BLURB from Goodreads
#1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Barbara Freethy, takes us back to the beach in an emotional love story between two best friends who have been separated for a very long time.
Alexa Parker and Braden Elliott fell in love when they were twelve years old. On a summer day, while searching for sea glass on the beaches of Washington State, they discovered an unusually shaped blue bottle. The ever-imaginative Alexa declared it a genie’s bottle. Popping the cork, they were surprised by a rogue wave that sprayed them with a fine, cool mist. Closing their eyes, they each made a wish …
Before their love had a chance to grow, life, family and tragedy separated the two best friends. Now fifteen years later, Alexa returns to Sand Harbor after her aunt is injured in a mysterious break-in at her antique store. Braden is also back, but he’s not the innocent boy Alexa remembers. His military service has left him with physical and emotional scars.
Can the sweet love of youth be recaptured by two now cynical souls? Can solving the mystery of the past bring them to a new future? Or will it take a wish, maybe two …
So the cover does depict the book but I have to admit I am not quite as keen on this cover as I was for the BK 1 in the Wish Series.
This book is the story of Alexa and Braden who have been friends forever, well they "fell in love" when they were just twelve years old. It tells how they find the "genie bottle" both make a wish. They eventually grew apart due to their families and certain events that I won't go into, you will have to read the book! This book tells the story of what happens when they meet back up years later....
I did enjoy this book as much as book one in the Wish Series it kept me interested all the way through, I didn't like having to put it down to even eat! I love the style in which Barbara Freethy writes too. The only disappointment I had was I didn't want it to end!!
So did I enjoy it? Yes. Do I want to read more of the Wish Series ? Yes, of course. Do I want to read more by Barbara Freethy? Definitely!
