Synopsis: Manhattan is the setting for this urban fairytale, and let’s face it, we’ve seen plenty of these novels on the bookshelves recently, as much as there are TV series and movies. Fairy tales seem to be the bread and butter of fiction these days. Macie Graham, a magazine editor is one for always getting her story, yet she is annoyed at Ross Mannon for slating her article on his radio show. His doing this to her costs her position at the magazine and her hating him forever.
Review: Throughout the story she sets out to get her own back on him, but things don’t go the way she wants them to. Ross doesn’t know what he’s done wrong, as many radio personalities are at their best when they are as scathing as he is, but he will live to regret ever having a run in with Macie. Ross only wants a woman who is a good home maker, and the perfect wife to him, but Macie doesn’t sound like she fits the bill in this story. She has her own mind and doesn’t like chauvinist men in general.
Macie thinks Operation Cinderella will be a breeze as it’s her way of getting her own back on a man who has done her wrong, but she gets more than she bargained for with Ross, and having to answer difficult questions isn’t something she expected with him or his friends.
Best bits: Macie starting out Operation Cinderella and pretending to be Martha Jane Gray to get back at him. Ross’s Rants, yeah the things that get him into bother with certain women, Macie’s letter to Ross as Martha for becoming his housekeeper,
Last comments on the novel: The cover image is a little less original than it could have been. It is romantic, but at the same time run of the mill.
