The story is grounded by being set in and around a social-services agency in Seattle and by making her central character sympathetic and realistic but the author still manages to have a lot of fun with idea. Rose Samson is neither fashion-model beautiful nor a twit and she happily joins forces with Felicity Fortune, a Godmother who demonstrates that the basic situations in Grimms fairy tales are still relevant in our humdrum modern world.

The two work with many people including a sweet and smart pair of Hansel and Gretel-like abandoned children named Hank and Gigi, a Snow White (Sno) who is royal if you count her fathers rock-star status and Cindy, who is suing her stepmother for control of her trust fund. In all their encounters, Rose and Felicity try to blend their magical aid with realistic human initiative and social responsibility.

Scarboroughs fully-realized settings and the humor built into the mix of magical solutions and grim reality make this work an entertaining and compelling read.
