Three Wishes

Three Wishes Summary

The funny, heartwarming, and completely charming first novel from Liane Moriarty, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Nine Perfect Strangers 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 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.

Not her usual style. But a fun read….just ok35

I was so in to this book I would forget real Life from the book! Joking, sort of.55


Excellent book5 star

Really enjoyed the flow of the storyline.55


Loved it!5 star

I was bummed when I finished it! It’s a definite page turner and I couldn’t wait to see where the ladies went next. There were times I was irritated with what they were doing/saying/thinking but when do we ever love everything about someone? Never. It was funny, charming, heart wrenching and genuine. The characters seemed real and I loved the interaction between the main women and their crazy kooky family they love in spite of it all. I loved how at the end of each chapter was an excerpt from a stranger who’d seen the family doing something in public that touched their own lives. I thought this addition was witty and a wonderful idea.55

Good character development and a page turner for sure. Too much unsavory language for my taste but the characters were relatable in a quirky sort of way.45


Well Rounded5 star

The story follows 3 twin sisters through flashbacks and current realities as they experience life changing events. Loved how Moriarty made it really easy to connect to each sister. It starts with a major event but then ends in such a reassuring manner. This great for anyone who is needing a little pick me up55

There really isn’t anything to like about the book. The storyline, characters, and the back and forth in the book are annoying. If you have low expectations in loyalty, faithfulness, and trustworthiness, you may like this book. I expect more of the people in my circle so this book was not for me.15

Enjoyable Story!4 star

Three Wishes is a very enjoyable romp about a set of triplets. It has funny moments, sad ones, and tender, as well as touching ones. I liked the three sisters, and I wanted everything to work out well for all of them. Gemma and Lynn were my favorite characters, and I found it more difficult to warm up to Cat, although I wanted the best for her too. While not my favorite by Moriarty, I did thoroughly enjoy it, and am very glad to have read this one.45

Perky too

I had read 3 other books by this author before reading this one and did not realize it was her first novel. It is definitely a "chick lit" but never-the-less a very entertaining story. Moriarty has a great sense of humor and all of her characters are a bit flawed, but lovable and interesting. An easy and fun read.55
