The first romance I ever read... would love to remember what it is and read it again for nostalgia. I stole it from my mom and read it at least 3 or 4 times.

The book is at least 15-20 years old. The plot was about a woman who was unhappy, overweight... she somehow got a wish and she wished to be skinny. (I don't remember how this wish came about, nor do I remember if she got more than 1 wish). She gradually started shrinking over a period of time until eventually she was skinny. The guy she was into started having issues with her when she became skinny, because he didn't like the way she was changing and loved her just how she was before. That's all I remember.

I don't think it was a very well written book (if I remember correctly, could be wrong).. but would love to read it again.

It sounds like Wishes by Jude Deveraux. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/50805.Wishes

That is who I was thinking as well Willa. Melissa was this a historical, because Wishes is historical. It could be Susan Donovan's He Loves Lucy ...maybe.

Hi! I looked and I do think this is what it is. I've ordered it so I will see.. I do remember there was a mean sister involved, but I couldn't remember what time period. Thanks so much everyone!
