A fun romantic tale of finding love when you would least expect it!
Zara Ruiz is a young girl that wishes for adventure, finding love, and a family. All the things she doesn’t presently have. While walking the beach, she discovers a priceless object in a tide pool. As she touches it, she is thinking of her wishes and is thrust a hundred and eighty years into the past. Here she meets a handsome rancher, Javier de la Ventura, a man with big dreams and wishes of his own. He along with his family and a vast land that is familiar to her and yet completely different from what she has known is what is in front of her with no foreseeable way to return home. Now Zara must decide if she’s discovered what she has wished for in the past, or if her heart’s three wishes can only be found in her own time.
There is the saying “be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.” Well, with this new series by Lisa Bergren, I am wishing for the next one right now. I was turned on to her writing with her Remnants series, which is one of my favorite series by far. When I saw this coming out, I decided to give it a go as well. I haven’t read any of the River of Times books that many compare this too as a possible prequel story but have to say I extremely enjoyed Three Wishes. The characters were fun and easy to connect with and not at all over the top with how they got together. I didn’t think I would enjoy the romance of the two main characters as much as I did, but it all played out well. The story was just long enough, not so long that I found it dragging like so many novels tend to do. There were a few predictable moments but nothing to take away from the story. Three Wishes was a delightful read, and I can’t wait for the next book to come out.
