Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty

ellen archer 3

I have an author crush on Liane Moriarty.  Her protagonists are strong three-dimensional women who are funny, witty, and I usually want to be their friend.  ~Sheila

 

Lyn, Cat, and Gemma are thirty-three year old triplets.  Alone, each is stunning, together, they turn heads constantly.  While they are a force to be reckoned with, each carries her own burden…

 

Lyn views life as a check list as she marks things off her to do list day by day

Cat is dealing with painful facts about her marriage

Gemma is finally considering staying in a relationship longer than 6 months.

 

When all else seems to be falling apart…they can always count on each other.

 

 

Of course I chose this read because it is Moriarty.  Yes, Moriarty of The Husband’s Secret, Big, Little Lies, and What Alice ForgotThat Moriarty.

Three Wishes is an older title for Moriarty and I felt the difference in her character development.  While the three sisters were witty and funny and all that I enjoy about her books, the story line left me drifting a bit and honestly I can not even tell you what the big plot moment was.

While the book is fine, I think I am so used to the power packed punch reads that Moriarty has been cranking out the past couple of years that I set the bar too high on this one and to me…

it was left wanting.

  1. It sounds interesting; I will look for it.

  2. I am watching out for The Last Anniversary which should be published later this month as I’ve loved the three you mentioned and loved them all. As you say this author has a knack of portraying women as they actually are, especially in Little Lies.

  3. LOVED her novel, The Husband’s Secret. Will have to check her other books out!

  4. I have enjoyed the two novels read of Liane Moriarty, certainly an entertaining and thought provoking author. I sometimes find earlier books don’t come up to the level of later books by an author, but still interesting to read them and see how they have developed. I quite like the sound of this one.

  5. I’ve only two of her books and just loved them all. I would still like to read the two I’ve missed.

  6. I’ve read the big three by Moriarty that you mentioned in your post, and really liked them. I picked up an older work (it has hypnotist in the title I think?) the other day. Can’t wait to see if I have the same experience you did with her earlier stuff.

  7. That’s too bad! I just finished Big Little Lies earlier this week and was blown away by it. I also loved The Husband’s Secret. I’ll probably stick to her newer titles.
