Title: Maddy's Star
Series: Wishing Star, #1
Author: Kate Rosebrook
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

Three women. Three stars. Three wishes. 

 When three friends make wishes on their piece of the metal Wishing Star, they start to see their dreams come true. But they don’t know about the supernatural power behind the star, or the deadline to return each piece before their lives are overcome with danger.

 Maddy returns to Serenity Falls ten years after throwing her piece of the metal Wishing Star over the Falls, trying to get her life back together. When her past returns to haunt her, she and her friends worry there was more to their wishes than they thought. Maddy sees her fiancé even though he’s dead. Nightmares of her abusive father become reality. And soon she discovers she has to recover her piece of the star to make the danger stop. 

 Riley falls for Maddy soon after she returns, but can’t seem to get her to open up to him. All he knows for sure is something is happening to her—a supernatural chain of events she can’t seem to stop. Once he learns about the Wishing Star, he’ll do whatever it takes to help the woman he’s falling in love with, and save her from the threat facing her and her friends.

Review Copy

Maddy's Star begins with Maddy on her way back to the town she left behind so many years ago. It holds the key to when she met her best friends Kara, and Grace. And also when all three friends decided to make three wishes with a "wishing star." Now as Maddy's back to stay for good strange things start happening to her. She's seeing messages about how she shouldn't be there. And she keeps seeing people who are suppose to be dead. Not only that she and her friends all feel like it is something to do with the wishing star. Now all three of them are working hard to figure out what's going on. Along the way they include Riley, Grace's brother, and his friends Elliot and Nathan. Riley also has feelings for Maddy, so this book adds some romance in with all of this wishing star business.

 I have to say over all the book was okay. I loved the story that was very good. And all of the characters were awesome. Well except I didn't really care for Grace too much. But other than that I did like reading it. It was a fun, easy read that was written very well. I just felt like something was missing when I read it. Other than that I did like the book, and I may continue reading more in this series as well.
