Publisher's Summary

Three women of different generations gather at a house in Summer Hill, Virginia to discuss their marriages and look at how they'd do things differently if they could do it all over again.

Olivia is in her 60s and recently married her first love after 40 years apart. Her first marriage was long and unhappy and she is thrilled to finally be with the man she's always loved.

Kathy is in her 40s and is married to a handsome, successful businessman. She is a great business partner for him but he is passionately in love with a woman from his past. Kathy wants to stand on her own in business and regrets ever marrying her husband.

Elise is in her 20s and is married to the man her wealthy parents chose for her. She has tried everything to get her husband to pay attention to her but she is certain he is having an affair. When she discovers the truth - that he has a pregnant mistress - her life falls apart.

All three women share their regrets, their wishes and their dreams and find themselves with the opportunity to start again. All three discover what happens if their wishes really could come true.

I was thoroughly enchanted with As You Wish

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.

lovely story!

I loved this story that lets three women in different stages of life answer the age old question of " What if??".
The narrator is quite good, one of the best I've listened to.

my life is a busy and complicated one, I really appreciate listening to stories that are part romance, part fantasy. It's a nice respite.

Certainly not the norm..

This book is certainly different from others of Ms. Deveraux’s and, though the family lineage is familiar, took a while to wrap my head around. Though it took a chapter or two to really get involved, the story was woven nicely and felt almost complete with the detail in attention shown to the townsfolk included in the backstory of the Protagonist. Fun and kept moving for the most part. I was definitely not let down!

Another Classic.

I love these stories. I wish I could rewrite my life too. This is the 3rd book in the Summerhouse series.
