I loved this hero. He took a lot more responsibility for his marriage failure than I thought he deserved. No one held a gun to his ex-wife's head and made her take pills, or kidnap his child and go on the run with her, or leave her on the streets of San Francisco while she was out doing god's knows what. I was beyond delighted when he put her in jail!
The heroine has had a traumatic event in her life. They meet at a wishing fountain and even tho they do not believe in wishes coming true they decide to toss a coin in and make a wish anyway. I was afraid this was going to turn into one of those fairy tales where the good fairy grants the wish, etc. But it was not that at all. Two very troubled people meet and help each other to see their way to moving on with their lives. It was great how one's advice to the other came back to haunt them in dealing with their own issues. I LOVED this story. Great book and very entertaining read. I highly recommend it.
On a regular afternoon, two strangers meet while making a wish at a fountain. When their wishes collide both realize that there is a reason they were brought together. When one realizes that his missing daughter is the reason, he stops at nothing to get her to help him find his daughter. He believes and knows that she is what he’s needed all along. And while the two search for his missing daughter both come to realize that maybe there’s more reason behind the collision of their wishes. A friendship quickly turns into so much more as they both search for the missing daughter.
Growing up with a difficult childhood after her mother’s death Adrianna has always taken care of herself. Now a chef, nothing has changed. Until the night that takes away someone close to her and leaves her with a crippling fear of life. When she meets Wyatt she finds her true self during her friendship with him.
Wyatt has been secluded since losing his daughter to her vengeful mother. He has given up on life and everyone around him seems to pity him. He spends his day and nights trying to find clues to lead him to his daughter with no avail. When Adrianna gives him his first shred of hope he stops at nothing to follow the clues. And though he seems to be only focused on his daughter he can’t help the emotions that fill him when Adrianna is around. While she gives him hope he gives her the one thing she needs: the will to live her life.
Although minimal, there was romance. Both characters find a solace in each other that they never experienced. But first and foremost the story centered on the search for Stephanie, Wyatt’s daughter. They both refused to let desire get in the way of what they needed to do. So while there was romance they fault against it so much that it frustrated the reader and makes it seem like its forced. In end it is wrapped up so fast that you really don't feel like it was love between them.
So all in all When Wishes Collide was a sweet and interesting read. I would have wished to have more of a connection grow between the characters but what we did see was sweet. If you are in need of a quick and light read I would say give this a try.
I'm writing this review a couple months after finishing the book and I can't remember all of the details. The writing was good, the story interesting enough, but not one of my favorites.
