In a world where fairy tale situations are as much a fact of life as death and taxes, everyone knows hiring Fairy Godmothers, Inc. is the best way to assure that your beautiful daughter or enchanted frog of a grandson will get the happily-ever-after he or she deserves. Sure, sometimes a little love potion is required to make sure those quotas stay up, but what Prince Charming doesn’t know won’t hurt him.
Kate, an experienced Fairy Godmother, who’s enough of a romantic to frustrate her rigidly rule-bound boss, has just received a specialty assignment from one of the company’s board of directors. Cinderella—Rellie for short—was placed with an appropriately wicked stepfamily years before, and now needs the dress, ball, and handsome prince to complete her happily-ever-after. The fact that Rellie isn’t sure this is her dream come true—balls are fun, but princes tend to be less interesting than fluffy bunnies—isn’t something management considers a problem.
Complicating things a bit is Jon, the youngest son of the royal family, who meets Kate, and is smitten, but isn’t quite ready yet to reveal his true identity. After all, it’s his older brother Rupert who’s supposed to marry Rellie, which means pretending to be a lowly civil servant will give him the chance to spend more time with Kate. (As long as he can get the ball arranged, and stop Rupert from getting himself into trouble over his “self-actualization” business, he should have the perfect opportunity to explain everything and get started on making a little magic with the Fairy Godmother of his dreams.)
But, of course, things never ever happen as planned.
When happily ever after is a business, fairy godmothers are for hire. Kate is one of these fairy godmothers and knows her field, but is unsure of what to do about her latest assignment. Rellie does not know whether she wants the happily ever after Kate is supposed to give her. Bunnies. Rellie wants to be saved from her stepfamily by BUNNIES. The princes are not typical either. Jon has a crush on Kate and Rupert is rather dumb, too. This is one case Kate is never going to forget!
Jenniffer Wardell’s novel had me laughing from cover to cover. The cast of characters are ridiculous (in a good way) and the plot moved quickly. The situations and conversations will cause readers to chuckle, snort, and laugh. There is some light romance and language, but high school readers and older will love this lighthearted novel.
