    1. I am so happy that Harlequin has a new line that is *clean*!! There are some sizzling kisses, but that's as far as it goes. Christie is a grief counselor. I love her little dog buddy, Sweet Pea--they make such a great team. I thought Christie came off so competent at what she does. At first, I would never have guessed that she has fears to overcome. But as the story progresses, she becomes more human, seeming to mask her insecurities and fears with a very dedicated and driven career. I love how [...]


    2. As a long time Harlequin author, I've had a secret weapon in my plotting arsenal my creative, talented sister-in-law, Karen. It is with great pleasure that I recommend her first Harlequin Heartwarming to you, because she's brought all her beautiful storytelling skills to the page in WISH ME TOMORROW, a romance that you will remember long after you close the book. Tender and touching, WISH ME TOMORROW is a compelling story of love, loss and hopefulness.


    3. What a fantastic read! I loved it, loved it, loved it!! Christie was strong, capable, and kind. Eli was broken, but still doing his best as a single dad. Just looking at the cover makes my heart flutter!I'm a fairly picky reader, and I'm very character driven. I think it's because I'm such a people person. My ideal book is one where you feel intense longing to be with that one special person. I want to feel like I'm there. I want to see what the characters are seeing, smell their coffee when the [...]


    4. I’d been dying to read Wish Me Tomorrow after being introduced to Karen Rock’s writing in Camp Rock she and Joanne Rock co-authored, so I was very excited when the opportunity arose. Before I go on, let me just stipulate that Camp Rock is YA contemporary romance, whilst Wish Me Tomorrow is adult romance. However, fear not if you like your romance clean, as that’s exactly what this latest release by Karen Rock is.Now, I’d seen comments dotted about the internet prior to heading in that Wi [...]


    5. This was my first read by this author. And I have to say right off this is and was a very emotional read for me. The book deals with cancer, and the battle that many people struggle with. Not only how cancer effects the patient but family members as well. I think the really hard part for me was I so related to the heroine in this book. I also lost a brother to Leukemia and his name was also Bill. Yes it brought back many memories. But some were so very fond. And I found myself not wanting to put [...]


    6. * ARC received in return for an honest reviewOmigod, what a deeply moving story!!!This is the worst BEST book I've read in a while. because I loved it and worst because I sobbed buckets. I sobbed from 87% in until the end and a good TEN minutes afterwards. When I say sob I mean real ugly crying at it's worstd, puffy, swollen eyes, blotchy face and a nose that refused to stop running, in short, a snot monster.I have to be honest and say that, only a few pages in I thought I was in for a depressin [...]


    7. This is the 1st book I read by Karen Rock. This book's story line was okay. I liked the beginning. I liked Christie's character. I liked how Christie helped Eli. I liked ending.


    8. First of all I have to say congratulations Karen! This is a beautiful story, I’m still a mess because I spent the last part of the book crying and that wasn’t pretty at all but yeah I got pretty emotional and it all comes down to what I said first this is very emotional, and amazing book, I’d definitely recommend everyone to read it.This is the first book I got to read that deals with cancer and it was all presented sensibly and respectfully. I normally avoid these books not because I don [...]


    9. I got a copy in exchange for an honest reviewOne of the most important reasons why I wanted to read this book is because I loved Camp Boyfriend by Karen and Joanne Rock and when I heard Karen was writing an adult book I just had to read it. When I picked up this book I read the first 19% in one sitting, because I couldn't put the books down, I got sucked into the story and finished the book in less than a day. While Wish me Tomorrow is really different than Camp Boyfriend it has the same addicti [...]


    10. Wish Me Tomorrow has a happy ending, but it's not a "feel-good" novel. It's something much better.Christie, the nurse who helps cancer patients through their treatment, has quite a bit of depth. She's funny, sometimes silly, but always full of love for those around her. Especially Eli and his kids. Although once or twice she began to veer into Mary Sue territory--she managed to fake out a respected chess player? Really?--for the most part she's very grounded, very cute, and now one of my favorit [...]


    11. Okay, so I’d been hearing a lot of great things about Karen Rock and her sister-in-law’s book titled Camp Boyfriend, but I never really got the chance to read it. Then I found out there was a blog tour for this novel, and considering it was written by Karen Rock, I jumped at the chance to sign up for it. I had high hopes for this book, and I find it safe to say that I wasn’t disappointed. I even had the impression that it was going to be this heavy tearjerker, seeing that it revolved aroun [...]


    12. This book is not an easy read due to the subject matter. But I guarantee if you take the time to read it you will come away smiling. Yes it will make you cry at parts, but the ending is just perfect.Christie Bates is a nurse and grief counsellor. During the story we discover why she took the career path she did. Several incidents in her past changed Christie, causing her to still suffer even now. But the care and advice she gives her patients is second to none. What she went through previously h [...]


    13. Wish Me Tomorrow is a beautifully told tale about love, fear, guilt, and forgiveness of self and others. Both Christie and Eli are very strong characters, and I loved that they weren’t perfect. They could be anybody you see, walking down the street right now. The depths to which they would go to handle their own fears, and provide a happy home for those they loved is very real. To me, Wish Me Tomorrow is purely character driven. Yes, the internal and external conflicts influence the plot, but [...]


