    Things are not always what they seem, as these two sisters find out Juliet and Gemma are four years apart, and their relationship is a bit strained Juliet, the older one, is now 40 years old and her world has been turned upside down with her recent divorce and now managing life as a single mom to her brood of four and working part time Gemma is an Assistant Director, whose world revolves around work and hobnobbing with movie stars Juliet has always strived for a perfect Christmas, and she has Things are not always what they seem, as these two sisters find out Juliet and Gemma are four years apart, and their relationship is a bit strained Juliet, the older one, is now 40 years old and her world has been turned upside down with her recent divorce and now managing life as a single mom to her brood of four and working part time Gemma is an Assistant Director, whose world revolves around work and hobnobbing with movie stars Juliet has always strived for a perfect Christmas, and she has detailed checklists to ensure that she doesn t miss a thing but it exhausts her This year, she asks Gemma for her help In all honesty, Juliet seems a bit resentful of Gemma s carefree life with no ties or commitments With both of their parents gone, Juliet is the one holding the family together, visiting their Great Aunt Sylvia twice weekly who is becomingforgetful and senile as the days go by Juliet takes care of everyone s needs but her own, and her time is just stretched way too thin.Juliet has a handsome neighbor, Will, who is just a friend but it could probably be somethingif one of them would just make a move Gemma is a bit of a spoiled brat, in my opinion She thinks very highly of herself and feels that her time isvaluable than Juliet s because of her demanding job Juliet thinks that Gemma is selfish, and I don t disagree.Of course, Juliet doesn t get the help from Gemma that she needs When Gemma finally graces Juliet s family with her presence and presents, to ease her guilty conscience , Gemma admits that she has booked a holiday in St Lucia at an all inclusive resort The sisters have a row and Juliet has a meltdown, and Gemma offers to do a switcheroo She will host Christmas at Juliet s home and take care of all the preparations, and Juliet can go off on a solo holiday at a tropical resort and take a much needed break from reality Juliet balks, but her teenage daughter convinces her to go when she tells her that the kids know that their mom is not happy and that she s stressed out and that sometimes she takes it out on them by yelling Juliet is horrified, yet she knows it s true She s just so tired, and it s tough raising a family on your own She sees the good that this respite could do for her, so she agrees.When Juliet meets an Italian man who is staying in the villa next to hers, sparks fly but it doesn t end well Meanwhile, there s an attraction developing between Gemma and Will which causes a bit of guilt for both of them because of the potential relationship that Will could have with Juliet What a mess This holiday tale wasn t what I was expecting I was hoping that Juliet would be whisked off her feet and meet the man of her dreams, but that s not how things ended for her so that was a bit of a disappointment The story wasabout family and the relationship between the sisters and, while there were romantic partners for both of them, I felt the romances were secondary Juliet and Gemma finally communicate about their feelings towards each other, and all that resentment that had festered for so many years begins to dissolve I think it did the sisters good to take a walk in each other s shoes, so to speak.So, all in all, it does end up being a feel good holiday story about two sisters who make amends with each other.This review was posted on my book blog

    So I should probably fess up first and admit that Fiona Harper is a friend and she has even written a dedication to me in this book which I am sooo proud of But this is an absolutely honest review I swear All right, enough about meI Fricking LOVED this book I loved both Juliet neurotic suburban divorcee with four unruly kids and an almost OCD determination to have the Perfect Christmas and her little sister Gemma flighty, reckless and a little thoughtless assistant director who So I should probably fess up first and admit that Fiona Harper is a friend and she has even written a dedication to me in this book which I am sooo proud of But this is an absolutely honest review I swear All right, enough about meI Fricking LOVED this book I loved both Juliet neurotic suburban divorcee with four unruly kids and an almost OCD determination to have the Perfect Christmas and her little sister Gemma flighty, reckless and a little thoughtless assistant director who has always found Juliet as uptight as Juliet finds her irresponsible Their relationship has been deteriorating for years and reaches a crisis when Gemma once again books a holiday abroad for Christmas instead of spending the season at Juliet s elaborate family Christmas bash in Tunbridge Wells, even though she promised to help this year But this year is different in one way The wheels are starting to finally come off Juliet s perfect trolly Her determination to do everything in exactly the right way is pulling her further and further away from the good person she strives so hard to be As a result Gemma has the do or die brainstorm of suggesting that her and Juliet swap Christmases So she ends up winging it through Christmas with Juliet s kids in Tunbridge Wells and being forced to call on the disapproving guy next door Will for help While Juliet heads for a luxury beach holiday on St Lucia, and a villa next door to a particularly delicious Italian guy called Marco.Now you re probably all thinking you know what