As a little girl, who loved all things girly, Cinderella was my favorite fairy tale. In fact, I had the entire book memorized before I even started school. So when I had the chance to read If the Shoe Fits, a contemporary fairy tale (minus the fairy and magic part) by Sandra Bricker, I was excited to preview the book.
Julianne is a successful young lawyer who has just opened her own firm with her best friend Will. While things are going well professionally, Julianne has yet to find her Prince Charming, whom she is desperately seeking. The story opens with Julianne narrowly escaping an auto accident, but witnessing an amazing and handsome man rescue a dog. Wow. Amazing, handsome, AND he loves animals?? How can this man not be her perfect match? As fate would have it, he leaves his toolbox and a boot (nod to Cinderella) at the scene of the accident. Julianne places an ad in hopes that the handsome owner will claim his belongings and that she can claim his heart in the process. As time...
This book was excellent and I highly recommend it, especially to those interested in historical fiction or Hemmingway. I really liked Hadley's character and also the dialogue regarding the social circle they kept - pretty racy and eccentric.

I was lucky to get an advanced copy and I loved this book! The characters have depth and are relatable. It's not just the fairy tale updated. It has its own storyline influenced by the fairy tale. We all know that romances have happy endings, but how the characters get there is what I love about this book.
The love sorry aside, I appreciate that the main characters are lawyers but are shown with integrity even when representing an unsavory character. Also, it shows them having real lives with real problems. Thanks for giving me a read that shows lawyers can be good at what they do and be good people too.
Back to the love story, it was fantastic! I will for sure be a re-read for me. Love the writing style: easy to read without being juvenile. It's witty, funny, and engaging. Read it and you will love it too!
I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of this book from the author. I wanted an advanced copy after I read the synopsis..."Julianne used to believe in fairy tales; she's been watching for Prince Charming to come charging in on his white steed ever since the day her mother read her Cinderella for the first time. But she's never come close to finding the perfect man-instead she's always tripping over her childhood best friend, Will." Every girl searches for her "perfect love story!" Since the time we are born, our parents read us countless love stories such as Cinderella, Snow White, and Beauty and the Beast to name a few. We go on date after date, both good and bad, and search for the one perfect guy... and sometimes he is right in front of us. Julianne, our key character, has everything. She has a perfect job, wonderful friends, and great mother. The only thing she is missing in her fairy tale is love. Throughout the book, we join her journey in search of her perfect love stor...
