Fairy Godmothers are out there
Pop princess Seraphina Jacobs’ meteoric rise to fame is something out of a fairy tale. The role model of every young girl, she seems to have it all. But when compromising photos are leaked that can tarnish her family-friendly image and derail her career she needs a miracle to recover. When her PR team hires the best of the best to clear her image things start looking up, but is there more to the story than her manager is letting on?
Drew Parker has not had the easiest life. With his dad abandoning him and his mother when he was eight, he has struggled to get to where he is today. Now, at eighteen, with graduation approaching, his life is looking to be on the right track. That is until an unexpected visitor brings news that shatters his entire world. Drew’s estranged father has recently passed away and left behind Drew’s two half-sisters. Now, as their sole surviving blood relative and unwilling legal guardian, Drew has gone from kid to “parent” overnight. With Drew’s mom unwilling to have anything to do with the girls, Drew must figure out how Madison and McKenzie fit into his future if at all. When he wins VIP tickets to Seraphina Jacobs’ comeback concert for him and the girls, Drew and the singer are drawn immediately to each other. With more than just the girls playing matchmaker, Drew wonders if he is just a temporary “PR prop” to assuage the current crisis, or is there something more developing between the two?
A Fairy Godmother’s Redemption is the fourth in The Magicals series by author Maya Tyler. While loosely tied into the storyline of the first three books in the series as well as being set in Chicago, A Fairy godmother’s Redemption is more of a “prequel” story for the first three installments. Where the first three stories are focused on an individual story, this time we are introduced to “Fairy Godmothers Incorporated” a group of Magicals who moonlight as the owners of the local café. From their perches serving up apple pie, coffees, and the occasional bit of grandmotherly advice they also keep tabs on their charges until such a time that they need their services. I really loved this concept; it made the story easy to read and fun to follow. Faye, Rainy, and Ginger were perfect godmother types! I could easily picture them as kind older ladies with an understanding demeanor and a hint of mischief in their gaze. Faye’s interactions with the twins as well were also precious and humorous. It almost seems as if A Fairy Godmother’s Redemption was a way to provide more backstory for one of the more central characters and also provide a “filler” story for the larger arc of characters, but I do hope to see more of Faye, Rainy, and Ginger in the future. I can really see this concept spinning off into an entire series or sub-series of its own as the trio find more charges who can use a little nudge in the right direction.
