Dr Daniel Chadwick is a little ticked off to find out the grant he’d been getting for 5 years to fund his research into finding a cure for – better you read it to find out – might be given away to a group that provides blankies to sick kids. Grace Lighthorse, the woman in charge of Project Hope can’t get a medical administrator to understand how hope, and the idea of a magic blanket a sick child can hold on to, can increase the odds of a child overcoming their disease.

He’s a sexy geek, but has a purely scientific, strict work ethic and isn’t especially comfortable outside of his zone. She’s a free-spirited massage therapist who takes time to enjoy life.

Mrs Cabilla, the executor of the grant forces them to each spend time working on the others' projects in order for either of them to remain in the running for the grant. There are a ton of misunderstandings and growth for both of the main characters. The secondary characters added both a lot of humor and understanding.

This was a delightful, funny, albeit somewhat short, read. But there is enough there to tell a complete, well-rounded story.

Reading it was a wonderful escape. ( )

A story of Doctor Daniel Chadwick and Grace Lightfoot competing for a grant on the projects they both feel are important. The grant will come Mrs. Cabilla who will make the final decision.
The challenge comes when the two main characters are supposed to work together for two weeks before it is decided who will get the grant.
Grace has a different outlook on life than Dan; she is free spirited and he is reserved. Her project is Project Hope and his is a medical research project.
Dan's family has disinherited because he went into the wrong field of medicine and Grace was still angry at her father for letting stress kill him (my feelings). He was Ojibwe and his wife Irish. The Ojibwe believed in taking care of family and so he took care of his three sisters who loved in the same house as Grace. They are wonderful characters and I really see them as characters. There is also Olaf, a Norwegian, who protects Grace from "bad men".
Again, the author brings the flavor of her home state of Wisconsin. I live in Minnesota but was not raised here so I had to learn these things of Minnesota and Wisconsin. The labatory for Daniel is on a old Boy Scout Camp in Wisconsin; my sons went to Tomahawk Scout Camp in Wisconsin. There is Lake Illusion in the book and Wisconsin is full of lakes. Lutefisk is mentioned in the book and it is a cured fish eaten traditionally by Scandinavians. Mosquitos are thick when there is a lot of rain and so true. I learned in one of her book why Wisconsin is called the Badger State. I like this type of information in books; it makes the book more personal.
I think that Lori Handeland does a good job of her descriptions; the reader is almost there.
The story is about an oil and water mixture from the two main characters they get along and then don't get along. The reader wants to know what really is going to happen at the end. Some steamy kissing scenes but not bad.
A good read for the airplane or sitting outside now that (hopefully) Spring is coming. The e-book can be purchased on Smashwords.com for $1.99. The authors's site is www.lorihandeland.com.
This will also be posted on my blog: mnleona.blogspot.com and librarythimg.com
I received a complimentary copy of When You Wish to read and review. The opinions are my own.
