The Wish List

One day Kristin Montgomery is a boring, ol' CPA, the next she founds out her aunts are fairy godmothers going on a cruise and so is Kristin! A fairy godmother, that is. She's not going on a cruise. Turns out, they're retiring and that means that Kristin has to take their place as a godmother but there's a wee little problem: She has no idea how to even use a wand, nevertheless actually going about granting wishes and doing whatever else entails being a godmother. So because she's a newb, she has to be trained by no other than Tennyson Ritter, a well-know historian and wizard.

To make things deliciously complicated, from the get-go Kristin and Tennyson have the hots for each other but as an arbiter/student, it's against the rules for them to start anything. But before they can even start thinking about exploring their very-illegal feelings for each other, odd things start to happen and before you know it, Kristin's life is in danger and Tennyson is the only one who can help her. Obviously.

Let me start by saying that I did not finish The Wish List. Yep, it was a DNF for me and mostly because I could not stand either main character. From the beginning, Kristin annoyed the bejesus out of me with her whining and it got old fast. Tennyson is so high and mighty that at times I wanted to reach into the book and smack him. I tried to give them the benefit of the doubt and even made it almost half way through the book before I just called it a day and gave up. The story itself is just so convoluted and poorly-explained and honestly, it seemed like the author was pulling information out of nowhere and smashing it all together in the hopes of it somehow making sense and it didn't one bit. The plot is shallow and confusing and the characters highly annoying and unlikeable and I'm sorry to say The Wish List was a huge miss for me.

Book Blurb for The Wish List

When Kristin Montgomery discovers her three aunts are fairy godmothers and she's next in line for the job, her uncomplicated life disappears like magic. No, not like magic; it is magic. Kristin not only has to deal with burgeoning magical powers, but also a reluctant arbiter, a selfish sprite, and a suave French sorcerer. It’s bad enough there are no books or classes she can take to learn magic, but someone is out to take over the Arcani world.  Kristin has to trust her heart and her instincts to keep herself and the ones she loves out of danger.
