Tansy Miller has always felt that her divorced father has never had enough time for her. But mistakenly getting caught on the wrong side of the law wasn't exactly how she wanted to get his attention. Enter Chrysanthemum "Chrissy" Everstar, Tansy's fairy in shining, er, high heels. Chrissy is only a fair godmother, of course, so Tansy's three wishes don't exactly go according to plan. And if bringing Robin Hood to the twenty-first century isn't bad enough for Tansy, being transported back to the Middle Ages to deal with Rumpelstiltskin certainly is. She'll need the help of her blended family, her wits, and especially the cute police chief's son to stop the gold-spinning story from spinning wildly out of control. Janette Rallison pulls out all the stops in this fresh, fun-filled follow-up to the popular My Fair Godmother.

My rating: ★★★★★

Tansy's life sucks. Her parents are divorced, and since she was a Daddy's Little Girl, her dad's abrupt departure really hit her hard. She lives with her mom and younger sister, but her mom seems to pay more attention to her sis. Eventually Tansy's sister gets an acting gig, and since she is underage, their mom goes along on this "trip," forcing Tansy to move states away with her estranged father and his new family. Being new at this school, the only person who really "got" her was bad boy Bo, her now boyfriend. But this bad boy might be more trouble than Tansy can handle.

Enter Chrysanthemum Everstar, "Fair" Godmother extraordinaire! She grants Tansy 3 wishes, and she actually manages to mess them all up... big time. Seriously, it's so bad that it's hilarious! In one wish, Chrissy brings Robin Hood and his Merry Men straight out of a story book and drops them into the 21st century... it's actually crazier than it sounds, lol. In another wish, which, naturally, Chrissy also screws up, Tansy, her dad, and her step-family end up in the Middle Ages and Tansy finds herself making a crazy deal with Rumpelstiltskin. Oh, and did I mention that Hudson (AKA Mr. Hot Police Guy whom Tansy kind of knows) ends up here as well? Yeah, when I say Chrissy is a bad Fairy Godmother, I really mean BAD! lol

"Wow, when Chrissy messed up a wish, she did it in a big way." -Tansy

This book was the BEST! Between this one and the first book, this has got to be my favorite! I love Chrissy in that she always messes up the wishes in such epic proportions! Also, she is SUCH a teenager! She is always busy shopping or at parties or doing other "important" stuff.

I loved Tansy! She went through some great character development, from that rebel teen to and understanding, mature, young woman. And don't get me started on Hudson! *swoons* He is one of the yummiest love interests in a book EVER! Seriously, he is very handsome, charming, smart, and has this really sweet and protective side that just makes me melt on the inside. He also has this bad boy aura going on... *sighs* Nuff said ;) I could probably go on and on talking about how amazing this guy is, but lets move on for now ;)

Without giving too much away, I just wanted to mention the baby! I just about DIED! It was one of the most heartwarming things ever! I loved getting to see that little glimpse int the future!

I loved the story! It was very funny, very romantic, and there was tons of action! This series is one of the best fairy tale retelling series EVER! I highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun, light read with a fairy tale twist. And a great thing about this series is that you don't necessarily have to read the books in order since we get a whole new cast of characters in each book. The only character they have in common is Chrissy. Anyway, highly recommended!
