"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."- Goodreads
"Applauses* Janette where do you get these ideas? Hmm? I insist on knowing! Fine, have it your way. This was a great sequel to My Fair Godmother. Both could be read as stand-alones but frankly together they are fantastic!
I loved Tansy as the main character. You can't help but feel like rooting her on. I love her sassy remarks that she made a few times, I'm like 'yeah show em'. She had problems with her father which were sort of resloved and throughout this book she grew so much as a character. And her wishes (not really her wishes) were what really made the story. It was very nice to see how she handled all the things that were thrown at her. By the end of the book she was one tough girl! The other character I'm going to talk about is Hudson (the cute police chief's son). *squee's with joy* Isn't the name enough? Hudson. Awesome name in my opinion. He was so, how do I put it? Just what a boy should be. Tough, yet caring, handsome, strong, sweet... shall I go on? And the friction sometimes between him and Tansy was hilarious! Every moment with those two together I was squeeing with joy! Chrissy was still the shopping loving diva and Clover was hilarious in this book also... I love the cast! And of course the other characters were great, well not so much Rumplestiltskin but who can deny Robin Hood?
The plot itself was amazing. It didn't have as many laugh out loud moments as the first book but it had more substance. Everyone of Janette's books has a moral... including this one. It was a nice pace that kept you reading until the end so you could finally see what happened. The twists and re-tellings of the stories was incredible! Janette's viewpoint on things opened my eyes and made me say stuff like 'yeah, that makes so much sense' and 'I never thought of it like that!' This book did have humor, it was incredibly fun, a perfect book to give you satisfaction. I want to mention one more thing. Janette if your reading this... thank you so much for that ending (what Tansy did). I thought that was an amazing part of the story that made me almost cry I was so happy. I liked that magical aspect to it. So yeah the plot for this book was very entertaining.
I highly recommend both of these books, they will have you laughing, cringing, wondering, guessing and so much more it's hard to describe! Amazing work(wo)manship!

“They’re not alive. They’re machines, like . . .” but I couldn’t
A car passed by our house, and Robin Hood and Little John simultaneously gasped.
Little John leaned into the window until his nose touched the glass. “What strange manner of beast was that? Lights streamed from its face.”
“A car,” I said. “They’re one of the twenty- fi rst century’s very useful things. They’re faster than horses and easier to take care of.”
Robin Hood put one hand on the glass and peered farther
down the street. “Are they friendly?
