Prince Charming and Cinderella are divorced with the former owning and running a bookstore under the name of Dave Encanto. As a single dad he raises their two offspring far from the fairy tale happily ever after life of a royal in the Third Kingdom as the people blamed him for the split with Ella. Also in exile from the Third Kingdom is Mellie who is upset with being stereotyped as evil because she happens to be a stepmother whose life was ruined by rumors of her abusing her stepdaughter Snow White. Angry with the injustice caused by those mean spirited Grimm brothers for her and her cohorts, she goes to a book fair to protest the lying portrayal of her and other stepmothers as malicious malevolent; she wants her Stephanie Meyer's Twilight moment as the vampires have recently been redeemed. Mellie and Charming (along with his distrusting daughters) meet; he offers to help her write the true story of her and Snow White. Neither expected an attraction to spring up between them. This is an amusing satirical take on images, public spins, and the publishing industry as Kristine Grayson provides a charming "fractured fairy tale" that the late Jay Ward would have enjoyed. Filled with jocularity, a clever romance, and an Imp of a child (and her sister) fearing the evil stepmother, fans will enjoy what happens following the happily ever after classic fairy tales; in this addition it does not guarantee a happy ending.

This is a story about what really happened to Snow White's Wicked Stepmother and how life has treated her. There is a lot of humor in this book. I'll definitely be looking for other books from this author.

“Wickedly Charming” is a fun and different love story. It took me a couple of chapters but then I was caught and enjoyed it immensely

When I first read the summary, I assumed that it was speaking hypothetically. That there was a poor guy in the real world whose story was a lot like Cinderella and Prince Charming, but it didn't work out, and Mellie is just an average stepmom struggling with stereotypes. That's not what I got. When I realized that Charming was literally written to be THE Prince Charming who was divorced Ella and come to our world, LA to be exact, I was shocked. And then I learned that Mellie, aka Melvina wasn't just any stepmom. She was SNOW WHITE'S stepmom. Except Snow's story isn't exactly accurate... Once I realized that, I really got into the novel. A third of the way in, I got really irritated because the summary is a little flawed. Charming starts his bookstore after meeting Mellie, probably not until abouthalfway into the book, at least. And Mellie isn't trying to correct society's view on step moms because she knows it worked for vampires. She doesn't learn about the whole vampires story until after Charming tells her. So, all in all, the summary is chronologically incorrect and didn't do a good job of representing the story. My personal opinion? They threw the vampire thing in there to grab attention, which they did, but it could have been placed better just so nitpicky readers like me don't get their panties in a bunch. But aside from the back, this book was a REALLY great read. It was like reading a story, within a story, within a story. You've got fairy tale characters in the United States trying to change their lives, debunking of fairy tales we know and love, and all through a book. This book basically does exactly what happens in the book's story and it manages to give us good examples too. Like vampires becoming romantic and sexy and the Wicked Witch of the West becoming a sympathetic character. It shows us just how much of an effect books can have on people's opinions, not just once, but twice. PLUS, it's a romance novel. Can't get much better than that. ;) Like I said, this was a really good book. If you're open to "women's fiction" at all, I encourage you to read it. I unexpectedly enjoyed this book, and now I can't wait to go find more in the series ;)
