Book Description: Charlotte Wells does not date. After surviving a broken engagement, she’s taken a leave of absence from the social scene. So when her best friend and coworker, Jack, challenges her to get back in the game, she’s not so sure she’s ready to play. But ultimately, curiosity gets the best of her, and Charlotte accepts the daunting challenge: she will attempt to have fifty first dates in her effort to find “the one.” Unfortunately, she quickly realizes that the dating pool mostly holds clown fish as she goes on one lousy outing after another. Without a good man in sight as summer ends, Charlotte cuts her losses and sets her sights on a fun-filled trip to her cousin’s destination wedding in Brazil.
Brazil is a land of beautiful sights and delicious offerings—including Max, the charming brother of her cousin’s new husband. Max has all the makings of a Prince Charming in soccer cleats, and Charlotte’s happily ever after seems to be within reach. But love is a funny thing, and soon Charlotte finds herself wondering: could it be that her true love has been right in front of her all along?
My thoughts: Be careful what you wish for! Wishes may come true and turn into the unexpected.
Charlotte and Jack are best friends and adorable. They are platonic, but you know that they shouldn't be. They are a perfect fit. But their relationship has never headed in that direction.
Charlotte's love life has been a disaster and she is reluctant to jump back into the dating scene. She would rather wallow in misery than put herself out there to have her heart broken. She make three wishes on a bracelet and her life changes. She takes a chance, even traveling to Brazil for a relatives wedding.
The moral of the story is that sometimes the best things are right in front of you. It takes a little searching, and you realize what you have when you look somewhere else.
The characters are cute and people that you wish that you had in your life. I felt as if I could get to know them in real life. I enjoyed reading of Charlotte's dating adventures. The plot deals with two religious people, so religion comes into play in the book. This is a fun, cute novel that helps you escape your own cares and worries for a short time.

About the Author: (Taken from Goodreads) I grew up in St. George, Utah, where a lot of my family still lives, but now reside with my husband and family in the Salt Lake City area. My favorite thing to do is support my kids in their many interests. Between basketball, ballet and piano lessons we squeeze a lot into a week, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
