Happy Monday all!
What would you do if a genie gave you three wishes? This was a fun heartwarming story with a sprinkling of magic! ✨
A Wish For Jinnie
What if wishes really could come true?
When Jinnie Cooper is dumped by her fiancé, and exiled to a job in an antiques shop in a sleepy Scottish village, little does she know a battered old lamp is about to shake up her life.
Genie Dhassim grants wishes. But he also wants a few of his own to come true. Letting him explore the outside world proves nerve-wracking as Dhassim has an uncanny knack of putting his pointy-slippered foot in it.
As Jinnie grows closer to her employer Sam, Dhassim discovers his time on earth is running out.
Can both Jinnie and Dhassim find true happiness? Or are those wishes that cannot be granted?
What a treat! This is a fun uplifting tale with a generous peppering of magic. If you had three wishes what would they be? Jinie Heads to a small Scottish Village after having lost her job and her man. Convinced that her life is cursed with a string of bad luck she does not know what to think when she finds a battered lamp. Especially when gregarious, lively, Spice Girl loving Dhassin pops out. *insert theme song to I Dream of Jeannie* What follows is a fantastic story of friendship and love. The story also addresses some tougher subject matter such as dementia and alcohol abuse, but Audrey Davis does it with a gentle and loving hand. Jinnie is a lovely character who I was cheering for throughout the book. This charming Scottish village made me want to risk it all and take a trip to Scotland. All the secondary characters were so vivid and delightful. This was the perfect book to escape into as the world continues to go crazy around me. Heartwarming and hopeful!
