In All My Wishes by Ciara Knight is an endearing, heart-warming (and heart-breaking) story about a childhood romance that gets a second chance. Anna Baker seemingly has it all, but having moved multiple times throughout her life, she’s missing a home. At 15, her mother and her left Riverbend in the middle of the night, running from what she doesn’t know, but she vowed to return. Liam Harrow spent his entire life in Riverbend waiting for the girl he loved once who never returned. Now she’s back and he doesn’t know anything except that she can’t leave again.
I liked Anna. She’s career-driven, nursing a broken heart, and has walls that rival Fort Knox. BUT she’s kind, loyal to those she loves, and would give anything to protect her friends. When Liam reenters her life as a part of her friend’s wedding, her first instinct is to run. However Anna is tired of running. Her whole life was running, now she wants a home and she wants it to be Riverbend. I liked how the author conveyed Anna’s trust issues along with the character’s growth through out this short novella.
Professor Liam Harrow *sigh* He is the penultimate playboy, never recovering from his childhood sweetheart. He never gives a girl more than a few dates but seeing Anna again makes him want it all – commitment, wife, family, the works! He’s kind, sweet, and will do ANYTHING for Anna. And I do mean anything!
This story revolves around the rekindling sparks between Anna and Liam, but also around Anna’s mysterious disappearance, her mother’s deep depression, and Anna’s constant running. So friends if you are expecting a straight-out, fluff piece – this isn’t it! There is definitely some romance (the ooey-gooey kind) but a lot of mystery as well. I was truly on pins and needles reading it, rooting for the characters, their romance, and for Anna to find answers.
Overall this is a sweet, quick read that I truly enjoyed. I’ve come to like Ciara Knight‘s style of writing. There is a lot of dialogue, fast-pace, and it’s clean! If you’re looking for a sweet contemporary romance, I highly recommend you get this one!
If you haven’t read any of Ciara’s previous works, please do. She is an amazing writer and this book just furthers my statement on that. Anna and Liam are both amazing characters to read about. The work really well with each other hence the reason they have always loved each other. There are twists and turns that you don’t expect to take place concerning their families, but don’t let that deter you. Anna is an independent fashionista that is extremely passionate about her work. She returns to be in her best friend’s wedding and in turn runs into Liam again due to him being in the wedding party as well. Liam is a strong college professor who most think of as the town playboy, but you find that he has an amazing heart and his love for Anna has never died. They are thrown curve balls at every turn, but they don’t let that deter them from trying to figure things out and stay together. They both finally realize that they were kept apart for reasons that in all honesty they will never know the full truth about. Thankfully between them and their friends they realize that the type of love that they have is meant to stand the test of time. Through everything Anna and Liam laugh and have fun as well as show that they are just like other couples, by showing their emotions and how the different scenarios affect them. By the end of this book you truly feel connected to the characters in the book, and I hope that in the follow ups to this book that we get to see more of not only Anna and Liam but their best friends as well. I hope that everyone else enjoys this book as much as I did.
The characters were well developed and believable. Anna is a fashion designer and personal buyer who has been wildly successful worldwide. Liam is a well-respected college professor. Neither of them ever got over their teenage first love and are thrown back together for their friends' wedding. Each one believes the other moved on and broke their promises to be together, but they soon discover that their families were deliberating lying and keeping them apart. But why?
This is my first book by Ciara Knight, and I am hooked! I have to admit that when I first started reading chapter one, the heavy description of the decor nearly kept me from reading on, but I'm so glad I did! The rest of the book was fabulous, and the plot had me riveted to the very end. I've already looked up and downloaded two more books by this author. Ciara Knight has a new fan!
