Book Review: A Secret Wish

Title: A Secret Wish
Author: Barbara Freethy   http://www.barbarafreethy.com/

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

I absolutely loved this book!!  As a woman who just turned the big 3-0, I really connected to all main characters, who are all turning a milestone birthday on the same day.  

Liz is turning thirty. She is a nurse but is lacking in the love department.  She is not a risk taker and because of that keeps settling for jerky, "safe" boyfriends.  Will she ever have that crazy, amazing love?

Angela is turning 35 and wants a baby.  But after failed attempts at in-vetro, will she have to give up her dream of being a mom?

Carole is turning 40 and realizes that even though she appears to have it all she is deeply unhappy.  She is a wife to a politician, has tons of money, and two kids.  But her life is lacking so she she goes back to her roots to find out how she got so lost.

All 3 women, separately, decide to make a crazy, unrealistic wish.  They rest of the book is the journey these women go on and how they all manage to get their wish.

This is a great short novel, to remind us all that if we are unhappy, we are the only ones who can change it.  We must not be content to watch our life go by, we need to be living it.  This book c ame out in Jan 2012 and book 2 in the wish series is called Just a Wish Away and comes out this spring.
