Blog Tour: Fairytale Beginnings by Holly Martin-Review

It's my stop on the blog tour for Holly Martin's Fairytale Beginnings today! Can we all take a moment to marvel over the cover please? And once you've read my review: don't forget to check out the next stop on the blog tour and all the previous stops of course, there are some amazing blogs on this list! 

Love is an open door…except when it keeps slamming in your face.

Hopeless romantic Milly Rose has had her fair share of heartbreak. Obsessed with all things Disney, she refuses to give up on finding her Prince Charming – he’s out there somewhere, isn’t he?

When Milly is given a job to investigate the origins of an historical building in the village of Clovers Rest, she’s not sure what to expect. What she discovers takes her breath away - a beautiful real life Cinderella castle, complete with turrets, a magnificent drawbridge AND a very handsome owner…Cameron Heartstone.

As Milly and Cameron begin to unearth the secrets of Clover Castle, they can’t ignore the intense chemistry building between them. But they’ve both been hurt badly before. Can they take a big leap of faith and find their own happily-ever-after?

A deliciously enchanting read that will delight fans of Rachael Lucas, Lucy Diamond and Miranda Dickinson or anyone who has ever blubbed at a Disney movie. Who says real life can’t be a fairytale?

Review: aww what a lovely love story! This is just about as sickly sweet as they come so be awarded, you may have to hang up any romantic cynicism you have at the door. To begin with I did think that the story was a little improbable, but as I went on, I was swept up in the Disney-like story line and fell in love with Milly and Cameron. 

This is a classic Disney style story, boy and girl fall in love, then it looks like all might be in vain because someone tries to sabotage it all, there are even points where they hate it other, there are also points where it looks like their love might be, but I'm sure, whatever happy ending you are looking for form this pair, you will find it in some way. 

I liked Milly as a character, although she did seem a bit quick to jump to conclusions without actually thinking about the possibilities first. She is a very undisney-like heroine though becaus she is more than capable of looking after herself and doing the saving of the prince, or prince equivalent in this case. Cameron is also very quick to jump to conclusions and is rather naive when it comes to business, but we can't hold this against him because he is big and strong and wants to have lots of hot sex all the time! There are a host of other comedy characters and of course a few Disney villains along the way too, who are very easy to love to hate! 

There is quite a a lot of magic and legend in this book but Lso some interesting historical details, Holly Martin has done a good job of balancing fact and Fairytale. Overall it was a fairly easy, quick read which I enjoyed once I had turned off my cynical real life head and put on my Disney princes romance crown!
