Editorial Reviews

Review

Seattle Cinderella is a sweet, clean, faith-affirming and modern depiction of the Cinderella story, complete with an evil stepmother, a "Farrah" godmother, and two (not ugly) stepsisters. With touches of humor and a quadruple-threat dose of charming princes, this four-for-one novella collection is a convenient tool to pass the time while you're waiting on kids, lines, or appointments – and also serves as an entertaining way to pass a quiet evening at home.
(Serena Chase USA Today's Happy Ever After 2012-03-18)

This book surprised me by being four different stories in one book. I enjoyed the continuation of each story into the next. The first book is the modern day Cinderella story, with the next two books being the tales of step-sister turned friend and all around good person. the final tale is the "fairy godmother" finding her happily ever after. Each book had a good arc of characters, good romance and endings that made me smile. Being broken into four tales made this book easy to read and fun. I'd consider this a great read for all lovers of fairy tales, modern romance and enjoyment!

The four romance stories form a nice collection. The characters are interwoven throughout as the overall story progresses. These are simple romances. There are no complex plots nor deep thinking characters. These are four light stories that will ease your mind. They are well done. Each one can be easily read in an evening, a pleasant couple of hours.
(Joan Nienhuis Book Woman Joan 2012-03-16)

Better than Expected! Each story was a great stand alone. They were quick and easy to read.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5/5-A long review from Bookworm1858 March 11, 2012
Format:Paperback
After seeing the title of this, how could I resist? Cinderella is my favorite fairy-tale and I actively seek out retellings plus I used to live in the Seattle area. What I didn't realize is that this was a collection of four intertwined stories, beginning with Cindy, the retelling of Cinderella, and giving love stories to her two stepsisters and to her godmother. I'm going to talk about each briefly.

Cindy and the Prince: This is the story inspiring the title. Cindy runs her father's mechanic shop but only possesses a half interest which she must share with her cruel stepmother and lazy stepsisters. Luke works across the street and has been trying to win a date with Cindy for about six months.

Love by the Books: This was probably my favorite story, actually. It features Annie and Brent, stepsister to Cindy and business partner to Luke respectively. Brent greatly distrusts Annie after her cruel behavior to Cindy but Annie has undergone a transformation and wants to earn trust as she builds her career as an accountant. When she discovers discrepancies in Brent and Luke's books, most people assume she doesn't know what's talking about but Brent trusts her and helps her unravel what has been going down.

Till Death Do Us Part: Zella is the other stepsister who is trying to avoid her mother's matchmaking attempts by joining a book club. Only it's actually a club for writers of books. Zella reads a lot, especially the work of her favorite author T.J. Zareth. Unbeknownst to her, that is the pen name of her group mate Trevor who wants to court Zella without her knowing his secret identity.

Never Too Late: This last story features Cindy's godmother Farrah who has reached her fiftieth year without marrying after the untimely death of her fiance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Read April 18, 2013
Format:Paperback
Seattle Cinderella

Gail Sattler

Book Description: A modern Cinderella and her cohorts are enchanted by love in Seattle. Cindy is forced into running her late father's muffler shop and employing horrid step-sisters, Annie and Zella. Can she garner the emotional energy needed to protect her heart against Luke's princely charms? Annie Wilson's past misdeeds have tarnished her reputation. Can she prove to herself and Brent that she's a changed woman? Zella is busy writing her own life story. Will it involve murder or romance? Farrah, Cindy's godmother, has caught a younger man's eye. How long can she deter his advances? Will God make these couples' dreams come true?

Review: Each story was a great stand alone. My biggest problem is that when I think of Cinderella, I am prone to not like the stepsisters. That took some time to deal with the other stories after Cindy. I also struggled at the start to get into the series. But once I did they took off and were enjoyable. I liked the fact that they did not try to gloss over the rocky relationship the girls had. They were quick and easy to read.
I would like to thank Net Galley and Barbour Publishing, Inc. for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

I enjoyed reading about the different places that were described in the book because I used to live in Seattle and it was almost like visiting there. Especially enjoyed reading about the Space Needle. Would read this author's books again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Inspiration for all ages! August 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Hott Synopsis
Cindy has it all.
Deceased parents.
A Wicked Step-Mother.
Evil Step-Sisters.
Half Ownership in a business that she slaves over.
A Prince Charming that isn't.
All she needs now is a fairy godmother... of course, she does have an awesome godmother already.

Hott Review
I'm not sure which of these novellas was the best. It was wonderful to flip from one person to the next and just fall in love with each of them.
The stories may have the underlying Cinderella theme but they're not trite or simplistic. They each have their own storyline that all tie together but can each be enjoyed separately. This is a must have for teen romance readers... but I'll be keeping it on my shelf, as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be swept off your feet with fairy tale romance! April 30, 2012
By Amyrjoy
Format:Kindle Edition
Cindy, Annie, Zella, and Farrah- these four names are not common in our infamous fairy tales but they are in Gale Sattler's compilation, Seattle Cinderella. Sattler takes the famous Cinderella story and fashions it in modern day, with struggles familiar to us, and with variations that take us by surprise. I loved each story- even the "evil" step-mother Farrah's. I saw themes of love, forgiveness, and redemption. Taking a classic tale and forming it into a faith-filled story with parallels in the background would be difficult but this novel succeeds in creating a worthy, new fairy tale for four unique women. Definitely recommend for fictional romance readers!
