In old fairy tales the boy was handsome and rich and brave; the girl was young and thin and docile. The boy performed an extraordinary feat and proved he was worthy of her love. They walked into the sunset and lived happily ever. That's all very nice, but how many women in the 21st century, balancing career and relationships, still believe getting a pretty boy at the end o ...more

I received this book through the GoodReads First Reads giveaway program.

A single mom with a dead end but with a good heart finds a Prada bag filled with money. This discovery leads her to her dreams.

This book started off with so much promise. It starts off with the main character I (I don't think we ever learn her name) having a hum drum day and then she discovers a huge bag of money! Unlike a typical chick lit book, she spends about $2000 on frivolous things and then feels bad about it. She the

Disclosure: I received a free copy courtesy of the author, via GoodReads First Reads. Also, I hate spoilers of any type and usually try to avoid them, so this review maybe vague. That's how I role. Deal with it.

So, I read this book over the course of a period of time where I was working an irrational amount of hours in a small time. I work in theater so my hours can be really weird like that depending on the week, and this was a perfect book for that.

Fairy tales, as I think of it, are supposed t

A forty-ish year old single mother of a son (Adam), lives in Hollywood barely making ends meet.

So, the whole story revolves around her finding this large sum of money and how it can improve her life, as well as her sons.

A few things that were a bit odd:

The plot is good and the author kept my attention. The conversations between characters, however, needed some shoring up. It got pretty dicey with who was actually talking some of the time.

The main character is supposedly dramatic, according to her and the other characters, but is static through and through. She is the same person at the end of the book as she was at the beginning. Her actions and thoughts of herself never did match up.

The one character I liked, and wanted to play a bigger role

Despite numerous difficulties with the editing (most notable being dropped words) the development of the main character as she undergoes a life-changing moment is engaging. I hope the author's next work receives better editing.
