About the Book
She closed her eyes. Think with your head. Your heart can’t be trusted. Life is not a fairytale…
Rory doesn’t believe in love. She’s got far too many real problems to deal with.
She’s just bought a tumbledown house. Her mother is generally behaving like a wicked witch, insisting on calling her Aurora, and generally interfering in her (admittedly pitiful lack of) love life. And her 16-year-old daughter has finally grown out of Disney princesses and discovered dating…
But Rory’s adamant that she doesn’t need saving. In fact, the only thing she’s wishing on a star for is a bit of practical help. However, when she meets a builder whose name is John Prince and who seems to be in the habit of rescuing her (right down to finding her lost shoe one evening) she might have to face a truth as uncomfortable as hobbling home barefoot – that maybe there’s something enchanted in the air.
Her mother, daughter and friends are convinced her prince has come, but Rory just wishes everyone could let it go. Especially when she hears a story that makes her question whether he is really the hero everyone thinks he is…
A hilarious, romantic love story about mothers, daughters and how on earth to find Prince Charming, for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Marian Keyes and Cecelia Ahern.
4 When You Wish Upon A Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Once Upon a Time… their lived a woman named Rory… Rory lived in a house in need of fixing up with her daughter Belle…Belle is 16 and has just discovered boys….Rory also has a mother who wants nothing but the best for her daughter, but sometimes can be a bit overbearing…. One day Rory is at the local hardware store getting things together to fix up her house when she meets John Prince handsome helpful contractor extraordinaire……
This was a very charming story… filled with some pretty amazing characters along with some pretty compelling drama… and the drama is multi generational grandma, Mom, and daughter all find them cells involved in some kind of sticky situation… I thought this was a lot of fun and I really liked the relationship between Grandma and mom, and grandma and granddaughter… the relationship I struggled with a little was between mom and daughter, Mom needed to step up and be a little more aware… perhaps because her mother was a little overbearing she was trying to not be that way, but a few questions should have been asked… just saying….
There were some funny moments in this book, however I’m not sure about the laugh out loud mentioned in the title… Emma Robinson’s first book was hilarious and this book was just as good it was just more sweet than funny… this book also had a bit more serious subject matter, and it was done really well! I just don’t want you to expect to be laughing every minute, this book is fun but not a over the top funny read…. although Rory goes on a pretty hilarious blind date….
Rory also has some pretty amazing BFFs… all these girls were so genuine and I love the bond between them all… John Prince was as expected too good to be true… but if you are in the middle of house renovations there is no better prince than a prince that knows what he’s doing with a hammer!
Absolutely recommend to fans of a sweet story with a bit of everything friendship, family, romance, house renovations, and drama…
And they all lived happily ever after…..
