Charmed by Erica Ridley

Trevor is on site at an archeological dig and is so tired he falls asleep at his work table.  Imagine his surprise when a beautiful young woman with wings shows up in his tent...

Intrepid Reads and Net Galley allowed me to download an ebook of this story to read for review (thank you).  It was published in December, so you can find a copy at your local bookstore now.

The title on this one caught my eye and the story line sounded like fun.  I was not disappointed.  I like light fantasy with lots of action and impossible odds.  The magic is just an extra bonus for me.

Daisy is attempting to get her permanent fairy wings.  She wants to become a tooth fairy because no one in her world respects scientists.  She's good at science, not so good at magic.  So far, she's just been able to turn things into pumpkins, which is not very useful.

Trevor is trying to get tenured at the college he teaches for.  Unfortunately, there is another professor trying to do the same thing and next year there will only be one contract.  Can he write up a paper from this latest dig that will help secure his position?  Only if he can recover the missing laptop that had all information.

What really makes trouble for these two is that without intending to, they fall in love.  There's no way for a fairy to live in his world and he won't be accepted in hers.  Is there no hope at all?  Daisy thinks not.  But then she finds out that her bad luck is not bad luck at all; it's sabotage!

There's lots action, some laughs, it's a bit silly and I enjoyed the whole tale.  Why don't you get a copy and see what you think?

Happy reading.