s going to happen next But this is no easy pat transformation for either sister and watching them struggle to come to terms with all the misconceptions and mistakes they ve made about each other and themselves over the years is done with such humour and insight, not just into women but also sibling relationships, well it s irresistible You ll come to love and identify with both Gemma and Juliet despite all their flaws And they, like all of us, have plenty.Without giving away any spoilers, we do eventually discover why Juliet finds it so hard to relax, especially at Christmas, and why Gemma has never had the emotional maturity to actually nurture her relationship with her sister instead of running away from conflicts Will and Marco help with that, and not in the ways you would expect.What a great book And great for putting you in the mood for Christmas, not just to celebrate all the wonderful things the festive season brings, but also to prepare you to face all those mini frustrations and family squabbles that are liable to come with it too This is a fabulously festive, witty, heartfelt seasonal treat from a fabulous writer and she s a mate of mine or did I mention that already

    I love books that set a traditional winter scene, something to get me in that festive mood, featuring snowy weather, warming up by the fire So naturally, as soon as I heard about Make My Wish Come True, a new book based around two sisters and their rather different Christmases, I had to pick it up I loved the sound of the stay at home, traditional English country Christmas, though I can t say I was keen on the thought of a Caribbean Christmas However, I picked the book up and was excited to s I love books that set a traditional winter scene, something to get me in that festive mood, featuring snowy weather, warming up by the fire So naturally, as soon as I heard about Make My Wish Come True, a new book based around two sisters and their rather different Christmases, I had to pick it up I loved the sound of the stay at home, traditional English country Christmas, though I can t say I was keen on the thought of a Caribbean Christmas However, I picked the book up and was excited to start reading This story focuses on two sisters Juliet and Gemma Juliet and Gemma are quite different characters, mainly reflected in the very different lives at they lead Juliet is a single mother, highly organised but always running flat out doing everything she can for her children and community Gemma is an actress, not often staying in one place and not one who takes on many responsibilities Juliet is planning a big traditional Christmas, cooking a big meal for all invited When Gemma tells her sister that she will be flying out to the Caribbean for the big day, a quick and somewhat crazy decision is made for Juliet to take the break she needs by going alone to the Caribbean, whilst Juliet takes over the big festivity that was planned at home.My Christmas book wishes werethan fulfilled with the experience of Gemma s quite dysfunctional English Christmas With this Christmas I got everything I asked for for, from the little mentions of the decorations to the children s excitement and squabbles Harper did fantastically well creating a real sense of festive spirit Her half of the story really showed the spirit of the community around her as they all pulled together to make the day a good one.Although I personally find the thought of a Caribbean Christmas awful, thankfully it was certainly not bad to read about Harper was able to switch me from the a chilly cottage in England to the sweltering beaches in just a turn of the page I thought it may be a bit difficult getting into two different main settings but it was surprisingly easy and it was actually really enjoyable to see the difference between the two and makes the festivity a little less full on for those who just like general chick lit Of course, it also allowed for character reflection and for , different character relationships.I came to really like both Juliet and Gemma as the book progressed From the beginning, I found Juliet nice enough and she had a real sense of realism she is the character that I think that most will prefer at the beginning of reading I didn t particularly like Gemma at the beginning of the book though I didn t particularly dislike her, either mainly because I didn t really get much of a sense of who she was I most certainly warmed to Gemma throughout the book, as did other characters, by seeing her in a different light The author did a really good job of helping us to understand how and why the sisters didn t fully understand or appreciate each other.As with most chick lit books, there were of course love interests for our two protagonists I was completely caught up in the atmosphere with Gemma and Will, they worked surprisingly well together, though I admit I would haven t have been best pleased if I was Juliet Juliet s relationship with the charismatic Marco was so fantastically written though I was cautious, I was sucked in and I felt like I d been punched in the stomach towards the end but that s what good writing does For me, it was the family relationship that really made this book what it was seeing the family and friends come together definitely shone through the pages.Make My Wish Come True is definitely on my recommended reads list, for anyone who is a fan of well written chick lit Whether you d like a traditional country christmas or one in the sun, this book shows you what Christmas really is about, without losing any of the fun

    A nice book to read when you don t need anything too challenging to read Meet 2 sisters and their very different lives Although it is based on Christmastime, it could be read round the pool in the summer and still be enjoyable.

