Book Description:

Nothing can change the fact the Olivia Larsen’s twin sister, Violet, is gone… Until a mysterious, beautiful gown arrives on her doorstep. The dress doesn’t look magical- it is magical. It has the power to grant her one wish, and the only thing Olivia wants is her sister back.

Olivia’s wish will be granted.

With Violet again by her side, both girls get a second chance at life. And as the sisters soon discover, they have two more dresses and two more wishes left.

reviews plate copyI enjoyed reading this book, but felt that it lacks the punch of many other new releases I have been reading. I found this book to be a quick read; even though it lacked the intensity that I desire. Wish’s innocence and care free feeling is better for the younger reading generation.

I just read this and I agree with your review. Definitely lacking something to put this one over the top. Well put!
