WovenWishes.v5PokrasThrough thick and thin, heels and flats, our secrets stay within. We’re not just friends, we’re sisters, too. Bound by blood until the end.

On the surface life seems pretty good for the three Haines sisters. So many wishes have already come true for Ava, Holly, and Tessa. However, things aren’t always as they appear. Dreams were given up over the years, while others still remain unfulfilled and out of reach. And what about unexpected wishes? The ones nobody ever thought they’d have to hope for—the ones that will leave them shaken to the core, wondering what lies ahead. They’ve always been able to pull through thanks to the support they give each other, yet sometimes, even a sisterly bond isn’t enough. Will Ava, Holly, and Tessa see their ultimate wishes finally come true?

Review:

I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.

This book is part of a series.  I did not realize that until I was well into the story.  This one stands by itself just fine.  I could tell though I was missing some back story with the characters.  I will be looking for the first three books of this series.

What a great story about sisters and the bond between them.  There's no one else on earth who can stick with you like a sister.  The Haines sisters have such a tight bond.  The author does a spectacular job showing the multifaceted connection between the three sisters in this story.

Woven Wishes is mostly about the youngest sister, Tessa.  We see how her life is supported by her sisters and how they perceive her life.  We also see what happens when not everything is communicated and how that can upset the balance in relationships.

I really enjoyed reading this book.  Makes me look back at my life with my two younger sisters.  I am blessed to have them in my life.  Whether you have sisters (or brothers) by blood or not, let them know how much they mean to you.  Doing that will only strengthen your relationship with them.

My Mother's ring is my favorite piece of jewelry. My husband gave it to me many years ago for Mother's Day.
