Book Description

This year’s Cinderella pantomime is the hottest production in town. What’s more, Lucy is starring alongside Ryan Aspall: famous TV actor, sex symbol and potential love of her entire life. One teeny problem – Lucy is tripping the light fantastic as … the back end of the comedy cow. Surely nothing kills a flirty moment quite like wearing a massive set of udders?

At least she has the support of glamorous (if potentially flammable) Charmaine; a reality star diva of a Cinderella, who Lucy is completely fascinated by. But behind the fame and beauty, Charmaine is not all she seems.

With more drama off the stage than on it, and everyone wanting to be star of the show, will Lucy find the confidence to make it out of the cow suit and into the spotlight this Christmas?

A Cinderella Christmas is a festive 30,000 word novella.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great festive read 19 Nov. 2013
By Ellie77
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an easy read humourous story.
It is very much like the Cinderella fairy tale and all that is missing are the two ugly sisters!!
The plot touches upon the public`s adulation of celebrity culture and manages to show us the reality that lies behind the publicity machine. All the characters are believable. I found the dialogue and narrative funny and witty. I actually laughed out loud in parts.There are some good observations of human behaviour. The little dog is endearing and the festive setting makes for it to be an excellent Christmas read.
I loved this book, it gave me the feel good factor and I look forward to reading more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun festive read 2 Dec. 2013
By Sharon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Lucy would like to be so much more than the back end of a pantomine cow but her lack of confidence in believing that's she good enough to be a leading lady is stopping her from achieving her dream.

Finding herself away from family and friends this Christmas, she's happy when the stars of the show Charmaine, who's playing Cinderella, and her crush Ryan, who's playing the leading man, befriend her. But are their intentions as innocent as they seem?...

Lucy was such a delightful character that you couldn't help but like her, she had such endearing qualities in wanting to please everyone even if they were taking advantage of her! And as for her other half of the cow Ben, he sounded so adorable. Where can I find my own version of Ben?!

This was such a fab, fun festive read that I whizzed through it in no time at all. In fact, my only criticism of it was that I would have loved a little more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooray for Holly and Lucy 29 Nov. 2013
By Angie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very enjoyable, feel good, read. It reminded me of my own performance as Baron Hardup (Cinder's Dad ) , no one else would do it. I gave a broad Yorkshire, well padded interpretation. Imagine my horror when I heard that at least one member of the audience was unsure of my gender! Aaaaah! It must've been the rolled up socks in my knickers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 17 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a really enjoyable read. It was easy to get into and I didn't put it down until I'd finished it, which is definitely the sign of a good story. It has everything you want from a good chick lit novel but it also has an additional wit and warmth about it that made it especially stand out for me. Definitely a book I'll be telling all my girl friends to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great novella - hilarious from start to finish! 5 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Lucy is an aspiring actress and she couldn't be more thrilled at the prospect of working with two celebrities she adores in this year's Christmas pantomime. And when one of them, reality star Charmaine, manages to bump Lucy's role up from the chorus line Lucy thinks this is going to be the most exciting production for her yet.

That is, until she realises that her grand new role is playing the rear end of a comical cow... Even worse, she has become the official babysitter for Charmaine's spoiled little Chihuahua, which takes up most of her spare time outside of rehearsals, and to her horror she finds out that she's unable to utter a word in front of the gorgeous Prince Charming of the production, television star Ryan Aspell.

I should start this review by saying that I'm not a huge fan of short stories or novellas as I find there's too little time for proper characterisation and as a result of this I never really care for the characters within. So unless it's written by an author I love and preferably slotting into a story I already know (so I am familiar with the characters and their backgrounds) I tend to avoid short stories and novellas, until now.

"A prince, a diva, a tiny cold dog, and a frustrated cow..." is one of the most funny and eye-catching tag lines I've ever seen and it is what made this novella stand out to me in the first place, so kudos to the author, or publicist, who came up with it. And when I read that the story is set around Christmas time during the rehearsals for a panto I knew this would be right up my ally, as I love anything to do with festive season and am a big fan of all things theatre.

The story itself definitely didn't disappoint as it was a hilarious journey from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulously festive read! 29 Nov. 2013
By Natalie
Format:Kindle Edition
If you're looking for a light hearted Christmas novella that will make you giggle then you need to get your hands on a copy of A Cinderella Christmas.

It's a brilliant story based around the cast of a Christmas pantomime. The heroine of the story is the very loveable back-end-of-a-cow Lucy. She's down to earth of full of the everyday insecurities that plague us all. The other leading lady in the book is a diva and a nasty piece of work called Charmaine; not the type of person I would fancy for a friend, but enjoyable to read about non-the-less.

I loved Holly Kingston's writing style, it's so light-hearted and really easy to get into. I was drawn into the story from the first few pages and really enjoyed reading the whole novella.

This novella has everything you could wish for in a festive read... it's full of Christmas sparkle, with big doses of humour, friendship and romance. And there's even an adorable little dog who dresses like an elf, for those of who like like a little canine influence in a story!

Oh and did I mention it's set in Manchester - which being a Mancunian I love :)

I look forward to reading more from Holly in the future.
