A heartwarming novel about what we are prepared to give--and give up--in the name of love, from the author of Star-Crossed and The Lost Love Song.

Two boxes, both alike in size and shape . . .

Marnie Fairchild is the brains and talent behind Wish & Co., a boutique store that offers a bespoke gift-buying service to wealthy clients with complicated lives. Brian Charlesworth is Marnie's most prized customer, and today she's wrapping the perfect anniversary gift for his wife, Suzanne . . . and a birthday present for his mistress, Leona. What could possibly go wrong?

For years, Marnie's had her heart set on moving Wish & Co. to the historic shopfront once owned by her grandfather. When the chance to bid for the property unexpectedly arises, Marnie--distracted--makes an uncharacteristic mistake. Soon Brian is in a fight to rescue his marriage, and Marnie is scrabbling to keep her dreams alive. With the situation so complicated, the last thing Marnie needs is to fall for Brian and Suzanne's gorgeous son, Luke.

Booklist Review: ""It's the thought that counts"--except Marnie Fairchild's clients don't want to do the thinking. This is why they employ her gift-buying service, Wish & Co., to do the thinking for them when it comes to finding gifts for their families and other special people in their lives. Marnie is very good at what she does and is looking to expand her business into the old Fairchild building that her estranged uncle currently owns. Marnie's dream is almost within her grasp, until a gift mix-up results in her most loyal (and generous) customer cancelling her service and threatening to ruin her reputation. Willing to do whatever it takes to see her dream fulfilled, Marnie offers to right the wrongs this mix-up has caused. What Marnie doesn't count on is finding the gift of love on her road to redemption. Written with her signature wit and charm and featuring characters that will both delight and enrage readers, Darke's With Love from Wish & Co. is, at its heart, a novel about the gift of being seen."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Darke (The Lost Love Song) charms with this multigenerational love story underpinned by an exploration of the joys, challenges, and complexity of gift giving. When boutique gift shop owner Marnie Fairchild accidentally mixes up two presents she's picked out on behalf of her best client, Brian Charlesworth, for his wife and mistress, respectively, the mistake has catastrophic consequences for both Brian's family and Marnie's bottom line. Brian's adult son, Luke, is crushed to discovers that Marnie was the real genius behind his father's spot-on gifts to his family these past few years. He confronts her, accusing her of "emotional fraud" and spurring Marnie to reevaluate the ethics of selecting gifts on behalf of clients, especially when it enables infidelity. When the teenage daughter Luke never knew he had reaches out to him, however, he needs Marnie's help to make a meaningful connection, setting the two on a path to romance. But what happens when their budding relationship threatens to derail Marnie's quest to salvage her business and save Brian's marriage? Darke moves seamlessly among multiple points of view, justifying the leisurely pace with lovely prose, a meaty plot, and fleshed out characterization. Readers will have no trouble rooting for these flawed but lovable characters to learn, thrive, and find love. (Aug.)"
