Review: One Wish by Robyn Carr

Grace Dillon was a champion figure skater until she moved to Thunder Point to escape the ruthless world of fame and competition. And though she's proud of the quiet, self-sufficient life she's created running a successful flower shop, she knows something is missing. Her life could use a little excitement.

In a community where there are few eligible singles, high school teacher Troy Headly appoints himself Grace's fun coach. When he suggests a little companionship with no strings attached, Grace is eager to take him up on his offer, and the two enjoy…getting to know each other.

But things get complicated when Grace's past catches up with her, and she knows that's not what Troy signed up for. Faced with losing her, Troy realizes Grace is more than just a friend with benefits. He's determined to help her fight for the life she always wished for but never believed she could have—and maybe they can find real love along the way.

Kristine's Thoughts: 

I received an advanced readers copy of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

One Wish is book seven in the Thunder Point series. Although it is not necessary to read the first six to follow along, there are many secondary characters in the book that you may understand better if you do.

This was a typical and average contemporary romance. Although there wasn't anything that made it stand out as great to me, there was also nothing that made it the opposite. Did I wish for a stronger connection between Troy and Grace? Yes. Did I find Troy's personality lacking slightly? Yes. He came across a little immature for his age. Even with these slight faults it was an entertaining way to lose myself for a few hours.

I think my only complaint is that the author spent too much time setting up and beginning the story that will be found in the next instalment. I was deep in Troy and Grace's story when all of a sudden a new character and story is introduced in the middle of it. I understand the need to introduce characters when you are dealing with a series but I thought way too much time was spent on it and at a point in the story that interrupted the flow of Grace and Troy's. The stories did eventually blend somewhat but not before causing a slight speed bump.

One Wish is your typical story about two people who are attracted to each other in a tight knit community that you will find in these types of series. There are many characters and personalities and I feel it would be beneficial to read from the beginning although not necessary. I'm glad I had the opportunity to read it.
