Publisher's Summary

When your heart makes a wish, even impossible dreams can come true. 

Viola 

After years of working for my family's business, I'm finally back in college and ready to chase my dream of becoming a perfumer. It seems like the stars are all aligning when Chancellor College invites a preeminent French fragrance expert to speak at a symposium. Everything is working out just right, as long as I can continue to ignore my growing feelings for a certain hippie beekeeper. That, it seems, is turning out to be easier said than done. 

Rayne 

The elders sent me on a mission to Chancellor to help Alice, owner of the local bagel shop, find true love. So far? Well, not so good. The bees and I have to double up our efforts if we have any hope of helping our girl find the road to happiness. While I know Alice should be my priority one, my heart, however, seems to have a mind of its own. If I could just get Viola Hunter out of my mind, I could focus on my task. That, it seems, is turning out to be easier said than done. 

The Fairy Godfather is a fractured fairy tale. Enjoy this twisted retelling of the classic Cinderella story. 

Lose yourself in Poppy Lawless' enchanting town of Chancellor, a magical place where fairy tales can come true and happily ever afters always reign supreme. 

The Fairy Godfather is a standalone novella and as part three of The Chancellor Fairy Tales, a series of romantic fairy tales for adults. This novel can be heard on its own, but you'll get the most enjoyment from this series if the works are listened to in order.

Fairy Godfathers Need Love Too

This is a light, easy romance set in a town where several fairy-tale creatures live incognito among the regular humans. This series has humor and good dialogue with minimal drama and great narration. There are mentions of past happenings that you can read about in the prior books in the series, but each book can be a standalone. This whole series is a great option when you want a short-term escape with just a bit of magic or when you just need something light and fun to hit the reset button after a tragic, heart-breaking or otherwise heavy listen. I liked the characters and the supporting "cast" and look forward to more.

Cute and sweet story

Great Christmas present. I received this audio book free for an honest review. I have read other Poppy Lawless books and have enjoyed them all, to include this one. A little romance and magic is a great mood booster. I have listened to the two previous books, but it is not necessary to enjoy this one. The author does a great job of developing the characters. I don't care for Hollie Jackson as a narrator. The inflection in her voice does not seem appropriate for being a narrator of this type of book. It detracts from this cute story.

Enchanting Romantic Fairy Tale for Adults

Any additional comments?

The Bee Charmer is a very enchanting short story that is basically a romantic fairy tale for adults. It is the third story in the Chancellor Fairy Tales by Poppy Lawless and it is an extremely enjoyable light-hearted listen. There is definitely a place for short stories and this is a very good one at just under three hours. It can be easily enjoyed during a commute to and from work or during one afternoon.

The story centers around Viola (Horatio’s sister from the second book in the series, The Cupcake Witch) and Rayne (Horatio’s best friend). Viola is an outstanding manager at her family’s winery business, but she dreams of becoming a perfumer. After she assists with accommodations and transportation for a preeminent French fragrance expert who is speaking at her college, her dreams seem to be coming true when he offers her a highly coveted internship in France. However, she is reluctant to accept it after she starts to get closer to Rayne because she’s afraid to lose something so special. Like her, Rayne is distracted from most things in his life due to his strong feelings concerning Viola. Thankfully the ending is perfect with hope and everlasting love to look forward to.

I listened to the Audible version of the story narrated by Hollie Jackson. She did a fantastic job narrating, as she did with the first two books in the series. She brought the characters to life giving each one their own distinct voice, both male and female characters. She also has great intonation and pace, making this a thoroughly entertaining experience. Brava!

The Bees Knees :)

What a sweet and charming tale . . . and a magical little town, Chancellor, on the shores of Lake Erie, its filled with other worldly beings . . . who want nothing more than to help their human neighbors along . . . So far, The Bee Charmer is my favorite . . . Clean, romantic, leaving just enough to the imagination . . . I've come to care a lot about the folks of Chancellor, the quaint shops that cater to locals and tourists, and I surely hope there will be more in the series . . . for we all deserve a little twinkle in our lives :)

Not your normal Cinderella

I loved getting to hear about love for the fairy god father for once. Usually the story focuses on whoever is the "godchild"; but this was a nice twist on the usual. Hollie did a wonderful job voicing Viola and Rayne. The bits of Cinderella splashed in here and there made the story even more wonderful to listen to.

Charming

Charming little story about fairies and their living among us regulars. How they use their charms to bring together different elements like bees to find people their significant other. Was sweet. Not enough however to give you a full story more like the glimpse in the window at a story. Lot of loose ends not finished to keep you wanting to know what happens next. No Sex no bad language just a sweet clean story. Book received at no charge in exchange for an honest review.

A fabulous twist on the Cinderella story that all adult fairytale lovers will enjoy

I listened to the audiobook of this story without reading the book, but Hollie Jackson (the narrator) really brought the author's work to life. Melanie Karsak always writes beautifully, but with this book her writing is so descriptive and characterful, I could literally see the people and events in my head like a movie. A fabulous twist on the Cinderella story that all fairytale lovers will enjoy, and a fine third instalment in the Chancellor Fairytale series.
