Publisher's Summary

Three sisters, one birthday, one little problem...

The three Kettle sisters have had a mortifying mishap. Their raucous, champagne-soaked birthday dinner has come to an abrupt end following a violent argument and an emergency dash to the hospital.

So who started it this time? Was it angry, hurt Cat, still recovering from the 'night of the spaghetti'? Was it Lyn, so serenely successful, at least on the outside? Or was it quirky, dreamy Gemma, the sister who can't keep a secret except for the most important one of all?

©2003 Liane Moriarty (P)2015 Bolinda

What the Critics Say

"I adored Three Wishes...fresh, very, very funny...also intelligent and unsentimental about family dynamics." (Marian Keyes)

    "Delicious"

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book - as I do most of Liane Moriarty's work. Her characters are very believable. I also enjoy that this book is set in Sydney suburbs that I am familiar with. Maybe not high literature but simply a delight. Caroline Lee's narration is the perfect fit. Hope to enjoy more from this team.

    "Family life"

    Extremely enlightening are the twists and turns of family challenges with multiple births. I love the humour encluded.
    I love how Gemma the ditsy triplet turns out to be quite clever at other aspects while very clumsy at life skills. I love her Don't sweat the Small Stuff way of life.
    Nanna Kettle reminds me of my own mother.
    Such a great story to listen too.

    "Love Liane Moriarty's books!"
    Any additional comments?

    Have listened or read all Liane Moriarty's books and find them very addictive stories. The characters are all so real and the life is so contemporary and Australian that you can easily identify with the situations and the personalities involved. I often find myself laughing out loud at some parts and feeling pangs of sadness at others. Liane's novels are highly entertaining. Just can't wait for the next!

    "Nice story, relatable, serious and humourous."
    Would you listen to Three Wishes again? Why?

    No, im not one to read books twice.


    What other book might you compare Three Wishes to, and why?

    The husbands secret- obviously the same author. Similar sarcastic humour which I enjoy and the over the top characters.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    When the 'other women' walks in on Christmas lunch.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. It was quite addictive, the characters were so well written I felt like I knew them personally.


    Any additional comments?

    Lovely read. I enjoy Liane Moriartry's writing a lot.

    Little bit crazy but prefer the term eccentric. I am a recluse by nature so I live for my books and the friends I find within their pages.

    "Great story, well told, fun and interesting"

    Liane Moriarty is a great author because so far she always delivers the goods. Well thought out story lines, characters you become invested in and enough twists to keep you interested. Not all will be best sellers like Big Little Lies, but they are definitely worth a read.

    "A little slow to get going"

    Took a while to get into the story as it felt like quite a long build. Nice read when it got there. Not to much actually happened though.

    "her first novel..."

    This is her first novel and it is not nearly as good as the following books. I read this one last and did not enjoy it much. I absolutely love all her other books! Especially 1. What Alice forgot and 2. Big little lies. In comparison with those later books, Three Wishes cant measure up.

    What did you love best about Three Wishes?

    The characters are fabulous and funny. The storyline was pretty intense and it just kept getting bigger.


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lee – was your favorite?

    Caroline Lee brings all the characters to life with her voice acting. She is brilliant.

    "Disappointing."
    What did you like best about Three Wishes? What did you like least?

    I really battled to finish this book. The storyline is weak and lacks drama and suspense. I normally love Liane Moriarty's books so I was hugely disappointed I was not to be able to "get into" this one. I found the triplets too self-obsessed and void of character.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Liane Moriarty again?

    Yes, I've thoroughly enjoyed all her other books.

    "Returned!!"

    I had to listen to the prologue about 3 times before I could fully understand what was going on! It may have been easier to follow in the physical book.

    Found the narrators voice too grating and annoying, there was no difference between any of the characters

    "Another gem from Liane Moriarty"

    This is the 4th book I've listened to from this author and again I was not disappointed.
    The characters established themselves very early on and are believable, likeable and funny and I found myself invested in finding out what happened to them.
    The only parts I found slightly confusing were those told from an onlookers perspective. Perhaps it was because it was an audio book with no visual clue in the text to indicate the departure from the protagonists view but once I'd cottoned on to the format it added additional insight.
    As always, Caroline Lee read wonderfully and I could listen to her narration all day. Well, perhaps apart from her attempt at an American accent, but she's wonderful so she's forgiven!
    Highly recommended for an escapist read/listen.

    "Compulsive!"
    Where does Three Wishes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the second of Liane Moriarty's books I've listened to and they have both been so completely absorbing that you feel as if you are part of the story. She writes about family in such an intimate way that you become a part of the family.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There are three sisters (triplets) in the story and they are all compelling but Gemma is particularly interesting and inspires a lot of compassion and admiration.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The story revolves around a scene in which the sisters have a spectacular row in a public place, which is both devastating and hysterical. The story is full of moments when you take a sharp intake of breath at the awful implications of what the family members say to each other.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Family, they just might kill you!


    Any additional comments?

    You won't be able to stop listening.

    If you could sum up Three Wishes in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting, funny, different


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the book. I have read all of Liane Moriarty's books, They are not run of the mill 'chic-lit' they are far more than that. The storylines' of each of the triplets are each interesting in their own way. I liked Gemma. However, I could not warm to Lin or Kat I thought they were very cold, opinionated and arrogant women. The book jumps backward and forward in time and can sometimes get a bit confusing, but still keeps you on the edge, wanting to know the outcome of each scenario. A great book to listen to - the narrator is excellent too.
    I'm looking forward to the next book by Liane Moriarty!! Hurry up please!!

    "A great story"
    What made the experience of listening to Three Wishes the most enjoyable?

    The unravelling and analysis of relationships during the story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Three Wishes?

    The beginning


    What does Caroline Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    She is an excellent narrator - very listenable


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Never underestimate the quiet one.......


    Any additional comments?

    The little bits of commentary on situations over time by people outside the story detracted from it a bit but otherwise very compelling listen and interesting twists as expected from this author

    "Another cracker from this author/narrator combo"
    Any additional comments?

    I love Liane Moriarty's books, and Caroline Lee is the perfect narrator for them. The stories are witty, entertaining and funny with plenty of twists, and the characters are engaging and believable, with plenty of colour and depth. Great for a holiday or travel listen. My only criticism - Caroline Lee needs to brush up on her non-Australian accents, some of which were fairly shocking!
