This was a great book where you find yourself laughing at some of the characters’ antics. Jo, Riley, and Noel were three friends who went to the mall to see Santa. Although now grown, they all remembered their annual visit to Santa when they were small and decided to recreate this annual pilgrimage and to ask Santa for what they truly wanted. As the days sped closer to Christmas, each was surprised to find their wish coming true. Maybe there was a real Santa after all.

When a couple of sisters, accompanied by a childhood friend, visit the mall Santa for old time's sake (and to help Riley forget about being dumped just weeks before the wedding), it turns out to be a heartwarming adventure for all three. This feel good story will take the place of any Hallmark movie, with Riley, Jo and Noel's stories all taking turns throughout. Fans of Debbie Macomber and similar authors will want to add Roberts holiday stories to their list every Christmas.

Once again I fell in love with Sheila Roberts Christmas story. A story so full of emotion, you will be laughing and crying with these two sisters and their BFF. On a whim they visit Santa at the local mall and ask for help with finding the perfect man for each of them. Do Christmas wishes really come true? I'm thinking another Hallmark Christmas movie. I highly recommend this book this Christmas season!!

Three women trying to solve their relationship issues, to find their happily-ever-after and make the most of their lives resort to a Christmas wishes for a Santa Claus at the mall, and then oddly, eerily, the wishes start to come true. I have thought about this story for a few days now, trying to decide if I liked it or not, it falls so perfectly into the middle that I can't dip the scale to either way. I liked the characters well enough. Jo, Noel, and Riley are all struggling with their relationship status from the different angle. Jo is a Navy wife who gives a birth to a baby and struggles with the long times of separation from her husband while he is serving overseas. The troubles, and blessings, that the military families have is weighted heavily. Jo's mind is muddled with the baby hormones, and from missing her husband's support. She doesn't save the words and ultimatums, as they struggle with the issue of her husband re-enlisting. Noel just wants to own the house she lives in, to achieve that, she goes into an elaborate scheme to accomplish it. But the man she is trying to butter up not only has a dragon of a mom but is jilted from a previous relationship. The obsession with the house goes a little overboard with Noel, and that's what her story mostly focus on, not the fact that she nearly destroys any chances of a relationship she can have with her dream man while trying to con the house from him. Her sporadic inner-thoughts with her book character were kooky. Riley's story was the most likable to me in the book, yet it lacked the most believability. If the timespan where she completely got over of her engagement, celebrated and embraced the 'near-escape' of a marriage and found a new man would have been longer than three weeks, it would have worked for me, even three months would have been better. But maybe she really didn't love her first fiance at all, being able to leave it all behind in a blink of an eye but even in that scenario three weeks isn't enough time. Considering she doesn't even meet Jack until way after the midpoint of the book, there isn't much development of the relationship. Then you add on a Santa Claus who starts to grant your wishes to you, and I realized that maybe I should approach the story from a fairy tale point of view, even more than normally. Then looking from that angle there's all the trimmings of Christmas, the lights, decorations, family, friends, cooking, and baking, there's love, children, gifts, and snow, the spirits are high, and the Christmas miracles are plentiful, all the dreams come true, and love finds it way to a lovely happily ever after despite all. From there, you get yourself an enchanting and amusing Christmas tale for the grownups ~ Three Spoons

Sheila Roberts has become a necessity to my e-reader, bookshelf and heart. She has joined my favorites collection in such a short time that it surprised even me. Her stories are full of heartwarming goodness and laugh out loud good times. Sitting in front of the fireplace with a mug of cocoa on a cold night and escaping into a snowglobe fantasy is what I picture whenever I think of her stories. Three Christmas Wishes spotlights three strong women searching for Mr. Right in a world of Mr. Wrongs. Light, entertaining and full of charm. Empowering, enlightening and delightful.

Sheila has done it again and hit it out of the park with this book. I enjoyed the relationship between Jo, Riley and Noel. You have to feel bad for Riley when her fiance dumps her for her bridesmaid just weeks before the wedding and Christmas. Jo was also going through many emotions as her husband was deployed and she was having a baby. Then we have Noel a budding writer who is also looking for love. I loved watching Noel and Ben. I liked when the girls went to the mall for some shopping and to have their picture taken with Santa. Then Santa guesses what they want for Christmas and starts predicting what is going to happen to the girls. You must read the book to find out if want Santa predicts really happens. This is a book I could not put down and read in two days. It was the perfect distraction for me from the stress I have had this week. I have not read a bad book by Sheila yet. She has a way of making her characters seem to come alive off the page and you feel as if you are right there with them as you are reading the story. I am looking forward to her next book.

