Review: Wishful Kisses by Krista Lakes

How do you convince the man you love to believe the impossible?
Poor Kimberly has spent her entire life pining for a man that will never return her affections. After spending a fantastic week in the summer of 1990 together, handsome and charming Tony Frontera made a promise that he would return to Kim after Operation Desert Storm. Unfortunately, he broke that promise when he was killed in action.

Kim spent the next two decades trying to fill the hole that he left in her life, but it never happened. Despite a rewarding career, she never found true happiness, the happiness that she should have had with Tony...

When the Fountain of Love suddenly grants her deepest wish, she finds herself back in 1990 in her old body, able to change the hand that fate dealt her. However, the power of the fountain is limited- in order to change Tony's fate, she must do the impossible. Although she had dreamt about saving Tony, she never thought about how she would do it. With only your words, how do you convince your soul mate that you are from the future? How do you tell them to abandon their country and leave everyone they know behind?

Terri's Thoughts

I was looking for a fun short read and I stumbled across this one in the kindle store and I thought I would give it a try.  I am glad I did.

This appears to be a part of a series of books in the Kisses series by Krista Lakes.  From what I can tell the other stories may be full length however this one was a nice short novella.

In 85 pages we see Kimberly and Tony fall in love and then Kimberly remember Tony twenty years later after his death.  The reader then gets to see Kimberly try to change the past by going back in time so that Tony does not die.  For the short length I thought it was well done.

This story in my opinion could have worked very well as a full length novel as the concept had numerous opportunities that could have been explored.  What it did manage to achieve for me was generate some interest in the rest of the series to see if they were the same idea.  I am not sure if the others are similar but I feel the need to check it out.
