Talia Green appears to have it all. She is a successful wedding coordinator, has a seemingly flawless relationship with her boyfriend Xander, and is a popular social media influencer who shares her perfect life online. But when she walks in on Xander with another woman, her entire world comes crashing down - LIVE! Heartbroken and humiliated, Talia returns to her family's home for the holidays, hoping to hide away from everyone. As she navigates the familiar traditions of Hanukkah and reconnects with her family, Talia embarks on a journey of self-discovery and healing. And when she runs into Daniel Cohen, her childhood rival, at a Hanukkah party, new feelings ignite like the candles on a menorah.

 

Daniel has always been Talia's polar opposite. Their rivalry dates back to their school days, when they were often stuck together at family events, and competed for academic excellence in all their classes. Yet Daniel is no longer the quiet, self-conscious, awkward boy Talia remembers. As they spend more time together, Talia is inexplicably drawn to him. Together, they discover a deep connection rooted in their past. And the box Talia finds in the back of her closet containing a gift from her beloved grandmother helps her realize what is truly important in life, and teachers her the meaning of family, love, and Hanukkah.

 

Set against the backdrop of the Festival of Lights, Eight Wishes is a heartwarming tale that explores the power of second chances, the transformative nature of family and tradition, and the promise of new love.
