Dylan King is the male lead of the story, and he is an interesting character. Dylan throws himself into his work because he was going through a bad breakup, and this is a way to be with his dad. Well now with his dad gone, Dylan is trying to keep the company afloat without having to sell. Dylan's aunt, one of the Knotty Elves, takes it into her hand to keep Dylan in Christmas Town while he is figuring things out. Let's say Dylan is a very stubborn character, but he does alright.
Let's meet the other stubborn character, Sadie Kent. Sadie is forever done with falling in love unless it follows a schedule, like a recipe, so that she won't break her heart all over again. Except none of that happens. We can plan, but just because we plan doesn't mean it will work. Sadie is another one of those characters that will bend over backward to help you, but when it comes to herself, she doesn't.
I think the Knotty Elves have teamed up with Sadie's young children to interfere in Sadie and Dylan's love lives.
Five Golden Wishes by Cari Lynn Webb is a must-read for the holiday season. This book is such a marvelous read that fills your heart up with joy. Everything that has gone on in here is just so magically beautiful. Five stars for Five Golden Wishes is my rating, and I am recommending it to all of the romance readers out there.
Thank you for dropping by! I hope you enjoyed this review of Five Golden Wishes by Cari Lynn Webb.
Anyways, until next time,

In this story, hunky brain-game designer turned temporary handyman Dylan is swoony and sincere, and Sadie is a genuine, warm heroine with two adorable little girls. Both Dylan and Sadie are struggling to find their Christmas spirit this year, and the Knotty Elves (a hilarious group of meddling senior citizens!) and Sadie’s daughters are trying their best to help them out. In the process, these two hurting hearts may find more than Christmas, too.
The writing is witty and warm, in turn, and Sadie’s girls are a highlight of the story. For her part, Sadie is really likable but her over-commitment during Christmas stressed me out for her. Dylan provides a refreshing distraction for Sadie – and she for him – and I really enjoyed watching their friendship blossom into something more. It took a while for me to feel connected to their romance but the last third of the book really took off for me and finished with all the heartwarming feels I look for in a holiday read.
Bottom Line: Five Golden Wishes has a hurting, hunky hero and a struggling, over-extended heroine, two sweet little girls, a meddling Aunt Odette (and her posse of geriatric co-conspirators), and a delightful Christmas Town that feels almost magical. The setting and the season fit together perfectly, and readers will want to ‘book’ another visit there soon.
(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book)
I won’t retell the story but I will say that Sadie is divorced with two little girls that are a trip and a half. She is also surrounded by friends and family who are doing everything they can to live their lives to the fullest. Dylan’s father passed away and it truly was a defining moment in his life; he really misses his dad and the closeness that they had their entire lives. Ms. Webb does a wonderful job of telling the story, far better than I can.
Here’s where the past characters come in… For me, the Knotty Elves are hilarious! Three ‘age-experienced women’, one of whom is Dylan’s aunt, meddle, meddle, meddle until people do exactly what these women want them to do. Some of their antics will crack you up, make you roll on the floor, and simultaneously call a relative that you haven’t spoken to in a while.
FGW touches all the holiday “feels” you need this season. I enjoyed the entire gang and kept cheering for Dylan and Sadie. Dylan forms a bond with Sadie’s daughters and just falls into what Sadie thinks of as perfect and neither one of ‘em saw it coming. Great, feel-good holiday story!
