Image of If the Shoe Fits: A Contemporary Fairy Tale

Bricker finds a sweet way to tell a love story with this modern twist on a fairy tale. Will and Julianne have a comfortable and reliable friendship, but Julianne’s initial lack of attraction toward Will makes it difficult to feel a lot of chemistry. While this book has a predictable ending, it is fun to take the journey with the characters in getting there.

Julianne has just started a new law firm with her best friend Will, but she feels like life will only be happily ever after once she finds her Prince Charming. Then she runs into the man she believes is her prince. But he leaves before she can get his name. She’s determined to track down her apparent soul mate. Will has been in love with Julianne for as long as he can remember. But she has never seen him that way. Can he help her see that her prince has been right in front of her all this time, before it’s too late? (River North, Jul., 288 pp., $14.99)
