Product description

Product Description

“I was always told never to wish on the first star at night. If everyone wishes on one star, how will the star keep up? A star with too many wishes will just fall out of the sky. Rain drops are plentiful, and there are thousands. They wash away the filth and carry it to a better place. So when you make a wish, wish on the water and let it carry your problems away.”

Candice-Leigh Carson, a New York City best-selling author, was engaged to one of NYPD's finest. She was living the dream until she lost her fiancé, quit her job and moved, leaving behind the only family she ever knew. She left her best friend Jaxson, without saying goodbye. In her quest to find herself, would she ever find love again?
Jaxson Monroe, one of NYPD's finest, lost his partner when an undercover job went south. After spending a night with his partner's lover, Candice, she flees into the night. He loved Candice and had promised his partner he would protect her. It was his fault she ran, but he quickly found himself in the arms of another. Would Jaxson ever convince Candice to come home or did he prefer another woman? Would their love survive his betrayal and her abandonment?

Format: Paperback
This is the first book in the (Water Series) by Elizabeth York ,and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the awesome story. Ms York has given us a story that will grab our attention and will hold us there from start to finish ,and then will leave us wanting more from this author. The way that Ms York has described Candice's grief was like riding a crowded roller coaster, the raw and the heartbreaking details and all the emotions just totally take us the readers into the mind and heart of sweet Candice . As I'm reading my heartaches with the pain she was going through,but her strength and her courage she showed was amazing .Candice is really a sweet woman that has suffered traumatic loss right off.But dealing with the shock ,grief , and sadness ,she learns on her best friend Jax to help her to over the rough times. Jax ,Chase's best friend is taking the loss hard also ,because his good friend was also his partner on the police department . The feelings between Candice and Jax was beautiful and so very special, Candice was so lucky to have such a wonderful best friend. It's so good to see how he makes her laugh ,and keeps her sane ,and it's really special just to how he keeps her emotionally alive. Candice has some curves thrown at her in this story ,that make me want to hug her and tell her everything would be okay. This amazing story is about survivor, strength ,friendship and love. I could tell you more about this touching story , but that would spoil it for you. I highly recommend that you read this story, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Cliffhanging, Tearjerking, Wishing-on-Watery Stars! July 13 2015
By Amelyn Randall ~ Double-Edged Words Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
God, I hate cliffhangers, but that doesn't stop me from adoring this book! I finished it hours ago, and I can't stop thinking about it, especially the ending (NO PEEKING!). I totally want to SLAP or even SPANK the guy with the last word. Grrrrrrrr! There's nothing like getting choked by the words on the first page, but the last page too? Wow. Elizabeth York knows how to grab you by the throat and make you PAY ATTENTION. She RIPS the tears from your eyes and makes you feel. You better like crying if you're going to read this.

I have never heard of wishing on water instead of stars. I wish I had known when my children were small, because it's such a lovely idea.

"I was always told never to wish on the first star at night. If everyone wishes on one star, how will the star keep up? A star with too many wishes will just fall out of the sky. Rain drops [sic] are plentiful, and there are thousands. They wash away the filth and carry it to a better place. So when you make a wish, wish on the water and let it carry your problems away."

The very best thing I can say about this book is that, after 51%, I made no more highlights, and I stopped making notes where I found myself crying. I had already made four such notes, the last one being, "SOBBING! GOD!" Yeah, I cried a LOT more, I'm sure, but I was also so sucked in to the story that I didn't think to highlight one thing or make any notes for my book review, as I usually do. Like I said: by the throat. Elizabeth York knows how to use her words.

Lastly, you might wonder why this isn't five stars for me. I'm sad to say my former-secretary self proofreads as she goes and I stumbled on just too many editing problems. This book would outright shine with better editing. For example, I's (Sally and I's attitude was positive) is not a thing. There's a pronoun for that: my. There weren't so many to wreck the story entirely, but they surely jarred me straight out of the book each time.

Overall, I highly recommend this book, and look forward to the second one (in hopes HE will get that SLAP from somebody). ;)
5.0 out of 5 stars I immediately bought Book #2 (Water Wishes), when I was done after one sitting! Aug. 31 2016

​This book review is for Wishing on the Water (Water Series Book 1) by Elizabeth York. Kindle Edition

Sad and depressed, not wanting to deal with anything, I decided it was time to finally read this book... I immediately bought Book #2 (Water Wishes), when I was done after one sitting! Here's why this story deserves five stars.

Plot: I failed to see any plot holes or ideas that didn't seem probable. The story was deeper and far more emotionally charged than I should have read in my moody funk. Or maybe it's just what I needed? An (almost) real-life, heartbreaking story, of love lost/love found/love lost again, and all the funny surprises that fall into our lives like rain droplets.

Characters: I'll really just focus on M.C. Candice. I cried for her. I hated her. I thought she was weak and she made me mad. But she was broken. Her heart ached beyond repair, and to make it worse, her brain stopped listening to her heart long ago. Over analyzing, over thinking, overreacting – ruining something so good, self-destruction – yeah, who hasn't been there?

The Writing: I read it, and book number two in an afternoon/evening. It flowed exceptionally well, with no impeding errors/mistakes… The story is told in the first person POV of M.C. Candice/Candy's perspective, which turns up the emotional turmoil by like 1000%. It's hard to read through tears sometimes...

In Case You Wanted to Know: The ending just pissed me off… Thank goodness there was Book #2 ready and available. I probably would've dropped this to a four-star, if I had to accept the ending, as is. It was not a bad ending by any means, no – it was just, “How much heartache can one person suffer?” Also, I was not expecting super-heated, yummy sex scenes. What a delightfully delicious surprise!!

Overall: Every person has a story. Anyone that has ever lost (via death) “The love of their life,” has experienced a heartache no breakup could ever come close to in terms of emotional breakdown. The denial, the anger, the sheer madness before a (hopeful) recovery… The raw emotions of this roller coaster of a story were conveyed beautifully. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Great job, Elizabeth York!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wishes are made to be broken and happy Jan. 3 2016
By Dina Dylik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Bet?! why oh why. Thankfully I was able to get an ARC of book 2 so I was able to curl up and read this back to back. So glad I was waited to read this book or I think I really would have thrown my kindle. I was excited to see that characters in this series are crossed over to her other series. This book has so much emotions, suspense and twist that it will have wishing on the water for this to turn out the way you are hoping.
Candy, Jax, and Chase grew up as BFF and we learn the story behind how the relationships they have. Love is sometimes right in front of you and when you are comfortable in one relationship, it is the other one that makes more sense. At first I was torn on how this should go, but I feel that Candy and Jax are the best fit. While heartbreaking and wishes are sometimes answered this was one of the best reads I read this year. So glad I found this author cause both her series are must reads. Can't wait to read her upcoming books!!
