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!

Reader Advisory: Feel-good romance with humor and heart! Mild sexual content and mild profanity. For fans of quirky love stories.


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 Internet company designed to match people with their most avid desire. Maybe Georgie and Bryce weren't meant to be after all.

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. I received an eArc copy of the title from the author via Tour Company for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Such a sweet story! I love older brother's best friend/unrequited teenage crush stories, and Marry Poppins is a great example of one :) At the book's start, both Bryce and Georgie aren't having the best of luck. Bryce has just gotten custody of his twin niece and nephew, five-year-olds he didn't know existed until his sister died and left them in his care. Oh, and he's about to get dumped...a few yards shy of the actual altar, so that's better, yes? Georgie's bracing herself to watch the guy she's been in love with for years walk down the aisle with someone else--she's dressed to kill, but she's also written to (the series titular Impossible Dream) to try and salvage her greatest desire...four weeks ago. Complete radio silence in return. Oh, and she's out of work and about to be evicted from her apartment. Can't anything go right? Then Bryce gets dumped, Georgie offers to move in as his nanny. Next thing she knows, she's whisked off to London on the honeymoon-that-wasn't, and sharing closer quarters than she'd planned on with her new employer. Surely nothing could go wrong here? ;) In the timeline of the story, Bryce and Georgie's relationship moves pretty fast, but since they've known each other forever it's pretty believable. Some of the events stretch the boundaries of believability a bit (their reason for marrying so quickly, for example, and Bryce's blowup near the end) but the rest of the story is so darn cute and Bryce and Georgie are so clearly supposed to be together it's easy to forgive the clunkier bits. There's an absolutely awesome secondary romance going on throughout as well--I kind of wish those two had gotten their own book as well, but am willing to admit it worked nicely into this book. (And woot! It was a great example of the opposite of one of my pet peeves, which was fantastic :)) Overall this was a sweet read that will leave you with a happy case of the warm fuzzies. It worked fine as a standalone as well--though naturally now I want to read the first two ( Beauty & the Biker and Enchanting Christmas ) as well. Now I just have to find time to do so before Emma's book ( No Place Like Nowhere ) comes out... Rating: 4 stars/ B+ I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Dreams and wishes can come true with the help of self-confidence and a dose of 'I Believe Magic'. has made magic for many. Georgie Poppins believe that its her turn to have a little of that magic, but as time drones on she begins to doubt. Up to the day and time that, who but the one, Bryce Morgan, she has wanted comes in and she was the one that he needs. You must not forget this was all for convenience and one must not depend too much on dreams coming true. With magic in the air and sparks flickering as magic tries to bloom a destined romance, things happen to make their world come to a slow down. Almost a complete stand still. Georgie and Bryce must make some hard decision and come to terms with reality of their past and the reality of life. A steady paced romance with strong secondary character that you will like if not love. There was a strong friendship base for both lead characters. Each were well rounded and well thought out. I found Marry Poppins to be worth any romance readers time and effort. I also would venture to say just based on this read from the series to go out and get them all. **This ARC was provided via Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.**

There is romance everywhere in Nowhere in this book. If you've been waiting on two of Nowhere's given couples to get together, this book is for you!

In this 3rd book in the Impossible Dream series, the primary focus is on Georgie Poppins, one of the lifelong friends who call themselves the Inseparables. Georgie is as good-hearted as the day is long, but she has made some poor life choices and just can’t seem to get ahead. She decides to apply to Impossible for her ultimate dream come true – a nanny job with the possibility of marriage. Impossible worked for Inseparables Bella and Chrissy (in books 1 and 2 of the series), so it had to work for Georgie, right? Not so fast! The story takes some wonderful twists and turns with some scary stuff near the end that had me holding my breath a little bit. I loved every minute of this story so much so that I slowed myself down to keep from finishing it too quickly!! I also really enjoyed the secondary story lines that carry you into the next books. I hope there are many more to come! If you enjoy stories with strong women as lead characters, some healthy romance that is a good mix of sweet and hot, some anxiety inducing events and happy endings, you will thoroughly enjoy Beth Ciotta’s storytelling.
