Once upon a time…
a long time ago
in a land far, far away,
there lived a girl by the name of Cinderella.
This is not her story.
This is the story of Lucinda Isabella Casteleoni,
who, like her namesake,
has a wicked stepmother, two tacky stepsisters,
and countless hours of hard work to (not) look forward to.
But unlike that fairy tale princess,
Bella’s Prince Charming is nowhere to be found.
Until a little old man with sparkling green eyes
opens a shoe store down the street.
Then the magic begins...

This is the second book in the Once-Upon-A-Time Romance by this author. Again, she hits just the right chord between reality and fantasy. Ms. Fennell has taken the age old fairy tale of Cinderella and plunked it right down in today's world, and it's a winner. The story of the evil step-mother, two step-sisters and a charming Prince is told with delightful twists and the requisite happily ever after ending. I was pulled into the story with the first paragraph and didn't put it down until I had finished it. I especially liked how Ms. Fennell incorporated characters from the other book in he series throughout the story. If you haven't read any of her other books, start here because you will find yourself wanting to read them all!
