I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It has a gentle sense of humour that is delightful and I think I may be a little in love with Officer Max and his kittens.

Although occasionally a bit wordy, this was an interesting story about love and revenge.

The Cinderella Arrangement by Vanessa Waltz

While the sex scenes were quite titillating, the rest of the book was not. It was written in first person and a very naive young writing style. It would also appear that the author does not have a lot of experience of the world. What particularly ann ...more
The Cinderella Arrangement by Vanessa Waltz
"So bad. So so bad!

The “author” doesn’t even know the difference between “then” and “than”. Lots of sentences that made no sense whatsoever.

Why do people with a poor grasp of language want to write? I don’t get it.

The characters were not only un..." Read more of this review »
Nicole and 3 other people liked Kimme's review of The Cinderella Arrangement:
The Cinderella Arrangement by Vanessa Waltz
"Part one bored me and part two irritated me. What a bunch of unlikeable characters. I can't believe I wasted my time reading this. Part one was bad when it was released on its own but to bundle it with part two was just cruel."
The Cinderella Arrangement by Vanessa Waltz
"OH MY GOD! What did I just listen to?!?

Okay, yes, this was an audio book and yes I did probably get this book due to the cover and the title. AND NO, I HAD NO IDEA WHAT THIS BOOK WAS ACTUALLY ABOUT.

First, Jessica ... oh JESSICA, AN ESCORT?!?! REAL..." Read more of this review »

J.K. Rowling
“Fat’ is usually the first insult a girl throws at another girl when she wants to hurt her.

I mean, is ‘fat’ really the worst thing a human being can be? Is ‘fat’ worse than ‘vindictive’, ‘jealous’, ‘shallow’, ‘vain’, ‘boring’ or ‘cruel’? Not to me; but then, you might retort, what do I know about the pressure to be skinny? I’m not in the business of being judged on my looks, what with being a writer and earning my living by using my brain…

I went to the British Book Awards that evening. After the award ceremony I bumped into a woman I hadn’t seen for nearly three years. The first thing she said to me? ‘You’ve lost a lot of weight since the last time I saw you!’

‘Well,’ I said, slightly nonplussed, ‘the last time you saw me I’d just had a baby.’

What I felt like saying was, ‘I’ve produced my third child and my sixth novel since I last saw you. Aren’t either of those things more important, more interesting, than my size?’ But no – my waist looked smaller! Forget the kid and the book: finally, something to celebrate!

I’ve got two daughters who will have to make their way in this skinny-obsessed world, and it worries me, because I don’t want them to be empty-headed, self-obsessed, emaciated clones; I’d rather they were independent, interesting, idealistic, kind, opinionated, original, funny – a thousand things, before ‘thin’. And frankly, I’d rather they didn’t give a gust of stinking chihuahua flatulence whether the woman standing next to them has fleshier knees than they do. Let my girls be Hermiones, rather than Pansy Parkinsons.”
J.K. Rowling

“Of all sound of all bells... most solemn and touching is the peal which rings out the Old Year.”
