Overview

One fateful summer, three very different women find themselves together in Summer Hill, Virginia, where they find they have much more in common than they realized…

Sixty-year-old Olivia’s first marriage was long and unhappy, but now she is a newlywed, thrilled to finally be starting her life with the man she’s always truly loved—even if they are getting a late start. Kathy is in her forties and married to a handsome, successful businessman. Theirs would be a fairy-tale romance if it weren’t for one problem: he’s passionately in love with someone else! Twentysomething Elise is also in a troubled marriage, stuck with the man her wealthy parents chose for her. Now that he has a pregnant mistress, he seems willing to go to drastic lengths to take Elise out of the picture.

Though each of them wound up at the summerhouse for separate reasons, it’s not long before they begin to open up about their regrets, their wishes and their dreams. And when they’re presented with the opportunity of a lifetime—a chance to right the wrongs of their past—all three discover what can happen when dreams really do come true.

A heartfelt, magical tale, As You Wish is a shining example of Jude Deveraux’s enchanting storytelling that will charm longtime fans and delight a new generation of readers.

Unexpected, but the most satisfying of the series. Definitely in my reread stack!

The original The Summerhouse book is one of my favorites. I preordered this book and was so excited. I'm disapppinted to say that it was....disappointing. SPOILER ALERT. The plot frame was there but the dialogue and perspective from Olivia was just so....negative. There was a reoccurent adultery theme but it was shallowly addressed. The story seemed rushed and predictable. I have been a fan of this author for the last 20 years. The last few novels seemed to be disorganized and glazing over a bunch of the plot. I hate to leave a review thats not 5 stars. But the overall tone just seemed to scream of weak women. Not her usual style so I'm not sure why the sudden change in tone....hoping for the next to be better

I read the first summer house book in college and LOVED it! Many many years later I found the second and as I enjoyed it, it wasn’t quite the same, but this book brought me back to the first. The characters were rich with emotion, and sympathetic enough that you understood them, felt for them and rooted for them. I wish it was longer. I really enjoyed it and would definitely suggest it to anyone.

Every once in a while you come across one of those books that just sticks with you, that at the end you feel like you lost your friends and humbles you. In, As You Wish, by Jude Deveraux, you get so much...fiction, romance, time travel, second chances, and true to life struggles. Jude Deveraux, delivers an easy to read story. One of the things that got me about the writing of this book is how well the flashbacks are done. She delivered just enough to fill in the blanks and move the story along so perfectly. Then adding in the bit of time travel was just the cherry on top. An added bonus is that the if you love the Summerhouse series, you will appreciate this new addition. Olivia is a woman whose life did not turn out the way she thought it was going to. Living an unhappy life for so long can have its toll on a person. But now at 60 years old and a newlywed, she is over the moon on truly living the life she wanted, even though there are doubts and some conversations yet to be had. Kathy in her 40s is married to the man every woman wants and every man wants to be, but he is in love with someone else. Twenty year old, Elise, has a marriage arranged by her parents and their best friends. Her husband has a mistress that is having his baby and takes drastic measures to remove Elise from his life. Whether you believe in fate or not, these three women end up at the Summerhouse. These three women meet and drinks flow, what do they have to lose by opening up to complete strangers with conversations of regrets, wants and dreams. When an unexpected note is delivered the women have an opportunity to go back in time and make their dreams come true. 5 Brilliant stars **Review by Lisa, Late Night Reviewer for Up All Night with Books**

I enjoyed the fantasy in this story. It wasn’t quite as easy to lose myself into it like I can in books 1 and 2 of the series, but very enjoyable.
