I was thoroughly enchanted with As You Wish. This is a series but may be read as a standalone. If you have never read this author or series before then you are in for a treat. I quickly settled into this story. Jude Deveraux did not disappoint with this installment of the series. The three women who are looking to change one thing about their past were as different as could be but bonded together well. The men were well... what can I say, I could not stand any of these women's husbands except for Olivia's husband and that was questionable at times. The author did her job of making these men intolerable. The women in this story had great character traits and each one had a very compelling backstory which I found so interesting I could not wait for every chance that I had to listen to this book. This is an enchanting book that also gives a message of hope, love and how important it is as women to show strength and independence.
