    Great read!

    If you loved the characters in "Crazy in Love" by the same author, you will love this sequel! More action, romance, and drama with a surprise ending, this was a story that I could not put down!

    Written by: Lani Diane Rich<BR/>Published by: Hachette Book Group USA<BR/>Reviewed by: Stephanie Rollins for 12/2008<BR/>ISBN: 978-0-446-61825-0<BR/>¿Breezy¿ 4 stars<BR/>Sometimes a woman must read a breezy, romantic book. This is one of those books. <BR/>Freya does not want love. Nate falls in love with her. He has a daughter, and Freya is not maternal in the conventional sense. To add to the confusion, someone is trying to kill Freya. <BR/>Can love overcome all of these obstacles? This is a read-in-a-bubble-bath book. It is a perfect guilty pleasure.

    Great Read

    Summing up Wish You Were Here, by Lani Diane Rich, in one word is endearing. Lani Diane Rich is a best-selling author, with such titles as: Crazy in Love, The Comeback Kiss, Maybe Baby, Ex and the Single Girl, and Time Off For Good Behavior. She resides in New York with her family.<BR/>Freya Daly has developed what she likes to call ¿a condition.¿ She couldn¿t quit crying. She is so very close to getting everything she wants- to take over her father¿s Boston real estate business when he retires, and now this ¿condition¿ was ruining everything, including her reputation. Her father sends her to Deer Creek, Idaho to purchase a run-down campground to prove her capability, the last hoop in a long line of trials. The problem is, Nate Brody won¿t sell. Nate promised his dying father that he wouldn¿t sell the land. Freya finds herself enchanted by Nate and his ten-year-old daughter, Piper, making her hoop even harder to jump through. As they search for a valuable heirloom, a treacherous secret from generations past is about to put them all in danger, forcing Freya to choose between her old, comfortable, boring life and the love she never dreamed imaginable.<BR/>This is my first time reading a title by this author, and I very well might pick up more. Lani Diane Rich has a candid way of laying out raw emotions and practical characters that you can relate to. She has a clever and witty sense of humor which had me laughing aloud quite a few times. The characters were realistically flawed, including the secondary ones. I particularly like the ending, where you got closure without changing who they were and altering the personalities greatly. I love a good romance that is not over-gushy and littered with cliché¿s, to which she proves immeasurably well here. The setting was richly portrayed, making you want to jump right in. You can tell that she thoroughly enjoyed writing this book.<BR/>Wish You Were Here, by Lani Diane Rich, is a humorous, charming, and satisfying read. Lani Diane Rich is emerging on the romance scene and I see great things in the future for her. Readers will delight in this light-hearted page-turner that will leave you with a smile on your face and restoration in the contemporary romance genre again. <BR/><BR/>Kelly Moran<BR/>Author and Reviewer
