Publisher's Summary

Gemma Ranford wants the job cataloging the documents of the Frazier family so much that she is ready to do battle to get it. Fascinated with history, and desperately trying to finish her dissertation, she's hoping against all hope that the papers will yield new information to invigorate her research.

What she didn't expect to find is references to the Heartwishes Stone - believed by most to be pure legend - and said to grant wishes to anyone named Frazier.

As Gemma learns more about the family - and even begins falling in love with the eldest son, Colin - it becomes increasingly clear that their wishes are actually coming true. Together, Gemma and Colin must work together to find the stone that's been missing for over 100 years - and with an international thief also on the hunt, the clock is ticking. Because in the wrong hands, no one named Frazier will ever be safe.

    "Cheesy"

    Way too Mayberry and sickly sweet. I love a book with nice characters but this is too much! I was rolling my eyes and thinking how boring. Stopped listening after 4 hours.

    "I enjoyed this audio book."

    The narrator did a wonderful job changing voices , moods and roles. The book itself was good too, I enjoyed the subject matter and the portrail of small town life.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you are going to read Heartwishes I truly think you should start at book one of the Edilean series


    What did you like best about this story?

    All your characters from previous books kinda peek in a little to the ending of this amazing town series


    Have you listened to any of Gabra Zackman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    loved it!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was already missing these townspeople before the story ended.....

    Story
    "Boring and Packed with Clichés"
    What would have made Heartwishes better?

    Half the book is about how the main character falls in love with the son of her employer. Little depth or substance in this book. And the character descriptions are cliché after cliché after cliché. So much blah, blah, blah with little else to recommend it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jude Deveraux again?

    No! One attempt was enough, I struggled to get through the first 65% but when it got to "feeling my deltoids", that did it. Forever cast aside, actually deleted.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Gabra Zackman?

    Maybe but she is certainly not the best reader. Hard for anyone to beat Davina Porter.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It might evoke a lot of fantasies in lonely women or maybe make for light reading. The fact that this book was published means some people like it. It is a woman's book.

    Story
    "Wonderful addition to a great series!"

    Starts out pretty interesting with loads of boxes and history to go through. But the selection of who’s gonna be hired would have been interesting. You go through this whole chapter where Gemma thinks she’s doing everything wrong to get hired for the job while the other party is being exactly what the family ordered. When doom time comes you’re told that the other party went kicking and fussing but it would have been nice for more details. Also too many ‘she said’ s and ‘he said’ s; would have liked the book better without that.
    You can see that there are continuations with the series. Colin is the eldest and he’s got brothers and a sister who will make up future additions to the series. Should get pretty interesting. There is hinting that they will or want to get married but nothing is definite, NR leaves that for further novels.
    The story only picks up to peak interest with the Heart Stone Wishes with only 3 hrs left, would have liked more of it.
    Way too many references of the ‘other woman’ Jean being made, about how the whole town hates Jean and loves Gemma. The book ends with shocking revelation of child molestation and nothing is mention of the ‘thief’ being charged for past molestation's but is charged for past thefts. Didn't like that.
