    Miranda Fenster has always believed in fairy tales, even when he

    Miranda Fenster has always believed in fairy tales, even when her life has seemed far removed from them. Unable to secure a husband during the London season, Miranda returned home and ended up staying there. When her parents passed away, she and her twin brother Valentine had to take care of the numerous younger sisters and the entire estate. Valentine sinks into despair when his elopement goes awry, so Miranda takes it upon herself to make things right. Miranda's plans go awry though, and she finds herself in a compromising situation. Soon Miranda's faith in fairy tale endings will be severely tested, and she will find out if her dreams can all come true.

    This was an interesting book on a couple levels. I found the writing to be a bit uneven. The prologue read really smooth and immediately drew me in, but then the first few chapters felt a bit stilted. They were hard to get in to. Things definitely smoothed out though, and I was once again drawn into the story to the point where I didn't want to put it down. I think the author did a great job with the character of Miranda and her love of fairy tales. This could have been a bit annoying after a bit, but the author kept it all balanced so that you understood Miranda's love and connection with the tales while never allowing it to become to saccharine. I found a lot of the supporting characters intriguing, and I wanted to learn a lot more about many of them.

    This book manages to straddle the line between a typical romance novel and a fairy tale. Personally I could have used a little less of the pining for one another, but this aspect was very unique from your typical romance story as they couple in question actually got together fairly early in the story. Their troubles were a bit unique for their situation though. There was also some unique mysteries and twists. I though those were particularly well done, and they kept me on the edge of my seat eager to find out what would happen next. People who love sweet romance books will enjoy this book, as will those who love fairy tale type stories.

    I definitely do not recommend this book. The hero was caught up in some strange moralistic code but it was never explained with any clarity as to why he behaved as he did. He was a thoroughly unlikable character. At times the plot made no sense.

    Alright......

    I didnt enjoy this book. The author made the hero out to be bossy, whiny, and immature. He was plain stupid when it came to the whole moral code thing. The heroine was almost as dumb in her own ways. I finished this novel and acted like the hero...whining the whole way through. Read it yourself and youll see why. Around 550 pages. I gave it 4 stars because Im generous and it is a free read of a good length. I had such high hopes for this historical...could of been so much better.

    Pretty good

    I enjoyed this book and it had an interesting story. It was a fully developed book with a few editing mistakes. There was one scene near the end that was kind of choppy and confusing, but overall nicely done. Loved that it was a full length book for free, that was entertaining to read. Sometimes after you finish reading some of these so-called books you feel like you not only wasted your time, but also killed some of your brain cells. I finished this one cells intact.

    440 TOO LONG

    There were many things about that book that I didn’t like. In fact, it felt like a very bad fan fiction of Pride and Prejudice. There were just TOO many commonalities in the form of events in the story for it NOT to appear like a Pride and Prejudice rip-off.
    Even if I don’t like a book, I will only review it if I have read the entire thing.
    In this case, I read all 600 pages and discovered when I put my nook down that it truly was 440 pages TOO long. I have read 1000 page books before and thought they needed to be longer. But in this case, the author spent WAY too much time on the non-essential, tried to build a mystery and suspense element that fell flat on its face at the first turn, a romance that was okay and not entirely rushed but was childish and very non-romantic in nature. The story had so many different elements that the author was trying to shove in there that NOTHING was successful.
    The editing and formatting was all sorts of out of whack and amateurish. Second, the main character actually hadn’t GROWN from her idealistic childish side in the five years they were apart, even with the added drama and weight of turning out all of her sisters and taking the role of mother and governess. The constant reference to fairy tales, which I know if the premise of the title, horribly disconnected me, the reader, from the actual story and romance. All I could picture was a whiney teen that was drooling over some weird guy with issues. There was way too much internal stuff which was just repetitious and I honestly just skipped over it and went to the dialogue since everything could have been neatly presented through dialogue. The period was an interesting choice, however, I think that there wasn’t enough dialogue research done in order to properly execute it. It felt most early 1900s America than 1800’s England.
    The story was more interesting from the MALE’S POV, however, with the authors inability to completely deliver the storyline, even he couldn’t be saved from the poor story. The author never actually cleaned it up to close out the problems in the story, tidying it up and presenting it with a bow at the end. Simon didn’t want to be Duke why? It really wasn’t explained, it was just OH, I KNOCKED YOUR MOM UP SO WE’RE GOING TO AMERICA, YOU’RE THE DUKE AGAIN. HAVE FUN. Seriously, that’s how you ended it? There was….honestly, there is nothing positive I can say about the actual story or the characters.
    Would I read more of this author’s work? Not a chance.
