Review: When You Wish by Alexandra Ivy

May Contain Spoilers

Review by Poo Penny

This is a complication of the three stories in the Cresswell Sisters series.  Each of the Cresswell’s respond differently to being the daughter of the renowned jewel thief, the Devilish Dandy, and while I found each of their stories cute and unique is parts, ultimately I felt like the leading men in all 3 stories were basically the same.

If you are looking for 3 very cute, PG rated romances, look no further than this novel. Maybe if I had read each of these stories separately, instead of back to back I would have appreciated them more. My favorite sister was Rachel Cresswell in The Wedding Wish. I like Rachel’s attitude and demeanor towards people, as well as her playful interactions with Mr. Clarke. However, my favorite leading man would have been Lord Hartshore from The Valentine Wish.

Grade:  3 stars

About the book:

Dear Reader,
Long before I wrote my sexy paranormal romances, I wrote traditional Regency romances as Debbie Raleigh. Now I’m thrilled that three of my favorites are available once more. As fresh and filled with adventure as ever, this trilogy features the indomitable Creswell sisters, known throughout London as the Devil’s Daughters—and rejected by the ton because of it. But like their charming rascal of a father, the Devilish Dandy, nothing can crush their spirits—or stand in the way of their hearts’ desires…


Sarah Cresswell leads a peaceful life—until she’s asked to help a handsome nobleman unearth a thief. Soon the unlikely duo is navigating London’s seamy side—and an undeniable attraction. But it’s a love that can never be, unless intervention comes from a most unexpected source…
Emma Cresswell has escaped gossip-plagued London to start anew as a lady’s companion. She does not expect to contend with her employer’s reckless nephew. But Cedric, Lord of Hartshore, senses that beneath Emma’s conservative veneer is a heart as passionate as his own—and he’s determined to win it…
On a lark, flirtatious Rachel Cresswell plots to seduce the man intended for her sheltered young cousin, Julia. Her success is no surprise, but she’s shocked to fall in love with her unwitting conquest—and strike up a friendship with Julia. Now Rachel is determined to keep her scheming secret from them both. But has she lost her taste for mischief in time to gain what means most to her?
I’ve fallen for these timeless tales all over again, and believe that you will too.
