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.

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.

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!

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!

This story was pretty good for a freebie from Amazon. You never really know what you are going to get when you are dealing with a free book but I was pretty impressed with the book. The story is told from the viewpoint of 3 different women who are celebrating their birthdays on the same day. Each of them make a wish on their birthday cake and with that wish they make life changing descisions.

Carole realizes that she has lost who she was and needs to reclaim who she really is beneath all of the veneer. She wished when she was a child to be free of the poverty that she grew up in and have all the money for herself and her children to have a better life. Well she got her wish but lost herself along the way. She devoted herself to her husband 150 percent and ended up ignoring her kids when they were growing up. So now, on her 40th birthday, her teenagers leave before she cuts the cake and she is surrounded by people she doesn't know; they are all associates of her husband's. Not to mention, she finds her husband in a compromising positions, at her own party, with a much younger woman. She leaves the party, ending up at her mother's house, who she hasn't spoken to in a decade, to make amends and along the way runs into her old flame, Alex, who definitley reminds her of the girl she used to be. After her birthday night, she vows to make changes. She will be closer to her children and mother and force her husband to spend more time wih her and give up his mistress.

Angela doesn't want a birthday party, she wants a baby. Growing up in a large Italian Catholic family she never expected it to be a problem but she and her husband, Colin, have tried in-vitro 3 times and failed. Her husband can't stand seeing her hurt anymore and is ready to give up.

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.
