Unfortunately, book one of the Suddenly Cinderella series is not a fairy tale. There are some magical moments, but overall the characters don’t connect, their emotions seem forced and the narration is mediocre. Most of the book is predictable, containing an oft-used plot where single girl meets single dad and they live happily ever after. On the plus side, it is comical at times and the sequel has potential.

Features editor at a hip women’s magazine, Macie Graham is almost fired when the publication loses one of its biggest sponsors thanks to Ross Mannon. Ross, the host of a popular conservative radio program, disagrees with an article written by Macie and slanders her name on his show. To get even, Macie poses as “Martha Jane Gray,” and is hired by Ross, single father of a teenage girl, as a housekeeper and to help with his parenting skills. Macie intends to use the opportunity to dig up enough dirt to save her job. But as Macie gets to know the real Ross, she’s unsure if revealing her big discovery is worth losing the only love she’s ever known. (ENTANGLEDPUBLISHING.COM, dl $2.99)
