Be careful what you wish for...

This book is actually a gift from my bff for my last year belated birthday... I had taken forever to finish it because the earlier chapters in this book really bored me to death... But boy, have I been mistaken... After I passed the first 50 pages, I'm totally hooked!!! I absolutely lovin' it!!! Thanks so much, girl... ^_^

Since this is the first Melissa Hill book I read, I didn't really have a high
expectation... I'm not really adventures when it comes to buying books... I only read books from authors that I'm familiar with to avoid any frustration when it didn't met my standard, hehhhe =P But once in a while, when I get extra money, I tried getting my hands on books from other authors as well... What really intrigued me with this book is how similar it is with another book that I've read before, The Reading Group by Elizabeth Noble...
 
It is about 3 different women, Rosie, Dara and Louise dilemma and wishes they have made along the way and how backfired their wish can be... Rosie, after the death of her husband, is at lost and unable to function but little by little she finally able to move on and enjoying her independence... Her children however, never let her live in peace... Both of them are only eager to used her for their own benefit and choose to disregard her feelings... She wish she can make them happy but is it worth it if it means that it will cost her happiness in return?
Dara, mid 30's successful carrier woman that still very much in love with her long lost love, Noah despite her recent marriage to Mark... Eventhough she still hung up on her ex, Dara decide to go ahead with marrying Mark due to the constant pressure from her mother and her desire to start a family of her own... Little that she know, after all the vow and promises, her old flame will come back into her life, leaving her torn between man that she used to love desperately and another man that she beginning to love...
Louise, is not always the skinny, popular and glamorous girl... In fact, she's far cry from that... Her life full of unlucky stroke of events and made her wish for a different kind of life... After getting hit by a car, she suddenly have a new life... A life that she will never dream of... She managed to lose her weights, getting noticed for the first time, have popular friends and living like the rich and famous... But everything have it's own price... She get too caught up in her new life and slowly losing herself...
The 3 women life is interwined with each other in more than one way but one incident have forced them to finally stand up for themselves and taking control of their own destiny... Although the ending is quite predictable, I have to give the author credit for keeping the suspense going throughout the story, hehhe =P Sometimes, our wish is not really as good as it may seems... More than often, we will wish that we never wish for it in the first place... My advice, just be grateful with what we already have because the best is yet to come... Have faith, guys... ^_^
