Stonefly by Scott J. Holliday
Jake found the boy almost immediately on the first day when he was fly fishing in Braketon. The fishing trip was supposed to be a break from his curse; some time alon from people and their almost never-ending wishes. Jake was cursed; if he heard someone make a wish, he had one week to grant that wish or the wisher died. He hoped the kid would have a kid-like wish. Nope. Jake was most definitely cursed. Instead of wishing for a puppy, the kid wished someone would kill his dad.
Scott J. Holliday has one of the most alluring writing styles I’ve read in quite some time. The descriptions are so accurate the reader can smell the flowers or the blood; can feel the water on the lake and can hope the curse will be lifted. Holliday knows how to pace and plot and develop a character so wonderful readers will be anxiously watching their calendars for their next installment.
