Review: The Wish List - Gabi Stevens

Kristin Montgomery is more than a little shocked when her aunts inform her they’re fairy godmothers. Worse, after dropping that bombshell they hand her a wand and head off on a world cruise. Now Kristin’s uncomplicated life as a CPA in San Diego has disappeared like magic and she not only has to deal with her burgeoning magical powers, but also a reluctant—and distractingly sexy—magical arbiter.

Tennyson Ritter is a historian. A scholar by choice, he is yanked from his studies to act as arbiter for the newly chosen fairy godmother. He doesn’t want to waste his time with a woman who doesn’t know anything about magic or the magical world, but soon the beguiling Kristin draws him away from his books and into her life.

But before Kristin can hone her skills and pass the tests necessary to fully claim her powers, she and Tennyson must work together to defend the world – both magical and human – against those that would claim her powers for their own.

Paperback, 384 pages, Published April 27th 2010 by Tor Books, Time of Transition #1, Paranormal romance, Own

My thoughts:
I do like this cover more than the rest of the series. This one just looks more fun, and cute.

There is magic in the world, but we do not know it. And there are also Fairy Godmothers. Though honestly, I never truly got the whole Godmother idea. They explained but I was still..eh what? Maybe it's explained more later on, or not.

Right Kristin was, oh I do not know. Honestly she felt a bit daft at times. Especially when it comes to a certain gentleman that showed up. But then Tennyson was no better. I was all, hello! She is in danger so why on earth does no one check things better?

But it was a cute little story about two people falling in love...after a while. Her discovering her powers. Meeting new people and hearing about the magical power struggle.

Conclusion:
Magic, fairy godmothers and meddling aunts.

Cover
Cute

  7. I think this cover looks kind of Disneyish :) It sounds like an ok read, nothing more and nothing less, so I do not think "The wish list" is going on my wishlist ;) but I did enjoy reading your review of it, B.

  10. I do really like this cover! It sounds like a fun series to check out. Hopefully the explain the Godmother thing better...it would really stink if they didn't and then that would always a big question you had while reading.
