Review of ONE WISH by Robyn Carr

#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr delivers another smart, funny, emotional novel about the complexities of life in the small Oregon town of Thunder Point 

Grace Dillon was a champion figure skater until she moved to Thunder Point to escape the ruthless world of fame and competition. And though she's proud of the quiet, self-sufficient life she's created running a successful flower shop, she knows something is missing. Her life could use a little excitement. 

In a community where there are few eligible singles, high school teacher Troy Headly appoints himself Grace's fun coach. When he suggests a little companionship with no strings attached, Grace is eager to take him up on his offer, and the two enjoy…getting to know each other. 

But things get complicated when Grace's past catches up with her, and she knows that's not what Troy signed up for. Faced with losing her, Troy realizes Grace is more than just a friend with benefits. He's determined to help her fight for the life she always wished for but never believed she could have—and maybe they can find real love along the way.


Grace moved to Thunder Point for a quiet life, one without the limelight of her skating career.  She wanted a life where no one knew of her past and she could be happy without the pressure of who she was.  Not only did she succeed, but she thrived.  She bought a flower shop and lived a life she was happy with, not expecting to fall in love. 

Troy was recovering from a broken heart and not looking for anything serious.  He knew Grace through a mutual friend and was drawn to her.  He loved spending time with her and just being himself.  The last thing he wanted was a serious relationship, he just wanted to have fun.  However, the last thing expected was to fall for the beauty who owed the local flower shop. 

Soon the quite life they enjoyed together is ripped apart by Grace’s past.  The last thing they expected was for Grace’s mother to come back into her life and change everything.  However, the challenges don’t end there and Troy is forced to decide if he can handle a relationship with Grace, or walk away from it all. 

Can Grace come to terms with her mother’s illness?  Can Troy come to terms with Grace’s past and all it entails?  Will Troy realize that there are worse things in life than the love a great woman or will he lose it all?  This was such a wonderful book that sucked you in right from the beginning and kept you turning the pages.  I loved the struggles of Grace and Troy and seeing how they dealt with them.  Grace is a stronger woman than she realizes and I was so happy that she was able to find happiness.  Troy was wonderful as well and I loved how he redeemed himself at the end.  I highly recommend this read to all Robyn Carr fans, you will not be disappointed!
