Erin Hollister is waiting for her big break—or even a small one. She's been dumped by her boyfriend, canned by her employer and it doesn't seem that her dream of making it on Broadway will come true either. But then she's given a lantern—complete with genie!—and it looks as if a little magic may be in store….
That is, if she can decide what to wish for. There's the rub. Career? Family? Love life? Even a charismatic genie can grant only so many wishes. Or maybe Erin should just hold on to all those magical chances and think about what might be (instead of seeing just what's under her nose).
Time's running out. Ultimately, it's Erin who must decide how to keep the magic alive—forever.
(Terra's Thoughts) I love Mindy Klasky! It's funny as I'm not into chick lit but this author writes in a way that no matter who you are you will surely chuckle if not down right laugh out loud with some of the antics. I think this is her best so far.
Erin is our heroine and oh what a poor dear she is. She thinks she pregnant so her boyfriend up and departs, she loses her job, has no money and worst of all has a know it all sister who happens to be somewhat of a pest.
Erin ends up being in the right place at the supposed right time and is asked to baby sit this really gorgeous upper side New York apartment for a year. Rent free mind you but little does she know that it comes with a catch. Hey nothing really wonderful is ever really free is it?
Well a surprise Genie who changes genders like one changes their clothes, three wishes that our comical genie needs to grant make it OCD about getting to it and poor Erin who doesn't want to make the wrong wishes decides that she needs to think about all of this make for a hysterical array of events.
To tell the truth, if I were Erin I would want to throttle our beloved Genie too. Oh why can't anything ever be easy and why do hunky men need to have strings attached and baggage? Sheesh!
I'm sure you'll love this book as much as I have if you like a light really funny read. Mindy Klasky writes ultra smoothly, with class and a smart ass attitude that will please the most discerning taste. Just be careful you don't have a mouthful of liquid when reading as you might just find yourself either choking or spitting it out as you laugh. These types of books are great with comfy clothes and chocolate.
