Love at the Fall Festival, by Belle Willows

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Brynn gets more than she bargained for when she's hired as the event planner for a Fall Festival in the small town of Sugar Maple. She comes up against Jack Oakley, the owner's son who's decided it's going to be a failure before they even begin.

I really liked the premise for this and the building up of town characters, since this is going to be one of many books taking place in this fictional town. However, this book moved a little slow for me and Jack came off not so much brooding as mopey. I was also hoping for more event planning details since the book is all about Brynn's job. There is no mention of anything for the fall festival besides selling pumpkins until about 75% of the way through the book. Not a bad read. It was squeaky clean and free of grammatical errors. 2.99 or free to borrow through Kindle Unlimited.

My Fairly Dangerous Godmother, by Janette Rallison

Having read My Fair Godmother previously, I kinda knew what to expect going into this. Crazy teenage Godmother, check. Teen who gets more (or less) than she asked for, check. Cute romance that (almost) makes you want to be a teen again, check. Lots of humor, check. Janette Rallison is the perfect author for a mom and daughter who want to be able to share books. Nothing offensive, but it never feels sanitized either. In this version, Sadie Ramirez has a horrible brush with fame, and suddenly qualifies for a pitiful damsel in distress program. With Miss Everstar as her Godmother, that basically means she has to endure being The Little Mermaid and one of the 12 Dancing Princesses. Enjoyable throughout. I saved this for my monthly Prime book choice to borrow. Or it's 4.99 to buy from Amazon.
