If I could make a wish come true, by dropping a penny in a real wishing well, I’d wish everyone would go into this story blind! The Wishing Well is an extraordinarily well written, suspense filled story that had me on gripping my E-reader to the point I was afraid it was going to crack. If you love books that make you have visceral and/or emotional feelings, then you don’t want to miss this story! With a huge “ohnoshedidn’t” moment, this story has more twisty turns than the famous Lombard Street! And make no mistake about it; this is a romance, definitely not the usual hearts-and-flower most readers lean towards, but the kind you won’t soon forget. “Once upon a time, there was a dirty girl on the streets and the man who would make her his…” Meadow Graham’s twin sister, Penny, was murdered by Vincent Mercier, a young and successful hotelier; she was one of four victims killed at his pride and joy, the Wishing Well Hotel. He has seventy-two hours to live, before being administered a lethal injection, and he’s decided to grant Meadow the only interview he’s ever given. While some find it very morbid that she’s willing to talk to her sister’s killer, Meadow is anxious to know why he murdered Penny and she has a secret she’s willing to reveal to make sure he talks. Vincent isn’t going to make it easy for Meadow, he’s always loved playing games and taunting people, and he has nothing to lose. As he tells her: “Not only that, but you are my last victim, the woman who will forever mourn the last life I took.” And to think, it all started with a bet. Penelope Graham never had a chance; not with the dangerous games Vincent and his friend/business acquaintance, Barron, took perverse pleasure in playing. When he found the young nineteen year old she was living on the streets, too ashamed to call her mother and sister for help. He considered himself a master manipulator and it wasn’t long before Penny was another of his victims, unable to escape, after getting tangled in his web of deceit. “It just seems like…” “Seems like what?” “Like you’re judging me… Like I’m worthless to a man like you… Like I’m some stupid mouse caught in a maze you built with a deck of cards…” Why does Vincent agree to speak to Meadow, is it to play one last cruel game? Or does he want to atone for his sins? He makes it clear from the get go that this is a game of Quid Pro Quo. And Meadow’s all in, since she has an Ace up her sleeve. Or does she? This psychological thriller has layer after layer of secrets that you have to wait patiently to be peeled slowly, one by one, to reveal the next big surprise. “Life has no meaning without death. And although Penelope lived a short one, she burned bright. Not many people can claim that. She was like fire, that one.” “And you were the water that doused her.” I can't say anything else, I really don't want to spoil the surprise. Just know this...you're going to be amazed!

Lily White at her best! This psychological thriller was so full of twists and turns, I never wanted to put it down. Somehow, she made me fall in love with all(well most) of the characters, even the "bad" ones.

I am speechless! Lily White shouldn't shock me anymore but then it wouldn't be Lily White book. My mind has been officially blown away. I was up till 1;30 in the morning reading this story of Vincent & Meadow because I could not put it down till I was finished. I had to know. Get ready to be delivered a ride filled with tons of suspense, shockers and OMG moments that will leave you gasping for your next breathe. Excellent characters, amazing plot & an ending that left me in a delicious book hangover. Loved it all.

OMG Lily White is a freaking genius! This book had me hooked right from the very first page. Vincent is a Manipulation God, he cast a spell on me and is still holding me captive. There were some twists that blew my mind...in a good way ;) How would you feel if you had the opportunity to interview the man who is on death row for killing your sister and a few others? Would you feel compassion for such a person? Would you even do the interview? I honestly don''t know what I would do but Meadow needs to sit down with Vincent and hear his side of the story and I will admit that at one point I had tears flowing uncontrollably down my face and had to put the book down to regroup. This is going to be a rather short review because I do not want to give anything away, that being said I will leave you with one more nugget of advice.....be prepared for Vincent to manipulate his way into your heart. If you enjoy dark reads I highly recommend this book, and if you haven't read a Lily White book before be prepared because you are in for a treat! **I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book**

Oh my gosh!!! Lily White slays me! She absolutely SLAYS me!!! She hooked me from the first word and continued to pull me into a dark, dangerous and twisty world, chewing me up and then spitting me out where I didn’t know what the heck I had just lived through. This book freaking twisted me in every direction making me constantly try to peek around corners to see what was going to happen next and never giving me what I was expecting but slamming me with more twists until I’m now left in a soggy mess of tears. I can’t even express what an incredible read this is! Don’t read summary reviews! Go into this totally blind. Yes, you may think at times you know what’s going to happen but there is no certainty for it will be just supposition. Each portion gives a little then takes it away until your gasping to just get to the last page to learn how this all ends. This is not a perfect little fairy tale with all its traipsing’s. This is hard edged and cruel. It’s a story of unconscionable actions that lead to pain and anger and death. You will find yourself not wanting to blink in case you miss a moment, a word, a touch. When you turn the final page, you’ll be yearning to go back to page one to begin the tale all over again. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
