Wish Me Tomorrow

Wish Me TomorrowWish Me Tomorrow by Karen Rock
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a free copy of this book from the author.

Here's a plotline. Man and woman meet each other. There is some initial attraction, but they don't see it right away. As they continue to go out together, the love starts to grow. At some point, though, one of them decides to break it off. Both of them wind up devastated, until the magical reunion at the end when they realize they were meant to be together. Then they live happily ever after. This is the basic plotline of the book. It's also the plotline of almost every Hallmark Channel movie.

As soon as I started to read this, I had a good idea what would happen. Christine is a nurse who works with cancer patients. She runs a support group for cancer survivors. Eli brings in John, a cancer patient. Eli is also a cancer survivor with 2 kids, Becca and Tommy. At that point, I knew they would get together. And since this was the Harlequin Heartwarming series, I also knew the sex scenes would be nonexistent.

So why is this 4 stars? Because it's not the exact plotline, it's how the author uses it. I'm not sure if the author is a cancer nurse, or has a family member with cancer, but she writes with a sense of authority. She describes the patients well, as well as the 2 kids. She does a lot with the feelings between Eli and Christine, and how Christine comes to bond with the kids. I don't want to give away too much of the ending, but it is happy. All in all, a good book.
