An incurable romantic, I enjoy writing love stories with satisfying endings.
Please stay tuned for my next novel.

Set in Boston in the mid 1980's, the culture & music of the time comes through loud and clear, as well as the color and activity of Boston, itself (especially the Back Bay area). There are aspects of various kinds of music (mostly from the '80's), and also of vintage clothing (which I found to be really fun). I'm eagerly hoping for a sequel -- or other novels -- from this author. Note to author: I will never tire of the Englishman, or characters like him.
Perfectly edited. This author has a knack for clarity in her writing, and for keeping it interesting and exciting, yet real. The conversations were very natural, and it was always clear who was speaking. The flow was perfect! Few authors can paint characters like those in this story!
What happens when these two worlds collide? From notorious Boston rock clubs to tony Back Bay townhomes, we get the pleasure of watching the rise and fall and...?? of Victoria and Edmund's relationship.
I had so much fun reading this book. I spent my 20's in Boston's 1980's rock scene, and the author has really nailed the atmosphere of the time. If you love Boston, 80's music, or romance, you will enjoy this bon bon of a book. Ms. Byszewski has given us two true-blue characters to root for as they search for love and contentment.
Like the orange scones that Edmund favors, this book is sweet and satisfying.
Though they live in very different worlds, both Victoria and Edmund, in their own ways, are strong, self-confident characters and Carr Byszewski does a good job of fleshing them out. While not a "summer-winter" relationship, the age difference between the two is just enough to give rise to their insecurities and uncertainty about whether each finds the other a suitable partner. The love between them is unmistakable but they are both rational people who by their own admission have a tendency to over-think things, so it isn't surprising when "over-thinking" leads to a tragic misunderstanding that both despair of ever being able to overcome.
Carr Byszewski has a keen eye and ear for detail and does a good job of capturing the late `80s music scene in Boston, which she knows well, having been immersed in it herself, just as she does describing the over-the-top and often whacky vintage ensembles Victoria's boss at the store is fond of wearing. While set in the late `80s, the story has a distinctly Edwardian and at times Victorian feel to it. Anyone who enjoys romance will find Victoria's Wish an engaging read.

A sweet enough story, but not to my taste. The detailed description of every single article of clothing made it kind of dull for me.Published 7 months ago by Bethany Swafford
