Overview

(An Ebook original short novel of 40,000 words)

Introducing the Wish Series From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Barbara Freethy. A SECRET WISH is the first book in a series of stories revolving around wishes that will be released in 2012.

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.

** Other books in the WISH SERIES include full length novels: JUST A WISH AWAY (#2) and WHEN WISHES COLLIDE (#3). Each book is a standalone novel, but the stories are connected by the theme of wishes.

** If you enjoyed the WISH SERIES, you may also want to check out my new connected family series, THE CALLAWAYS. There will be 8 books in the series and the first three books are currently available: ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS (#1), SO THIS IS LOVE (#2) and FALLING FOR A STRANGER (#3). BETWEEN NOW AND FOREVER (#4) will be out October 24, 2013.

    Wonderful story

    Another emotional and well written story from a very talented author. I've read a half dozen of her books in the last few months and enjoyed every fun. I liked all three of the female characters and their compelling stories. Liz was probably my favorite. Each of the women is turning a different age on the same day and I thought their feelings and worries about their particular ages to be really true to life. There's some romance, too, which I really liked!

    Excellent!

    What a unique and wonderful story. I love this author's writing and this book was very well done. There are three storylines that intertwine and connect and each woman has such a powerful and emotional story to tell. I was completely captivated from the first page!

    Time to start wishing

    Somehow with each character I started to reflect on my life at each age. I wish the book was longer or that the next book in the series builds upon at least one of the original characters. For now, here's wishing for a quick release.

    Good, but not fulfilling

    I really enjoy Barbara's books. I've gotten every one of them. This one is good, but it could have been SO much better. Each character's story was great, but she cut each story way too short and it leaves you saying..."What? That's it?" Didn't do the stories justice....
