Bar owner Jillian Anderson knows things aren’t going her way
when she breaks a jar full of dust, then drops a jar of
Wickles on top of it. But when she comes back later to clean
it up she finds not the mess, but a genie who’s eaten all
the tequila-laced pickles that were in the jar Jillian
The genie, Sera, tells Jillian she has one wish. Jillian,
thinking this is a joke, wishes for a hot night with
photographer Luke Parsons, her sometimes lover. But Sera
refuses to let Jillian waste her wish on something “so
trivial.” That refusal sets in motion a chain of events in
which Jillian learns to open her heart, and she and Luke
learn to trust their feelings.
One Wish is a playful story that pulls on your
heartstrings. Luke and Jillian are fantastic, true to life
characters that spring off the page and into each other’s
arms with abandon. I loved watching them learn about
themselves, and each other.
As a genie, Sera is great and a lot of fun. One Wish
is a keeper.
