I recently reviewed her book here and found it such fun to read. If you're looking for something romantic and magical you should definitely check out The Wish List. Please welcome Gabi Stevens!
The fish-out-of-water is one of my favorite types of stories. A character stumbles into a situation where they don’t know the rules or culture and has to learn to exist in a new situation. That’s the premise of THE WISH LIST. Kristin Montgomery is a CPA in San Diego. When she discovers her three aunts are fairy godmothers and she’s next in line for the job, her orderly world disappears like magic. No, not like magic; it is magic. Kristin not only has to cope with burgeoning powers, but also a whole new world that she never knew existed. And when a threat to that world emerges, she has to visit everything to do the right thing.
Not an easy decision. Laugh if you will, but it reminds me of the dilemma in Night at the Museum, a rather cute movie. In it Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams) says to Larry Daley (Ben Stiller), “Some are born great, others have greatness thrust upon them.” Sometimes out course of action is less about our choices than the situation in which we find ourselves. How we react to those situations defines our character. I? Well, I’ve never really been faced with such major decisions, but I hope I’d respond like Kristin and Tennyson and do the right thing.
So combine the fish-out-of water with a difficult choice and you end up with a lighter paranormal that still has a message—THE WISH LIST. I love humor and find that a day without laughing is a wasted day. There is enough depressing news out there that for entertainment it’s rare I want something that will require Prozac when I finish. Confession time: I love Disneyland, fairy tales, roller coasters, cookies. Give me high adventure, romance and a few laughs.
