Quick Thought Review: Wishful Thinking by Helen Harper (@HarperFire)

Sometimes I read a book where I just don't have a lot to say about it. Hence the name quick thought reviews. This will be short and sweet.

Wishful Thinking
Release Date: August 26, 2019
Publisher: Self-Published
Godmother In The World
(Or Die Trying) 
Book #1
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Review Copy Source: NetGalley

Muddled magic. Missing faeries. She’s having one spell of a day at work…

Saffron Sawyer aspires to rise from the magical world’s bottom rung. But when her wish to join the renowned Office of Faery Godmothers is granted, bullies make her first day on the job unbearable. And to add to her misery, she discovers that someone is abducting her coworkers one-by-one.

Desperate to prevent another kidnapping, she scrambles to piece together the clues. After teaming up with the handsome and powerful Devil’s Advocate, she uncovers a strange connection between the disappearances and her lowly former gig. But when Saffron learns her promotion was only a ploy, she vows to ruin the devious plan.

Can Saffron muster enough magic to trap the villain before she’s sacked or stolen?

Wishful Thinking is the first book in the refreshingly original How To Be The Best Damn Faery Godmother in the World (or Die Trying) urban fantasy series. If you like determined heroines, enchanting spins on old tales, and clever twists and turns, then you’ll love Helen Harper’s captivating story.

Buy Wishful Thinking to watch a spunky sprite strut her stuff!

I can't say that WISHFUL THINKING was an indepth, all encompassing story, but it was fun, fast paced, and had some mystery woven in.

I enjoyed getting to know Saffron. She's smart, a bit quirky, and has a strong sense of loyalty to others, even towards those that want to see her fail.

There isn't any romance in WISHFUL THINKING, but there is the start of a romance and I enjoyed witnessing the connection and partnership between Saffron and her love interest.

I was entertained with WISHFUL THINKING and will keep an eye out for future books.

I gave it 3.5/5 stars
