Cinderella never had it so bad. In this darkly comedic retelling of the classic fairy tale, her woes become worse when she discovers she has leprosy. Being chosen as the prince’s bride seems more unlikely than ever, but in a world where everything is turned upside-down, Cinderelleper, as she’s now called, just might have a chance at a happy ending after all.
Cinderelleper is a scathing satire that mockingly combines elements of the sentimental 1950 Walt Disney animated film with the gruesomeness of the Grimm Brothers original tale. Outlandish plot twists take the story beyond parody and into a realm that is both dark and magically absurd.
Sometimes the only way to truly start over is to move. That’s exactly what Elaina Samuels and her unruly band of cohorts decided to do. Elaina, Tawny, Grace, and Steph bought a bed and breakfast in Maine. The trip from Cherry Ridge, Ohio to Portland is a wild and crazy ride, filled with things they never could have foreseen. In this adventure, there\’92s laughter, tears, doubt, and a little danger thrown in to keep them on their toes. Will this relocation to the northeast be the key to real happiness? Or will it test their friendship to the breaking point?
I’m so glad the author continued this series! It makes me feel good reading about these ladies. Elaina, Tawny, Grace and Steph met in a pawn shop, all them doing the same thing, getting rid of their wedding rings. This author writes a humorous, adventurous, loving friendship story that’ll have you loving these ladies. They go through ups and downs of relationships and everyday life with help from each other and sangria. The things these ladies get their selves into, and how the manage the situation at times will have you laughing. The chapter titles are hilarious, they make you want to read the next chapter. Download this series, this is the second book, and laugh and bite your nails waiting to see what’s happening next. Their strong characters with everyday situations, but they have each other. I’d love a trio of friends like these.
When Ben told me he was coming out with a new book I couldn’t wait to read it. I’ve read all of Ben’s poetry and story books, this one is worth the waiting. It’s about the world and the people of today. Drugs, murder, suicide, love and the worlds problems. I loved the story poem, “The Nights End”. Ben also collaborated with a few authors, a sweet surprise. Ford Forkum(love his work) and Susie Clevenger, another great poet. Take the time and download this awesome poetry book.
I can’t even fathom going through this!!! That said: What a scary, twisting, outrageous read!! Totally came out at a great time with Halloween coming up. It all happens in London, for some reason that’s a great place for this story to take place. The characters are strong and what they go through makes them stronger. You will think differently about “spiders” when your done with this book. Every book I’ve read from this author is better and better. I think this is her best fantasy, phycological thriller yet!
Another hit by this fantastic author! Olivia Pence and Dezz Casey both grew up in a small town in Iowa. Olivia is a word nerd with not many friends. Dezz Casey was also a nerd, you’d think they’d become friends, but all through school Dezz made fun of Olivia, always in competition with her. Olivia left for New York City to work for a magazine called Brillance, Dezz followed her. She didn’t know what to make of that. Dezz is looking a lot different from their school days when he was a skinny geek, he now was six foot of man candy. He’s such a pain in her butt, they’re always trying to up one another at work. The constant rivalry between them was getting to the boss and killing the atmosphere around the office. Their boss was sick of it and sent them on a two week journey to write about serendipitous things. Will their time away from each other ease their rivalry or flare up something else? The humor is off the wall in this book. Will the romance this author is known for creep into the story? These two characters are so much alike, they throw stones at each other constantly! Great read!
