The Trouble with Fairies by Pam McCutcheon
The Trouble With Fairies is . . . they’re awfully hard to get rid of.
Kate Fairburn is exasperated with her charming but irresponsible husband, Nick. Her recent promotion at a prestigious New York accounting firm requires long hours and additional work, but instead of helping with her stress, Nick just adds to it. As a children’s book writer and illustrator, he should have plenty of time to stay home to watch their five-year-old daughter, take care of their Welsh corgi, and manage their finances and the house. So, why doesn’t he do it?
Nick feels like a failure. Though his wife’s career is soaring, his has hit a dead end with a terminal case of writer’s block. Worse, ever since her promotion, Kate is no fun anymore. Where did her whimsy go? He’s trying as hard as he can to do everything and find a bestselling idea for his next book, but doing housework and paying bills aren’t his strong suits. When Nick forgets to enroll their daughter in kindergarten and pay some important bills, Kate gives him an ultimatum—grow up and act responsibly, or she’ll file for separation.
Desperate to keep their family together, Nick impulsively enlists the help of a family of wild and wacky Irish brownies to win back his estranged wife. Unfortunately, the cure may be worse than the disease.
