Summary: Tansy Miller has always felt that her divorced father has never had enough time for her. But mistakenly getting caught on the wrong side of the law wasn' texactly how she wanted to get his attention. Enter Chrysanthemum "Chrissy" Everstar, Tansy's fairy in shining, er, high heels. Chrissy is only a fair godmother, of course, so Tansy's three wishes don't exactly go according to plan. And if bringing Robin Hood to the twenty-first century isn't bad enough for Tansy, being transported back to the Middle Ages to deal with Rumpelstiltskin certainly is. She'll need the help of her blended family, her wits, and especially the cute police chief 's son to stop the gold-spinning story from spinning wildly out of control. Janette Rallison pulls out all the stops in this fresh, fun-filled follow-up to the popular My Fair Godmother. 

My Thoughts: I read My Fair Godmother a few months back so when I had the chance to read My Unfair Godmother I jumped at the chance! I enjoyed My Fair Godmother but I really loved My Unfair Godmother even more! We once again get to spend time with Chrissy and her latest task Tansey. Tansey just moved in with her father and they don't really see eye to eye on things. She also can't keep herself out of trouble. She starts dating Bo and seems to find herself in trouble. She gets caught spray painting a building when really she wasn't actually doing it and had no clue he was going to do it until it was happening!

She gets brought down to the police station and ends up telling the truth to a hot guy which happens to be the police chief's son Hudson! She than goes home and finds a fairy godmother offering her 3 wishes. First, she wishes for Robin Hood and low and behold he shows up! He isn't the guy she thought he was and starts causing trouble! The next thing she knows she's been dropped back in the middle ages with her whole family including Hudson. 

I loved the fairy tale retelling, I loved how the relationship with her family transformed. I loved all the events that happened in the middle ages. I especially loved Hudson. He was such a  great character and I really enjoyed all the scenes with him! I also loved how lights went off when Tansey was telling a lie when talking to him. Tansey and Hudson had great chemistry! What Tansey traded for Hudson was heartbreaking but also a really great thing to do!

Overall: I loved My Unfair Godmother. Usually second books in series are the ones that are always a little bit boring or "off." My Unfair Godmother outshined My Fair Godmother in my opinion! It was a great book in the series! I loved everything about this one!

Cover: Love It! Its really pretty! Love her pink hair and her dress!
