Fooling Around With Cinderella

Fooling Around With Cinderella

What happens when the glass slippers pinch Cinderella’s toes? When Jaine Andersen proposes a new marketing role to the local amusement park, general manager Dylan Callahan charms her into filling Cinderella’s glass slippers for the summer. Her reign transforms Jaine’s ordinary life into chaos that would bewilder a fairy godmother. Secretly dating her bad boy boss, running wedding errands for her ungrateful sisters, and defending herself from the park’s resident villain means Jaine needs lots more than a comfy pair of shoes to restore order in her kingdom. First in the Storybook Valley series, a blend of sweet romance, chick lit, and fairy tale fun.

“Toasting author Stacy Juba with glass slippers bubbling with champagne! I absolutely LOVE Fooling Around with Cinderella – Stacy’s created an enchanting place I want to visit. Fabulous characters, a drop-dead funny, gorgeous heroine (with glasses), some real sisters who need a few good verbal whacks, a nasty villain, and so much more. I loved it and want MORE!”
Elaine Raco Chase, award-winning romance author

“I just loved every bit of this novel, from start to finish; what a brilliant read! The combination of chick lit and fairy tale just works so well, if you ask me, and Stacy Juba created a thoroughly enjoyable and fun read which I can’t recommend enough to any romantic comedy fan out there.”
A Spoonful of Happy Endings

“Stacy Juba does a stellar job of recreating a well loved fairytale in modern settings…The story is well paced with expertly planned twists, emotional plays and added doses of humour, relationship study, romance and suspense. This is a great start to a new series and definitely a must read. All in all, Fooling Around With Cinderella had me thoroughly entertained and I loved every second of it.”
NJKinny’s World of Books & Stuff

“5 Stars. Friends, love interests, and a stepmother who’s not wicked, merely thoughtless. Sisters who are beautiful and definitely not after her man. Then of course there’s Prince Charming. Put this all together and it becomes a fun filled book with romance and of course conflict. A really good read that kept me intrigued until the last page.”
Long and Short Reviews, Reviewing Fiction One Happy Ever After at a Time

– Diana’s Book Reviews

“This is the perfect but quick book you can read in one sitting and it is surely to be a big hit along with the series that is to come! Thank You to Stacy Juba for writing such a good book that I can’t wait to see what is next!!”
– Holly’s Honest Reviews

“After reading the blurb for this I knew it was a must read, and turns out, I was right. This was a great update on a classic that everyone loves.”
– Julie Baswell, I Create Purty Thangs Blogspot

“This version of Cinderella has everything the story needs–an overworked, under-appreciated heroine, a fairy godmother, a magical transformation, a handsome prince, the left-behind forgotten footwear…even the stepmother and “evil” sisters are here, though the true villain turns out to be someone outside the usual suspects. To top it all off, it’s a sweet romance that you’d feel comfortable letting your younger teen read. Did I mention I’m looking forward to the rest of the series?”
Becky on Books…And Quilts

“If you’re a fan of the fun contemporaries that make you smile, I would definitely recommend Fooling Around with Cinderella.”

Fooling Around with Cinderella was certainly a guilty pleasure read for me and I highly recommend it.”
Juniper Grove

“I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has a bit of everything – mystery, romance and humour – and is written in a way that draws a reader in, envelopes them in the story, and makes them believe that they are actually there, walking alongside the characters as they play their part.”
– Anne-Marie Reynolds, Reader’s Favorite

Bookish Bevil

“If you’re after a quick read, that will pick you up and put a smile on your face then Fooling Around with Cinderella will certainly do that for you.”
Whispering Stories

“It would have been easy to let this sink into a cliched retelling of Cinderella, but that doesn’t happen. Although there are recognisable elements (demanding and ungrateful sisters, step mother taking her father away) this is original and engaging. If you enjoy clean adult romance with a happily ever after, then do give this a go.”
Reading Lark

“I just love reading about the characters who will someday be featured in a book of their own. I feel like reading about a series centered in a town draws you in and makes you a part of it. This is the kind of series I just can’t resist. Fooling around with Cinderella fits into this obsession of mine perfectly.”

“A great story about a woman learning to stand up for herself, find out who she is, and maybe find her prince charming on the way. I very much enjoyed this very sweet and charming story.”
Boundless Book Reviews

“It is always great to watch a strong female wade through the twists of a plot and manage to keep her dignity intact while dealing with circumstances beyond her control. There is a nice balance achieved in this story and I would recommend it for a satisfying beach read. I can’t wait to see who the next story is about; there are so many interesting character choices for Ms. Juba to choose from.”
BigAl’s Books and Pals

“The setting of the amusement park is intricate and well-done, and makes it seem as if the reader is getting a behind-the-scenes peek. The love story was filled with push/pull and witty banter, but when combined with a sigh-worthy hero, it’s enough to make any woman swoon. This is the first book in the Storybook Valley series and, with enchanting characters like these, readers will be anxious for more!”
Ind’Tale Magazine

“It was a book that held my attention and I was sorry to see it end! It was a clean read and I will definitely be looking for the next book in this series.”
