About the Author
Coming from two generations of journalists, writing was in Fiona Harper’s genes. As a child she was constantly teased for having her nose in a book and living in a dream world. Things haven't changed much since then, but at least in writing she's found a use for her runaway imagination! She loves dancing, cooking, reading and watching a good romance. Fiona lives in London with her family. Visit her website at: www.fionaharper.com

The story is about two sisters - one is Juliet a divorced mother of four who carries the weight of the world on her shoulders and tries to make everything perfect for everyone to the detriment of her own well-being. Then there is Gemma the single carefree younger sister who has always been protected from difficult family crisis's to the point that she feels lacking in some way. Both sisters are not close and neither understand what the other is feeling or thinking. After a fierce argument where Juliet is is practically on the point of a dangerous breakdown, the sisters swap roles for Xmas. Gemma offers to take care of the kids and do Christmas with them whilst Juliet takes off on a Caribbean holiday during the period.
During this swap the girls learn things about themselves and each other which helps to heal the rift that has been there over the years. In the process they grow as individuals and when they finally do have that talk once Juliet is back from her holiday you can only see things getting better for each of them and for everyone else around them.
I absolutely loved this book. It was really well written with a marvelous plot. The respective love interests for the two girls was interesting too even if one of them wasn't quite what we expected. I will definitely be reading more of Fiona Harper and have downloaded one of her other books which is in the Kindle Charts. Excellent Work!
Juliet is a single mother to her children and wants a Christmas that is a joyful family celebration. Her sister Gemma however, is free and single and has dreams of a Christmas is the beautiful Caribbean sun. But soon there are new plans involving a Christmas swap - Gemma will spend a snowy Christmas with her nieces and nephews and Juliet will be going on a tropical holiday, living Gemma's adventures and life.
I really enjoyed this. I loved the idea of the Christmas swap, and I looked forward to reading about how each sister would cope when living the life of the other sister at Christmas. And it was fascinating to read as they both threw themselves into their new roles, Gemma having to look after the children and Juliet spending time in the sunshine.
The characters were really well-written, the children were personal favourites of mine, and I loved that they played a valuable part in Gemma's Christmas. I really enjoyed Gemma and Juliet's personal journeys and reading about their development as they gained a deeper understanding of what life was like for each other. At times it really touched my heart and I don't want to spoil it so I won't say anymore but it is a beautifully written story.
Make My Wish Come True is a novel of family, romance and Christmas spirit all rolled into one, making this a wonderful story to curl up with and enjoy!
The sisters are total opposites, Gemma is a career girl working in the film industry whilst Juliet is a stay at home single mum and during the book they each learn about some home truths about themselves and each other. Both characters are extremely likeable but I suspect most readers, depending on their circumstances, will identify more with one sister than the other. As a mum myself. I really rooted for Juliet.
The story moves at a good pace and there is always something going on. I loved the descriptions of St Lucia, the author makes it sound like paradise on earth and now I would dearly love to go there. There are a few twists and turns in the storyline and it is not as predictable as you might think as the author has a couple of surprises in store for the reader.
To sum up, this is a really enjoyable read, at times moving and thought provoking and then making me giggle on the next page and one which has put me right in the mood for Christmas.
