eARC: A Lady and Her Magic by Tammy Falkner
We meet Sophia Thorne who happens to be a fairy come to help the Duke of Robinsworth's daughter and possibly him. However, Sophia wasn't assigned to the Duke's daughter, but her sister Claire. And you wonder why I think they're mischievous?
Ashley Trimble, the Duke of Robinsworth, is enchanted by Sophia by first sight. Rumor has it that he killed his first wife, which most young attractive ladies stay far away from him. Not Sophia; she doesn't take the hogwash that society feeds and judges the situations for herself.
As luck would have it, Sophia and her grandmother (by the way is definitely mischievous) were invited to a house party at Robinsworth home, which is hosted by his mother. What perfect way to get closer to Robinsworth's daughter. However, nothing ever goes according to plan. Ever since Sophia had set her eyes on Ashley she had practically broken all five of the Unpardonable Errors which her society has.
While reading this book, I learned there are two different types of fairies: Mission fairies and Gift fairies. Sophia falls under the Mission Fairies. By the way, the different fairies don't get along very well. Each has there own standards and rules, go figure. For future information garden gnomes are a bunch of gossipers, you might not want to have them around. Last but not least, next time you look at a fish you might take into consideration it might be bad fairy.
Overall, I found this book charming and enchanting. Words you might associate with fairies and I'm looking forward to reading more fairy adventures from Tammy Falkner. So, you might want to check this book out when it comes out in a couple of weeks.
