As You Wish (The Summerhouse #3) Reviews
Very excited to have won this book it was exactly as I had hoped heavy on the romance with as bit of fantasy. Basically a nice fun read!
This was different from other Jude Deveraux novels I've read; not necessarily a romance (though of course there are elements) but maybe a combination of that along with chick lit.
This is the story of three women who are brought together by a therapist to help each other as they deal with the marriages they are now in. It starts out as any other chick lit novel might; but then it delves into the paranormal genre as well.
I found the book easy to read, and hard to put down because I wanted ...more

First off, through the years I have read many Jude Devereaux books. And I have to admit it has been several years since I read one. This one was an ARC I won through a Goodreads giveaway.
Frankly, I had to work to make myself finish this book. Cardboard stereotypical characters that I didn't care about, stilted dialogue and great chunks of information dumped into the story instead of being woven in. And a premise that wasn't believable to be honest. I know this author can do better.
Three women who are unhappy with their lives, especially their husbands, are able to with magic return to where they feel their lives went off track and now regret. They discover it is not just their spouses fault for how they ended up.
Loved it. Nic gave it to me for my birthday, because he knows I love this time-travel-relive-your-life type of story. It started out as a 3 for me, but it finished as a solid 5 stars. I really got into it, and stayed up way too late for two nights in a row. I liked the characters, and the premise of going back in time intrigues me. If you like that sort of thing, I recommend this book. I liked the writing style, very easy to read, and I will look for more by this author.
Summer House and Return to Summerhouse are two of my favorite novels and the plot lines are really my favorite.....love the ability to go back in time for "redos!" This one fell a little bit flat for me. I didn't connect with the characters as much and found Elise a bit simple minded....seriously, the black stallion? It vacillated between a good novel and a cheap romance. However, because this is my favorite type of plot line, I did love the last 1/4 of the book and hope she writes another one!
