If what you wish for is a delightfully bittersweet novel filled with endearing, eccentric characters and situations in the vein of Jennifer Weiner, Jane Green, Marian Keyes, and Meg Cabot, then Kerry Reichs's What You Wish For is the answer to your prayers. The daughter of forensic crime fiction superstar Kathy Reichs (bestselling creator of the Temperence Brennan mystery series, the basis for TV's Bones), Kerry Reichs's writing talent is ingrained in her DNA, as she's already demonstrated with her previous books, Leaving Unknown and The Best Day of Someone Else's Life. Her third novel, What You Wish For, is a tender, loving, funny, and unforgettable tale of five "modern" families, each one following a very different road to happiness, and yet another bravura example of Kerry Reichs's phenomenal storytelling abilities.

A complicated look at various women, who's lives all intersect at various points in the book, as well as one man. A nice read, but overly complicated and a bit too fantastical in places.

Kerry is a great writer.I had a hard time putting the book down.She tells the story well and it's an easy read. I found it interesting however that she was able to understand the motivations and inner feelings of the men in the story but not the women, esp. the character or Maryn.
