What a cute story, light, quick reading and hard to put down! Fooling Around with Cinderella by Stacy Juba is a great escape story, with just enough angst and plenty of moments to bring smiles.
Jaine is running out of her employment benefits and patience with her sisters. Babysitter, wedding planner, talk her off the cliff therapist and all around doormat to her twins, she’s decided she needs a change. So on a whim, she sends a resume to her favorite childhood theme park, offering her services as a marketing manager.
Dylan has just taken over the general manager position at his family’s theme park, Storybook Valley, in the Catskills. Catering to all things family fun but really geared to the under 7’s, his family ‘doesn’t like change’ and his mother’s relationship with Gabrielle (Jaine’s high school nemesis) who has eyes on the GM job doesn’t help. When you add in Dylan’s grandmother Lois (the original Cinderella with a very specific set of rules) and the reputation that Dylan coveted as a young child eager to leave, his family is thinking she’s another conquest and unworthy of a chance.
From sisters who rival the evil steps to adoration (and uncomfortable moments) with four year olds, re-housing gnomes and a sabotage, the story moves swiftly to conclusion with a lovely glass-slipper moment to bring it all together. Fun, light and just the ticket for those cold and rainy days when some laughter and love is what you need.

What happens when the glass slippers pinch Cinderella’s toes?
When Jaine Andersen proposes a new marketing role to the local amusement park, general manager Dylan Callahan charms her into filling Cinderella’s glass slippers for the summer. Her reign transforms Jaine’s ordinary life into chaos that would bewilder a fairy godmother.
Secretly dating her bad boy boss, running wedding errands for her ungrateful sisters, and defending herself from the park’s resident villain means Jaine needs lots more than a comfy pair of shoes to restore order in her kingdom.
First in the Storybook Valley series, a blend of sweet romance, chick lit, and fairy tale fun.
