I really enjoy Karen Witemeyers books and was so excited to win this book! Fairytale retellings are a favorite of mine also so even better! This book had just enough different elements to keep it a fun read while keeping to the story. It is always fun to see how a author takes the fairy tales and molds it to their setting. The dwarves are perfect, I absolutely loved them! I think Witemeyer makes snow the perfect balance of the classic innocent fairy tale princess but with a good dose of reality to make her come alive. The evil queen has the best name, Narcissa, I really enjoyed how over the top the character was. The only reason this book is a 4 and not a 5 for me is because I got rather tired of reading about bosoms, full figure, etc.… (more)

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher through LibraryThing and NetGalley. The following is my honest review.

4.5 stars

I loved this retelling of Cinderella. The characters are so deep. At first, I really thought that the main character, Samantha, was a little spoiled and pouty. Her father seemed distant and stubborn, but we soon saw why their relationship was rocky. It was lovely to see how much they loved each other. The hero (who is also "Cinderella") is Asher Ellis who is an absolutely wonderful man.

The conversations and dialogue were witty. Also, I appreciated that I didn't guess the ending until far along in the book.

Even if you don't typically go for westerns or fairytales, take a chance on If the Boot Fits, because it was brilliantly done.

Is it even possible to say that I liked this book even more than the first?
Yet, it's true. This book had me hooked right from the beginning. I had a sneaking suspicion that I would like this because I read the first book in the series last year, but I did not expect to like this one so much.
First off, Abigail was so relatable. She struggled to find her worth in matters other than baking. She worried about how she looked and how she could support herself.
Zach was back! I have to admit that his story was the one I was really looking forward too. He is so different from his siblings and carries a lot of baggage. Yet, through it all, he is able to learn and work through his issues with the help of God.
To sum it all up, I really enjoyed this novel and fans of historical will devour this story with all of its character development.

Rating: 5 Stars
Content: 2 Stars (kissing)

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
