Maria reviews Wishing for Wonderful – The Reader Salute
What a great novel this was! First off I am a dog lover and love any kind of books involving them so I knew I’d like it but after reading Ms. Bette Lee Crosby’s other 2 novels and this being the 3rd I have found a love for her family oriented books! I just really get into her characters the way she describes them and the surroundings just makes you feel like you are there with them. This novel has some family drama when Lindsey moves back home after being let go of her last job and getting ditched by too many men only to find her dad has found a girlfriend! She cant see anyone with dad by mom but mom has been gone too many years so her dad falls back in love with an old flame who as also lost her husband as well. I love how the story is being told by Cupid who has to make matches and make people happy! He has his hands full with Lindsey and she never picks the right guy and now that she is back home it is messing with his other match her dad John and Eleanor who has a son Ray who is also none to happy his mom has a new beau! There is so much more to this story so give it try as it is not just a winter or Christmas read! I definitely recommend it and give it 5 * * * * * because once you read Ms. Crosby’s novels you won’t stop! Keep them coming Bette!!!

Praise for Wishing for Wonderful –
Crosby has now become one of my favorite authors! I have read some of her other books like “Spare Change” and thought they were wonderful. This is completely in a different realm for Crosby and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it.
John and Eleanor met in high school and fell in love. Life happened and they were not able to be together at that time so they both married someone else. Their spouses pass away and when they finally spot each other while shopping, their romance blossoms again. The only thing standing in the way of their happily ever after is their children who need to realize the love in themselves before they can ever be happy.
The story is told from Cupid’s point of view and it is charming and funny. A great Christmas love story. – I. MansterRead an excerpt from Wishing for Wonderful Book discussion questions for Wishing for Wonderful
