A New York Times bestseller, Three Wishes is the funny, heartwarming and completely charming first novel from Liane Moriarty, also the author of #1 New York Times bestsellers The Husband's Secret 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 seem to 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.

I just love Liane Moriarty's books. Her writing style is light and funny and just draws you in. This book was no exception. Interesting characters and a captivating story. I am going to try and read her entire collection!

This is probably my favourite Liane Moriarty book. Moriarty is an expert at the nitty gritty of personal relationships. I love when an author can put into words the things I think I am the only one to feel.

I was so disappointed with this book. I love Liane Moriarty's books, but I found this one to be predictable and somewhat facile, with a host of unlikeable characters. Really hoping she returns to her previous formula with her next book.

It was pretty good. Not my favourite. I prefer Carole Matthews or Katie Fford. Much wittier. Still, it got better as it went on. I'm not likely going to read any of her other books.

This author is one of my favourites but I found the style of writing in this book annoying to read.

This book was great because of Moriarty's humor. It was not my favorite story of hers, plot wise, but as usual her characters are loveable and humorous. Totally worth the read.

This was a funny yet poignant story about three sisters. How growing up triplets affected their entire lives - that even though they were very close they had many secrets that they never shared. Interesting to see how their lives were so different from each others Made you laugh in many of the situations, yet felt sadness in others. Very enjoyable read. I have enjoyed all of this authors books and now awaiting her newest one.

I had a lot of fun with this book, especially since it's about sisters and their love/hate relationships with each other. I actually listened to the audio version, so I enjoyed the Aussie accents along with the setting. Definitely put it on your list if you are in the mood for a light and entertaining read.

I can't believe how many people want to read this book. I didn't get to finish it. Cat's attitude drives me nuts. Oh, well! I'll find another one of her books and read it.

Liane Moriarty never disappoints. This tale about triplets and their lives is a page turner.
