DEBUT Iza is a woman determined to have it all in this debut paranormal romance. She’s an architect with a promising career, missing only a loving partner to meet her exacting mother’s approval for a picture-perfect life. When she accidentally summons Beckett, a frat boy cursed to grant wishes, from a bottle of glittery nail polish, a seemingly foolproof plan presents itself—use her wishes to create the perfect partner, a modern Mr. Darcy. But is the strait-laced and proper Mr. Darcy enough to impress her decidedly disapproving mother? When Iza finds her mind straying toward the unserious, unsuitable Beckett, she’s left wondering if even a wish can give her the life she craves. Iza’s determination to find happiness by pleasing her mother and the resulting hot-to-cold behavior toward the men in her life may frustrate some readers, but those who stick with it are rewarded with a protagonist who ultimately values the people who love her and has the confidence to pursue the life she wants even in the face of disapproval.
VERDICT For libraries where romantic comedies with a paranormal twist are popular.
