    This is my first Jude Deveraux novel to read and I know now, that I will definitely be reading more!

    This was such an atmospheric, fun, and enjoyable read. The three main characters were realistic and relatable with the different situations each of them faced and it was nice to have characters crossing a span of different age ranges.

    This book really caught me off guard at some moments! The biggest twist, I definitely didn't predict happening and also the outcome from that twist, I didn't expect.

    This book really caught me off guard at some moments! The biggest twist, I definitely didn't predict happening and also the outcome from that twist, I didn't expect. About halfway through, I found myself having difficulty in putting the book down because the story became more and more anticipatory.

    This wasn't the "typical contemporary" and I really enjoyed that fact. It wasn't meaningless fluff. It was an enjoyable read that included both serious topics and also included humour. The whole concept of "What if?" was explored in a new way and it also reminded me about living in the moment.

    I cannot wait to explore more novels written by Jude Deveraux as this one has become a favourite and I know that I will be recommending this one to others.

    , by Jude Deveraux, you get so much...fiction, romance, time travel, second chances, and true to life struggles.

    Jude Deveraux, delivers an easy to read story. One of the things that got me about the writing of this book is how well the flashbacks are done. She delivered just enough to fill in the blanks and move the story along so perfectly. Then adding in the bit of time travel was just the cherry on top. An added bonus is that the if you love the

    series, you will appreciate this new addition.

    Olivia is a woman whose life did not turn out the way she thought it was going to. Living an unhappy life for so long can have its toll on a person. But now at 60 years old and a newlywed, she is over the moon on truly living the life she wanted, even though there are doubts and some conversations yet to be had.

    Kathy in her 40s is married to the man every woman wants and every man wants to be, but he is in love with someone else.

    Twenty year old, Elise, has a marriage arranged by her parents and their best friends. Her husband has a mistress that is having his baby and takes drastic measures to remove Elise from his life.

    Whether you believe in fate or not, these three women end up at the Summerhouse. These three women meet and drinks flow, what do they have to lose by opening up to complete strangers with conversations of regrets, wants and dreams. When an unexpected note is delivered the women have an opportunity to go back in time and make their dreams come true.

    I just love the Summerhouse series and this latest addition is fabulous! Three very realistic women with real problems all given a chance for a "do over." That's right. Pick a critical time period in your life to live over again and get a chance to make a different decision that will change the rest of your life. You have three weeks for your "do over." What will you choose?

    Great characters, great stories. I just loved it.

    Three woman, all facing life altering decisions, are sent to a private retreat where they share in each other’s life stories, until an unfathomable opportunity arises…they can go back in time and change decisions they made to achieve the life they’ve always wanted. What would you do if you could have the life AS YOU WISH.

    This is a slow building story that in the end had me completely hooked. If you don't like cheating the beginning of this book is going to be as hard for you as it was for me. Bu

    This is a slow building story that in the end had me completely hooked. If you don't like cheating the beginning of this book is going to be as hard for you as it was for me. But, I have to say I was utterly riveted to the three women's stories about 1/2 through. NOT AT ALL WHAT I EXPECTED BY THE SYNOPSIS!

    As You Wish finds us back in Summer Hill, Virginia, with a whole host of characters–some familiar, some new–all of whom were affected by the decisions of three women struggling in their current lives.

    I enjoy Jude Deveraux’s imaginative stories and how she brings in elements from classic books and even movies to draw a reader in. But, honestly, I feel all over the place about this book. I think it’s one that as a reader you just ha

    I enjoy Jude Deveraux’s imaginative stories and how she brings in elements from classic books and even movies to draw a reader in. But, honestly, I feel all over the place about this book. I think it’s one that as a reader you just have to let go, enjoy the ride and don’t get caught up in the minutia. I did love seeing three women of differing ages all helping each other through the issues they were facing and seeing the differences in their thoughts and what approach they would take. On the other hand, well, this almost seemed like a novel straight out of the 1980s considering the amount of cheating and manipulating going on.

Interesting idea.

    Summer House and Return to Summerhouse are two of my favorite novels and the plot lines are really my favorite.....love the ability to go back in time for "redos!" This one fell a little bit flat for me. I didn't connect with the characters as much and found Elise a bit simple minded....seriously, the black stallion? It vacillated between a good novel and a cheap romance. However, because this is my favorite type of plot line, I did love the last 1/4 of the book and hope she writes another one!

  • Beverly Turner

    First off, through the years I have read many Jude Devereaux books. And I have to admit it has been several years since I read one. This one was an ARC I won through a Goodreads giveaway.

    Frankly, I had to work to make myself finish this book. Cardboard stereotypical characters that I didn't care about, stilted dialogue and great chunks of information dumped into the story instead of being woven in. And a premise that wasn't believable to be honest. I know this author can do better.

  • LaRayne

    Looked forward to this book but so disappointed. Characters were unappealing and unbelievably naive and stupid. Plot was boring and life changes for characters centered mostly on changing men. Ridiculous book,sorry I purchased. Read instead "Lilac Girls" or "The Wife Between Us," both great reads.
