Description from the publisher:

Prepare to be... Charmed!

Daisy le Fey is good at a lot of things. Math, science, accidentally turning people into pumpkins... Unfortunately, she's not good at the one thing hiring managers look for when filling open positions for magical beings: Magic.

When she jeopardizes her apprenticeship by getting involved with sexy mortal Trevor Masterson, it's one disaster too many. In order to stay out of purgatory, she's going to have to ditch the human—and her one chance at true love.


It’s a Disneyesque fairy princess story for adults.

Daisy le Fey lives in Nether-Netherland.  She wants to be a fairy, but she has no magic of her own.  What she does have is intelligence and drive.  Trevor Masterson is a human.  He is an anthropologist who wants tenure at Michiana University.  When they meet in the middle of a rainforest in Costa Rica, it is the beginning of this tale leading to (cue the music) Happily Ever After. 

I absolutely loved this book. I laughed.  I cried.  I cheered.  Then, I sighed.  I love HEA.  I was completely immersed in this world.  Luckily this is the first in a series.  I cannot wait to return to Nether-Netherland!

One last note:  I have to mention Bubbles the Where-frog.  Though he never says a word (unless you count “ribbit”), he has a great attitude!  I loved the little pictures of him to separate the scenes in the book – too cute!
