Months after wrapping up her first faerie godmothering case, Olivia is faced with a new assignment: a lovesick mermaid princess who won't give up her dreams of marrying her Humdrum crush.
But negotiating a happily ever after (and dodging the wrath of the Sea King) isn't the biggest problem on Olivia's plate. She's sick with guilt over keeping the Faerie Queen's offer a secret from Imogen. Lucas is suddenly, gorgeously, and terrifyingly single. Her parents can't seem to stop arguing. And something is happening in Portland - something even Queen Amani seems afraid to face.
When Olivia is hit with a devastating betrayal, she's left to pick up the pieces on her own. But it will take more than a wave of her wand to fix everything that's been broken, and will require her to face the reality of a world where every happy ending comes with a shadow.
