Review: "If the Shoe Fits" by Sandra D. Bricker

Release Date - June 1st, 2013
By: Sandra D. Bricker
River North / Paperback

Julianne used to believe in fairy tales; she's been watching for Prince Charming to come charging in on his white steed ever since the day her mother read her Cinderella for the first time. But she's never come close to finding the perfect man-instead she's always tripping over her childhood best friend, Will. And who finds their Prince Charming on a 10-speed bicycle on the other side of the cul de sac?

My thoughts:

When I was a little girl, I always loved the story about Cinderella..and in this story Julianne thinks she has found her Prince Charming when she sees him rescuing a dog in the middle of the road.  But, when she tracks him down and gets to know him,..she faces some challenges and begins to wonder if he really could be her Prince.
As Julianne gets used to her new Law Offices with her best friend Will, and as they start dating other people,.... will she realize that Will has more than just "friendship" feelings towards her?
With this books well developed characters and funny situations, - I really enjoyed this story of a modern day Fairy Tale!

One of my favorite quotes from the book was: 
 "All right then,” she said confidently, and she crossed her arms as she glared at him. “You’re thinking how lucky you are to have a best friend like me.”

I love this authors books! 
See my review for "Love finds you in Snowball, Arkansas here
and my review for "The Big 5-Oh!  here

I received a advanced copy of this book for my honest review.

  1. It sounds like it's full of nice, modern twists. And of course a prince can be possibly found on a 10-speed, riding white horses is totally outdated. ;) Thanks for the great FYI review!

  2. I LOVE Sandie's books!! She's a personal friend and an awesome writer. Her series that started with "Always the Baker, Never the Bride" was SUCH fun and so well written, that I'm sure I'll love this one as well. I can't recommend her enough.

  3. I've read more this year than I've read in the last 15 or 20...ok, that's not counting Berenstein Bears etc etc etc. Thanks for this review so I can fill my shelves with good books!

  4. Getting a kick out of Miralee's comments on your blog-now I want to read Always the Baker, Never the Bride even more than the one you reviewed (cuz you know baking is my thang). lol! I love a modern twist to a classic love story, this sounds great!

  5. Thanks for stopping by everyone! =)

    I really enjoyed this book!

  6. Sounds like a good book! It has been so long since I have been able to just sit and read a juicy novel. Lately it seems all I have time for is reading or writing blog posts.
