Are you a fan of the fairytale Cinderella ? Ever since, I was little my all-time fairtyale story has been Cinderella. I love it and own nearly every single movie that has a Cinderella theme , my favourite being the Drew Barrymore movie "Ever After: A Cinderella Story". When I saw this book , I knew I had to read it as I also love the Christian fiction series "Romancing America".
Like most books in the Romancing America series, Seattle Cinderella contains four short stories. The first is "Cindy an

Who doesn’t love a re-imagined fairy tale? Just the idea immediately enthralls me. It’s always fun to see how many elements of the old favorite an author can parallel without making the whole concept seem hokey. At other times, the connection is so vague you’d never know it was there if someone didn’t tell you.

When I heard that one of the Romancing America collections was a set of novellas with a contemporary Cinderella theme, it got my attention. Here’s what they said: “Follow the road to the E
I really enjoyed reading each of the four stories, the third one was my favorite! Cinderella is my favorite fairy-tale and that is what drew me to this book. It was neat to see how the author intertwined the characters with Cindy being Cinderella, Annie being the first step-sister, Zella being the second step-sister, and Farrah being the godmother. I do not think this book should fall in the category of being Christian Fiction, because there was no talk about God. The second story is the only on ...more
After seeing the title of this, how could I resist? Cinderella is my favorite fairy-tale and I actively seek out retellings plus I used to live in the Seattle area. What I didn't realize is that this was a collection of four intertwined stories, beginning with Cindy, the retelling of Cinderella, and giving love stories to her two stepsisters and to her godmother. I'm going to talk about each briefly.

Book Description: A modern Cinderella and her cohorts are enchanted by love in Seattle. Cindy is forced into running her late father’s muffler shop and employing horrid step-sisters, Annie and Zella. Can she garner the emotional energy needed to protect her heart against Luke’s princely charms? Annie Wilson’s past misdeeds have tarnished her reputation. Can she prove to herself and Brent that she’s a changed woman? Zella is busy writing her own life story. Will it i
Another fun book in the romancing America series. This book follows Cindy and her step sisters Annie and Zella. The final story is about Farrah who is Cindy’s godmother. Cindy deals with a stepmom who does not like her and trying to keep her fathers muffler shop going. Annie deals with someone trying to make her look bad and Zella who is trying to avoid her mother setting her up so she joins a book club. Farrah has just turned 50 and catches the eye of a younger man. Will these ladies find true ...more
Seattle Cinderella is written by Gail Sattler and published by Barbour Books.

This book has four separate love stories and they all take place in Seattle, Washington. The characters are all family or acquaintances so the stories flow well together. Although the stories are short the romances are believable and enjoyable.

In the first story, Cindy is running the family muffler shop and does not see the need for a man in her life. But can she resist Luke much longer? In the next story Annie must p

What a fun concept! This is an entertaining four-story tale that weaves three "stepsisters" and a "fairy godmother" together in a delightful little piece of literary fun.

Cindy and the Prince - This story begins with "Cindy" as the garage mechanic who is trying to keep her father's old business running. She is actively pursued by the owner of the local rental car agency "Prince Rentals," but unwillingly falls head-over-heels in a whirlwind romance. Delightful and punny - I enjoyed all the paralle
The only reason I read this book was because it was given to me a while back, and I currently don't have anything else to read. Plus, spring break. Mucho tiempo.

So, there's four short stories in this book. It's based on the classic Cinderella fairy tale. The stories revolve around four main characters - Cindy (Cinderella), Annie (Anastasia), Zella (Drizella), and Farrah (the fairy god mother).

I didn't enjoy the book, but I didn't hate it. It was just neutral. I felt that the stories were super

I absolutely LOVED this book. If you're that person that's still wondering if you should read it... Then go for it! It's a great collection of stories and of course I loved how the entire book follows the story line of the classic Cinderella. I read this so fast because I JUST COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN! ;-) Thank you Gail Sattler for an amazing book!
Beth Butler
Very predictable. Very happy. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and ending up smiling at the end of each novella.
Kind of cute, inspirational romance that does not "cram" religion down your throat.
Denae Zvarick
This is a fun romance of four stories following the cinderella theme. The first stories is about cinderella, the second two about her stepsisters, and the third being about her godmother. Set in modern times, "Cinderella" owns an auto shop while the "prince" owns a used car rental across the street. The stories are good, short, and funny. I really enjoyed this book.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked having four short stories that were related, but separate. I don't like being stressed when I read a book and this book was fun and relaxing, exactly what I was looking for.
Sweet, very fast reads. Good for a little shot of romance on hyperdrive. Like the Seattle location since that's my backyard. Again, good clean love w a touch of God is always enjoyable.
Rebecca Mabis
Cute stories but completely unrealistic. I can't believe every story ended in exactly the same way. Disappointing.
Wonderful short stories all superbly written. All excellent characters you will not soon forget.
