches the scenes she sees and is shocked by what—and who—her illustrations reveal. Dare she risk her heart again?

Wishing on Buttercups is the second book in the “Love Blossoms in Oregon” series. Blowing on Dandelions was the first and I really enjoyed the story. Beth Roberts has a past she doesn’t really know much about. Being proper would mean you keep your past to yourself for fear of people looking down on her. People would never understand what she has gone through, and she's not sure she understands herself. Beth isn’t into getting too close to people especially men. She doesn’t think she is pretty and men would not like seeing the scars she bears from a childhood accident. Beth is starting to remember things from her childhood, but so many things are missing. Will she ever find out her past and why her parents just left her? Two men from her past have shown up. Will they have the answers? Will these answers bring more hurt into her life or a hope for a future? I loved the characters in the book. I love the forgiveness and understanding they show for each other. In times of trouble they offer support. I can remember doing buttercup wish’s when I was little. I have even dried buttercups, I think I still have some. This book will keep you glued to it you & you will have to pull yourself away to get things done. I really enjoyed Wishing on Buttercups looking forward to the next in the series.
