I Want to Read It (77): Fairy Godmothers, Inc

I Want to Read It, a hybrid between WLW (or WOW) and what's on my to-be-read pile. Well, instead of focusing just on books I would like to acquire, I will be using it to feature books that I just want to read. From the ones, I want to buy to the one's sitting on my TBR at home.

Fairy Godmothers, Inc by Jennifer Wardell, April 27, 2013. Published by Jolly Fish Press.
In a world where fairy tale situations are as much a fact of life as death and taxes, everyone knows hiring Fairy Godmothers, Inc. is the best way to assure that your beautiful daughter or enchanted frog of a grandson will get the happily-ever-after he or she deserves. Sure, sometimes a little love potion is required to make sure those quotas stay up, but what Prince Charming doesn’t know won’t hurt him.

Kate, an experienced Fairy Godmother, who’s enough of a romantic to frustrate her rigidly rule-bound boss, has just received a specialty assignment from one of the company’s board of directors. Cinderella—Rellie for short—was placed with an appropriately wicked step-family years before, and now needs the dress, ball, and handsome prince to complete her happily-ever-after. The fact that Rellie isn’t sure this is her dream come true—balls are fun, but princes tend to be less interesting than fluffy bunnies—isn’t something management considers a problem.

The Step-Spinsters, which I reviewed yesterday, has put me in the mood for a fairy tale retelling. Which leads me to why, or should I say "how", I happened across Jennifer Wardell's Fairy Godmothers, Inc. This sounds like it could be very interesting...or that it could (unfortunately) go so very wrong. Either way, I am intrigued as to what will happen when the story of Cinderella is told from the viewpoint of the fairy godmother. 

Have you read this one? Any Cinderella retrellings I should add to my (ever-growing) TBR list?
