A spell is cast

Unfortunately, no fairy godmother had ever taken on three assignments at the same time. Could she do it? Dare she try?.....Besides, she thought as she waved her wand and released a brief, glittering shower of magic over Belinda, Lilith, and Roberta "happily ever after" was more than just shop talk.

FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FAIRY GODMOTHER
Only a storybook affair like the marriage of Cindy Ella Jones and Princeton Chalmers could lead to three such tangled romances--and happily-ever-after endings.
Kidnapped from the wedding party, the lonely beauty would learn how a little love can tame a wild beast--even one as intimidating as Cain Derlin, the handsome recluse.
Thrown together with Frank Henson, a seemily soft-spoken security guard, self-absorbed Lilith would have to learn that, with love and respect, there's a prince waiting behind every toad.
The shy redhead's heart had been broken by a wicked wolf once before--and now that Maximillan Wolfe had shown up at the wedding was determined to get her grandmother before the big bad Frenchman could hurt her again.
This book was horrible. The fairytale marriage of Cindy Ella Jones and Princeton Chalmers is interrupted by a kidnapping. The fairy-godmother sets Cindy's best friend Belinda, her sister-in-law Roberta and her step-sister Lilith the task of preserving Cindy and Prince's HEA. The story is told in three parts: part 1 is Beauty and the Beast with Belinda Jones and Cain Devlin. You get exactly what you expect to get with absolutely no surprises. An okay story but nothing special. Part 2 is The Nerd Prince with Lilith Smythe and Frank Henson which is boring as hell with a PITA heroine and a brutal hero. Certainly not my cup of tea. Part 3 is Little Roberta Hood gets Even with the Big Bad Wolfe featuring Roberta Hood Chalmers and Maximillian Wolfe. This one is beyond terrible. This book just went from bad to worse and I actually had to force myself to finish it. What rubbish!
