Fairy Godmothers, Inc. by Saranna DeWylde

Armed with her trademark mix of quirky charm, witty comedy, and sexy paranormal romance, Saranna DeWylde takes readers on a rollicking ride through twisted fairy tales and towards the ultimate Happily Ever After in her first Fairy Godmothers, Inc. Series installment. Ever After is a town that runs on magic, and that magic is fueled by love. So when the three fairy godmothers in charge of Ever After’s magic supply realize the town’s power has started to wane, they conspire to transform Ever After into a premiere wedding destination in hopes of attracting a major infusion of love to the town…

If love is the source of all the magic in the universe, and the town of Ever After, Missouri, is the epicenter of enchantment, then the locals are in dire need of a reboot. At least according to resident fairy godmothers Petunia, Jonquil, and Bluebonnet. Their solution? Blow a bit of fairy dust in the direction of those in need of romance…what could possibly go wrong?

Lucky Fujiki’s first name is a cosmic joke. Her luck is so bad, even the number seven steers clear of her. But when her adorable godmothers ask for a favor, Lucky can’t say no–even if she can already feel the bad juju waiting to strike. And her mission is even worse than she imagined: to promote Ever After as a wedding destination by faking a marriage to her first love and long-time ex, Ransom Payne–he of the Embarrassing Incident that neither of them will ever live down…

Ransom Payne has spent years building an impressive new reputation for himself, and now his godmothers want him to pretend to wed the one girl he’d like most to forget? Sure, weddings in Ever After could be a huge boon for his chocolate business, but risking more up-close-and-personal time with Lucky? Considering the stakes, it’s a curse he’ll have to bear, at the risk of being humiliated–or perhaps, bewitched… 

I received this ARC from NetGalley and here is my honest review. I really, really enjoyed this book! It was cute, romantic, funny, and a really easy to follow and easy to get into read. I was highly entertained the whole book and I absolutely loved all the values and lessons woven into the story. Not to mention, the main female lead was of Japanese decent, which I am so happy to read about diversity and representation that is not common in mainstream media.

On to the story. Lucky and Ransom were the love of each other’s life. With Lucky’s rather unlucky history, Ransom and Lucky’s story wasn’t meant to be and he becomes known as ‘The Boy Who Misses.’ As a favor to their fairy godmothers, Lucky and Ransom agree to fake marry as a publicity stunt for the town of Ever After; to put it on the map as a popular wedding destination. Unbeknownst to them, Ever After needs love to fuel the town’s magic. With Lucky’s unluckiness following her everywhere and impacting everyone around her, can the wedding survive all the mishaps?

Lucky and Ransom had great character growth and self reflection. They are surrounded by supportive, if not meddling, friends and family, who love hard. I mentioned a some values and lessons woven into the story, which include the overarching themes that family doesn’t have to be blood and the importance of taking ownership of your own actions.

This book falls solidly into the young adult genre so some of it does feel a bit surface level and I think DeWylde could have dug a bit deeper in some instances. However, it is written for that young adult audience and I think the author did a great job weaving the fairy tale theme into a plot driven and character development story. I highly recommend this book. It is released on December 29, 2020 and you can purchase it through a variety of platforms here.
