A Fairy Godmother's Redemption
by Maya Tyler
GENRE: paranormal romance
only your dreams could come true with a Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo…
Becoming the legal guardian for his half-sisters puts a wrench in Drew's college plans. Photo-shopped nudes of Seraphina threaten her promising singing career.
Sounds like a job for a Fairy Godmother.
The girls think Faye is Drew’s Fairy Godmother…
Faye’s Café was a busy restaurant, but he discovered he enjoyed working there. He served fancy coffees, bussed tables, and even cleaned the floor after closing.
On Thursday evening, right after closing, Faye handed him an envelope.
Faye smiled secretively. “A little something extra.”
What could it be? He knew he already got his share of the tips. Too curious to wait, he opened the envelope, and his jaw dropped. “This is too much.”
“Nonsense. The suit is a rental. The limo needs to bring you home before midnight. Just say thank you.”
“Have a good time.”
He took the stairs to the apartment two at a time, excited to tell the girls. He opened the apartment door and found the girls reading on the couch. “I have a surprise—a good surprise!”
The girls wore identical expressions of cautious optimism.
“Faye hooked us up with a limo ride to the concert.”
Madison gasped. “Wow!”
Mackenzie assessed Drew critically. “If we’re going in a limo, you’re gonna need fancier digs.”
“Already covered. Faye included a suit rental.”
Madison sighed. “It’s just like in Cinderella.”
“You know when Cinderella goes to the ball… Her fairy godmother gives her a new dress and turns a pumpkin into a fancy carriage…” She smiled dreamily. “You know what that means? Faye is your Fairy Godmother.”
He paused at Madison’s words, thinking about everything Faye did this week. With a new job, new apartment, and now a suit and a limo… It did seem like a fairy tale, but he didn’t want the girls getting any unrealistic ideas. “Don’t be silly, Madison. Fairy tales aren’t real.”
Mackenzie’s chin jutted out stubbornly. “Says who?”
Too tired from working all day, he didn’t have the energy for this argument. “Fine, fairy tales can be real. Now get ready for bed.” He caught Madison and Mackenzie sharing a smug smile.
My review: Welcome to the Wonderful World of Fairy Godmother’s Inc, assembled by 3 old godmothers that scour the earth to see who needed help from a godmother.
The story had an easy narrative
that catches the reader; however, it often jumps around so much that it’s not
always clear what’s going on. In this instance, the story bounces between a sad
boy without a father and a scared pregnant woman. Two different times. Two
different scenarios. How would the godmothers help?
It certainly comes a long way from the Cinderella story we’re all familiar with. It was kind of nice to get a different perspective on it.
An interesting concept with a touch of magic.
My rating: 3 stars
