An original entry in the fantasy genre, “If the Magic Fits” gives us an intrepid heroine hilariously named Darling Dimple. Darling gets a promotion in a castle and finds herself subject to the wayward temper of its mercurial princess, the machinations of jealous rivals and mountains of work. Welcome to upper management.

The story involves sentient castle beasts (that aren’t what they appear) and a wardrobe of animated dresses. It’s a bizarre and funny story, all right. Poor Darling has her hands full, especially when she’s unintentionally aware of a palace intrigue. It’s great stuff and I enjoyed every moment because that question kept repeating itself in my head: what happens next?

While I wouldn’t mind seeing a sequel, this novel works perfectly well as a standalone story.
