Beloved New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux captures love's magic in this heartwarming novel about desires that are unexpectedly fulfilled. Jace Montgomery was a stranger in Chandler, Colorado. Tall, proud, and rugged, he would make any woman's heart beat faster--even shy, sweet Nellie Grayson's. Nellie, who has always been pleasantly plump, worked tirelessly to help her beautiful younger sister, Terel, to become the belle of the town. But it is Nellie who catches Jace's eye. For the first time, she is the center of a man's attention. And with their first kiss, Nellie finds herself falling helplessly, unexpectedly in love. But with her newfound joy comes the certainty that Jace will, sooner or later, be won over by Terel's charms. With the help of an enchanting new friend, Nellie discovers that her flirtatious sister might not be the woman for handsome Jace Montgomery after all...… (mais)

I really liked Wishes with the not so perfect fairy godmother thing going on. This book was really a fun read. I love how we are reading about Chandler, Colorado again and get to take a peak at Houston and Kane Taggart (Twin of Ice) Jace Montgomery comes to town and turns "fat" Nellie Grayson's life upside down. I devoured this book from start to finish. It pleased me so much that someone like Jace that could really love Nellie was able to see how wonderful a person she was when many others just took advantage of her. Fantastic book! ( )

I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand i obviously enjoyed reading it (finished it one day), but the ending infuriates me. Wishes is another Cinderella story, however, instead of a wicked stepmom and stepsister, we have a cruel father who plays favorites plus an envious and manipulative younger sister. Cinderella, aka Nellie, is kind and beautiful but is an emotional eater so she's overweight. Prince Charming, aka Jace, is a handsome and wealthy widower. And Berni, the fairy godmother, is a dead person trying to atone for her misdemeanors. I like the authors' idea of the afterlife, I like Jace and Berni, but I dislike it that Nellie's character remained weak. I wanted her to stand up to her abusive father and sister and for them to at least show remorse for everything they put her through. She deserved a better "happily ever after." ( )

Totally brainless but it was fun to read & I liked the points made even if they are obvious. Spoilers. Except they aren't. Just today there was a question to the advice columnist from a guy who was dating a great girl but she was fat.... I read this book, and the horrible treatment by the family is way over the top, but how different is it from what many of us experience? She just had them verbalize what everybody else thinks. It really did speak to something inside me.

From BackCover:
Jace Montgomery was a stranger in Chandler. Tall, proud, and ruggedly handsome, he would make any woman's heart beat faster.
Even shy, sweet Nellie Grayson -- Nellie, who thought only of her beautiful younger sister's happiness. With Nellie's tireless aid, Terel Grayson easily became the belle of Chandler, Colorado.

Yet Jace, homesick for his closeknit family in Maine, took immediately to Nellie. For the first time, Nellie was the center of attention. It was a heady, delightful feeling... almost as wonderful as the moment when Jace gave her her very first kiss.

Nellie was sure her romantic idyll would end -- how long could Jace resist the lovely Terel's charms? But with the help of an enchanting new friend, Nellie would discover that her flirtatious sister might not be the woman to win the gallant Jace Montgomery....
