Book 1 in a new series.What Lacey needs is a miracle. What she gets is a genie with rules.Lacey Linden is hiding the truth of her life—a depressed mom, a crumbling house, and bills too big to pay. While her high school classmates see a girl with a ready smile and good grades, Lacey spends her evenings seeking ways to save her family. On a get-cash-quick trip to the flea market, Lacey stumbles over a music box that seemingly begs her to take it home. She does, only to find it is inhabited by a gorgeous "genie." He offers her a month of wishes, one per day, but there's a catch. Each wish must be humanly possible.Grant belongs to a league of supernatural beings, dedicated to serving humans in need. After two years of fulfilling the boring wishes of conventional teens, he is one assignment away from promotion to a challenging new role with more daring cases. Yet his month with Lacey is everything that he expects and nothing like he imagines. Lacey and Grant soon discover that the most difficult task of all might be saying goodbye.
In an Oyster Shell – An ingenious contemporary reimagination of the mythical genies. I highly recommend this book.
The Pearls – I thought this was an amazing reinventing the premise of genies and wishes. I loved how the author set the premise of the book. Where the wishes are to better people and the genie as well. I am totally in love with this series.
I loved the relationship between Lacey and Grant. I love that Grant (the genie) is learning more about human behavior in his relationship with her. I love that they influenced both for the better in the end.
I really appreciated the subplots of this book. Though Grant was there for Lacey his influence would go out to all the family.
I liked how this can be read as a stand-alone but is a great set-up for the next book.
The Sand – I have not critiques for this book it was good as is.
I give this a well deserved 5 pearls!
