A Wish Upon a Star By Jeannie Levig



 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐



When you see the Northern Lights or a unicorn, you are spellbound. Overcome with emotion, bursting to share your feeling and utterly lost for words. This book is like that. We’re left a blubbering mess of delight and feelings. Completely in love with every single character in this wonderful book.

Leslie Raymond and Erica Cooper are both in their fifties, which immediately gave this book many, many positive points. Erica has a seven-year-old daughter, Siena, an unusual occurrence in romances, but real enough otherwise. There is a dog, Gus, that adopts Leslie and then burrows his way into Siena’s (and our) heart. There are wonderful secondary characters – each one distinct and with a defined personality of their own.

The relationships between Siena and Leslie, Erica and even Gus are beautifully described. In fact, every single relationship has been carefully thought out and described such that we can practically live them.

Levig has thoughtfully crafted Leslie and Erica with their own fears, backstories, warmth, love, personalities and most importantly, arcs through the book. The narrative is flowing, comprehensive (no jumps in time, emotion or sequences), and keeps us turning the pages with a feeling of “just one more chapter”…especially when you just need to get up to pee!

It is a slow-burn tale with each of the women working through their own pasts and baggage. The chemistry is undeniable and the love bubbling. You actually feel every emotion with them. We can’t remember the last book that has moved us to tears. This one did.

It is absolutely phenomenal.
