Book One in The Wish Granter’s Series: A story about taking a chance on love.*

Shelly Wagner is in trouble but her fiancé, Ben, doesn’t know it. Broke and ready to gamble her last dollar on a Super Lotto ticket, she really needs some help.

It arrives in the form of Joe and Alanna—Wish Granters from another world. One problem: it’s their very first assignment and they’re fairly clueless about their new wish granting powers and how to best use them. Plus they have a few things to work out in their own lives—if only they were still among the living. They want to return to earth, but can only get back by helping Shelly first.

After Joe and Alanna show up, Shelly’s life takes a drastic turn. So drastic that Shelly sees she may have been wishing for the wrong thing all along.

Is Shelly doomed or will Joe and Alanna help her squeak through? And, once they grant her wish, will she truly be able to turn her life around?

The Wish Granters: They’ll grant your wish, but the rest is up to you.

From the reviewers:

Chandler and Swan weave a beautiful story about tough choices within this novel. As the reader, you are quickly drawn into the bright lights, big city feel of what Shelly wants, but you also know this won’t be the way she solves her problems. Even while reading, the subconscious constantly nags at you for Shelly – you know this can’t be the way her life will be. This is the result of great writing, to make the reader feel what the characters feel – want for them, hurt for them, laugh at them, love them. Shelly’s journey is one we all know too well – the desire for a quick fix. Chandler and Swan help us all see that a “quick fix” will not change our destiny – we must change ourselves.

Don’t we all say to ourselves, “if only … “, our lives would be all O.K. Well, Shelly got her chance and here is where she discovers what’s really important to her. Loved the characters and the premise of this story. Hope the sequel is just as good.  –  K. Kuhl

Kindle Nation Daily Bargain Book Alert: LB Swan and Hope Chandler’s Megan’s New Year is Our eBook of the Day at just $2.99, with 5.0 Stars on 3 Reviews, and Here’s a Free Sample!

Here’s the set-up for L.B. Swan and Hope Chandler’s Megan’s New Year, just $2.99 on Kindle:

Megan Randall has been bumped from her flight home to America. Stranded and alone at the London airport on Christmas Eve, when she’s offered a free holiday ticket, she thinks back to the first boy she ever kissed, a Scottish exchange student who starred with her in a high school production of Brigadoon.

Declan. The name evokes feelings she’s never quite been able to dismiss.

Now, years later, the chance to find Declan again is impossible to resist. With the help of the Wish Granters, Alanna and Joe, she travels to his small Scottish village where a twist of fate casts Megan back into the role she played years earlier.

There are plenty of complications – ex-wives, blizzards, falling ladders, and the fact that if the town depends on their annual New Year’s Eve performance of Brigadoon for their financial survival, they may go totally bust. But the biggest complication of all comes in the form of Declan’s less worldly, but equally appealing cousin, Rory.

Megan’s New Year is the charming tale of a woman who steps away from her everyday life and into a Scottish fairy tale. Even the Wish Granters, Alanna and Joe, can’t help getting swept up in the romance and the chance to save the postcard-perfect village of Alloway. As the clock strikes down to midnight, Megan will have to make the choice of a lifetime. Should she reunite with a lost love or take a chance on something new?

From the reviewers:

Sooo Romantic!  I love Scotland, I love Brigadoon, and I loooove the relationship between Alanna and Joe! It’s great when reading a book has you thinking, something great has happened in my life – did my Wish Granters do that for me? Or better yet, will they? Keeping my eyes peeled for the next book!  –  Felicia Howie

Terrific and Heartwarming.  It’s sweet and heartwarming, but never sacchrine, and it makes you think about what happened to that proverbial guy who got away and how finding him again might really be.  The Wish Granters looks like it’s going to be a promising series, with lots of insights about women’s lives and how what we wish for changes as we mature and age. Can’t wait for the next one!  –  Kim Wright Riley

Cozy little Book.  This is a fun, fast read. It’s sweet, entertaining, and perfect for curling up in front of the fire with after your guests have gone home.  –  John MacQueen
