The magical small town of Ever After, Mo., takes center stage in this can’t-be-missed paranormal rom-com from DeWylde (My Immortal Knight). Lucky Fujiki is convinced she’s been misnamed—she’s anything but lucky. As a half-kitsune, or Japanese fox spirit, chaos follows Lucky wherever she goes, infecting the lives of those around her—though thankfully her best friend and her three fairy godmothers seem to be immune. When the godmothers approach Lucky for help replenishing Ever After’s dwindling magic supply, she instantly agrees—then she finds out they want her to fake a wedding to her high-profile ex-boyfriend, billionaire chocolatier Ransom Payne. Magic runs on love, and the godmothers hope to use the well-publicized wedding to turn Ever After into a wedding destination and keep the love pouring in. But there are two problems: Lucky and Ransom’s relationship ended in a shared humiliation that has followed Ransom ever since, and Lucky’s still in love with him. What follows takes the best of the fairy tale world, infuses it with modern sensibility and humor, and places the emphasis firmly on personal growth. Readers will fall head over heels for both the quirky town and the achingly sweet second-chance romance. (Jan.)
