Four Sides to Every Story by Valerie-Anne Baglietto

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I loved it. It is such an easy read that allows you to think what if! Can there really be real fairy Godmothers? Can they influence who you love and try to cause a true relationship? This book allows your mind to wander and to think of the lovely fairy tales that you read and loved as a child.

Sawyer Ellis is a widower who is left caring for his two young step children Anthon and 8 year old Alexa. He lives in his past wives childhood home which is known as Fools Castle. He lives there with the second wife of his wives father she is called Veronique. Veronique has not left the castles grounds in many years and this can cause household issues. The set-up of this strange family living in the castle seems very unusual but adds to the interest.

The story starts with Maggy Kemball Renting out her cottage during the summer months to two young ladies. She is not supposed to rent out the house because she actually does not pay any rent on the property due to an old agreement with her and a late owner of the castle. The two ladies were not expecting either of the other to be in the property as well; at least that is what we are led to believe. However Lily, one of the ladies, is a fairy godmother and she has been set the task to get Sophie, the other renter, and Sawyer to fall in love and to live the happily ever after. Of course she is not allowed to relieve her magic powers and finds the task she has been set challenging. That is as much as I am going to say as I don’t want to give the story away.

The characters in the book are lovely and you can help liking them and even though you think why did you do that the story unravels to give the answer. I say I like them for one exception, Johnny, who I cannot bring myself to like as he has his own plans and does not mind who he hurts in the process. Or is he doing what he did so that true love can be found? That is for you to decide.

The book has some lovely twists and makes you think about true love and what you have. I am so pleased that I review books as it encourages me to try new authors and I have now found some great authors in lots of different genres. This is one of them and I will look out for more by Valerie-Anne Baglietto.
