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?
SOME KIND OF AWFUL...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...
OR ALL KINDS OF WONDERFUL?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...

FAIRY GODMOTHERS, INC. by Saranna DeWylde
The latest book by Saranna DeWylde, Fairy Godmothers, Inc. has a cute cover.
It has a lovely dedication: For the bit of fairy godmother in each of us….
It has great lines like “You can lead a prince to his princess, but you can’t make them kiss.”
It has a promising premise, in that the world is running out of love and therefore the fairy godmothers are running out of magic. So they come up with a scheme to bring together two of their godchildren to fake marry. The publicity will help bring customers to Ever After, Missouri to shore up their newly developed destination wedding business.
But there were some shortcomings.
The two godchildren are Lucky Fujiki and Ransom Payne.
Lucky is an artist and she has had “bad luck” follow her and those she comes into contact with seemingly all her life.
Ransom is a billionaire chocolate maker who was raised by the fairy godmothers and knows their magic is real.
As a reader I needed more backstory on how Lucky and Ransom met, how their love developed, and more on their time in college. That way I could have gotten more invested in their second chance romance. I could have used more information about their breakup. The breakup when revealed, I didn’t like, it seem too flippant, so I would have liked either something different or more explanation.
Also, I often got confused about the bad luck and how Lucky needed to work her way out of the bad luck, if she needed to work her way out of the bad luck, and how Ransom fit into how she could get rid of her bad luck. To the point I just skimmed over those parts.
I really liked Lucky’s best friend Gwen and her children. I would have liked more backstory on the development of their friendship, since Gwen seemed to be “immune” to Lucky’s “bad luck.”
This series has great potential. I liked the concept and the banter between the three godmothers. I will be looking into what direction the author takes these characters in the next book of this series.
