The Wish by Alex Brown

51Dsms9W8rL._SY346_ Synopsis The touching and emotional new novel from the No.1 bestselling author of The Great Christmas Knit-Off and The Secret of Orchard Cottage

Sam Morgan knows he messed up with his wife Chrissie and daughter Holly – he wasn’t there when they needed him most, but now he’ll do anything to put his family back together again. Until then, he’s back living in the picture-postcard village of Tindledale.

Jude Darling is coming home for good this time. She’s taking over the antique shop in Tindledale, the place where she grew up and she’s going to make sure she’s there for her friend, Chrissie, and Goddaughter, Holly. They certainly need her right now.

As for Holly, there’s only one thing she wants and it’s not the sort of thing you can buy in a shop. She might be thirteen years old, but Holly still believes in wishes, and perhaps if she wishes hard enough, this one might come true…

Kat’s Rating: 5/5

My Review: I am SO annoyed at myself. I am a HUGE fan of the Tindledale books and had NO idea that this book is also set in the wonderful village of Tindledale. Once I had berated myself I dove straight in, and believe it or not, turned the last page that very same day. To say I loved this book is an understatement.

Sam Morgan has come back from living and working abroad to try and make things right in his marriage. His wife Christie and daughter Holly live in Tindledale but its clear from pretty early on that Sam is going to have his work cut out with Christie. Holly has also meanwhile turned into as teenager and Sam had no clue how much things had changed. We also meet Jude who has come back to live in Tindledale after working in Los Angeles. Being closer to her Dad and back in the place she grew up is clearly what drew her back, but she hadn’t planned on meeting and working with an ex-rockstar who is somewhat unusual!

I absolutely LOVED all of the characters, the storyline and being back in the fictional village of Tindledale. I am thrilled that I picked this book up, but at the same token slightly irritated that I read it so quickly. I would highly recommend this book along with all the others set in Tindledale as the characters are fantastic!
