My Copy of the Book

Year Published: 2017
Genre: Fantasy; Mystery

Moving on from Cinderella was always going to be hard for Sylvia Stark. A change of direction sends her to create a magazine for stepfamilies called Fairytale Stepmothers Unite. She interviews Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother as well as Snow White and her wicked stepmother. As expected she finds things are not as they seem but a twist of fate brings a mysterious man into her life and sends her reeling. The Land of Make Believe threatens to suck her in unless she can make a firm stand and remember what is most important in life. Getting revenge on those who have hurt her is the icing on the cake.

About the Author:
I was born in Tampa, Florida but grew up in Outback NT Australia. During my 50+ years, I have been married and divorced, a single parent, a mother and a stepmother, in full-time employment and then unable to work due to chronic illness. What I have discovered is that no matter what I face in life, having a twisted sense of humor helps immensely. This is what I bring to my writing.

My Take on the Book:
This was a light and fun read; though I did find that the plot-line jumped around a little bit - as if when one plot-line had run its course, another one was set up in its place. There were times when I thought that Matthew Fraser's character seemed a little bit forced; but I understood why he acted the way he did at the end of the novel. One place where I found a slight gap from the previous book was Daniel Cook - it felt as if I was missing a few pieces over in that area to understand some of Sylvia Stark's situation better. I ended up giving this book a four star reading and got a copy in exchange for an honest review. 

Last Word:
Since I found this book to be quite enjoyable; I'll definitely be reading more of this author's books. This novel took me on a whole reminiscent round of fairy tales - especially the Walt Disney ones.
