Poignant emotion, compelling mystery, and great romance...I read this book in a big gulp and enjoyed every minute. Wyatt has never given up his search for his missing daughter and he thinks he might have a new lead in chef Adrianna. As they look for the little girl they grow closer, despite their very guarded hearts. Loved the San Francisco setting, loved the hero and heroine who are both struggling with pasts that hurt them. Fab story!

Format: Kindle Edition
The "bones" of this book -- its plot -- are good. The story builds reasonably well on a premise that holds tremendous potential for dramatic development. The writing, however, disappoints.

Freehy writes in workmanlike fashion, but there's no artistry to it. "When Wishes Collide" takes place in San Francisco, one of the most picturesque cities on the planet, yet there is virtually no sense of atmosphere or place. Characterization is thin, particularly for Wyatt, the male lead, and much of the dialogue has a distinctly unnatural quality. The characters often behave in ways that feel contrived and artificial. Overall, everything feels "dumbed down" to a 6th-grade reading level -- which might not be an accident.

Also annoying to me is the way the forward momentum of the book is arrested every few pages so that one protagonist or the other can examine his or her own feelings. I know introspection is a good thing, but -- sheesh! -- a little goes a long way. In my view these passages add nothing to the story. Most of them could be shortened considerably or eliminated altogether -- but then the book would be 20% thinner.

Perhaps the real problem is that "When Wishes Collide" is a hybrid of the romance and mystery genres. Freehy is clearly more comfortable dealing with the romantic aspects of the story; when it comes to the mystery, she seems somewhat out of her element. Unfortunately, that part of the story -- dealing with whether or not Wyatt will find his kidnapped daughter -- requires more realism and detail than is in evidence here.

Barbara Freethy's Wish series is one that I truly enjoyed, the books are fast moving, with plenty of story line so the reading is rapid. I read this book in a day, simply because I wanted to see what would happen next. I came across Barbara by chance, and I am so very glad that I did.. I have read nearly everything she has written. If you are looking for a book that really takes you into it, give Barbara a try. There are a number of series books and some stand alones. Thanks Barbara for a really great trip on Sunday!

Started reading and couldn't put it down. The characters had a lot of depth and
I just had to know what would happen next. Not your average read . Real people with less then fairy tale lives. Had never read this author before last week but have now read four of her books. Each has been different. She is not a cookie cutter author.

I had read Barbara Freethy before, and liked her so much I've re read some of the books I bought, but this was a total disappointment. The chemistry between the characters seemed unreal, even forced, there was no passion....the ending (which I wont give away) was very rushed and just too predictable. I would not recommend you buying this book.

Freethy really misses the mark with this book. The main male character is difficult to like even though he plays the victim of a kidnap. As the owner of 25 other Freethy books, I feel I can recommend you give this one a miss. A great author but this book does not rate compared to her usual very enjoyable efforts.

A cop and a chef making a wish in a fountain at the same time. Cute story with the happy endings I love.
Warning there is premarital sex but very tame with no real details and no vulgarity.

I love Barbara Freethy's novels. They are, in my mind,
about real people with real issues and problems. You
will love it!
