Fatal Fairies

When a fairy named Apple Blossom is found dead in a fountain, Ren Faire lover Jessie Morton makes a wish she lives to regret—that her husband, Chase Manhattan, is no longer the Renaissance Faire Village Bailiff so he doesn’t have to look for the fairy’s killer and ruin their plans to go away for their first wedding anniversary. 

Trapped in a timeless ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ experience, Jessie is transported to a different Village to face the consequences of her wish where Chase isn’t the Bailiff, and he’s not married to her.

Jessie’s fairy godmother who granted the wish tells her that she must find a way to make Chase fall in love with her again, and they must discover who killed Apple Blossom, if she ever wants to go back to the life she knew.

Praise for the Fatal Fairies:

“This story will quickly grab your attention and transport you into the Renaissance Village that Jessie, Chase, and the cast of quirky but lovable characters inhabit.  The story is fast- paced, with plenty of twists and surprises along the way.  There is a little something for everyone in this tale from romance, suspense, and a little bit of magic.”  ~ A Cozy Booknook

 “If you enjoy a Renaissance Faire with quirky, fun characters then this is a must read. Fatal Fairies is book 8 in A Renaissance Faire Mystery series. A very enjoyable, magical cozy with engaging characters that kept me guessing till the end who the killer was.”  ~ Amy Connolley

“What would you do if your fairy godmother made your wish come true and it turned out ALL wrong? At least there is a way to make it right..... but it isn't easy. What a nice escape read. Loved it.”  ~ Dorothy Hughes
