Review: Fairytale Beginnings by Holly Martin

A heartwarming romantic comedy.

Love is an open door…except when it keeps slamming in your face.

Hopeless romantic Milly Rose has had her fair share of heartbreak. Obsessed with all things Disney, she refuses to give up on finding her Prince Charming – he’s out there somewhere, isn’t he?

When Milly is given a job to investigate the origins of an historical building in the village of Clovers Rest, she’s not sure what to expect. What she discovers takes her breath away - a beautiful real life Cinderella castle, complete with turrets, a magnificent drawbridge AND a very handsome owner…Cameron Heartstone.

As Milly and Cameron begin to unearth the secrets of Clover Castle, they can’t ignore the intense chemistry building between them. But they’ve both been hurt badly before. Can they take a big leap of faith and find their own happily-ever-after?

A deliciously enchanting read that will delight fans of Rachael Lucas, Lucy Diamond and Miranda Dickinson or anyone who has ever blubbed at a Disney movie. Who says real life can’t be a fairytale?

My Thoughts:
This book left me with a big smile on my face. What a fabulous and witty read. I absolutely adored this clever modern day twist on traditional fairytale romance.

With her clever attention to detail Holly succeeds in creating a ripping good read. Milly with her pink spiked Hair, sparkling pink Converse trainers and bundles of energy is no light headed bimbo. Cameron too is more than just a pretty face with a hot body.

This is one of those books that are so well written that the characters literally come to life. I haven't read anything that I enjoyed so much in this gene since Sophie Kinsella's "The Undomestic Goddess".

Set in the english countryside; The book opens well, is full of surprises, fairytale elements, romance, passion, wit and the necessary misunderstandings. Not only are Milly and Cameron full of surprises but the Castle and surrounding village too making this a great story.

One thing I really like about the ending is that the author didn't tie up all the loose ends leaving a couple of mysteries unsolved and plenty of room for a possible sequel.

Needless to say this a book that I can heartily recommend to all romanic comedy fans and lovers of all things fairytale.

This is the first book I have read by this author and am surprised I've never noticed her books before. Having enjoyed this title so much I am looking forward to discovering more by this author who I expect to easily becomes one of my firm favourites.

(Grateful thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.)
