A Once-Upon-A-Time Romance by award-winning author, Judi Fennell

Beauty and The Best

Jolie Gardener, personal chef by day, aspiring romance writer by night, likes to talk and does it a lot. She has to because if she stops, all the pain, disillusionment, and abandonment of her AWOL mother, question-mark father, and foster-care childhood will rise up like a chocolate soufflé on steroids, sweeping away the fragile infrastructure of her life.
But she's fine. Really. She is.
Or so she thinks.

Todd Best isn't fine. He knows it. And doesn't care.
After his wife died—the woman who believed in him when he was a struggling artist—he put painting aside, moved from their home, and lost himself in the minutiae of daily life.
Alone. Private. The way he likes it.
The last thing he needs is some chatty cook seeping into the perfectly bland canvas of his life.
Or so he thinks.

So when Jonathan, a guardian-angel-in-training, turns himself into a kitten to help these two lonely souls find a happily ever after together, his assignment ought to be a piece of cake.
Or so he thinks…

"Two heartbroken souls join together to find their happily ever after in the phenomenally written novel entitled Beauty and the Best, by Judi Fennel.

I found Beauty and the Best to be one of the best stories I have read this year, and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a happy ending! Beauty and the Best should not be missed!!" ` Sizzling Hot Book Reviews

loved, loved BEAUTY AND THE BEST! Such a fulfillment of the emotional and physical dreams of a woman who has fought to make her a better life than what she has been dealt with. Desiring above all, Jolie wants her own family filled with love. BEAUTY AND THE BEST is a cute quirky tale full of Jolie's little "naughty girl" mind conversations that make this story amusing and keeps the reader chuckling all the way through. Full of love, emotion and help from "Boots", you will fall in love with BEAUTY

"I had a smile on my face and a sigh of contentment. Beauty and The Best is a happy-go-lucky, sweet, simple romance. The tale is light-hearted but full of emotion. The story stirred in me feelings of falling in love all over again. It was just downright enjoyable to read!"
-Jenn, That's What I'm Talking About

Meet the Author

Judi Fennell has had her nose in a book and her head in some celestial realm all her life, including those early years when her mom would exhort her to “get outside!” instead of watching Bewitched or I Dream of Jeannie on television. So she did—right into Dad’s hammock with her Nancy Drew books.

These days she’s more likely to have her nose in her laptop and her head (and the rest of her) at a favorite writing spot, but she’s still reading either her latest manuscript or friends’ books.

A PRISM Award and Golden Leaf Award winner, Judi is the author of the Mer series: In Over Her Head, Wild Blue Under, and Catch of a Lifetime; the Bottled Magic series, I Dream of Genies, Genie Knows Best, and Leave It To Genie; and the Once-Upon-A-Time Chronicles, featuring Beauty and The Best, If The Shoe Fits, and Fairest of Them All.

Great read!!

Once again, Judi Fennell has written the perfect romance. This is a must-read for all fantasy romance fans. Jolie and Todd both have great sadness in their lives and yet come together and overcome that to create great joy. Judi's characters come alive on the page and you laugh with them and cry with them. I have read all of Judi's previous books and this one is definitely my favorite to date. I cannot wait to read the others in this series. Thanks Judi for another great book!
