Author – Saranna DeWylde
Genre – Romance
Page Count – 320 pages
Bad luck follows Lucky Fujiki wherever she goes. Is it any surprise then that she thinks of her name to be a joke?
Fairy Godmothers, Inc. is the kind of book which you can read in one sitting and its also one which needs a little sticking around with because it does get better. If you were brought up on fairytales and Happily Ever Afters, then this might be the book for you.
Ever After is a small town which runs on love and Godmothers, Jonquil, Petunia and Bluebonnet seem to be running low on magic lately. So when inspiration strikes and they realize that they need a little love to keep their magic alive, they decide to start a destination wedding business and what better way to get publicity than former flames, Lucky, a famous artist and Ransom, a billionaire chocolatier.
In the beginning, the book seemed a little silly especially an incident which gave Ransom the nickname, The Boy Who Missed. But once you are past the extremely Disney like dialogues and too cute to be true scenarios, it turns into a wonderful holiday read.

The setting of the book is literally out of a fairytale – shops shaped in the form of what they sell, a magical fountain with a frog prince and an especially sparky cardinal who sews. If it weren’t for some sexual content and kids using bad words, the book would have made an exciting children’s fairytale.
This isn’t to say that the book is not for adults. Its a perfect holiday read, full of love between not just Ransom and Lucky, but the godmothers and all the people of Ever After. With a cast of great side characters like Lucky’s best friend, Gwen and Ransom’s business advisor, Roderick along with the ever meddling godmothers, the book has a pleasant and fun vibe which you don’t want to miss out on.
