A Wish For Jinnie
by Audrey Davis
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 quirky little rom-com this was! Jinne Cooper has moved to a little sleepy Scottish village near Edinburgh to start a fresh after being dumped by her boyfriend. With not much money to her name or a job she ends up getting work in the towns antiques shop, where she picks up some bits and pieces for her new home. Little does she know that the old lamp she picked up is about to turn her life upside down, when a Genie called Dhassim appears before her very eyes whilst she is cleaning the lamp!
Dhassim was a funny character, he was not used to the modern world and see him navigate it was highly amusing, Jinne is a selfless character and when she is armed with the ability to have wishes granted she comes up short and instead uses some to help others in the village.
There is a whole host of characters within this story, and I really would have loved them to have more page time – Jo and Angela especially and maybe there is perhaps a story waiting there for them to come?
This was a quirky feel good rom-com featuring ordinary people with real live struggles mixed with the magical that comes from Dhassim.
4 star read for me.
