As You Wish (The Summerhouse #3) Reviews
This was different from other Jude Deveraux novels I've read; not necessarily a romance (though of course there are elements) but maybe a combination of that along with chick lit.
This is the story of three women who are brought together by a therapist to help each other as they deal with the marriages they are now in. It starts out as any other chick lit novel might; but then it delves into the paranormal genre as well.
I found the book easy to read, and hard to put down because I wanted ...more
Very excited to have won this book it was exactly as I had hoped heavy on the romance with as bit of fantasy. Basically a nice fun read!
SO DISAPPOINTING! I expected this to be a book about relationships....about 3 women coming together to help each other see the reality of their relationships and to reminisce about what could have been. I thought the women would dig into each other's issues and maybe help the others to either realize that their relationships are worth more than just giving up and walking away or that it is worse than they wanted to admit. That is exactly what I was getting through more than 1/2 of this book. I w ...more
If you liked the Summer House and Return to Summer House, you will love this book. If you liked the characters from Summerhill, you are going to love this book. Jude Deveraux is so great at writing stories and creating characters that you instantly fall in love with. As You Wish is such a fun book to read, though I would recommend reading The Summer House first if you are new to these books, it is not going to leave you confused if you don't. I highly recommend that you do, and that you read all ...more
Three women who are unhappy with their lives, especially their husbands, are able to with magic return to where they feel their lives went off track and now regret. They discover it is not just their spouses fault for how they ended up.
Loved it. Nic gave it to me for my birthday, because he knows I love this time-travel-relive-your-life type of story. It started out as a 3 for me, but it finished as a solid 5 stars. I really got into it, and stayed up way too late for two nights in a row. I liked the characters, and the premise of going back in time intrigues me. If you like that sort of thing, I recommend this book. I liked the writing style, very easy to read, and I will look for more by this author.
Looked forward to this book but so disappointed. Characters were unappealing and unbelievably naive and stupid. Plot was boring and life changes for characters centered mostly on changing men. Ridiculous book,sorry I purchased. Read instead "Lilac Girls" or "The Wife Between Us," both great reads.