One of my Christmas wishes has been granted early this year. Sheila Roberts - author of the beloved Life in Icicle Falls series - released her newest book, just in time for the holidays. Three Christmas Wishes is bright, romantic, and full of the charming and sometimes slightly less-than-charming but realistic characters her readers can always count on for plenty of laughter and always a tear or two. While this book doesn't take place in Icicle Falls, the Pacific Northwest plays a major part, adding to the richness of the story and the settings. Sheila Roberts never fails to bring a happily-ever-after and in Three Christmas Wishes we also receive a special gift ... even "big girls" can believe in Santa! Three friends, each with a wish, decide that a visit to the mall Santa is just what's needed to boost their sagging holiday spirits. When they find Mr. and Mrs Santa Claus inexplicably with no hoards of howling kids waiting their turns on Santa's lap - Jo, Riley, and Noel share their grownup wishes with him; even perching on his knee. And what do these three ladies want for Christmas? What kind of a Christmas lies ahead? Ms Roberts takes a handsome man or three, a handful of loving friends and family, some determined women, some borrowed clothes, hot chocolate, fresh baked cookies and adds Santa, a little snow, and ... hold onto your Christmas stockings ... Three Christmas Wishes granted, coming right up!!

I got Three Christmas Wishes by Sheila Roberts in the mail a little over a week ago. I think I was reading another book and it was a very busy week and then weekend. In any case, I finished reading it this morning. I squeezed it in between work; a sewing group, which I teach; doing housework and laundry; taking the grand kid to the movies, bookstore and grocery shopping. Now that's my life, which if you haven't read a book by Ms. Roberts, then you wouldn't know that her books are exactly that, about life. In the meantime, their sprinkled with things you think but just can't say out loud. A little bit about this book. There are thee central characters, but one could be considered the main character, Riley Erickson, whose fiancé dumped her for one of her friends (who's incidentally her bridesmaid) a mere month before their Christmas wedding and over the phone, no less. She quickly realizes that he wasn't the one and thanks her lucky stars for saving her from a dismal mistake, Then there's her best friend Noel, who writes children's books and loves her rental house, which her landlady is in negotiations to sell for a song to a....horrors....flipper. Then there's Riley's sister Jo, who's pregnant and about to pop. Her husband is currently serving in the NAVY and he wants to re-up to get the signing bonus but she wants him home with his family. These three friends decide to go see Santa at the mall to ask for what they want for Christmas. He tells Riley that she's going to meet her perfect man in a memorable way. He's going to give Noel a good man to go with that house she so desperately wants. And Jo will get a new man too, but why when she already has a perfect man, she just wants him to stay home! I loved reading about these three friends. This book is a bit of a departure from Ms. Roberts's recent books, which have been set in Icicle Falls, this one is set in the town of Whispering Pines, which is also a fictional town, because it's not set in NC! Ms. Roberts will make you laugh your way through the book and may even make you shed a few tears! http://www.sheilasplace.com/three-christmas-wishes.html Publication Date: 10/18/2016 In the interest of full disclosure, I'm part of Ms. Roberts's street team and got this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

Three Christmas Wishes by Sheila Roberts....As always Sheila gives us a fabulous Christmas book. Christmas stories are magical for me, makes me feel good, smile and this one is no different. The characters are so well written and likeable you will fall in love with Riley, Jo and Noel. If you love Christmas stories you will want to read this one. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.

Every Sheila Roberts book I read brings me such utter and complete joy. She has a wonderful gift of putting words together that are fun, entertaining and hopeful to those that read them. I always hate to finish her books because I know there will be a little wait until a new one comes along. Three Christmas Wishes was no exception. Jo, a married and pregnant Navy wife, her sister Riley, who was dumped by her fiancé three weeks before the wedding, and friend Noel, who desperately wants to buy the house she's renting all visit Santa at the mall. Only he's not your typical false beard, pillow stuffed belly mall Santa. Can we say a little "Christmas Magic"? That's always fun. And Sheila does put the humor in this book and everyone she writes. So, what does he promise each of these women? Interesting..... This will put you in the Christmas spirit and have you humming Christmas songs as you read along, at least for me it did! Sheila has had two of her previous Christmas books made into movies, this one should be too! I received this book for free but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise.

Every year I look forward to reading this author's holiday book and she hasn't disappointed me yet! If you're looking for a book that has all the emotion and feels of the season, look no further, this book has it all. Riley, Jo, and Noel are all friends who just want a little happiness with a good man. Is that too much to ask?? When as a joke they visit a mall Santa he makes some predictions that could turn their lives upside down if they come true. Is it too good to believe? How seriously should they take this guy anyway?? You will want to go along on the holiday journey with these three and enjoy the ups and downs of their lives as they go on the quest for each of their HEA's. A great read and one I highly recommend to everyone.

Wishes is definitely a delight to read. Sheila's three main characters, Riley, Jo and Noel, draw you into their stories about life, love and asking the question do wishes really come true. From start to finish, I couldn't put the book down. This will be a book I bring out to read every Christmas and just maybe wishes made at Christmas time really do come true.
