One Wish Book Review

I read this in a day like less than 12 hours! One Wish (Thunder Point) by Robyn Carr came off a long reserve list and was on my shelf at exactly the right time.  I finished the whole other series that I was reading and had no library books left in my pile.  I got a migraine and was super exhausted but totally bored.  I stayed in bed all day and finished this book in a day.  It was super great and hard to put down even though I really wanted to take a nap.  I couldn't stop reading!!!!

Grace Dillon was a champion figure skater until she moved to Thunder Point to escape the ruthless world of fame and competition. And though she's proud of the quiet, self-sufficient life she's created running a successful flower shop, she knows something is missing. Her life could use a little excitement. In a community where there are few eligible singles, high school teacher Troy Headly appoints himself Grace's fun coach. When he suggests a little companionship with no strings attached, Grace is eager to take him up on his offer, and the two enjoy…getting to know each other.  But things get complicated when Grace's past catches up with her, and she knows that's not what Troy signed up for. Faced with losing her, Troy realizes Grace is more than just a friend with benefits. He's determined to help her fight for the life she always wished for but never believed she could have—and maybe they can find real love along the way.

It was a little hard to clear the cobwebs in my brain and think back to the last book that I read in this series (especially with my headache).  I remember loving this little seaside town but the people and all of the histories were a little slow to come back.  You don't need to read the previous books in the series in order to enjoy this great story.  These characters are so great to watch grow and fall in love.  Grace kept all of her past secret from everyone in the town and they slowly all learned the truth but it didn't change their opinion of her or how they treated her except for Troy.  Troy thought he was okay with all of the past coming out but when presented with the reality, it was a little different then what he thought.  Grace and Troy have a lot to work out if they want to stay together.  I hope that you check this out at your local library or bookstore soon!!  I promise you will love this book and all the others in the Thunder Point series with more books coming out soon.  I can't wait for the next in the series to get released because I am already on the wait list at the library :)
