This is a great romance. I love romances that have deeper, serious themes. This one has a pervading theme of past losses and how one chooses to live with the fears caused by those losses. Both of the main characters have their own issues to deal with here and, in each other, they find the comfort and the challenge to face their own demons. I even teared up a few times at their pain. The best of Christie Ridgeway's that I've read yet.

It was a very good story. It was one of her older books and I am glad I found it at the library.

I really liked this story and the setting. I was enchanted with the island and the lifestyle. I was curious to see how it would turn out and if I would believe in the ending.

Wish You Were Here had some great moments. Some very funny dialog (like between Yeager and "Dolly") made for a few good laughs, and there were very poignant moments that held the readers interest.

The hint of mystical/magical overtones seemed out of place for me, and I had a hard time buying the depth of the secondary relationship, although I found it sweet.

Overall, I liked it, which is what 3* means. It was a decent book and wort

marginally more entertaining than the first book I read by her, but felt a bit dated now...

Christie Ridgway does it again. Not sure why I never read this one before. For those who love HEA. Hero, heroibe and minor characters each struggling with their own issues, and how love pervails..
Tressa
I loved the island and the characters. I also liked the humor, the warmth, the understanding, and the acceptance. I thought it was charming with its idealism.

My very first and still yet favorite Ridgway book. I fell hook, line and sinker for that dang astronaut!
Emily
Romance at its best. Ladies, get comfortable with this one.
Betsy
Well worth the read; Ridgway doesn't disappoint.
