Publisher's Summary

Buffy - a fat, 40ish, divorced mother - encounters a talking frog and, ignoring the warnings of fairy tales, does not turn the frog back into a prince. Trouble ensues when Buffy's rebellious teenage daughter Emily does kiss the frog; soon she and handsome Prince Adamus disappear into the enchanted land of Fair Peril. It is up to Buffy to rescue Emily and, in the process, learn that magic does exist in the most ordinary of lives.

    I'm a bibliophile since early childhood. Love speculative fiction, odd premises, mystery novels that teach about different places and times.

    "My favorite fairy tale"

    I dearly love this book. It's the punch line to the joke that starts" I caught a talking frog". It has some wonderful things to say about middle age and about self help.
    The performance does some very odd things with volume that I really found distracting. Once I got used to that, it was still the book I loved.

    I like realistic books that stretch the truth and the laws of physics...and also emotionally resonant narration that doesn't suck.

    "Well written and sassy"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fair Peril to be better than the print version?

    For a mostly lighthearted fairy story this is well written, funny, and relatable.