    Review originally published on my blog was very pleasantly surprised by Fiona Harper s Make My Wish Come True I admit that initially when I was offered a review copy I felt a bit sceptical as I wrongly assumed that a novel published by Mills Boon would always be a smut or erotica read And while there is nothing wrong with that, it isn t what I generally enjoy reading myself So I was ready to decline the kind offer, until I read the book s blurb and Review originally published on my blog was very pleasantly surprised by Fiona Harper s Make My Wish Come True I admit that initially when I was offered a review copy I felt a bit sceptical as I wrongly assumed that a novel published by Mills Boon would always be a smut or erotica read And while there is nothing wrong with that, it isn t what I generally enjoy reading myself So I was ready to decline the kind offer, until I read the book s blurb and saw its enticing festive cover I adore Christmas, so festive books are pretty much my favourite thing in the world , which made it sound muchlike a chick lit novel and right up my alley and I am very glad I gave this book a go Fairly recently I read Jane Green s excellent novel Life Swap and the premise to Make My Wish Come True rang very similar, even if in this case it s two sisters swapping lives and not two strangers It s always so easy to believe that the grass is greener on the other side when you re swamped down by the problems in your own hectic life but when experiencing the other person s day to day routine, as both Gemma and Juliet get the chance to do, it not only shows that perhaps the other side isn t quite as perfect as you think it is, but it also gives the sisters some much needed perspective on their own actions The sisters have a very forced relationship and by not being able to get past old issues and misconceptions this doesn t ever get a chance to change, until they step into each other s shoes and for the first time can see what it s like to be on the other of the accusations.Both Gemma and Juliet were well rounded characters who became very real people with each page that I turned As the story progressed I becameandinvested in their lives and the burdens they ve been carrying with them for so long Juliet s children were a joy to read about the sullen teenager Violet who perhaps feltresponsibility than she should have on her young shoulders, the incredibly wise Polly who usually sounded like a 40 year old instead of the 10 year old she is, and the young twins boys who brought some much needed joy and mischief into the house And let s not forget Will, the gentleman neighbour who is quite a dish to look at too, I wouldn t mind having a neighbour like that myself Despite being a fairly light and flirty read for the most part, the sisterly relationship was quite intense at times and as the story unfolded and secrets unraveled some of the revelations made it a heart breaking and though provoking novel too Thankfully the Christmas setting also added a lot of warmth to the story and author Fiona Harper truly managed to paint that hectic but oh so wonderful atmosphere that goes hand in hand with crazy Christmas cooking schedules and eclectic gatherings of friends and family members who under any other circumstance would have been unable to spendthan a few minutes in the same room.Harper describes the complicated family dynamics central to the story with a lot of heart, and with her witty writing style she also adds a charm which turns a novel which could so easily have been too intense or dull, into something engaging and heartfelt And after reading Make My Wish Come True I m not only very keen to check out one of her other books, but she s also single handedly changed my perspective on Mills Boons novels, which are definitely worth checking out even if, like me, you re not a big reader of theirtraditional romantic titles
