I know I only paid $2.99 for this book, but I was very disappointed in the length. I enjoyed her writing and the characters. The character development was shallow. I hope this short story grows up one day and becomes a real novel. The actual 'book' is less than 70% of the contents. I finished reading the story and there was still 30% of the book left to read. It was all samples of other books; a marketing trick. With amazon, you can download samples and this is a good feature. Why do they need to fill up a book with so many samples....why, of course, to fill up the pages. I will be very careful in the future when a download a book.

I feel like so many women have experienced something like what the women in this story go through, I see myself and my friends in these pages. It's a really heartwarming story about how you can find what you're looking for when you least expect it, sometimes when you're even close to giving up hope. I'm going to tell my friends in my yoga group to read it. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a story with romance and real emotion.

We all have milestones in our lives. They define where we are in life and they remind us of what we hope to accomplish, what we wish for in the future. A SECRET WISH is the perfect blend of these elements. The ties between the characters are at once subtle and profound. I know and understand these women and their challenges. I care about them and I was immediately engaged in each of their emotional and rewarding stories. I'm so glad that this is going to be a series. Can't wait for the next one!

This was a very enjoyable book, even though I thought I knew how things would turn out (and I was right) the journeys each woman traveled to get there were compelling. The character development made me care about the women and their experiences, well done.

I like all of Barbara Freethy's books. I like them because they have a lot of mystery to them and not all mushy romance. I have read all she has published so far.

I have not ever been disappointed by a Barbara Freethy Book - and no exception here!
I saw a review complain about the length - this is not a novella or a novel - the description says: (An Ebook original short novel of 40,000 words - approximately 180 pages)

Love the characters love the premise - LOVE the escape!

I always find Barbara Freethy books to be interesting and a nice read. I return to her often and am never disappointed by her characters and story lines. I would absolutely recommend this and any of her other books! Downloading her books from Amazon is so easy and quick!
