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, walls, and ceilings back helped return me back to a semi-normal state. When the kitchen gets started I won't know what to do with myself.

Back to my review though. I should have known better than to buy this in hardcover. I really enjoyed the first book in the series, even though I found problems with it. Did not really like the second one, and this one was a wash too. Deveraux tries to hard to connect all of the books/characters into this one and making it that one woman needs to choose a different destiny/future in order for the Summerhouse phenomenon (as I call it) to continue.

The characters in this one did not grab me at all. We had one characters story just pretty much equal, she needed an aggressive man to help her find her sexuality (yes seriously) and another one just needed to embrace love. I don't know. The whole book just jumped around too much for me to like it much. I really have to stop reading time travel books, they end up irking me mostly.

The three characters we first meet are Olivia, Elise, and Kathy's husband, Ray. Olivia is asked to help Elise and Ray get settled after their therapist is held up. Elise wants Olivia to stay since she is not in the mood to be alone with Ray and Ray doesn't want Elise hitting on him. Yeah that mess happened.

Not too much to say about Ray except I disliked him. He is also referred to as a thug a few times by Olivia and Elise and that he is aping to be white collar though he's really blue collar through and through. No, Ray isn't black so I don't know what the heck was going on there. Also how about we not call people thugs that don't come from privileged backgrounds cause it says more about you than it does them.

Eventually we get Olivia, Elise, and Ray's wife Kathy all together. We find out fairly early on that Ray is having an affair and wants to leave Kathy and he doesn't feel any chemistry with Kathy. However, we also realize that Kathy does everything for Ray so that makes him sexist? I don't know. This book had too many plot lines.

Olivia is newly married to someone she loved when she was younger. It's a second marriage for them both and Olivia is hiding a horrible secret (guess what it is) and resentful of her first husband and his having a whole second family.

Elise's husband locked her up cause you know he's in love with someone else and they tried to poison her.

All of the stories deal with women who got with the wrong men and the men cheated on them in some way. Not very appealing for a romance book.

It takes way too long for the time travel aspect to even get going and Deveraux per usual just shows us two women's story-line in the past, and has the third one come back to the present and tell the other two. I booed the whole thing cause it really came down to the women just choosing different men. At least in book one it really dealt with two out of the three women just deciding things for themselves. We had Leslie keeping her same past and choosing a different present and Madison forcing herself to go forward with being a model instead of returning home to her high school love.

And also these three women just forgive the trash men in their lives who did crap to them in the past, but it doesn't matter since nothing came to past and I don't know I just threw my hands up in the air and let it go.

The long time readers will get a kick out of seeing the Montgomery family again though. ( )

My Review of
As You Wish by Jude Deveraux

I was thoroughly enchanted with As You Wish. This is a series but may be read as a standalone. If you have never read this author or series before then you are in for a treat. I quickly settled into this story. Jude Deveraux did not disappoint with this installment of the series. The three women who are looking to change one thing about their past were as different as could be but bonded together well. The men were well... what can I say, I could not stand any of these women's husbands except for Olivia's husband and that was questionable at times. The author did her job of making these men intolerable. The women in this story had great character traits and each one had a very compelling backstory which I found so interesting I could not wait for every chance that I had to listen to this book. This is an enchanting book that also gives a message of hope, love and how important it is as women to show strength and independence.This review was originally posted on My Fiction Obsession ( )

Jude Deveraux is a guilty pleasure. This is the third installment in the Summerhouse series. Olivia is in her sixties, and is finally married to the man of her dreams. But, she wishes that they were married in their 20s and had 40 years of love together. Elise and Kathy regret their marriages, and are sent to stay with Olivia. After telling each other their stories, they find a card which tells them they can rewrite their past. They go to check out this possibility.
Light, sexy, love triumphs all - as usual in a Jude Deveraux novel, but they are so sweet, I enjoy reading them.

Love this story. I didn't know what this story was about when I began to read it. So I slipped into the story slowly and hesitantly. At first I wasn't sure I was going to like it. It was confusing and I didn't like one of the characters.

But soon I started falling head over heels for the characters and their plights. I loved the women in this novel. Their strengths and their weakness. I loved their bond and their friendship. I loved their differences. I couldn't put it down.

This story had so much to it. Whimsy, magic, sadness, love, hope, and destiny. If you want a feel good story. With a happy ending. Then this is the story for you. The epitome of Chic Lit. I definitely recommend.
