When she meets her three long-lost godfathers everything starts looking up---until they insist upon granting her three wishes. She complies to make them happy, only to end up in jail with charges of larceny and worse.
What's a girl to do? Hope that the gorgeous detective assigned to her case will believe she's telling the truth? Or that her fairy godfathers will come up with the bail money to release her?
If ever there was someone in need of a HEA, it's Ellie.
Three Wishes was inspired by the Brothers Grimm's story The Three Little Men in the Wood. I enjoyed the very modern flavor since it didn't detract from anything. It allowed for sly humor and sexually charged scenes within the plot. Ellie is a contemporary heroine which means she's clever, uninhibited, strong-willed, and not a doormat for her nasty step relations. The hot-blooded detective took me by surprise admittedly, while catering to all the men-in-uniform fantasies. Ellie's fairy godfathers are marvelous! Angus, Marcus, and Liam are mystery, mayhem, and miraculous. Ms. Lyons does a superb job at not clumping them together by developing unique characteristics for each one.
There's loads of fun times, adult humor, and it goes without saying, sparkles. Who can resist sparkles, I ask you? The darker elements aren't down played either. The Grimm stories were never intended for children, so you don't escape the more gruesome and violent aspects. The approach is sophisticated, mirroring the criminalities of what you might see in the local paper. Questions and answers surround the pursuit of true happiness; it comes down to how our choices affect us, the future and our children. As a featured mainstay in the narrative, it reminds us of the price we pay for selfishness and for dismissing the gifts of love and sacrifice. This delightful gem gets top marks for presentation, originality, and chocolate-lava-cake-devilish-yumminess!
