My Unfair Godmother by Janette Rallison

click meHow did I get the book?  I bought it.

Genre: Fantasy.

Additional: I bought this because I enjoyed My Fair Godmother so much.

Synopsis: Tansy Miller didn’t mean to end up on the wrong side of the law—being caught with a can of spray paint, on a date, wasn’t exactly planned. Enter Chrysanthemum “Chrissy” Everstar, Tansy’s fair godmother, who still has a few things to learn about granting wishes. When Tansy is transported to the Middle Ages to recreate the Rumpelstiltskin tale, Tansy will need the help of her family, her wits, and especially the cute police chief ’s son, Hudson, to stop the gold-spinning story from spinning wildly out of control.

200words (or less) review: Generally when I hear someone say “it’s just the same as before” I assume it’s not a compliment but in this case it is. Everything that I enjoyed about My Fair Godmother is still present. Chrissy is as Fair as ever. I really like that despite the superficial character Chrissy is at first glance she has these moments where she hits the nail on the head.

My Unfair Godmother returns with the same format. Chrissy has submitted a heavily edited extra credit report to the Department of Fairy Advancement and this is investigated.

The recipient (victim?) of Chrissy’s help is Tansy who has moved in with her father and the family he left her behind for. After Tansy’s the date from hell Chrissy arrives in her room with a pathetic-o-meter and tells Tansy she has three wishes. So starts the mayhem.

I felt sorry for Tansy on occasion, especially when others were blaming her. Yes it was her wishes but a Chrissy interpretation is something no one can predict. The character development for Tansy in particular worked really well though.

Janette Rallison writes highly entertaining stories and I’ll certainly be reading more of her books.
