Roses in Amber: A Beauty and the Beast Story by C. E. Murphy

There is a story of a beast, and a merchant’s daughter, and a curse that must be broken.

This is not—quite—that story.

Amber Gryce believes in magic the way anyone does: as a thing of the past, marked now only by the long reign of an ancient queen sworn to live until her stolen son is returned to her. Such stories are romantic but distant for Amber, surrounded by family and wealth.

But like magic, wealth can disappear. Left destitute, Amber’s family retreats to a forest holding far from their city home, where Amber’s love of roses leads her into the heart of enchantment, and draws her into a retelling of the tale as old as time….

I was caught up in the tale from the first line and stayed up way too late to finish it.

This is one of those books that give you faith that the next great read is still out there, if you keep looking. Take a risk on a new (to you) author and you just might find a new favorite. I'm always up for a good Beauty and the Beast retelling, and this one is definitely in the top three. I enjoyed the more adult aspects of the story (would have loved even more), and the narration was excellent -- with the addition of some twists that bring interesting complexity to the story. Overall, a satisfying read -- highly recommended!!
