Genres: Fairytale, Fantasy, Romance
Cari Harris lives what should be a charmed life. She owns a quaint bed and breakfast in a charming southern town, is surrounded by loving friends and family, and possesses magical powers. Most of the residents in Fable, GA, are descended from mythical creatures straight out of fairy tales, and Cari is no exception. As a descendent of Cupid, she has the ability to see when two people are soul mates and the power to make sure they fall in love. However, this power is sometimes more of a curse than a blessing, because Cari is also the town screw up.
While hosting a murder mystery weekend at her inn, she tries to match a young couple and makes a huge mistake. Now she must fix her mistake before the guests leave at the end of the weekend, all while making a bigger mess of things along the way, in her typical fashion.
As if Cari didn’t have enough to worry about already, her old boyfriend just moved back to town. Years ago, she forced herself to stop thinking about Mike, but now that he’s back, there is no avoiding him. It’s a small town and she keeps running in to him, no matter how much she hopes to avoid it. When she stumbles across some unexpected secrets, and Mike helps her with her current matchmaking dilemma, all of her feelings from the past come flooding back.

Ugh! Really? I want to go stomp and throw a tantrum like a petulant five year old! Just as I was thinking, hey this is totally going somewhere, and I got settled deep into my comfy couch…
WHAM! THE END!
What? Come on!
At only 170 pages obviously this was a really easy read but it was more than that, the plot is cute, the characters are just adorable, there is a ton of drama but nothing overly crazy that would make me want to back away. All in all it was quite charming. Which is fabulous because oh my I was so worried about Cari screwing thing up and everything going haywire!
The plot was set to an excellent pace, although there wasn’t quite the character arc that I was expecting, there was enough but I guess with her weird relationship with Mike that I was thinking something big was going to happen and then BOOM, nada. But other than the absolutely dreaded cliff hanger, the book was really sweet, totally cute, fast read, and I didn’t put it down one time.
Sadly this was just published so I’m going to have to wait for book two but it IS a part of a series so I’m super excited about that.
