The story is about Heather Hamilton who finds all her tiny wishes coming through after buying a piece of lucky heather from a gypsy. All of a sudden there's a spare seat on the tube, there's a parking space outside her apartment and the sexy neighbour she's always fancied asks her out for a drink. But Heather soon realizes that maybe it's not so great having all your wishes come true.
I really enjoyed this book and it made me think of a book I bought for my niece called `Felicity Wishes'. It's amusing, easy to read and has a feel-good factor to it that puts it above the rest. It's predictable in some ways but that doesn't detract from the story at all. I'll definitely be looking up Alexandra Potter to see what else she's got to offer. If they're half as good as this one I'll be stocking up!
it was brilliant chick-lit and so relatable, everyone wishes for things without thinking. i had so many favourite parts in the book.
the reference to Sex and the City and 'Why did Carrie choose Mr Big? i never got it, She could have had Aiden!!' which is exactly how i felt! :)
The funniest moments were when Heather and Gabe were discussing the american word for bottoms :) and when she flashed at her sexy neighbour by accident. And the lists that Heather wrote were a great addition to the book.
Jess was such a funny character, i loved her flirting with Gabe. And Gabe was a brilliant character, i much prefered him to James! i also loved the name Billy Smith for a cat, i wanted to cuddle him! And her dad Lionel had me in stitches! I loved all the characters apart from Rosemary's daughter, she was annoying. And Brian dressed up as Cher! i loved that bit, he was fabulous. i could go on forever but i will stop!
I just loved the book and thought the ending was perfect. i dont think it was too predicatable, there were some little twists that i loved. It's just so good! buy it, u wont regret it.
Although I like humorous books, I am not normally a chicklit fan. If you are, you might enjoy this.
Its fantastic its the best chic book i've read in ages its funny with a slight hint of sadness towards the end it really is great.
Its about a girl called heather who buy's some lucky heather off a gypsy and every thing she wishes for comes true!! And I mean everything only thing is it doesnt make her happy and she has to makes some big choices to become happy again
its a bit predictable but in a great way.
I had one wish after finishing the book and that was the book was a lot longer!
A must buy for the beach!!
I'd also buy angel by katie price as that is just as good!
Don't expect deep discussions from this book - but do select it if you want a very good, relaxing and extrememly enjoyable light read!
I don't know anyone who has tried it and hasn't enjoyed it.
