Never Too Old For Fairy Tales
The Magic Of Christmas by Nora Roberts contains two modern day fairy tales showing you are never too old for fantasy and make believe. Both have characters that warm the reader’s heart. Did I have a favourite? No, both were similar but different and I enjoyed escaping for a few hours.
A word of caution – for me there was a little too much detail in the bedroom scenes so I skipped over them. It did not detract from my overall enjoyment of the novel though.
The Playboy Prince is a contemporary romantic adventure. There are the themes of trust and deception as masks are worn to conceal true characters. It is a Cinderella story with agents and spies as destruction and devastation are planned. A dashing prince and a loving close knit family mean there is something for everyone as the reader escapes for the afternoon.
Charmed is a contemporary fantasy fairy tale that deals with witches, wizards, fairy princesses and frogs. It has the themes of love, loss, healing and new beginnings. There is a delightful young girl who will warm your heart. Another afternoon’s escape.
