Three Wishes

Book: Three Wishes
Author: Liane Moriarty

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.-Goodreads

Review: Similar to Big Little Lies, Three Wishes opens with a 'scene' and then goes back in time working toward the event. Unlike BLL, the event here wasn't as shocking as a murder. It was a set of triplets fighting at a birthday celebration. The book basically follows a set of triplets as they navigate family, friendship and life. Moriarty is a skilled writer and definitely kept me engaged and interested in the story. While I was interested in the triplets, I couldn't help feeling like that plot itself was a little thin. 

Overall-this was a fun read and would be perfect for the beach or vacation. 

Grade: 3/5
