Maeve Merritt chafes at the rigid rules at her London boarding school for “Upright Young Ladies.” When punishment forces her to sort through the trash, she finds a sardine tin that houses a foul-tempered djinni with no intention of submitting to a schoolgirl as his master. Soon an orphan boy from the charitable home next door, a mysterious tall man in ginger whiskers, a disgruntled school worker, and a take-no-prisoners business tycoon are in hot pursuit of Maeve and her magical discovery.

It centres on Emma , a well-off, pretty, self-satisfied young woman who indulges herself with meddlesome and unsuccessful matchmaking with her friends and neighbours. A little humorous , a little drama, Cute story

It would've been a lot better it every single person you started to like or follow didn't get killed off. Everyone gets killed and terribly. Noone to follow. It's an ok story idea. Could've been a little better story. Second two books could have been combined really of stretched out some and ended better.

After a long day of prepping a house for painting, all Gus Berry wanted was the night off to spend some time with his girlfriend and relax before having to return to work the next morning. But that isn’t going to happen. Because Gus’s co-worker Benny has found a one-night job at the local Mollymart East, a job that has to be done by morning. If Gus and his paint crew can complete the work by then, it could mean huge business with a respected, established grocery store chain.
