Book Tour, Giveaway & Review: A Charming Wish by Tonya Kappes

This is the third book in the Magical Cures mystery series by Tonya Kappes. This story takes place about 1 year after the end of book 2, A Charming Cure.  Life is pretty good for June Heal.  Oscar Parks, the Sheriff of Whispering Falls and her best friend since childhood, is now officially acknowledged as her boyfriend and her shop A Charming Cure is doing very well.  June has managed to become a full fledged member of the Whispering Falls community.  But all that is about to change.

With a dire prediction about a storm brewing, June decides to make up a protection potion.  Unfortunately, it is a level 28 spell, and though June has gone to Hidden Hall, the Spiritualist University for Intuition training, this level spell was not covered in her basic training.  June presses on and when it comes time to select a bottle for her potion, finds that the bottle her Native American smudge grass supplier had left behind with his last delivery is the one wanting to be used.  But when June opens the bottle, she gets quite a surprise to see a genie appear. 

June's well ordered life starts to flip upside down.  First by being unexpectedly promoted to Village President and then almost immediately being put on suspense and her shop closed due to suspicion of murder. Next, accused of robberies and finally, losing Oscar due to a magical contract misunderstanding.  June must focus on her Intuition, her fairy god-cat Mr. Prince Charming and figuring out just who exactly is trying to frame her.  All while trying not to be caught with an illegal in Whispering Falls genie.

This was a great book and I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads.  June stumbles from one situation to another, trying to do her best to do the right thing, but clearly needing more training.  Even though she has been in Whispering Falls for a while now, and is quickly learning the Spiritual and Magical ropes, having grown up in the mundane world still put quite the stamp on her responses.  And can cause quite the stir in the Spiritual community. If you enjoy a campy, fun filled book, this series is a must read.

Bubble, Bubble. . .

It seems shop owner and newly appointed Whispering Falls Village President June Heal has it all: Beauty, wits, bewitching powers...Sheriff Oscar Park. Life is good. Because life in Whispering Falls is magical.

Cures and Trouble. . .

But when a member of the community is found dead on the steps of A Charming Cure, June's homeopathic cure shop, and her fingerprints show up at the scenes of local robberies, she is kicked off the village council and her powers fall under scrutiny. Until it's uncovered who is wreaking havoc on the town...June's magic is suspended.

Magic Stirs. . .

With the help of a rather obnoxious genie and Mr. Prince Charming, June's Fairy-God cat, June is determined to figure out who is framing her. Time is of the essence when it becomes clear that the true villain is trying to get rid of her...permanently!

And Trouble Doubles. . .

Oscar Park will do anything to protect June even if that means giving up all of his magical powers. . . or worse, his life.

  1. A Charming Wish as always with Tonya's books is a fun and cozy read! As this is third full book in the series I will try to keep it short and not give anything away. June is back fun and quirky as ever.

    The Equation book

    1. Thank you so much, Henry!! Wow! You made my morning!

  2. Thank you so much for reviewing my novel! I'm so excited and honored to be here.

  3. I've read all of Tonya's books and have loved them all. They give you a nice warm fuzzy feeling and lots of laughs! My wish if I found a Genie Ina a bottle would be for some beautiful healthy grandbabies!

    1. Thank you so much, Lori! I really appreciate that. We could all use a genie ;)

  4. If I found a genie in a bottle; I would wish for happiness for my kids in their lives. (love the review)

  5. I'm reading this one now for my stop later this week. It is so cute :)

  6. Love Tonya Kappes books, can't wait to read this one she is an awesome author. As soon as I get some extra money I am getting this one. :)

    1. If I found a genie in a bottle, I would wish for money, so my kids would not have to struggle like I have had to do. I was a single parent for 12 years and it was hard, but with Gods grace, he has watched out for us and always provided for the things we needed. :)

  7. I haven't read any books in the series, but I sure want to check it out.

  8. Having read numerous stories/books like The Monkey's Paw I know to be careful what you wish for, so I'd ask plenty of questions first before making any wishes. When I did wish, it would probably be something smallish so I wouldn't get any backlash karma.

  9. If I found a genie in a bottle I'd ask for everyone to be nice and to take responsibility for their actions - which would take care of world peace!!


Thanks for taking the time to comment.
