Review: The Enchanted Truth

Posted by Charlene // Tags: , ,
The Enchanted Truth
by Kym Petrie

Plot Summary:

In this humorous and insightful tale, a modern day princess finds herself single and asking for magical intervention to change her sorry love life. Rather than casting a spell to bring Prince Charming to her rescue, a savvy fairy godmother gives the tenderhearted damsel an unexpected gift. By entrusting her true thoughts and desires to an unlikely confidant, the young royal soon discovers that the person who could make her life everything she dreamed it would be has been with her all along.

As author Kym Petrie herself realized, every woman needs a froggy friend and a secret journal—and enough adventures with the girls to keep her heart pounding and her mind racing. Life is meant to be about happy beginnings . . . you can never have enough of them.

Expectations:

I love fairy tales! So anything that reinvents them is something I would like to read!  And I was curious to see what a fairy tale in a modern world looks like.

Review: 

This is a fun and thoughtful take on what it means to be a princess in a fairy tale. Always longing for something that maybe you can just find inside of yourself. The author uses a setting that invokes the medieval time of fairy tales but uses modern speech and modern items like potato chips and chocolate to relate the princess to the modern woman. The moral in this short tale is something all women of today can take to heart and it is given in a way that is entertaining and sweet.

    1. It's very cute, but really short! So the current Kindle price seems a little high in my opinion - just warning you. :)
