If the Slipper Fits by Elaine Fox

Anne Sayer learned long ago that fairy tales don't come true. Connor Emory was the "prince" of a rich and powerful family and she was the "hired help," and for one glorious Maine summer, it was heaven. But evil stepmothers do exist, so Anne's "happily-ever-after" — wasn't.

Dashing, charismatic, and successful, Connor never understood what happened all those years ago, but he's sure now it was for the best. As the reigning heir to the family estate, he returns to Candlewick Island for one reason only: to sell the cursed castle where his heart was broken and dismiss from his life the woman responsible. But Anne, now more beautiful and confident than ever, no longer fits his memory — and Connor is intrigued. But enough so to risk his heart again?

A long way from the girl she had been, Anne knows what she wants. Armed with a scheme to save the estate and aided by a houseful of eccentric cohorts, this "Cinderella" intends to win back her prince. Because the glass slipper that would never have fit a decade ago is the perfect size now ...

This is the first book that I have read by Elaine Fox. I grabbed it because it was cheap and the cover looked interesting. It was a very poor girl/rich guy love story and a little Cinderella esque. It was cute and an easy read.

It dragged on in many places to the point where I skipped some of the paragraphs and it told only from the girls point of view - rarely did you hear anything about Conners feelings - his were always so questionable. So disappointing because Elaine Fox has written other great books, this just wasn't one of them.

It's kind of one of those books that you read when you have nothing better to do, and nothing else on the bookshelf, but overall it was enjoyable. Athough at some parts in the story I just felt that the author kept repeating herself over and over again until I felt like I'd rather be off counting grains of sand on some foreign beach.

I usually read historicals so this was my first contemporary. It was entertaining and the characters were great. I especially liked the Uncle, who was always up to something. However, I thought Anne was just too forgiving towards Connor when he didn't trust her until after he'd been able to prove her story. I thought if he loved her, like her grandma said in the book, he would've just stayed and trusted her. I did like the book though and would recommend it as a good contemporary read.

Years ago, reticent commoner Anne Sayer and wealthy heir Connor Emory fell in love on Candlewick Island, Maine. However, with no reason as far as Connor can tell, Annie abruptly terminates their relationship. A hurt Connor flees the island never to return until the recent death of his father left him in charge of the vast family business holdings including the Sea Bluff Inn on Candlewick.

Anne surprises Connor, as she seems mature and confident in her abilities to perform as an event coordinator unlike the shy person he knew and loved. He also is disgusted with himself because though he does not rust her he still desires her with all his heart. Still he refuses to make any overtures as he will not allow his heart to be battered, but Anne is no longer the timid person who let her beloved get away. Somehow she knows this Cinderella must earn her Prince Charming¿s trust and eventually explain what happened to destroy their first relationship.

IF THE SLIPPER FITS is a charming second chance at love retelling of the Cinderella story. The lead characters are a delightful duo especially Connor who learns the truth about the undermining of his beloved. Though Anne¿s assured nature seems stretched following what she endured from so called loved ones; fans will enjoy Elaine Fox¿s modernization of Cinderella.
