This was a different kind of cozy from what I am used to reading. For one thing, there was no sleuthing involved at all. There was no amateur PI or mysterious murders to solve. You just had a woman who was restarting her life, working in a personal care home, and granting wishes to the last living residents. At a quick glance it doesn’t sound all that crazy, but when miracles start happening things start to change. Now, for those of you that don’t now, I actually do work with Senior citizens in a personal care home so this book just hit me a little differently.
So let me start from the beginning…Angie was a woman whose life was turned upside down when her husband decided to divorce her. I mean the guy waited until there vow renewal to drop that bomb, so just imagine how shattered she felt. She decides to take a huge leap of faith and moves to this town where she knows nobody and by some miracle her car ends up breaking down at a church that was coincidentally looking for someone to run the activities in their home for the residents. And boy does she do a wonderful job with that. The first major activity that she decides to do involves magical dandelions and having the residents write down one wish. Then her job was to grant the wish in any way she could. That is where the story really begins to tug on your heart strings. There were wishes to drive again, find out the answers to the universe, be young again, dance again, and just a few more. How was she going to make that all happen? And how did wish granting lead to her being a suspect for murder? Well, you will just have to read the book to find out.
Overall, the pacing of the book was absolutely perfect. There was never a moment where I felt that the story was dragging on. I loved getting to know the residents of this home and the people living working there. With every wish that was granted I found myself wanting to know what the next wish would be. But I must warn you, everything isn’t sunshine and rainbows…remember Angie becomes a suspect for murder. There were many moments where I laughed or cried hearing the stories of these residents. I think of all the wishes the one that touched me most was the wish of the sisters. I mean I cried. I really did. And did I mention there were miracles? If not….yes there definitely was a miracle or two. If you are looking for a cozy mystery with a spiritual twist, this is the one for you!
