Product Description

From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Barbara Freethy, comes the first book in the WISH Series!

A SECRET WISH

Three women, three birthdays and one unforgettable night that will change their lives forever.

One night in San Francisco, three women make a birthday wish believing it can't possibly come true. Liz is turning thirty. A successful nurse, she has a good career, but no man to share her life. All her friends are married, and she's alone, still trying to outrun a tragedy from her past. Then she meets a handsome stranger.

Angela, a member of a large, loving Italian family, is facing thirty-five with no baby in the nursery. Eight years of infertility treatments have put a strain on her marriage. Will she have to choose between her husband and having a child? When she is mugged by an unexpected assailant, her life takes a new turn.

Carole, a corporate wife, is staring down forty candles. Having grown up poor, she worked hard to get ahead, but when her kids bail on her birthday, and she discovers her husband with another woman, she realizes that she may have nothing at all. She goes back to where it all began, the mother she left behind, and the man whose heart she once broke.

Three women, three birthdays and a night of events that connects them in unexpected ways ...

Good read. Too short. Ended too abruptly. Wish the book would have gone on one more year to complete the stories

Completion. I think I saw this story as a Hallmark Movie and if I didn't it definitely reminded me of one. The stories were endearing and intertwined effortlessly. As fate would have it a mark of a new year brought about reflection. Whether it was to rebuild family for Carly, or to not give up on faith for Angela or to not give up on love for Liz. The story was heart felt and a journey worth taking for all.
