Review: Wish You Were Here by Renee Carlino

I’m finding it difficult to write a review on this book.  I had a lot of feelings crop up throughout the book and my overall thoughts on the book changed a couple times while reading.  The thing is, I can’t share the details of those thoughts and feelings without spoiling parts of the book for you.

This book captivated me throughout.  I was completely enveloped in the story while reading and couldn’t wait to get back to it when I wasn’t.

The story was really good.  I didn’t like everything and, like I said above, my thoughts about it changed throughout the book.  At some points I wasn’t happy with the way things were going, but then at the end I’m satisfied with the story.  I wished certain things didn’t play out how they did, but then it all came together in the end and I realize it had to play out that way.  I hope I haven’t said too much.

The characters were all a little “out there” or “kooky,” which was interesting.  It was at times a bit much, but they are all lovable characters.

I thought the ending was pretty predictable, but I didn’t mind too much.

I give this book a solid 3.5 rating and would recommend this book to fans of the genre.

Charlotte has spent her twenties adrift, floating from interest to interest, job to job, and guy to guy, searching for a spark but never quite finding it. All she knows is that she won’t discover it working as a waitress at a pies-and-fries joint in Los Angeles or living with her fun but aimless best friend in a tiny apartment in the Arts District.

Then Charlotte collides with Adam, a gorgeous and soulful painter who seems just as lost as she feels. Their instant connection turns into a midnight drink… and a whirlwind night of champagne, Chinese food, and the kind of conversation that only happens in romantic comedies. But the next morning, Adam gives Charlotte the cold shoulder, leaving her confused and hurt—and wondering if the few odd moments between them the night before were red flags in disguise.

Months later, Charlotte hasn’t been able to shake Adam, so she decides to find out what happened the morning after their magical night together. This fateful decision rewrites their wild love story, but what Charlotte doesn’t know yet is that the ending has already been written.
