    The book began well with two women and a man, Olivia, Elise, and Ray, meeting at the request of Elise and Ray's therapist. They end up spending time together when Ray is called away and his wife takes his place. Up to this point the book is tooling right along but when Kathy takes Ray'...

    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.....

    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 c...

    I wasn't eager to read this as I was not that enthused about the Summerhouse series. However, this book ties into the Girl From Summer Hill much more than the original Summerhouse books, and while it was very light on the sexual content, it still had 3 great romance stories. The storyt...

    Okay that was a bit weird but I rather enjoyed it. The story of three women and their lives, regrets, loves and possibilities. It turned in a way that I didn't expect which is why I say - weird... but a little different and fun. ...

    I can sum up this story in one sentence:Three women who have bad marriages get the chance to have a do-over.But the true nature of the story is that As You Wish is aWhat If story. What If you had chosen someone different? What If you had responded differently to situations? And n...

    I spent the day trying to like this book. I love Jude Deveraux...but this was. not for me. I'm not much into ladies of any age sitting around discussing problems, and Olivia caused most of her own. The naked running in the woods with the sixty year old, and twenty year old? Really. ? I...

    Loved it. Nic gave it to me for my birthday, because he knows I love this time-travel-relive-your-life type of story. It started out as a 3 for me, but it finished as a solid 5 stars. I really got into it, and stayed up way too late for two nights in a row. I liked the characters, and ...

    I liked some parts, other parts were pretty annoying. Olivia attempting to right all the bad things that ever happened was pretty irritating, and her anger with Kit while ignoring her own culpability in the past. I also didn't think it was believable just how badly she let her previous...

    First time reading anything by this author. I picked it up on a whim at the library. I struggled with this...I enjoyed the characters and their individual stories, but I never understood the setting (maybe I should have read the first 2 summerhouse books?) and the entire concept was pr...

    Disappointing 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 B...

    This wasn't for me, which was disappointing. I loved the cover; it's beautiful. It was the best thing about this book. Although I did like the premise, I didn't like the story. The premise made this sound like the kind of book I would love, but I didn't. I didn't like the way the story...

    I have been playing catch-up with books that I read during my house renovation that I just didn't have the energy to post reviews about. When one has plaster and dust all over them you tend to just want to go to bed and put blankets over your head (at least I did). Getting my floors, w...

    Read this because the time travel aspect appealed to me. Shouldn't have bothered. That was a minor part of the book. Before I could get to the time travel aspect I had to suffer through the first half of the book and a clunky, contrived setup putting these three women of different ages...

    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...

    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 think I read this book to fast. I was so excited that I just ran right through it. I'm gonna have to reread, because I was left with questions. however it could just be a set up for future novels. I hope so, because I love the time traveling. ...

    ... What the heck happened? This is probably the worst Jude Deveraux book I've read in a long time. After re-reading A Girl From Summer Hill to prep, I was having a hard time going through this one. Blech. I couldn't connect with the characters on any level and the underlying anger the...
