“See a lost shoe, pick it up. Prince Charming, you will find.”Skylar O’Conner is many things: a cat lover, a flirt, a currently unemployed dreamer. One thing she’s not is a believer in magic or mysticism of any kind. When her mother gifts her a psychic reading on her 26th birthday, Skylar’s jaded outlook has her bored before she even steps inside. What she was not prepared for, was her own curiosity to act on the psychic’s advice when she finds an abandoned purple rainboot at the mall.

Since his wife died two years ago, Carter Montgomery’s entire world has centered around his daughter, Everly. He raises her to know her mother is a constant loving presence watching over them, one he’s not sure he’ll ever be able to move on from. But when a blonde with curly hair and emerald eyes waltzes into his life, she awakens yearnings within him he thought no longer existed.

Neither Skylar or Carter were prepared for what fate had in store for them, yet their attraction was undeniable. But when a simple gift causes a horrible misunderstanding, Carter pulls back out of fear the scars on his heart still cut too deep. Will pain from the past deny them the chance at a beautiful future?

“A Cinderella Story is E.K. Woodcock’s debut novel and she did an amazing job! This is a sweet retelling of the classic Cinderella that includes a hot single dad and an adorable three-year-old.” ~Rubi’s Bookshelf

“… a beautiful and unforgettable journey of the unexpected, love, moving on and family.” ~K & R’s Dark Angels Book Blog

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

A Cinderella Story is a great debut novel from E.K. Woodcock. A modern-day twist on the Cinderella fairy tale, Skylar never imagines that a vision from a psychic would lead her to a single dad, a single rainboot and an adorable little girl.

After the “Cinderella moment” in the mall where Skylar returns Everly’s rainboot, she keeps running into widower Carter over and over again. There are a lot of really cute moments between Skylar and Everly, and the romance between Skylar and Carter is quite sweet. There’s a twist in the story, of course, and a lovely HEA for Skylar, Carter and Everly. If you are looking for a feel-good, clean romance, definitely check out A Cinderella Story!
