But first
Plain and simple – this story (and series) is adorable! Mixing a fairy tale feel with a rather improbable but wonderfully enjoyable romance makes for a read that will leave you smiling. Georgie Poppins is one of those jack of all trades, ok at most sort of girls who can’t seem to actually settle on one thing. While none of her choices have been colossal failures – she’s bright, capable and skilled: she’s never really felt ‘at home’ with any of them. All of her friends have signed on to Impossible Dreams dot com – a site that promises to find the perfect match for them. They all made their most demanding requirements in their lists, and yet, four months later not a single note for Georgie’s rather mundane list.
A near financial disaster has her applying for a nanny position for a set of twins, and it just so happens that their guardian is her long-term crush Bryce. Bryce, however, is ready to leave a dead-end job and the small town of Nowhere – he wants to become a sports broadcaster. Two people – both desperately in need of their own Mr or Mrs Right – and perhaps the impossible can come true. If Georgie only can believe in it – and if Bryce can see that what he needs is responsible for the two new lives in his life.
With a solid mix of family, friendship and small town ‘everybody knows you’ feel, the heart and humor shine through. While the third in the series, this book can be read alone – but why would you want to? Ciotta writes wonderful characters who have the right amount of quirky, plenty of heart, challenges to overcome and solid personalities that could be your friends. You’ll want to spend a weekend curled up with this series – because dreams CAN come true.

When fate bobbles your dream, sometimes you have to make your own magic…. Award-winning author Beth Ciotta presents 'Marry Poppins', the third book in the contemporary fairy tale series—Impossible Dream—celebrating hope, love, and the magic of the human spirit!
She wants a family. He needs a wife. A marriage-of-convenience solves a myriad of problems for unlucky Georgie Poppins and down-on-his-luck Bryce Morgan. Falling in love wasn’t part of the bargain so no one is more surprised than Georgie and Bryce when sexual sparks ignite a full-blown romance. Unfortunately, as love swells, trouble mounts, including a glitch at Impossible Dream.com—an Internet company designed to match people with their most avid desire. Maybe Georgie and Bryce weren’t meant to be after all.
Reader Advisory: Feel-good romance with humor and heart! Mild sexual content and profanity. For fans of quirky love stories.
