Muddled magic. Missing faeries. She’s having one spell of a day at work…
Saffron Sawyer aspires to rise from the magical world’s bottom rung. But when her wish to join the renowned Office of Faery Godmothers is granted, bullies make her first day on the job unbearable. And to add to her misery, she discovers that someone is abducting her coworkers one-by-one.
Desperate to prevent another kidnapping, she scrambles to piece together the clues. After teaming up with the handsome and powerful Devil’s Advocate, she uncovers a strange connection between the disappearances and her lowly former gig. But when Saffron learns her promotion was only a ploy, she vows to ruin the devious plan.
Can Saffron muster enough magic to trap the villain before she’s sacked or stolen?
Wishful Thinking is the first book in the refreshingly original How To Be The Best Damn Faery Godmother in the World (or Die Trying) urban fantasy series. If you like determined heroines, enchanting spins on old tales, and clever twists and turns, then you’ll love Helen Harper’s captivating story.
Wishful Thinking by Helen Harper
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a fun book. Saffron is a faery and she wants to be a faery godmother. She gets to the office and she is bullied right off the bat and the people who work there are not nice at all. Other Faery Godmothers are missing and no one knows what has happened to them. Saffron decides she is going to investigate and find out what has happened to the other Faeries. She ends up working with the Devil's Advocate. She finds out she was only hired to be a Faery Godmother as a ploy and she is not happy. She wants to prove that she can do this job and make people happy.
I liked Saffron but the people she worked with including her boss needed to be taken down a couple of notches. We always think of Faery Godmothers like the Disney movies and these Faeries are totally opposite.
I received this from NetGalley for an honest review.
