This book was hilarious. My kids thought I'd lost my mind, I was laughing so much. Everything about this book was great. The twists on the stories, characters, dialog was all written so well and so cleverly. I especially liked how all the stories tied together. Definitly worth the 3 bucks. Will buy more from this author =)

Fairy Tale Flirts! By Lisa Scott
5 Romantic Short Stories
Cindi Midas life was much different when her parents were alive. She went from having a doting father to being stuck with a hateful stepmother and stepsisters. Cleaning their apartment at Grimm Towers for room and board. She needed a life change. And that changed the day she went to the Jiminy Shoe trunk sale and met Henry Hubbard.
Rose used to be carefree long ago. Before her mother died. Now she ran her struggling bakery of healthy muffins and breads. She only has Grandma Kate but she's not acting herself lately. Like what’s a girl to do when she visits her grandmother and finds her in a disheveled state with a tall, dark and handsome man in her apartment? A man befitting his last name, Wolff.
Belle Foster was off to Grimm Towers to build Prince Maxim’s bookshelves, a job her father was working on before his stroke. The mysterious prince stayed hidden because of an accident. Could Belle prove to the elusive prince that life was worth living more than worrying about what people would think of you?
Shawna White wanted to use her singing and dancing talents, like her mother had done as a ballerina. Her widowed stepmother was after husband number three and talked Shaw into being a nanny of her newest husband target Jeremy James, father of seven. Hi ho, hi ho, off to work she did go.
Goldie Lockston is a bit of a vagabond. She has a home with her parents but would rather not stay there. When she helps a friend with a dog sitting job she decides to stay at the apartment. It's not like Blake Behr, the owner, will know and she's really doing him a favor with round the clock dog sitting, right?
I enjoy the way the author weaves her characters together in these stories. A character from one story will be mentioned in passing in a different one or be at the same place. All interwoven slightly into the stories in some small way.

Lisa Scott's modern day view of such classical tales like, Cinderella, Snow White and Beauty and the Beast is pure magical adventure for the reader. Cindi is a whimsical treat that got me hooked on this series. The characters are real, fun and emotional which is easy to connect to. Ms. Scotts masterful writing skills weave the identifiable character traits and elements we love from the classics, with new, fresh, modern themes and situations that engage readers and urges them to keep reading. This series was a perfect excuse to stay indoors and dream of fairytale endings on a day where the heat index was over 100 here in the Midwest. Well done Lisa!Was this review helpful?
