This anthology features 5 stories each with their own unique twist on a classic fairy tale. It has a little bit for everyone.
Taken in Death by J.D Robb
Hansel and Gretal meets police procedural. There is a reason why this series is so popular. From the first paragraph I was hooked.
If Wishes Were Horses by Mary Blayney
This a sweet historical romance inspired by Goldilocks and the Three Bears. A young women is searching for her perfect fit.
A unique retelling of Sleeping Beauty. This story is very cute and I enjoyed reading it.
The Christmas Comet by Mary Kay McComas
A modern take on Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Match Girl and The Brothers Grimm's The Star Money. Although this story is very sweet and liked it, I think I would have enjoyed this story a little more if I was familiar with the stories that inspired this one.
Stroke of Midnight by R.C. Ryan
You can guess by the title what fairy tale inspired this story. Of course, its Cinderella. A sweet love story that I enjoyed reading. Sydney had to deal with a horrible step mother most of her life so on a whim she travels to Ireland to visit her father's hometown where she meets "Prince Charming.
