The war may be over, but Kate Allen’s life is still in upheaval. Not only has she discovered that Cinderella was real, but now she's been made Keeper of the Wardrobe, her sole responsibility to protect Cinderella’s magical dresses from the greed of the evil stepsisters’ modern descendants.
But Cinderella’s dresses are just the beginning. It turns out that the priceless glass slippers might actually exist, too, and they could hold the power to reunite lost loved ones like her father—missing in action since World War II ended. As Kate and her boyfriend, Johnny, embark on an adventure from New York to Italy and Poland in search of the mysterious slippers, they will be tested in ways they never imagined.
Because when you harness Cinderella's magic, danger and evil are sure to follow...
The missing pieces I was struggling with in Cinderella's Dress are addressed in this book. I thought this book was good. I love hearing about fairy tales in a new way and this series is an amazing adaptation of the Cinderella story. I love that a little bit of magic can bond people together in the way that it does.
Anyways, in this book Kate journey's to Italy and Poland in search for the glass slippers and her father. She is led into the trap of the stepsisters. But all ends well for the group of young and the old. Nessa and Kate are given a choice to continue the line. Kate finds out about her lineage along with finding the shoes and her father. Johnny and Kate's romance buds further. Elsie's illness takes it's toll while Kate is gone though.
It is both a happy and sad ending for this book. While all the characters are reunited in America or will be soon you are left with what I assume is a final meeting of Kate and Elsie. The ending left me questioning if Elsie is about to take her last breathe or whether Kate's father will fully recover.
Again I love the characters. The plot is well rounded and it had an even flow to it. There was a little romance, a lot of mystery and even some action. Definitely for a girl who wants a little bit of everything in her books. I look forward to reading more books by this author and hope that there are more to this series because I would love to see where the characters go from here!
