wish you were here review

“He taught me that one way to give your life meaning is to teach another person how to look within and love.” 

Charlotte’s (Charlie) life is a hot mess. She’s had several jobs and weird boyfriends. Charlie has a pretty bad track record. Until, she runs into Adam. A stranger on the street and the duo have an instant connection. Charlie falls in love with his spontaneity. But after their whirlwind of a night, Adam ghosts Charlie. Months later, Charlie is still hanging on to him. Will she be able to find out what happened after their magical night together or will she finally be able to move forward and find her HEA?

WOW. What a story packed with feelings! I honestly think it’s best to go in blind. Helen and Charlotte’s friendship had me cackling gleefully. Adam will make readers swoon. You will smile at how oblivious Adam is to his own charm. He is precious, all doe-eyed, and unassuming. Joyful and buoyant. Wish You Were Here is painfully sad but also moving and life-affirming. I ugly cried through several chapters. WRECKED. I’m talking snot and sobs. I had to remind myself to breathe because I was holding my breath to avoid crying. Plan on being inconsolable an hour after reading this book. Grab a mug of warm tea to coat your sore throat. Such a tragic but beautiful, heartrending love story with a ✨ happily ever after ✨. Renee Carlino’s novel is contemporary women’s (new adult) fiction with mature themes and emotional triggers to be aware of. Reader, don’t shy away from this story! Charlie is resilient and her character growth is sensational. Marvelous. Stunning. Renee, dear author, you are truly a gifted storyteller. If you enjoyed Confess by Colleen Hoover and A Walk To Remember by Nicholas Sparks, then Wish You Were Here will leave an imprint on your hopeless romantic heart.
