Some people bomb auditions. Sadie Ramirez throws up during her tryouts on TV show America’s Top Talent. Her performance is so bad, it earns her a fairy godmother through the Magical Alliance’s Pitiful Damsel Outreach Program. Enter Chrysanthemum Everstar: a gum-chewing, cell phone-carrying, high heel wearing fairy godmother in training. She misinterprets Sadie’s wishes and sends her back in time to be a part of The Little Mermaid story and then makes her one of the twelve dancing princesses. Wishes are permanent, and if Sadie wants to get back to her home, she’ll have to strike a magical bargain–one that involves stealing a goblet from a powerful fairy queen. With a little help from a handsome and talented thief, she might be able to pull it off.

What a fun book!
What I liked: I really enjoyed My Fairly Dangerous Godmother. In some ways, much more than the previous books. I liked how upbeat and down-to-earth Saide is. I also really liked that she didn’t whine and complain, like Jason, but instead, dealt with her present and moved forward. Very practical and realistic.
I also liked how we switched stories. I didn’t love The Little Mermaid (ever) and much preferred diving into 😉 The Twelve Dancing Princesses.
Falling in love was the easy part. Realizing the difference between infatuation and love was the difficult part. I loved how readers were shown the difference in a fun and memorable manner.
What I didn’t like: There were times I felt the story drug. Mostly, it was fast-paced but there were times it was a bit slow for me.
Plus, the epilogue leads us to believe another story is coming… but I’ve not seen one.

My Fair Godmother
My Unfair Godmother
My Fairly Dangerous Godmother
Janette lives in Chandler, Arizona with her husband, five children and enough cats to classify her as “an eccentric cat lady.” She did not do this on purpose. (The cats, that is; she had the children on purpose.) Every single one of the felines showed up on its own and refuses to leave. Not even the family’s fearless little Westie dog can drive them off.
Since Janette has five children and deadlines to write books, she doesn’t have much time left over for hobbies. But since this is the internet and you can’t actually check up to see if anything on this site is true, let’s just say she enjoys dancing, scuba diving, horse back riding and long talks with Orlando Bloom. (Well, I never said he answers back.)
