What happens when the glass slippers pinch Cinderella's toes?

When Jaine Andersen proposes a new marketing role to the local amusement park, general manager Dylan Callahan charms her into filling Cinderella’s glass slippers for the summer. Her reign transforms Jaine’s ordinary life into chaos that would bewilder a fairy godmother. Secretly dating her bad boy boss, running wedding errands for her ungrateful sisters, and defending herself from the park’s resident villain means Jaine needs lots more than a comfy pair of shoes to restore order in her kingdom.

First in the Storybook Valley series, a blend of sweet romance, chick lit, and fairy tale fun.

We get the basic elements in this story that comprise a lot of romance novels that are currently out: girl dates hot guy, there's a workplace and/or family issue, girl and hot guy break up, workplace and/or family issue is resolved, then the couple reunite and ride off into the sunset with their HEA.

Now, just from reading those 3 lines, you might think this isn't the book for you. But if you're looking for a light, sweet romance without a convoluted plot that could make your brain melt,  this is the book for you.

This is a cute story with a updated twist to the Cinderella story we all grew up reading. Jaine's sisters don't mistreat her, but they do take advantage of her and her good nature, so I was glad to see when she finally stood up to her sisters, especially Bree, who apparently is the queen of backhanded compliments. It's an eventful summer for Jaine and all of the wackiness that ensues, but everything comes together in the end and makes for a fun read. I can't wait to read the next book in the series, hopefully it will be Krystal's turn at romance.

Stacy Juba got engaged at Epcot Theme Park and spent part of her honeymoon at Disneyland Paris, where she ate a burger, went on fast rides, and threw up on the train ride to the hotel. In addition to working on her new Storybook Valley chick lit/sweet romance series, Stacy has written books about ice hockey, teen psychics, U.S. flag etiquette for kids, and determined women sleuths. She has had a novel ranked as #5 in the Nook Store and #30 on the Amazon Kindle Paid List. 

When she’s not visiting theme parks with her family, (avoiding rides that spin and exotic hamburgers), or writing about them, Stacy helps authors to strengthen their manuscripts through her Crossroads Editing Service. She is currently writing the next book in the Storybook Valley Series, Prancing Around with Sleeping Beauty.
