Three friends, three wishes and a few lies

By Rachel Howdle

Cathy Bramley has done it again. The author of The Plumberry School Of Comfort Food has returned with a light, but inspirational tale.

It takes no time at all to get attached to the three lead characters, Jo, Sarah and Carrie. The trio are thrown together by fate when they meet at a funeral.

Wanting more from their lives, they set goals - Jo to save her business, Sarah to be partner at her firm and Carrie to get a bikini body.

It's obvious that there is much more to these women.

Jo is a workaholic, brought up to believe love and business don't mix, and Sarah cut short her maternity leave to return to work, leaving baby Zac at home.

Carrie wants to lose weight, but is a tangled mess of emotions.

Then things get worse as Sarah's baby, Zac, is hospitalised and Carrie catches her husband with another woman. At each event, I could feel my heart break for these women.

My stomach flipped as I felt Carrie's anguish.
