250 Word review: The Enchanted Truth, Kym Petrie

250 Word Review: The Enchanted Truth (Kym Petrie)


Summary (From Goodreads.com)
In this humorous and insightful tale, a modern day princess finds herself single and asking for magical intervention to change her sorry love life. Rather than casting a spell to bring Prince Charming to her rescue, a savvy fairy godmother gives the tenderhearted damsel an unexpected gift. By entrusting her true thoughts and desires to an unlikely confidant, the young royal soon discovers that the person who could make her life everything she dreamed it would be has been with her all along.

As author Kym Petrie herself realized, every woman needs a froggy friend and a secret journal—and enough adventures with the girls to keep her heart pounding and her mind racing. Life is meant to be about happy beginnings . . . you can never have enough of them.

Plot: ★★★
Characters: ★★★
Readability: ★★
Overall: ★★

My opinion:
I don’t honestly know what to say about this book.  The plot itself was enjoyable, though not what I was expecting.  I loved the modern twist –a heroine who lets her libido get the best of her and a fairy god mother who affects the heroine’s perspective rather than just fixing everything with a flick of a wand.

I found the writing enjoyable and humorous, but just too short for me, almost teaser length.  The ending is not necessarily what you’d expect from a fairy tale, but it does give an important message.  I can certainly imagine it being a good comfort read for a girl beginning to get over a break up or someone bored of dating without luck.  However, on that basis, I personally would not want to pay the full asking price for it (at the moment anyway).  I did really enjoy the storyline, but I think a longer, full novel would be better, since you start getting engrossed in the story for it to end on you!


Buy it?
Definitely a borrow for me
In a nutshell: It was okay – would much prefer it to be longer.

      1. Really?

        Oops. I think I’m kind of a long-type reviewer myself.
        It’s just that I prefer quality reviews rather than the short reviews that say, “Oh, it’s a fast-paced nice book. I love it!”
        Anyway, thanks for answering my question.

        XOXO KIM

        1. Ah see I tend to read one or two long reviews, but if it’s a book like ‘pushing the limits’ or ‘fifty shades of grey’ that’s all over the Internet, I’d rather read a lot of shorter reviews to decide briefly whether I want to get in on the hype!

          No problem, thanks for stopping by 🙂
