Cinderella and her Prince Charming make just that - a charming modern day twist on an old classic. Cindy, a janitor who cleans executive offices crashes a ball given by a major corporation where she meets Thorn Prince, a high-ranking executive. For one night, they have a special moment in time. And just like the original Cinderella, she leaves behind a part of her (besides her heart, obviously!) - her mother's pearl comb. Assuming that she works for his company, Prince sets out to find her, but to no avail. She reappears in his life to reclaim her lost comb only to disappear again.

Cindy and Prince's story is sweet and charming but ultimately a bit shallow and full of fluff. Still, as a short story with limited time to fully develop characters, it was a truly charming read.

The second story was a different matter. Some Kind of Wonderful is a modern twist of Beauty and the Beast but reads more like Hades and Persephone. John McFarland has business dealings with Judy Lovin's father. When it appears her father's business venture will fail without assistance from McFarland, McFarland offers to rescue the business in exchange for Judy's presence on his secluded island. The father, naturally, refuses. Yet, Judy decides to go on her own since her love for her father is that deep. While a free-prisoner on his island, McFarland treats Judy abysmally. Yet the reader is supposed to somehow see that through his hard exterior lies a soft interior. And because of that soft interior, the reader is supposed to forget that McFarland is essentially holding Judy hostage on his island. I never really connected with either character because it was hard to find McFarland's redeeming characteristics.

And so, with Cindy and Prince's story ranking a four out of five stars and Judy and McFarland's story ranking a two, this book averaged a three out of five stars for me.

    These two were very adorable love stories. I liked the unconventional approach to romance. The second story hardly believable however not improbable. Either way if is well written and captivating.

    I love all books and Debbie Macomber is one of my favorite authors, but this book, sadly, fell short of her others. It was still a fantastic book and a great read, but having read some of her other works I was slightly disappointed. I would still recommend to readers though.

    Adult Fairy Tale

    This book is a fairy tale for adults. There is no magic wand, but there are fantastic coincidences. This is a lovely guilty read in the winter since the are so hopeful and not uncomfortably raunchy. I say guilty since it is fiction, I am not learning anything, and it is based on the fairy tales I loved as a little girl.

    Modern day fairytales ... quick, light reads.

    For the price, it was good. Quick easy reads .... definitely embellished to fit the fairy tale story line. Agree with others that the Beauty and the Beast story was better. It had more substance, depth, and character development. First time reading this author and I will probably try reading her other books.

    Second story was better

    The first story was OK, but the second one more than made up for it.

    A Cinderella Story

    There is something comforting about a Macomber novel. You know the beginning, middle and end before you even start reading, but reading her novels is like eating comfort food. This is a story where the cleaning lady finds her prince.
