But this is Emma's story, obviously. Emma may not be as deep as Dodsworth, but she's still a likeable character with quite a bit of personality. Content to make the best of a bad situation, her optimistic outlook is a refreshing contrast to Dodsworth's own personal darkness. Of course, little does she know how directly that darkness will influence her...and how much she influences it. While her pluck got a little *too* altruistic at times, it wasn't enough to make her unbelievable. She's a grounded girl with hopes and dreams, and she'll be darned if she doesn't indulge in a selfish desire or two along the way. She is, after all, only human.
Vaughan...What can I say about him? I like him...ish. It's not that he's a bad character. He's pretty well-rounded, too. Kinda. But, as this is a "Cinderella story", he falls in love at first sight and, frankly...I've never been much a fan of the idea. It's just a personal preference. He's a shallow, callous playboy who takes to the straight and narrow, not for noble motives, but because his position basically forces him to. And while he does show some scruples before the book is over...I feel like his transformation needed a bit...more. More time. More detail. More...something. Can't quite place my finger on it. It just kind of happened so fast, and I'm not entirely convinced that a beautiful girl is enough to make a guy do a 180. But then, I suppose I've known too many jerky guys to think such a major change could happen, quite literally, overnight.
That being said, it's still a cute book. Well written. Well planned out. And a great start to a trilogy. Which is saying a lot because the second book is even better. :)
True to all of Kelly's books there is a mystery to be solved on this. Clues along the way that are so subtle one may not pick up on them until after the fact.
I am looking forward to the second book in this series. And will be reading this one again. I think Kelly did an excellent job retelling this fairy tale and making it all her own.
She does an excellent job at twisting a classic Fairy Tale.
Emma Hartwell is a servant girl working for Fredrick Dodsworth to pay off her father's debts. She is best friends with Tracey, Mr Dodsworth's daughter who's first season is coming up. On the day of the first ball Tracey falls mysteriously ill with a cough and is too sick to attend. To avoid Tracey becoming a pariah in society, Emma is sent to the ball with a note to excuse Tracey's absence. Elizabeth another servant gives Emma
a stunning green dress to wear so that she does not stick out at the ball. Nervous and feeling very out of place Emma just to quickly go in and deliver the note and get out. However this not to be for she catches the eye of Lord Vaughan Wexley, there is something about this young lady that has Vaughan very interested and it takes a lot of persuading on his part to get her to dance a since Waltz with him. Emma loves being in his arms but knows nothing can come of it for she is a servant and he is a lord. Unknown to either party larger forces are at work will this bring a happy end or a shattered one.
From being to end Kelly Martin knows how to keep you interested. I really enjoyed this book and eagerly look forward to the next book in this series
