The Wishing Hill is about three strong and complicated women – Juliet, Claire, and Desiree – whose lives were shaped by a family secret. Throughout of her life Juliet felt her flamboyant mother was absent. Desiree put her theatrical career and the men she loved first in her life, and Juliet and her brother Will were often left to fend for themselves. Claire was the mysterious neighbor who never interacted with Juliet until Desiree was hospitalized. What was their secret?
Juliet had a successful career painting watercolors and selling them to tourists in Puerto Vallarta. When Will called and told her he needed her to come home to care for their mother when she was released from the hospital. Juliet balked at first. She and her mother had a difficult relationship. Plus Juliet had secrets of her own, and she wasn’t willing to share them just yet.
Robinson paints a story that is credible with well-developed characters that are flawed and multifaceted. This is clearly an author I will follow. THE WISHING HILL was entertaining from beginning to end and filled with compassion, warmth, humor, and a bit of romance. Family relationships are never easy, but Holly Robinson and addressed the pitfalls of secrets kept. I give Holly Robinson’s THE WISHING HILL five stars.
