Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty

GR summary:
Lyn, Cat, and Gemma Kettle, beautiful thirty-three-year-old triplets, seem to attract attention everywhere they go. Whenever they're together, laughter, drama, and mayhem seem to follow. But apart, each is very much her own woman, dealing with her own share ofups and downs. Lyn has organized her life into one big checklist, juggling the many balls of work, marriage, and motherhood with expert precision, but is she as together as her datebook would have her seem? Cat has just learned a startling secret about her marriage -- can she bring another life into her very precarious world? And can free-spirited Gemma, who bolts every time a relationship hits the six-month mark, ever hope to find lasting love?

In this wise, witty, hilarious new novel, we follow the Kettle sisters through their thirty-third-year, as they struggle to survive their divorced parents' dating each other, their technologically savvy grandmother, a cheating husband, champagne hangovers, and the fabulous, frustrating life of forever being part of a threesome. A family comedy about sibling rivalry, "Three Wishes is an assured and warmhearted debut.

I read this for my 2017 Topic Discard Challenge, a book you feel takes you out of your comfort zone. I avoid chick-lit like the plague, but occasionally I find a book, or author, in that genre that is out standing. I loved this story with all its drama. It was sad and beautiful. I loved each of the sisters in their own way with all their flaws. The ending was perfect for the sisters.


Perri | 396 comments This is the earliest Moriarty book I've read and I liked her more recent ones better -Big Little Lies, The Husband's Secret. But this showed the promise of her writing. For chick-lit, she addressed some pretty heavy issues. I look forward to reading Truly Madly Guilty. Oh, I read this for the author in the southern hemisphere prompt
