I Wished For You is the eagerly awaited second novel from Amy Huberman whose debut, Hello, Heartbreak, was a massive No 1 bestseller in 2010. Since then Amy has gone on to star in Comedy Central's Threesome and her fan-base is growing all the time. I Wished For You is the story of Grace who is at that age where there are six weddings a year and the question on everyone's lips is: who's next? She and her boyfriend Robbie seem the perfect fit, but when he unexpectedly goes down on bended knee, Grace freaks out. Cue the mother of all meltdowns. On top of that, Grace's passion for fashion is not exactly fulfilled by her job - dressing well-to-do ladies with way more money than style. Cue - in her addled state after the bended knee fiasco - losing it in work, with disastrous consequences. Into Grace's train-wreck of a life comes Verity - ex-Hollywood costume lady and vintage clothing queen. Verity is not called the Vintage Vixen for nothing: she has seen it all and done it all and her life makes Grace's look about as exciting as Songs of Praise. Verity tells Grace that the secret of happiness is to discover her 'heart wish'. If only Grace could work out what her heart's greatest wish really is ... Amy Huberman is both a star and a trendsetter, but as a writer she is blessed with an earthy, off-beat and irreverent sense of humour which makes her a gifted and original story teller. Praise for Hello, Heartbreak 'Will have you laughing out loud ... lovely' Cosmopolitan 'Witty, observant and very Bridget Jones-like, this brilliant read is thoroughly enjoyable' Closer magazine 'Like Jane Austen on ecstasy' Sunday Independent 'A funny romantic comedy ... like Bridget Jones on Viagra' Irish Daily Mail 'Fun, bubbly, gutsy and lively' U Magazine 'Tender, romantic and laugh aloud funny' Irish Examiner 'Sharp and sassy' Irish Tatler 'She can really write ... a deserved No 1' Irish Independent
