I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


Fairy tales aren't ever what they seem . . .

Tuesday Knight's dream of Broadway stardom has flopped, leaving her unemployed and brokenhearted. Ready to quit kissing frogs and make her own happily-ever-after, she takes a job as a princess in Everland, Georgia's historical amusement park.

Mayor Beau Marino lives an unenchanted existence-all work, no play-which is fine by him. After his marriage ended in disaster, the last thing he wants in his life is more drama. But Everland's new free spirit has a talent for getting under his starched collar.

When the town's beloved but bankrupt park might be shut down, Tuesday and Beau face a choice. Can they join forces, save the day-and each other? Or will their fierce battle of wills destroy any chance of a fairy-tale ending?

Vibrant Tuesday Knight is making her way at Everland’s amusement park. Having not made it on Broadway as is her dream, she is making other plans. Mayor Beau Marino is Tuesday’s opposite stiff and orderly the mayor doesn’t often care for Tuesday’s carefree ways. When an offer is presented to him to replace Everland’s amusement park for a market chain he has to consider it. Tuesday tries to work with the mayor to make sure the amusement park stay where it is. Neither one of them is expecting opposites to attract.

In ” an Oyster Shell –  A sweet romance with a great storyline.

The Pearls – I love small town settings they are my favorite. Small towns usually mean quirky characters and Everland does not disappoint. There are a lot of oddball characters in Everland which makes for a fun read.

The juxtaposition of Tuesday and Beau was playful and interesting. Neither Tuesday or Beau really expect opposites to attract. Yet they do and it is an entertaining experience for the reader. They end up working really well together and the unity of the two is refreshing.

The romance, of course, was the star of the book. Tuesday and Beau made for a fun couple. The romance was paced nicely. I liked how everything ended up. It was a great HEA.

The Sand – It was a good book.

4 Pearls!
