Description: 

The hilarious sequel to A Wish For Jinnie! Best read in order.

Jo Milligan’s café — A Bit of Crumpet — is her pride and joy.
But icing cakes and baking pastries in the sleepy Scottish village of Cranley isn’t hitting the sweet spot.

Jo longs for some excitement in her life. The arrival of gruff stranger Harvey Quinn doesn’t fill her with joy. Nor does the appearance of an unlikely assistant with an unexpected gift … and a serious attitude problem.

Genie Aaliyah grants Jo three wishes, but coming up with ideas proves challenging.

As Jo grows closer to Cranley’s newest resident, secrets threaten to derail their relationship.

Can Jo find a way to cook up a happy ending, or do the ingredients add up to a recipe for disaster?

Review:

I want to thank Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the invite for this tour and the author for providing me with a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

So I read A Wish For Jinnie, the first in the Cranley wishes series, back in 2020 and I got my wish for a sequel! A Wish for Jo can be read as a standalone. I would recommend reading the first book too.

A Wish for Jo is a rom com with a supernatural twist in the form of Aaliyah, the genie who grants three wishes to Jo, the put-upon owner of A Bit of Crumpet. She’s a bit fed up with everything and doesn’t take kindly to her annoying new ‘assistant’ Aaliyah, but then a new resident of Cranley, Harvey, comes into her cafe. He’s gruff and unfriendly, but something in her feels a bit sorry for him. With the help of Aaliyah and Harvey, can Jo find her happiness again? 

A Wish for Jo is a fun and light-hearted novel, a nice bit of escapism in these trying times.

I felt for poor Harvey, losing his beloved wife, then his career. It’s little wonder he’s in the state that he was! I didn’t warm to Jo as much as I did the character of Jinnie. I found Jo a bit curmudgeonly at times, but I enjoyed her comebacks and sharp wit.

The chemistry between Jo and Harvey really made this story. They get off to a rocky start, but seeing the slow build of attraction between them was lovely to read.

The secondary characters were well developed and a bit quirky, which is always entertaining. I adored Jinnie’s grandmother Wilma, who may have only had a few moments in the story, but she was a bit of a scene stealer!

A Wish for Jo is an enjoyable Rom Com full of sweet moments and quirky characters that will give you warm fuzzy feelings from beginning to end.