    14. This book made me fall more in love with romance! Christie is a nurse and a grief counselor who works with kids who have cancer. She is superstitious and has to hold a rabbits foot to go on an elevator, yet she's very brave and even saves someone's life in the book by giving them medical help. Her therapy dog is so cute and comes with her when she makes her rounds, and that, combined with her optimistic outlook on life, helps many cancer patients. But that's not the case with Eli, a recovering o [...]


    15. Karen Rock's romantic tale of love, anger, and hope will capture your heart. The story doesn't pull any punches as it realistically portrays the problems involved in a cancer patient's life--and his family's.Eli Roberts, a handsome photographer who could melt almost any woman's heart, is in remission, but the problems his illness created aren't. His thirteen-year-old daughter is brilliantly portrayed by the author, making it evident that she's experienced with young teens, and understands their [...]

    17. Este livro foi me oferecido pela editora Harlequin e desde já fica aqui o meu agradecimento. Estive super indecisa sobre quantas * dar a esta historia, posso dizer que um livro que me desperte as emoções que este me fez sentir merece mais do que três estrelas, mas para mim o final em aberto foi algo que me fez recuar. Adorei a historia e tenho de dizer que esta me fez pensar imenso em certas fazes da minha vida em que o meu pai se encontrava gravemente doente. No entanto no final (view spoil [...]


    18. Read my review on RomanceJunkies by clicking on the link below. I rated it 4.5 stars when I reviewed it so upped it to a 5 on heremancejunkiesreviews/artm


    19. ** I got a copy in exchange for an honest review** It took me days, weeks, a month to feel and read the book. As it turned out, I wanted more from this book, from this author. Since this has been a different approach unlike the YA book Camp Boyfriend that Karen and Joanne wrote, I decided to give it a try and see how it goes with me. While in between classes, weekend marathons, catch-up reading has always been a must but is also hard time for me. Since I was into the story I really tried to take [...]


    20. This review also has a character interview on my blog. Check it out! Dizneeee's World of BooksHarlequin Heartwarmings indeed! Definitely heartwarming.Between the synopsis and the character interview, you can pretty much figure out what happens by the end of the book. And that's totally okay with me for this particular book! Reading Wish Me Tomorrow is more important for the journey of character development and connection than the outcome. Although, the outcome isheartwarming! (hah hah! Get it?) [...]


    21. Review coming soonlook for it during its BLOG TOUR!See my full review at Shaytasticbooks<>Like my Facebook PageBe prepared to fall in love with this book! Its a wonderful story about a man and a women who refuse to give into their wants for the shear reasoning of not wanting to hurt the other. Winding their way into each others heart could be an obstacle but kids and life are nothing compared to the threat of cancer.Eli has been in remission from Cancer, his wife has left him and he has tw [...]


    22. Christie is a nurse and grief counsellor. When Eli comes into her cancer support group meeting with his friend, John, in a wheelchair, at first Christie is annoyed with his cynical attitude. He finds her breezy optimism a tad irritating, too. But the chemistry is there. Then John has a stroke in the meeting and Christie handles the emergency with such confidence and skill, saving Eli’s friend’s life, that his interest in her is more than piqued.They meet again when Eli’s teenage daughter r [...]


    23. She vowed to care for support-group attendees. Falling for them, however, was not an option.Wish Me Tomorrow really snuck up on me and threw me off guard. I had no idea what to expect and was pleasantly surprised by this emotional romance. I found myself laughing, yelling, and crying throughout the pages. It isn’t often I cry from reading a book but there was no stopping the tears. It is a perfect example of finding hope during the dark days and learning to trust in others. The dialogue is ver [...]


    24. ARC received for an honest reviewBeware - Wish Me Tomorrow revolves a lot around cancer and cancer patients, so it is an emotional read. But if you take the time to read it, you will come out smiling, even though you will run the whole gamut of emotions, from happy to sad ,to rage to despair.Christie is a nurse and grief counsellor for cancer patients and survivors. She has also been touched by cancer, though she has never really dealt properly with her emotional struggles. But she is the eterna [...]

    26. I was really excited when I found this title on NetGalley. I'd seen the author on and seen a description of the book and I thought it was one I might like. You might be surprised to know that Harlequin Publishing has heartwarming line- completely sweet and clean romances. I have enjoyed many books in this line.Wish Me Tomorrow is an emotional book. Cancer is such a prevalent, horrible disease and I think we can all find connections to this book because of it. Eli has shored up his defenses in o [...]


    27. I received a free copy of this book from the author.Here's a plotline. Man and woman meet each other. There is some initial attraction, but they don't see it right away.

    29. This book was an emotional roller coaster that had me in tears so much I should invest in tissues! The writing was so true to real it had me in goose bumps. I enjoyed the characters, they were very well developed and very 3 dimensional, I just wanted to grab them all up and hold them close to my heart and keep them safe with me. My mother died of cancer in Dec of 2006, so I had a very personal relationship with the topic of cancer and surviving and wishing for just one more tomorrow. This book s [...]


    30. An ARC was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. To view the full review, visit fallinginfallI rated Wish Me Tomorrow with FOUR AND ONE HALF LEAVES! This book truly touched me. I work at a cancer hospital and see the effect of cancer not only on patients but patients families on a daily basis and this book shows a lot of what that is like. It is a very sad but also a life changing time. This was a great story that felt very real. Christie is a grief counselor and Eli is a canc [...]
