Ava Haines has her whole life already mapped out ahead of her. She knows what she wants and how she wants it. She just needs to get from point A to point B somehow. To do that, she'll first need to pass her Statistics class. This is her third time around for the class, and she's hell-bent in getting it done. Doing that, however, is going to take some doing.

Determined to learn what she needs to learn fast, Ava puts her trust in her tutor. Granted, things don't go so well, but she refuses to give

I was given an ARC of both the originally published version and this one for an honest review. I was introduced to Karen's work by a friend who recommended Pie and Other Brillant Ideas, I loved that book and was excited to read her new series. When I read the first version I was a little shocked because it didn't seem like the same author had written both books. I was delighted to read this new version, Karen put a lot of work into editing the original story and for me it was well worth it. I wa ...more

Once in a while an author writes a cross-genre from their norm. Typically I don't tend to follow, depends on the book, but something told me Ava's Wishes would be an excellent start to a fantastic new series from the truly talented author, Karen Pokras Toz!

Pokras does an incredible job at letting us get to know Ava, the main character-a college student just looking to have some fun on the crazy path to college graduation. You certainly relate to Ava, or wish you could've been Ava...to a degree!

All Ava was worried about was passing her statistics class so that she could graduate and get a job. She wasn't looking for a relationship. But life had other plans for Ava because suddenly there are two men in her life. While I had a feeling early on that something was just not quite right with one of them, I was completely shocked at the plot twist. Sometimes things are not what they appear to be.

Ava's Wishes is an excellent first book in a new series, Whispered Wishes. Karen Pokras, who has

4.5/5.0

Ms.Pokras does an excellent job of introducing both romantic lead possibilities without shadowing which will be the winner of her heart, or which one intends to bring her harm.
