Fairy tales aren’t ever what they seem . . .

Tuesday Knight’s dream of Broadway stardom has flopped, leaving her unemployed and brokenhearted. Ready to quit kissing frogs and make her own happily-ever-after, she takes a job as a princess in Everland, Georgia’s historical amusement park.

Mayor Beau Marino lives an unenchanted existence-all work, no play-which is fine by him. After his marriage ended in disaster, the last thing he wants in his life is more drama. But Everland’s new free spirit has a talent for getting under his starched collar.

When the town’s beloved but bankrupt park might be shut down, Tuesday and Beau face a choice. Can they join forces, save the day and each other? Or will their fierce battle of wills destroy any chance of a fairy-tale ending?

In the tradition of New York Times bestselling authors Kristan Higgins, Jill Shalvis, and Marina Adair, comes the second book in Lia Riley’s Everland, Georgia series about two city sisters finding love in a small town.

Favorite Quotes:

 

…it was like stepping into Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory after a long diet of iceberg lettuce and rice cakes.

 

You’re a grumpy old man before your time… Your inner child must look like Benjamin Button.

 

Tuesday had always vaguely assumed she’d have kids until two years ago, when a friend from high school had called to cry in desperation about her sleepless, sexless life. After that Tuesday had moved that particular life goal from her “Must do” list to “Maybe.” Might be time to downgrade it to “Nope.”

 

My lovely fiancée has ordered me on pain of no sex for a week not to push the subject… Celibacy and I aren’t friends.

 

There’s a man I’d unplug from life support to charge my phone…

 

 

My Review:

 

I was smiling and smirking as I read as I am just adoring this series by Lia Riley; it has a little of everything, clever wit and humor, a cautious romance of former nemesis, family drama, small-town rivalries, gossiping biddies, corruption, a dash of steam, a devious and villainous old crone crime boss, politics, a legend of lost treasure, a princess, a seer, a troubled child, and scandal. I was engaged and entertained throughout by Ms. Riley’s smart and amusing observations, descriptive and nimble writing style, and complex and endearingly flawed characters. I am looking forward to a return to Everland, Georgia.

    “…it was like stepping into Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory after a long diet of iceberg lettuce and rice cakes.”
    This would be my idea of heaven. Sounds like a good book.

    To further show you just how my mind works, I am here wondering if this book would contain dark humor if only the author had named her Wednesday…
