Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Barbara Freethy comes an emotional and compelling story of love and family. A Secret Wish is Book 1 in the Wish Series.

One night in San Francisco, three women make a birthday wish believing it can't possibly come true. Liz is turning 30. A successful nurse, she has a good career, but no man to share her life. All her friends are married, and she's alone, still trying to outrun a tragedy from her past. Then she meets a handsome stranger.

Angela, a member of a large, loving Italian family, is facing 35 with no baby in the nursery. Eight years of infertility treatments have put a strain on her marriage. Will she have to choose between her husband and having a child?

When she is mugged by an unexpected assailant, her life takes a new turn. Carole, a corporate wife, is staring down 40 candles. Having grown up poor, she worked hard to get ahead, but when her kids bail on her birthday, and she discovers her husband with another woman, she realizes that she may have nothing at all. She goes back to where it all began, the mother she left behind, and the man whose heart she once broke. Three women, three birthdays, and an unforgettable night that will change their lives forever.

Too simplistic and cliché

I didn't like the dialogue or the narrator. Too simplistic, cliche and predictable. The narrator didn't have much to work with but the narration was unimaginative and stilted.
