About the Author
Kristen Ashley is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. She grew up in Indiana, but has lived in Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she’s been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least), but loopy is good when you want to write. Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched). Needless to say, living in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up. And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

It makes the HEA feel hollow.
I would give this a 2, but KA is always entertaining so the score is higher. But I wish I hadn't read it. It lingers in a bad way
This book is about how Fiona, as a ghost, tries to meddle to get Pren and Bella back together for the sake of her family and her love for them. Since she can't be there for her family, she feels that Bella is the next best thing. This book is about healing deep personal wounds and relationships. This book is about love. And lastly, this book is about fairytales, as in A Scottish Fairytale Come Alive.
Fairytale Come Alive is told in 3rd person and the POV alternates between Prentice, Bella, and Fiona.
There is a lot of push and pull in this book with most of the push being from Bella as she constantly tries to push away Pren and run away because she doesn't think she is good enough and she thinks that she will just make life worse for Pren and the kids.
Fairytale Come Alive is a bit long. Probably because it seems like the story peaks and then resolves multiple times over with a new issue or twist arising each time it seems like everything is going to be good.
For the most part, I liked the main characters and the secondary characters. I did struggle a bit with Bella because she was a 40 year old woman still under her father's thumb and intimidation. I felt like she should have been able to deal with that sooner in life, especially since she was seeing a therapist. The kids were super cute and I loved how Bella was with the children. I also really liked Annie and Mikey, Bella's two best friends since college.
The big twist at the end was a bit contrived for me but it worked out okay, I suppose.
Overall, this was a very entertaining book and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I am giving this book 3.5-4 stars. This whole series has been really good so far. I am looking forward to starting the 5th book in the series.
Audible: I added the whispersync narration to this kindle book. The narrator did a really good job with the accents. It was fun to listen to.
While the love story was a little hard to take, heartbreakingly sad and emotional, there were times that you really could believe that it was a Fairytale Come to life. I was sad that Fiona had to watch her husband move on and find love again, but admired her strength in seeing to her families happiness. It definitely was a perfect example of - there's a reason why things happen.
There were some amazing characters in this story. I loved Prentice’s kids Jason and Sally. Elle’s best friends were lovable and most of Prentice’s town eventually came good in the end. I think my only negative was the added on suspense that happened towards the end. It seemed a little unnecessary.
I cried A LOT in this one but I definitely smiled, smirked and squirmed too, so it’s all good.

Very typical KA book, though missing the wordiness of her later books (which is a good thing).Read more
