Genre: Romantic Comedy
Publication date: June 22, 2020
I had great fun reading this book with a twist on the concept of a “genie in a lamp.” Dhassim, the genie, made me laugh so much with his antics. He has an interesting wish-sensing gadget that runs on WIFI–much like our modern-day mobile devices.
A Wish for Jinnie is a story about love, friendship, and a community so tight-knit that it’s almost family. I prefer quiet towns/villages to bustling cities and I liked the sound of Cranley with its little shops and homely feeling.
Jinnie Cooper has a heart of gold and her actions for the people of Cranley almost made me tear up. Her bad experience with her ex-boyfriend Mark does not make her bitter towards other people, even though he left her practically destitute. Her kindness endears her to a lot of people in the village, including two very eligible men!
Jinnie’s grandmother is such a fun-loving woman in her seventies–so full of life–that I want to be just like that when I get to that age.
The story is well-paced, alternating between funny and heartwarming, until it comes to a happy ending for everyone involved.
Thank you to the author and Rachel for my review copy!
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?
