Book Review:

I just love reading fairy tales and if I find that a book is even loosely based on a fairy tale, well, I just have to go and read it, even if it means jumping my scheduled reads!

Second Chance Cinderella by Sharon Kleve had me reliving the excitement I feel when I know that the magic of true love is about to happen!

I loved the name which defintely has the keyword that had me accepting to read the book even when I wasn't accepting new books. Then when I saw the cover, I loved it! Beautifully portraying a happily in love pair with the Fairy Godmother's magic pumpkin carriage and famous the glass slippers, it is both eye catching as well as a promise of a magical romance.

The blurb is also interesting and grabbed my attention.

Four girlfriends wish for their own happily-ever-after but are conscious of the flaws in their appearances. Wishing to be just like Cinderella who transformed into a beautiful and confident woman for one night and found her Prince Charming, their wish is granted when they jokingly wish on a magic locket, never thinking that it is truly magical!
This story is about Raven, a shy but very talented Phlebotomist in a prominent Portland, Oregon hospital. She likes Dr. Taylor Quinn but is afraid that he, being so handsome, will never notice her plain looks. Quinn admires Raven's expertise in her field but is unable to talk to her because of her shyness. 
Transformed into a most beautiful and confident woman for 24 hours, will Raven be able to tell Quinn about her true feelings? 
Will she have a HEA just like Cinderella did?
Is being more beautiful the real requirement for finding true love?

This is the first book by Sharon that I have read and I loved her writing style. She was able to carry forward a story that started two books before and that too, by two different authors and never even for a instant did I feel like I was missing something. I loved her simple sentence construction which despite its simplicity was able to hook me and had me eagerly turning the pages.

The characterization is expertly done. I met Raven and was instantly drawn to her. She is someone I could relate to and felt like I already knew her. Her other three friends are just introduced here and still I feel like I know them and am eager to read their stories too. Quinn is a hero reminiscent of the fairy tale Prince Charming and had me smiling contentedly knowing that he was the right choice for Raven. I loved their chemistry and feel that they are made for each other.

Above every other beautiful aspect of this book, the thing I loved the most was the message that the book gives. The lesson Raven learns in the end is a lesson we all should incorporate in our lives. 

"I don't worship perfection, I don't even like it very much. Everything is perfect until it breaks. Only in the mending do you know true quality." ~Author Unknown

While this book can be read standalone, it is always recommended that you read the books in order.

Although, I absolutely loved the book but still I feel that it ended too soon. The characters could have been given more depth and the story expanded to add more challenges which definitely would have made this a more entertaining read. However, all this can be attributed to my love for the characters. I just didn't want to leave them and would love to read more about them in the future books.

All in all, Second Chance Cinderella is a feel good romance and a quick read that will leave you with a goofy smile and a heartfelt happiness of witnessing two people get their HEA. 4 out of 5 to it and strongly recommended to all romance and fairy tale lovers. Having read and enjoyed this book, I will surely checkout the other books in this series and more books by Sharon Kleve.

I received the book from the author and I am very thankful to her. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.
