Review: Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty
Summary from Goodreads:
A New York Times bestseller, Three Wishes is the funny, heartwarming and completely charming first novel from Liane Moriarty, also the author of #1 New York Times bestsellers The Husband’s Secret and Big Little Lies.
Lyn, Cat, and Gemma Kettle, beautiful thirty-three-year-old triplets, seem to attract attention everywhere they go. Together, laughter, drama, and mayhem seem to follow them. But apart, each is dealing with her own share of ups and downs. Lyn has organized her life into one big checklist, Cat has just learned a startling secret about her marriage, and Gemma, who bolts every time a relationship hits the six-month mark, holds out hope for lasting love. In this wise, witty, and hilarious novel, we follow the Kettle sisters through their tumultuous thirty-third year as they deal with sibling rivalry and secrets, revelations and relationships, unfaithful husbands and unthinkable decisions, and the fabulous, frustrating life of forever being part of a trio.
Yet another Moriarty novel with a plot that does not disappoint and is not common, and the writing was just as amazing.
The characters in this one were not as great as her other novels, my favorite one was Gemma (I adored her) of the three triplets, while some of others like Cat, Lyn, were a little hard to like.
The twists and turns of the tale were okay but easy to spot, but I still enjoyed reading the novel. But some parts of it were super depressing but at least the end of it had a somewhat happy ending.
I recommend checking out this novel if you enjoy Moriarty's writing and interesting plots.
