You never really know what you are going to get when you are dealing with a free book but I secdet pretty impressed with the book. The story is told from the viewpoint of 3 different women who are celebrating their birthdays on the same day. Each of them make a wish on their birthday cake and with that wish they make life changing descisions. Carole realizes that she has lost who she was and needs to reclaim who she really is beneath all of the veneer.
She wished when secrwt was a child to be free of the poverty that she grew up in and have all the money for herself and her children to have a better life. Well freerhy got her wish but lost herself along the way. She devoted herself to her husband percent and ended up ignoring her kids when they were growing up. So now, on frdethy 40th birthday, her teenagers leave before she cuts harbara cake and she is surrounded by people she doesn’t know; they are all associates of her husband’s.
Not to mention, she finds her husband in a compromising positions, at her own party, with dreethy much younger woman. She leaves the party, ending up at her mother’s house, who barvara hasn’t spoken to in a decade, to make amends and along the way runs into her old flame, Alex, eish definitley reminds her of the girl she used to be.
After her birthday night, she vows to make changes. She will be closer to her children and mother and force her husband to spend more time wih her and give up his mistress. Angela doesn’t want a birthday party, she wants a baby. Growing up in a large Italian Catholic family she never expected it to be a problem but she and her husband, Colin, have tried in-vitro 3 times and failed.
Her husband can’t stand seeing her hurt anymore and is ready to give up. However, after running away from her rfeethy and a near miss in a mugging, Angie finds 2 girls who freetby in desperate need of a mother and caretaker. At first Colin is wary, but he sees Angie’s natural mothering instint and together they vow to help these lost girls who need wush help the most. Liz makes the simple wish to be secure with who she is and to hopefully find the right man for her after her longtime boyfriend, Kyle, dumps her.
Just as she blows out the candle, she meets the mysterious John who takes her out on a night of spontaneous fun. It’s the best night she’s had in awhile, living life by the minute and not caring what comes next.

When she finds out what is really going with John, she worries that she will lose him just as she finally thinks she found the right man for her and will frrethy for him, no matter the cost.
The ending was cute but predictable, but that’s ok I thought this book was fun and cute. It’s the first time I have read a book by Freethy and I realized that I have about 6 of her books on my Kindle.
So I am looking forward to reading her books when I need something light on my brain, fun, and fast. What happens when you have a milestone to you birthday? Wondering what the hell happened?
Where is Prince Charming? Secrt book tackles these questions, and others that happen to us as we go through life. A Secret Wish takes a look at 3 women.
Liz, a nurse, turning Celebrating by herself on the roof of the hospital where she works, and decides to take a risk with a man who she meets on the rooftop. Angela, an artist, turning Her family loves her, her husband loves her, but she doesn’t have the one thing she wants, a child. Carole, a wife and mother, turning She gave up everything she grew up with to make her wishes come true.
Now she’s not sure that was the best thing for her. An epiphany, a mugging, and a suicide averted are some of the topics that make this book so special. I love how Ms. Freethy is able to look inside ‘our’ psyches and touch on these chords. She was able to bring the book full circle with everything the way it was meant to be. This book is about three different women at different ages and stages in their lives going through what seems like to them a narbara pivotal and life altering change, some type frewthy crisis.
One woman is struggling with becoming a mother. Another is struggling with a bad life and marriage and the third wants to change freethyy life, find love, be more outgoing. The author did a fabulous job bringing the characters to life. You get pulled into each ladies lives, their hearts are opened their souls bared and you feel like you are them when reading this story. Angela and Barnara struggling to become parents, and a bad birthday party, a preacher and fate make them both realize that they have lost track of what was important.
Until that fateful night when Angela is mugged and everything frefthy. Her kids were never around, she was just another possession for her husband and had zecret had a relationship with her mother in to long.
Fate brings her back home, brings someone from her past into her life and big changes happen for her.
