Absolutely Magical.βœ¨πŸ’•πŸ‘‘πŸπŸŒŸ

This is Fairy Tale retelling at its finest!!πŸ‘πŸŒŸ

Princess Clara is uncomfortable being hemmed in by her positions expectations. She wishes she could run free & not be honour bound to choose a Prince to marry, but her Father is insistant! As her Mother died in childbirth he has always been overprotective but after his 2nd wife attacked her he's become much worse!😳

On the night of her Ball to introduce her Suitors, Clara becomes cursed. The curse was contained in her old toy Nutcracker. She hadn't seen it for 10 years and as it was inherited from her Mother she just couldn't help but pick it up!!😍😟 She now has only 12 days to break the curse or she'll turn into wood & her soul will be trapped forever inside the Nutcracker!😱😒

Clara decides she can't leave it up to the four Prince Suitors & the Royal Guards to break the curse, it feels like something she must attempt to do herself. She's caught sneaking out by her bestfriend, Philip, he insists on accompanying her, plus he's a Royal Guard so can help protect her too!!πŸ‘

What follows is two friends relying on one anothers trust & deep friendship to get them through some dangerous & deadly trials.🐾 Magical Kingdoms that seem to want to thwart them at every turn, plus some seriously messed up priorities come to light from some people!!πŸ˜–πŸ‘Ž

The REALLY sad part is that this was all started because of 2 scared little girls, who cared deeply for each other, and a Mouse!!🐁😒✨

I loved this book, It's pure escapism at its finest. Although it isn't set around Christmas the Nutcracker theme lends itself perfectly to this season 🌲 The romance aspects are spot on.πŸ’˜πŸ‘‘βœ¨ The world building, as always with this Author, is fabπŸŽ‰ A highly recommended 5 star read 🌟
