#Review - Fooling Around With Cinderella by Stacy Juba ~ Storybook Valley #1

Fooling Around with Cinderella is the first book I have had the chance to read by Stacy Juba. It most certainly will not be my last. Ms. Juba has a lovely writing voice that was enjoyable to read. The Characters are well written with unique characteristics that made for a creatiive storyline that kept me entertained. I have to say I would love to visit Storybook Valley. It sounds like a fun place to visit and Ms. Juba has created attraction and characters that I would love to see. She has done a fabulous job of creating not only a wonderful story but a fun setting that is well described.

Jaine Andersen is the good girl and good sister that does everything for everyone and makes their life easier. She is what she considers a plain Jaine girl. When playing Cinderella is part of her new job requirement she doesn't know how she is going to pull off playing a princess. She has such a huge heart and is great with children. I found a quick attachment and bond to Jaine. She is the perfect character to go from the every day lady to a fine princess decked out in the Cinderella costume.

Jaine's new boss Dylan Callahan is trying to prove he is what Storybook Valley needs for management. He's trying to show his family that he is not just the wild playboy that likes to party. The attraction between Dylan and Jaine is fun and so forbidden that they try so hard to fight their feelings. I loved watching the relationship between Jaine and Dylan grow and change. 

Then there is the wicked witch that is out to put an end to what could be Jaine and Dylan's fairytale ending. She creates drama and mischief in so many ways. She's just not a nice lady and is a huge thorn in Jaine's side and Dylan's too (he just doesn't know it yet). 

Overall I really enjoyed this story. Stacy Juba has done a fabulous job of creating what feels like a real life fairytale with a fun setting, a great storyline, and characters I can't wait to read more about.  

I was given the opportunity to read this great story so that I may share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my pleasure to share my thoughts with you on Fooling Around with Cinderella.
