Three Wishes

Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty 

This book follows the travels of three sisters for roughly a year of their life.  The first introduction to the sisters is a scene from an outside perspective watching them at a restaurant when they seem to have an explosive argument. We hear nothing in this snippet from any of the sisters. From there we switch back in time and start hearing their story, switching between the three: Lyn, Cat, and Gemma Kettle. Each sister has an issue to deal with it, be it family, or love life related. All have a mirage built up that is bound to be broken soon. They have secrets they don’t even tell each other. Their relationships strain, together and with others. But, through this one year in their life they also grow stronger and closer. I did enjoy the outside snippets that show various parts of their lives. Though at first it didn’t seem as if they had any correlation to the current story, the more I read, the more clear it became how they interacted and impacted the story. It impacted my viewpoint on the girls too, as it gave another glimpse into them that I would otherwise never have seen. These girls resemble a family, like any other, except they are triplets and that makes them unique to everyone else around them.

Overall this book was a decent read. I liked it enough to keep reading .ore of this author’s books. It is also this author’s first book and that can account for some of the writing not being as grand. It took me a long time to read this one between other obligations and I can’t fully tell if it is because of the lack of a total hook to these characters, because I didn’t care for them as much as I usually do for other characters, or if it took me a long time to read for other reasons. 

Overall the book is a decent read and I am going to give this author another go by reading her next book.
