The History of My Wishes

The History of My Wishes - Pembroke Sinclair Do you know why you only get three wishes or where this tradition originated? Stevie tells us. Having lived a tragic life after her parents died when she was five, Stevie turns to alcohol for comfort: "I was trying to avoid living by drowning in a bottle." One day she meets the mysterious Kenton in her favorite bar. Why has he been watching her and what offer does he make? Will Stevie take him up on his offer?

Speaking of threes, firstly this book makes a great impression with its cover by Delilah K. Stephans. Secondly, I love the fact that the back cover blurb is located after the ebook cover; I've missed reading the back of books! Thirdly, this is a fantastic story. The author has a great conversational style. She tells a touching tale and makes you wonder what you would do if you were in Stevie's position. The ending ties up nicely with the beginning. All in all, this is a very well-crafted piece of writing.

I received this book for the purpose of providing an honest review.
