Overview

Excerpt
I knew I had to leave before anyone saw me, so I
walked past the girls and back into the bar. In the corner
I saw Lydia at the piano with her boyfriend, Jed. He was
sitting next to her, they were gazing romantically at
each other, and didn’t notice me.
Candy poured flutes of champagne, and Fran
walked around with a silver platter filled with the
delicious mini crab cakes she’d made. Brett sat at
the bar chatting up one of the pretty cocktail waitresses.
And me?
I ducked behind some people and bee-lined it toward
the exit. The lights began to flicker, and the brick walls
were slick with sweat. I heard Candy laugh, and shout to
her customers that magic was in the air.
As I pushed through the door, I felt a tinkling pass
through me. It was so quick and fleeting that it might
have been nothing. I would describe the sensation like a
champagne fizz, a light airy sparkle, nothing more. I do
remember thinking how I’d like to be truly beautiful from
the inside out. Any other thought I may have had was
whisked away when I stepped outside.
Thunder rumbled in the black sky, and then a flash
of lightning came bolting down toward me. I jumped and
shrieked. The sky lit up like the Fourth of July as
electricity sparked and flashed and danced, reminding me
of rock concerts, magic mushrooms, and light shows.
Running to the car I’d half expected to get zapped,
but somehow I managed to get the door open and slide
inside. I was drenched and shaken. From my place of
safety I watched the lightning rip open the sky and
thought how incredibly beautiful it looked in all of its
menacing, malevolent glory. I’d never seen the night as
eerie before, and my fingers itched to paint it.
With a final flash of lightning came the wish—to
view the world as I was seeing it tonight—vividly, with
passion and depth, so I could be the greatest painter ever.

    WHERE WISHES COME TRUE is another Candy Bar story. To our delight, poor Susie gets herself into enough trouble to last her a life-time, yet she pulls herself and struggles to stand on her own feet. An easy read that will keep you happily entertained. Funny and cute, and yet quite emotional because of the heroine's background and motivation. I enjoyed meeting again the characters of Replacing Barnie.
