Her beauty stirs him, the way she guides those in trouble back toward their dreams touches his soul. Maybe, just maybe, he’ll find in her a dream he thought he’d given up on long ago.

Can two wounded souls heal each other?

“She sold hope.” This opening line is the perfect start to this romance. Keighley is such a gentle soul. Despite the sign describing her as a fortune teller, Keighley doesn’t claim to have any power to predict the future. What Keighley offers her clients is peace, comfort, and hope. I loved watching her interact with the people in her small town. She manages to touch the hearts of everyone she meets. Her home and garden, though a bit neglected, sound as warm and inviting as Keighley. It is a place I would love to visit. However, Keighley’s life isn’t perfect. Caring for her grandfather is becoming more difficult, and she has practically put her life on hold. Everything changed the day Connor knocked on her door.

Connor is a good man, but he is in immense pain. His past is marred by a tragedy he has never truly moved beyond. Keighley is a soothing balm for Connor’s soul. She knows he has a painful past, and while she gently encourages him to talk about it, she doesn’t push too hard. Connor is supposed to be interviewing Keighley for a magazine article, but it soon becomes clear that their interviews are more like dates. I liked watching them get to know each other. Their first meeting is particularly entertaining! Their blossoming romance is sweet, but I must admit the passages where they gazed at and admired each other were a bit overdone, and I feel the pacing suffered as a result. Also, I couldn’t quite relax and enjoy their relationship as much as I would have liked because I knew Connor wasn’t being completely honest. While this added tension to the story, I knew the deceit would come to light eventually, and I dreaded Keighley’s reaction. I won’t spoil the story with details, but I will say that Keighley’s reaction to the truth was as expected, but also managed to be a bit surprising. Readers can be assured of a wonderful, happy ending.

I enjoyed reading The Fortune Teller’s Garden. Readers looking for a moving tale of love, loss, and healing should definitely give this contemporary romance a try.
