Overview

Claudia, Lindsay, Gail, Mara, and Jill are about to find out that the old adage is true—they really should be careful what they wish for. At first their book club was like any other: talking, drinking wine, and maybe even discussing the book they’ve read. But when they read a novel about witchcraft and jokingly try one of the spells . . . it works. Naturally the women are freaked out at—they’re not witches! But what could be the harm in lighting some candles and making little wishes? Everyone has wishes—the perfect man, more time to yourself, a little extra cash . . .

When their book club morphs into “Wish Club,” the ladies find their real gift is for conjuring trouble. Their wishes start going awry, and they find themselves in strange, hilarious, and in some cases even dangerous predicaments. But as they search for someone who might be able to help, each of the women begins to discover that she may have the ability to make her own wishes come true.

Fascinated by the spells, they jokingly test the incantations starting with stopping the rain to their amazement it worked. Awed they tried to cure diabetes inflicting a cat it works. Excited, the five decide to make their personal lives better with a series spells. --- Claudia asks for a baby and the writing a novel. Gail, the mother of three, wishes for some quiet time. Lindsay wishes to lose weight so that she participates in the Women¿s Foundation fashion show. Mara asks for money and for her former singing career to start over. Finally Jill wishes to be inspired by the perfect man when she paints. However when the Wish Club members begin to get their desires fulfilled they find their lives out of control. Panicking they need to find a real witch to return them from the Wish Club back to the Book Club. --- Based on the concept that sometimes you get what you wish for, this well written lighthearted amusing chick lit tale stars five likable women who learn powerful life lessons. The changing needs of the quintet make the tale fun to follow as Kim Strickland cleverly insures each of the protagonists maintain their underlying basic personality even as their desires keep modifying. Fans who enjoy a charming whimsical fantasy will wish to join the WISH CLUB whose members ultimately wish to revert back to when they were a simple book club. --- Harriet Klausner

    Just OK

    This was not one of my favorite books. I had a hard time getting into it. Maybe it was because it wasn't my type of book. Easy read but kinda dull.

    Wish Club

    This was a fun fast read! The characters were really well-developed and once the stage was set, the action just took off like a shot. I recommended it for my book club's halloween meeting--maybe we'll even try a spell!
