    I received this book as an ARC through Booksprout but this review is all my own! I really enjoyed this book - it was engaging, fun with great characters and plots too. Sigourney is an Oracle. However at the age of 44, her ill health is catching up with her and before her body gives in for good, she is determined to solve the mystery of her mother's death and bring her killer to justice before he returns to take Sigourney's life as well.

I really enjoyed this book - it was engaging, fun with great characters and plots too. Sigourney is an Oracle. However at the age of 44, her ill health is catching up with her and before her body gives in for good, she is determined to solve the mystery of her mother's death and bring her killer to justice before he returns to take Sigourney's life as well. She knows of only one thing that could possibly help, but this thing can only be found in the one place she really doesn't want to go - Brimstone Bay, her hometown, where her father rules the local vampire nest! Sigourney manages to find what she was looking for, by pure accident really (or was it the intervention of someone else?!) and Charming, a real life genie in a lamp, assures her that granting her the three wishes will not be the answer to her problems. They will only make her pay a hefty price, but little does she realise what that price will be. On the hunt for her mother's killer, being hired to prove the innocence of a possible murderer, whilst avoiding being caught by various organisations that are after her is not easy and the price she pays for her first wish has changed everything Sigourney ever knew! I loved the interweaving of all the various characters and sub-plots of this book and the Reaper is fabulous villain. He is so intriguing (if it is a he; it may well be female for all we know!) - I need to know how he has managed to stay one step of the game every time! How does he know who these hidden women are?! Charming was a great character, not yet a love interest, but there was definitely more to him than just being a genie in a lamp! The friendship and trust was slowly building between him and Sigourney and I hope that he is back again in the next book! i would have liked to see more about Sigourney's background, especially her upbringing in a vampire's nest, but maybe that's for another day! And the cliffhanger revelation at the end was very unexpected - maybe I need to read between the lines a bit more, but it completely shocked me! So looking forward to seeing how that pans out too! A great start to this new series and this new-to-me author as well.

    This is book one of The Midlife Wishes series and the main character is Oracle and seer Her Grace Sigourney Maltei, who is a sanguith, daughter of a very powerful vampire and a succubus. She has managed to survive to the good old age of forty four, which is well over the norm for one of her kind.

She has managed to survive to the good old age of forty four, which is well over the norm for one of her kind. She has lived a life of pain, with brittle bones that break at the merest knock, and kept by an employer for her powers, until she could escape. Her powers have been decreasing as she aged and she had been trying to keep that from her employer, before she could get away. She has returned to her former hometown of Brimstone Bay to find a genie, that her powers have led her to, so she can make her wishes to stop the serial killer called the Reaper, who killed her mother in front of her when she was only two. She wants to protect the daughter she had when she was eighteen, an event both conception and birth that she is unable to remember, as the Reaper likes to kill mothers in front of their daughters and then when the daughter has a child, to repeat the process. She was told her daughter died at birth, but she has always had the feeling that she was still alive somewhere, she just doesn’t know where and doesn’t want to lead the killer to her door! She no longer has a home, job or any money, as well as failing health, never mind that she is now back in close proximity to her father, who may want to kill her on sight. She manages to find the lamp, by falling over it and goes to get blood, before making her first wish. The genie turns out to be the man she met in the vampire nightclub and goes by the moniker Mr Charming, but he is anything but! He tries to persuade her not to make any wishes, warning her that there is always a cost that has to be paid and she should work out her own problems by looking back into her dark past. Anything she wants him to help her with, he refuses to do unless she wants to make a wish. She refuses to use up her valuable three wishes on something trivial. She needs to find any witnesses to her mother’s murder, but also solve the one case she has never been able to, that of a ghostly figure of a young girl who always appears by her side every day. All other figures who haunt her in this way, have always been solved by using her powers, allowing them to finally move on from their tragic ends. She soon finds herself mixed into an investigation of a very powerful vampire family, the Thanes, with the help of her half-brother, and a very convoluted secret about events that led to Gaia Thane being imprisoned for murder of a human guest in her family home. She has persuaded Sigourney to prove her innocence, in exchange for information about the identity of the Reaper. The genie can’t accommodate her first wish, as he is not allowed to kill anyone, nor have anyone else to kill for the person making the wish! She has to do what she desires the hard way and make it her own way. A difficult price is paid for her first wish, which devastates her, but she has new energy and feels more alive than she ever has, so not everything has turned out badly. She has a very twisted family dynamic to contend with, where numerous people could be the true suspects behind the young girl’s murder and someone who is also hiding information about Sigourney’s own child. A deadly and twisted ending as the Reaper strikes again and leaves a cryptic note behind for Sigourney. Looks like she still has a long road ahead and lots more to do with the genie. I received an ARC copy of this book from BookSprout and I have freely given my own opinion of the book above.

    I am sure everyone believes that 3 wishes will sort everything in their world out, give them their heart's desire and they will live happily ever after but as the genie in the lamp warns Sigourney, this really really does not happen.
