    I really like Barbara Delinsky s writing However, I was disapointed with the outcome of this book NOT just because it had a sad ending, but because she had the opportunity to show that love could overcome even the worst of circumstances The three wishes were given to Bree as a gift oftime since her life had been tragically taken from her I think the story wo...

    It was the most emotional book I have ever read Was so different from your happily ever after romance novels A very unexpected ending I am glad I read it, but wouldn t read it again, because I know the ending If you like heavy emotional other than the just sex and romance, read this One of her best

    It s hard to explain why I only gave this book one star without giving away some of the major parts of the story The book is well written but I was very un satisfied by the end of it and finished it thinking WHAT

    This was the most predictable book I ve read in ages I knew by the fourth chapter exactly how it would end and I was completely accurate I only picked this up because I read While My Sister Sleeps, and liked it But, I don t think I ll readof this author.

  5. Judy Churchill says:

    I was ready to write this book off as sheer fluff, but persisted for a while longer It captured me fiercely and I cried my eyes out the last two chapters It is touching, tender and is filled with redemption It is heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time Read it.

  6. Aretha Renia says:

    I loved this book because it is so romantic and moving It has a story line that keeps you reading, and when that third wish was granted my heart ached This is truly a tale of giving everything for love.

  9. Wes says:

    I can t properly say how bad this book is The female lead is a waitress in a small New England town who has done nothing with her life and plans to spend the rest of her life there as a waitress, with no family and no romantic prospects.The male lead is a world famous author and lawyer Tall, handsome, wealthy, but ashamed of a past that makes it possible for Tom and Bree to get together how else would a man of this caliber fall for a waitress approaching middle age tucked awa...
