4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable 18 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I really enjoy the later Barbara D books, however, some of her earlier books are a bit lightweight. This is a charming tale- just right for a read on a long winters night. Lovely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three Wishes By Barbara Delinsky 13 Nov 2011
This book arrived quicker than the expected date of delivery and was in immaculate condition.
It is an easy read and a great book for those who enjoy chic lit such as the likes of celia ahern or sophie kinsella.If you are someone who cries easily I recommend a tissue or two.
I was so happy with this purchase, both for the quality of the product as per its description and speed of the seller that in future I will be looking to use the seller again.

3.0 out of 5 stars I was devastated! 19 Dec 1999
By L. Loarmays - Published on Amazon.com
This was a beautifully written and enjoyable book, until the tragic ending almost blew me away. 'Three Wishes' could have rated 5 stars in my opinion, but I was so devastated by the conclusion that I couldn't even cry, and it ruined the whole book for me! I read for entertainment and for a temporary escape from reality, and I wanted this story to have a 'happily ever after' ending. It didn't. As much as I have always enjoyed reading Barbara Delinsky, I'm quite sure I will hesitate before I buy or read another of her books.

3.0 out of 5 stars I Felt Cheated 28 Feb 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Although I've enjoyed all the Barbara Delinsky novels I have read, I truly felt cheated on this one. The story was absorbing and sweet, up until the last few chapters, at which point I was thrown through a loop, given a tragic ending that I really was not expecting. The ending was so devestating that I was angry enough where I had trouble getting through the last pages. I felt angry and cheated after reading a story that begins with hope and optimism that ends quite the opposite. So, if, like me, you read for escapism and happy endings, I would not recommend you read this book. The ending destroyed everything about the story that I loved prior to the ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bittersweet Love Story 14 May 2004
By "klpepsi" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
While walking home one evening during a raging snowstorm, waitress Bree Miller is struck by a vehicle skidding out of control on the icy road. The vehicle's driver is renowned author, Tom Gates, who has just moved to the small Vermont town to take stock of his life tainted by fame. Tom accompanies Bree to the hospital, and remains with her during her recovery there, and eventually at home. Bree has no family to speak of, and her dreams of a home, a man to love, and family, appear to be within her grasp in the form of Tom. Eventually, she confides in him of her out-of-body experience, during the time her heart had stopped after the accident. She saw a white light, full of love, which once revived; she felt this entity had given her three wishes. The only thing is, she thinks there's a possibility she may die again once her wishes are fulfilled.
This was my first book to read by this author, and so far I haven't read any of her other work. It was a very well written and compelling story, with interesting, multi-faceted characters. In fact, I could hardly put the book down, because I kept wondering how it would end. The reason I haven't read anything else by this author, as good as she is, is because it was an emotionally draining story for me, full of bittersweet moments. My reading preference leans more toward romantic comedies or sweet, romantic love stories. If you don't mind quite a bit of sadness in your romance reads, then this is probably the book for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wishing for a different plot 23 Mar 2006
By Jennifer L. Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The title and the town intreagued me, but the storyline was poor and way too much misery for an escapism novel. Think Nicholas Sparks, then take away his straight forward manner and add some purple prose and you have Three Wishes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been good story but it stumbles at the end... 7 Sep 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a story of a small town in Vermont with the usual spectrum of interesting characters. Bree is a small-town girl waiting for something out-of-the-ordinary to happen. Tom Gates is a guy from the big city who is about to be offered the opportunity to atone for past sins. Ms. Delinsky does a good job of showing us what small-town Vermont can be like. The ending, however, I found disappointing and trite and distasteful. The author doesn't seem to have much affection for these characters. I'd stick with some of her earlier works, like Fingerprints and Moment to Moment.
