I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you, NetGalley, for this ARC.
Overall rating: 3/5
Overall, I really enjoyed this story. It was a enjoyable contemporary retelling of a classic fairy tale. I did have some issues with the major instalove since that’s one of my most hated plot lines in stories. The characters were just okay to me. They were nothing special, but I did enjoy reading about them.
It bothered me a little that both main characters have this abandoned by mom subplot. I think it might have worked if just one of them had that background for how they grew up, but found it a little weird that both did.
It was an enjoyable holiday read, but probably won’t be something I’m itching to reread over an over again.
