Overview

A humorous paranormal romance by USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky.

(Previously released as When Good Wishes Go Bad.)

Becca Morris loves her job - producer at an off-Broadway theater - until her boyfriend steals her heart, her money, and all the theater's funds. With her career on the line, Becca finally catches a break when she receives a brass lamp, complete with a gender-bending, wish-granting genie.

Wielding her wishes, Becca gets the chance to stage a challenging new play that can put the theater back on track. It's even written by the adorably awkward Ryan Thompson - who just might mend her tattered heart.

Alas, the only prospect for financing the show is the world's most obnoxious popcorn magnate, and Ryan flat-out refuses to take money from a jerk. Just how difficult can it be for a woman to wish her way to love and success?

This is the second book in a series. I read and reviewed the first book about a month and a half ago and was pleased to see many of the issues that I had noted in the first book were either entirely gone or reasonably present in this novel. This novel isn't nearly so cliché as the first. And the main character, Becca, has a dazzlingly healthy self-image. Her lack of self-confidence is a completely and totally reasonable response to the situation she was in, thanks to a police investigation probing her personal and professional life. Again, Teel is a great character. Ze is still up to zir old tricks (which, really, ze should know it doesn't make things go any faster by now) and is still treated respectfully. I am happy to have a gender-swapping genie any time it's dealt with well. I really enjoyed the glimpses into the genie's life we got this time, and has a lot of fun with the genie-related twist towards the end. The theatre portrayal is still accurate to the point of painful, which I like. It's not all sunshine and roses and, frankly, there's always a mess to be cleaned up. I was pleasantly surprised to see Kira (the last novel's MC) show up, older and a bit wiser. The fact that this book focused on yet another aspect, the technical and financial sides of theatre, made me happy. The only thing I might point out is that there are still some people missing in the theatre staff. Costuming, props, design teams - these are all vital roles in the creative processes and we really don't see them in those roles. It's a frustrating oversight. Last of all, the romance. It was refreshing to see the romance build differently from the last book. It gives me great hope for the next book. This romance was paced well, it had its own problems (and solutions), and it wasn't self-contained. The lovers didn't exist in a vacuum. I really enjoyed that. I also appreciated Becca's self-examination. She is aware of her faults and earnestly tries to overcome them. It's a relief. There's still room for improvement in the novel, as the plots devices are still a little cliché and convenient, but I think this one was better than the last. I look forward to seeing the next one! A (solid characters, writing improvement; convenient plot devices, cliché)
