"A Comic Romance that Works Miracles!"
The fairy godmothers are back! With just one Aaronson
sibling left to go, Nick is their current project. Nick is
a lawyer who doesn't believe in fairytale endings, or
fairies for that matter. Oh his parents and siblings seemed
blissfully happy, but then lightning can only strike so
many times in one family, right? It would take a miracle
for Nick to find that kind of happiness. But then Fern,
Myrtle, and Blossom, are in the miracle business after all,
and they haven't failed a godchild yet. Well almost.
Glory Chambers is a woman who doesn't believe in lawyers.
She'd thought she'd been living a fairytale existence.
She'd held a power job as a corporate executive, and the
type of marriage that came with the job. But the fairytale
had ended badly. Her lawyer husband and his lawyer friends
had taken her to the cleaners. Fortunately she'd just been
handed the opportunity to make a new life for herself. An
unknown aunt had left her a diner in Erie, PA. Independence
sounded like Glory's idea of heaven just now. Of course she
hadn't planned on Fern, Myrtle, or Blossom. Although
considering the current state of her inheritance, their
help was hard to refuse.
Mildly dissatisfied with his life and the bad taste left by
his latest court victory, Nick had taken refuge in his
favorite erotic dream, only to find the buxom Parisian
beauty in his arms had turned to a strange middle aged
woman. She had left him with the warning that this was
definitely NOT his dream. He'd have to agree with that!
Okay so he wasn't about to look deep enough inside himself
to take in her true meaning. He would refuse to even think
about it. But as fate would have it, he soon found himself
in the new diner 'Glory's Chambers' which had opened across
the street from the courthouse. Imagine Nick's shock when
the his worst nightmare appears in the flesh. But now there
were three strange middle aged ladies who claimed to be his
fairy godmothers. Worse yet they had joined the ranks of
the women in his determined to provide him with a life
partner. And who did they have in mind? None other than the
lawyer hating, diner owning, Glory. If he has anything to
say about it he would avoid all four of them in the future.
Glory has no problem with that. She's sworn never to trust
another lawyer as long as she lives. So much for miracles.
So much for best laid plans. Glory's employees find
themselves being sued by a disgruntled god daughter. Fiona
insists she's owed a happily ever after. Who else can Glory
ask to represent them? Who else would not think she was
insane? Nick is sure HE must be insane, but finds himself
agreeing to take the case. He doesn't even want to look
inside to discern the reason for that.
The hearing is bizarre from the start as the mysterious
judge who has been assigned to the case has no notion of
judicial etiquette. Nick and Glory are in for the trial of
their lives. What will be the verdict for the man who
doesn't believe in love, and the woman who is relishing her
new found independence? Will magic be enough to make a
Miracle for Nick? Or will it take something more?
This third book of the Fairy Godmother series is every bit
as hilarious as the other two (Mad for Max and Magic for
Joy). Ms. Fuhrman's classic sense of humor, engaging
characters, and bizarre situations will leave readers
rolling in the aisles. I recommend Miracles for Nick for
anyone looking for a light and comic romance to brighten an
otherwise dreary day. It should work miracles!
