A Fairytale Christmas by Susan Wiggs---A Review


Ace reporter Jack Riley loves his job, or at least he did until Madeleine Angston took over as publisher for the Courier. The perfect blonde ice queen is a daunting presence in the newsroom and an irresistible distraction, despite Jack's determination to avoid her as often as possible. Even if it means boycotting her fancy Christmas party.
Then a chance encounter with a stranger transforms Jack from a scruffy journalist into a debonair Texan in a tux, and he suddenly finds himself at the center of Madeleine's attention. As they embark on a fairy-tale evening together, Jack realizes that Madeleine isn't the woman he thought she was…but unfortunately, she no longer recognizes him in his new "Prince Charming" attire! Will Madeleine still be able to love the man behind the suit when she discovers who he really is?


At only 72 pages, A Fairytale Christmas, is a fun and light-hearted read.   It's a spoof on the fairytale Cinderella, only the glass slipper is really a goatskin cowboy boot.

The characters aren't quite as they seem, but they are well rounded and likable in this quick read.    It's a definite twist on an old fairytale and enjoyable from start to finish. And there is a lot of heart and Christmas spirit within.

I rated A Fairytale Christmas 4 winks.
