Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A riches-to-rags and back again romantic comedy that takes a bit of getting into but do persevere for come page 60-odd it really takes off. It is very much the Cinderella story complete with evil step mum and two ugly (well, irritating bitches) sisters, only it’s the contemporary media world and great fun.

Comparison: Patricia Scanlan, Carmen Reid, Sophie Kinsella.

If you like Claudia Carroll you might also like to read books by Sophie Kinsella, Marian Keyes and Wendy Holden.

Synopsis

Personally, I Blame My Fairy Godmother by Claudia Carroll

The fairytale ending was just the beginning! Jessie Woods absolutely believes in fairytale endings. So would you if you had a recession-proof career as a daredevil TV host, a palatial pink mansion, and the dream boyfriend. But, quicker than you can say Cinderella, her life falls to pieces and suddenly her prince isn't quite so charming, her party-loving friends disappear and even her faithful friend Visa no longer loves her! Utterly heartbroken and jobless, Jessie is forced back home, to live with her stepmum and two evil stepsisters. Is it time for her to give up on the dream - or will Jessie learn that happy endings can come in the strangest of places? Avon's hot new acquisition presents a tale of princes who turn out to be frogs, Manolo Blahnik glass slippers and not-so-happily-ever-afters!

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

I love Lovereading because of its ability to connect people that love books & unite them in a friendly, stimulating & interesting community.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
