By Lady Sam TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Feb. 20 2013
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Normally, when older stories are republished, you can really tell by the style it was written in. Not in this case, though. I am not sure whether Debbie Macomber revised and updated the tales before republishing or not, in any event, the heroines do feel as if they are twenty-first century women.
The title 'Fairy Tale' is meant literally, too. Essentially, the author adapted Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast to modern day life and did a wonderful job of it. Neither story feels contrived and they are both very believable ... making you wonder whether such events could really happen in real life. I, for one, have heard more 'out there' stories that happened, so why not? We all could do with some fairy tale romance in our lives and live happily ever after. Stranger things have happened ...
Leave it to Debbie Macomber to find a way to adapt fairytales to modern life and succeed marvellously. As always, her writing style is easy and straight-forward, and her storyline involving and interesting. After all, most people know those fairytales from childhood and are most likely intrigued as to just how things will work out.

A pleasure to read Dec 13 2009
By K. Ann Seeton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed this book very much. These are fun and lighthearted. Perhaps less mature in style than her more recent books they are never-the-less a pleasant flight of fancy and worth owning.

Corney, yet Sweet Jan. 2 2010
By NM Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The stories are a bit "hokey", but I enjoyed them anyway. This book contains 2 stories: "Cindy and the Prince" (based on Cinderella) and "Some Kind of Wonderful" (based on Beauty and the Beast.) Both were originally published in the 1980's. In "Cindy and the Prince," Cindy works as a maintenance worker (janitor) at Thorndike Prince's company. They meet at a company party that she crashes. She has to be home by midnight and he searches for her after that. You can guess the rest. In "Some Kind of Wonderful," Judy Lovin's family is about to loose everything if John McFarland calls in their bank note. But he offers a reprieve if she comes to stay with him at his island. Judy's family nickname is "Beauty," and their nickname for John is "Beast." Neither of the stories has very well developed characters, but they are sweet to read, and somewhat realistic. John McFarland, for example, learns that he can't keep his love trapped/captive on his island. He needs to let her go and trust her.

Based on the narrator July 12 2011
By R. R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
You know when you take your kids to Disney World and they see Snow White or one of the other princesses, and how they talk to your toddler in that squeaky sugary sweet voice and how that seems to tickle your toddler? This narrator Teri Clark Linden chose to read the heroine of this adult book, to adults in that kind of a voice. It has been a long time since I wanted to shake another person that badly so that they would stop what they were doing.
She also felt the need to make the mother-in-law character sound like an over-dramatic Katharine Hepburn. She made every man in this book sound like some kind of a sick weirdo instead of a hero.
She is going on my `do not buy this narrator' list.

Both stories were great Dec 20 2009
By ma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Eventhough they were written 20 years ago, both stories were imaginative, had complex characters, and full of heartfelt emotion. This is a book that I will hang on to even after I read it. *****

What a fun listen! March 27 2011
By homeskoolmom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I had read this book several times and enjoyed each time but listening was even better. I heard things that I missed in reading it. I loved the stories and highly recommend it especially if you have read it before. If not then I recommend it for a first time listener. Debbie Macomber always has good stuff.
