What to do when your Pesky Fairy Godmother has it in for you
By Jessie Morton
From Fatal Fairies – Ren Faire Mystery #8
By Joyce and Jim Lavene
I’ve read all the fairy tales. I know what’s supposed to happen when your fairy godmother comes to save you. You get the glass slipper. You go to the ball. You win Prince Charming.
Well don’t believe a word of it!
I can tell you from experience that making a wish can be
devastating. It can change your whole life and your fairy godmother is no help
putting it back together again.
All I said was “I wish Chase wasn’t Village Bailiff anymore.”
That’s it. Sounds innocent, doesn’t it?
And BLAM! There I am a strange place trying to make the
impossible happen with my fairy godmother telling me it's my own fault for
Not a good place to be.
The one thing I had going for me – my husband, Chase
Manhattan – was suddenly a different person who didn’t remember that we were
married. He didn’t want to be the Village Bailiff anymore. He just wanted to
have fun jousting and flirting with the pretty fairies.
Which is where all this started.
Now I'm supposed to get him to help me solve the murder
of Apple Blossom the fairy while I make him fall in love with me again.
And this has to happen while Chase is still with Princess Isabelle, as he was when we'd first met, and I am scrounging for a job and a place to live at Renaissance Faire Village because I'm not director of the Art and Craft Museum anymore.
To make matters worse, Canyon Britt - the man I hired to help Chase is now Bailiff and thinks he's in love with me.
Things are so complicated. I'm not even it's possible to do everything my fairy godmother says has to be done to go back
to my life again.
But I can promise you one thing.
If I get through this, I’ll never make another wish again as long as I live!
