Comments: A very unique twist on the Cinderella story. I really enjoyed this light read. The author pulls things together nicely and keeps it interesting. I like the love story and the supporting characters. I also think the stepmother was written pretty perfectly, you really loathe her. One last very important note. I feel like this author wrote this book with the series in mind, she put many hints and twisting info where Book 2 can be inserted. I award that forethought.
