Date Published: 22nd June 2020
Genre: Romantic Comedy
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?

I want to thank Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on this tour and Audrey Davis for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have been in a funk recently but when I picked up A Wish For Jinnie it cheered me right up!
As a child I had a bit of a love for all things genie. I used to watch repeats of a show called I Dream Of Jeannie and the Disney movie Aladdin, so when I saw the blurb for this book I thought yes I need to read that.
Jinnie wants a fresh start after her disaster of a relationship so she moves to the small town of Cranley. What she doesn’t bank on is finding her very own genie in a lamp! Will he help her find happiness or make her life into more of a disaster?
Audrey Davis has created such wonderful and lovable characters that when I finished this book I genuinely didn’t want to leave behind, even the genie Dhassim with his tendency to drive poor Jinnie a little nuts.
This is one of those stories that just has everything you want in a rom com, humour, a heroine you root for and even moments that tug at the old heart strings.
There were a few parts of the story that I thought could be carried into a sequel but maybe that’s just wishful thinking on my part!
A Wish For Jinnie is a sweet, funny and uplifting story that is the perfect story to escape from the real world for a while.
