In the beginning (up until Ella goes to the school to talk to Chris about Billy), I disliked the Spencer siblings. They were spoiled, selfish, and childish. Ella, at least, seemed to grow as a person and learn to be more considerate as she began interacting with Chris, but Billy pretty much disappeared once the relationship between his sister and teacher started. Chris was more likable from the jump; he was down-to-earth, kind, and open-minded. Even after having his heart broken by another wealthy woman, he never treated Ella with anything less than courtesy. He definitely seemed to be the most developed character, but neither he nor Ella were terribly well fleshed-out in the emotional reaction department. Their feelings, thoughts, and reactions seemed to change because the plot demanded it rather than as a natural progression based on events.
Since I don’t have a print copy to reference, I can’t be sure, but I think there were some typos in this novel. The narrator hesitated in several spots where words (usually articles) seemed to be missing. However, Ms. Slade was a great choice to narrate this book. The different voices for the different characters were very well done, especially Darby’s. She really brought the story to life.
Bottom line: “Keep on Believing” was a light, quick (for an audiobook, anyway) read that entertained me while walking the dog, cleaning, etc. It didn’t require 100% of my focus to keep up with what was happening, and sometimes that’s just the kind of book I need. If you like a light fantasy of the fairytale variety and don’t want to get invested in a series, this would be a good choice.
Keep on Believing is a retelling of the fairy tale Cinderella. Ella and her brother run away and create a life for themselves away from their evil stepmother. The burden of the secrets starts to become too much and has the potential to come out sooner rather than later. Christopher, Billy’s teacher (Ella’s brother), has his own secrets that he keeps hidden away. When the two come together the sparks fly.
Keep on Believing was an enchanting and charming well-written story. It was a unique and different twist to an old fairytale. There was just the right amount of action and romance to keep my interest piqued. This author really knows how to spin the fairytale to keep you entertained and intrigued from the beginning to the end. The characters were well developed and engaging.
Paula Slade did a great job with the narration. She had a clear and crisp voice that was easy to follow. The narrator did a good job with the distinct differences for each of the characters. Ms. Slade did well with bringing the story to life.
This is the first book that I have read by Marie Higgins and will certainly not be my last. I was not disappointed at all. I recommend Keep on Believing to anyone that enjoys a quick light read that will keep you entertained and have you believing in happily ever after.
