Book Summary: 


If a dream is a wish your heart makes then Cindee Ellis is in major trouble. There’s no way Henry Christensen will ever notice her under all those oil stains and brake fluid splattered across her shirt. Unless—she’s dead wrong about him. Join her with this real life fairytale set in the small town of Silver Creek to find out how she’ll work her guts out to make her own happily ever after.

Beauty and Beast:

There’s a tale as old as time of two people falling in love, but what happens when Belle won’t have anything to do with it. Join her with this real life fairytale set in the small town of Silver Creek to find out how she’ll transform the town’s beast into a handsome prince with her heart, not her beautician skills.

The Frogg Princess:

Taya is almost there. Join her in this real-life fairytale, set in the small town of Silver Creek, as she plans to start a new life by opening a little restaurant. Only to find a few rude people that don’t seem to welcome her. But that doesn’t seem to bother Felix Frogg, a local police officer, and the love-at–first-sight reactions he keeps tossing her way. If Taya isn’t careful with the way her heart is softening towards Felix, she could be walking into a lifetime commitment of happily ever after that wasn’t in her plans.


I love reading fairy tale spin-offs, and I really enjoyed reading these ones.

Cinderella: I was quickly drawn in to this story, and it was hard to put it down. I enjoyed getting to know the characters, and it was a really cute story.
Content: clean – 1 swear word

Beauty and the Beast: This story had a darker edge to it, but I still really enjoyed reading it.
Content: clean – innuendo

Frogg Princess: I liked how the title plays off the main male character’s name. This was another cute, quick story.
Content: clean

Overall, I really enjoyed these stories. The romances were quick (super quick), but they were still cute stories. I kind of feel the stories would have been better if they were longer and more developed, but I still enjoyed reading them. I look forward to reading more in this series.


Rating: 4 stars – Great Book
