Wish Upon A Star by Jim Cangany Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway


Wish Upon A Star
North Star Trilogy #3
Author: Jim Cangany
Release Date: October 17, 2014

Annie and E.J. are on top of the world. Her concert world tour as Cassandra Lawrence was a smashing success and they've just announced their engagement to the world. Now that they're settled in at Annie's Northern California estate, it's time to relax and enjoy life. Until E.J. gets a call from her with news that's as devastating as it is unbelievable.

Annie has breast cancer.

Their love is tested in unimaginable ways as chemotherapy robs Annie of her health and her hair, but not hope. She holds on to the hope of beating the cancer and marrying the man she loves. While the key for Annie is to hold onto that hope, their future together may be lost forever unless E.J. can learn to let go. For its not until he can learn to forgive himself and let go of the guilt that haunts him that he can truly move forward and be the man Annie needs him to be.

Will the chemotherapy, mastectomy and radiation be enough to help Annie beat the cancer? Will E.J. face down the demons that haunt his past in time to save their love? Will they ever get that happily ever after Annie so desperately wants? While trust and faith in each other has gotten them this far, they'll need one more thing to make it to their finish line--hope.

My Review

Annie and E.J.'s relationship is going strong. 
 Finally, after the struggles they have endured, things are going great and they are extremely happy.


Yes, the dreaded C-word.  Annie has breast cancer. 

No one deserves a happy ending more than Annie and E.J. Their love has been tested to the limits.  With the support of friends that have become their family, Annie and E.J. have a rough road ahead, not just physically, but mentally.

E.J. is struggling to stay strong.  It is devastating to him to watch the pain that his North Star is going through.  However at times, E.J. doesn't know if he can stay strong and supportive, having his own struggles to work through. He never shows Annie his worries or heartache.  Annie sees E.J.'s determination to stay strong, but also sees right through his facade.   No one understands this more than Annie. She brings to light what E.J. doesn't want to accept, which later proves to strengthen their relationship even more.

Wish Upon a Star brings the North Star series to a close.  Oh how I am going to miss Annie and E.J.'s fun bickering and amazing love story. 

However, this third installment in the series brings the whole romance up a notch with Annie's breast cancer.  Proving that LOVE does conquer all. Annie has determination and an incredible spirit to accept this diagnosis.  Of course she has her moments of despair, but she pulls through it like the rock star that she is. 

I had No doubt about their love surviving through the toughest struggle of their life. Jim Cangany pours his heart and soul into this story.  For this author to put so much realistic emotion into this story, and open himself up to share his own experiences, is truly incredible.

Wish Upon a Star has all the right ingredients for a romance novel that will take over your senses...unforgettable characters, simple setting, and a real to life plot. It is a gem that you do not want to slip past your fingers.
