Fooling Around With Cinderella @StacyJuba #Kindle



Genre: Romantic Comedy/Young Adult/Chick Lit

Description:
“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.”

Appraisal:
Jaine Andersen is a smart, marketing job seeker who has decided that, after visiting with her young niece, an aging, family-owned amusement park needs her expertise. Storybook Valley Amusement Park isn’t looking for a marketing director but agrees to review her proposal. What the park's new general manager, Dylan Callahan, does need is a new Cinderella. So with a promise from the handsome general manager to add a marketing position in the fall, Jaine agrees to don the Cinderella costume and learn how things are run at the park from the inside.

The quirky characters make this story a pleasurable journey as Jaine learns about this unique family, the business, and its employees.  When Jaine discovers her high school nemesis is employed in upper management at Storybook Park and the woman is after Dylan’s job, all bets are off. With Jaine’s own sisters demanding her time for their needs and devices, things in her own life start to fall apart.

It is always great to watch a strong female wade through the twists of a plot and manage to keep her dignity intact while dealing with circumstances beyond her control. There is a nice balance achieved in this story and I would recommend it for a satisfying beach read. I can’t wait to see who the next story is about; there are so many interesting character choices for Ms. Juba to choose from.
