How cool is that? Why is it called the Three Wishes Blog Blitz? Juliet’s new romantic comedy release, I Dream of Johnny, is about three wishes, a high-tech genie in a lamp, and one very unfortunate typo that proves magic isn’t all it cracked up to be…
Readers of this blog who leave a comment will go in the draw to win a signed copy of my debut novel Blackwattle Lake.
The theme of the blog blitz – Three Wishes – got me thinking about the protagonist in my soon to be released novel Essie’s Way. Miranda’s one of those girls that seems to have it all – a great job, plenty of cash, a lifestyle most thirty-somethings would kill for and to top it off is about to be married to a handsome young professional in a perfectly planned fairytale wedding. But when Miranda discovers that her supposedly long-dead grandmother could be well and truly alive things start to go awry.
So what are the three things Miranda has wished for all her life? One of them is a “normal” family. While her father, Brian, is an all round nice guy, Miranda’s mother, Kathleen has some serious issues. Suffice to say that Miranda’s relationship with her is not exactly warm and fuzzy. Without an extended family Miranda has always dreamt of having a wise, loving grandmother, one who will tell her stories and shower her with kisses.
Being a highly intelligent over achiever Miranda has always wished for a partnership in the law firm where she’s worked for the last five years. She’s young, efficient and ambitious and the only thing standing in her way is Daniel Blount, a male version of herself, the only other contender for the highly coveted promotion. If Miranda can nail this partnership her financial security and career path will surely be secured.
Last but not least on Miranda’s wish list is to live happily ever after with the man of her dreams. A devotee of those romantic old black and white movies where the girl always got the right guy Miranda has been busy planning her wedding to James, her long time boyfriend and everything is going to be perfect. A gorgeous old chapel, a vintage style lace dress and maybe that antique necklace of her mother’s that she remembers from her childhood.
And that’s where things start to come undone.
What does Miranda discover that throws her life into chaos and why is that voice whispering in her ear “be careful what you wish for”?
Well, if I told you the answer to those questions I’d be giving away too much and I’d much rather you found out for yourself when Essie’s Way is released in December!
I love to hear from you.
What would your three wishes be? Have you had a wish come true only to wonder if that’s what you really wanted after all?
