Fairy Godmothers, Inc. by award-winning journalist Jenniffer Wardell is a hilarious ride into the land of fairytale re-imaginings and was released in both print and eBook on April 27, 2013 from Jolly Fish Press.
This story is so well written and fun! From the first sentence onward the writing style simply flows as you read, adding just the right amount of detail to create a believable world of magic and social hierarchy. Allusions to a slew of fairytales make their way into the narrative alongside a sweet tale of romance. This is a great read for teens and would be perfect for mothers and daughters to read and laugh about giddily together.
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.
