Granted Wishes - Book Cover

A decision that will change her life forever.

After the loss of her husband, Gracelynn Calhoun has struggled with her life and career. Forced to take a four-week vacation or be fired from her job, she surprises everyone including herself and agrees to the vacation.

The owner of Antonetti Suites, Giovanni works hard and doesn’t have time for relationships or love. That is until he literally crashes into Gracelynn. She brings back all the feelings he thought he would never feel again.

With the odds stacked against them in every way possible, will they forge ahead together or will this be the end of the road for their newfound love? Will the whispers from above bring them together or will misunderstandings ruin what could be an amazing second chance at love?

“Wow. You’re a vision, you know that?” He practically drools all over. She wears a pair of blue jeans and a low cut green sweater with a white scarf wrapped around her neck. Her hair is up, and she wears light make up. 
She chuckles. “Like what you see?” She smirks at him, daunting him. The little vixen can come out and play when she wants and he is enjoying this side of the sexy Gracelynn. 
He decides to play dirty himself. “Want to see how happy I am to see you?” He smirks back at her. “Let’s make a wager, shall we?” he asks competitively. 
She grins at him. She intently twirls a strand of her hair that she left down by her face between her fingers, licks her lips and stares at him. She looks him up and down, making him even more drawn to her. 
He gulps. The damn vixen knows how to play dirty.
“Well, what is the wager? Because if it is staring at each other all night, I could do that and then some.”

My Thoughts:

 Gracelynn Calhoun is very upset with her life right now.  She has two friends who love her very much and have planned an intervention.  Giovanni Antonetti has an unexpected visitor.  It seems as if forces are trying to heal them both.  I found that the story grabbed my attention almost from the beginning and that can be a good thing or a bad thing.  The bad thing is that I got so lost in the storyline that I didn’t want to go back to work.

One thing about the paranormals is that anything goes.  It’s kind of hard to do research on something that doesn’t exist.  The authors can be as creative as they want and this author has done that in spades.
She had me wanting to take a road trip in order to set the mood.  I could picture going up to Vermont and finding a quaint little town in which to read this book. 

Gio and Gracelynn seem to have an instant connection that neither can seem to explain.  So seeing where the author is going to take these two characters is what makes the book a great page-turner.  And to turn up the cuteness level she’s added in a dog.  If you’re a person that believes in the unexplained with a romantic twist, you may just want to check this out.

You have a ghostly matchmaker who loves two people and just wants to know that they are happy.  You meet minor characters that seem to want to help too.  As a reader, you will also want to see them happy.  They will get there since we have our HEA but it has you believing that anything is possible where love is involved.
