Product Description

When Tansy Poole inherits a run-down shoe shop tucked away in the village of Sticklepond, ‘Cinderella’s Slippers’ is born – providing the footwear to make any fairytale wedding come true…

Carrying everything a bride would want to walk down the aisle in, Tansy’s shop soon expands to carry shoe-themed wedding favours, bridesmaid gifts and even delicious chocolate shoes. It’s the dream destination for any shoe-lover!

If only everything in her personal life could be as heavenly – but with a fiancé trying to make her fit into a size 8 wedding dress, not to mention the recent discovery of disturbing family revelations, Tansy takes refuge in the shop’s success.

But one man isn’t thrilled by the stream of customers hot-footing it to Cinderella’s Slippers… Actor Ivo Hawksley, resident of the cottage next to the shop, is troubled by a dark secret in his past and has come to Sticklepond to nurse his own broken heart.

However, Ivo realises that he and Tansy have a link in their past and soon, they both find out how secrets shared can make a very strong bond indeed…

Forget the Jimmy Choos, Chocolate Shoes and Wedding Blues is the only accessory you need for spring 2012…

More About the Author

Trisha Ashley writes romantic comedies, and her latest novel, a reprint of Every Woman for Herself,was her sixth consecutive Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller. Her novels have twice been shortlisted for the Melissa Nathan award for Romantic Comedy and Every Woman for Herself was nominated by readers as one of the top three romantic novels of the last fifty years.
She is from St Helens in West Lancashire, and believes that her typically dark Lancashire sense of humour in adversity, crossed with a good dose of Celtic creativity from her Welsh grandmother, have made her what she is today...whatever that is. Five of her novels are set in rural West Lancashire and three in Wales. They frequently explore aspects of the three F's that are a constant in her own life: Food, Flowers and Friendship and include delicious recipes at the back.
Nowadays she lives in North Wales, together with the neurotic Border Collie foisted onto her by her son, and a very chancy Muse.
She is the founder member of NW Novelistas Ink, a group of twelve novelists, several of whom are bestselling, who meet regularly in North Wales; she is also a long term member of the Society of Authors and a member of Literature Wales.
Her new novel, a reprint of Every Woman for Herself, will be published on May 8th, 2014. The dysfunctional Rhymer family, the result of a failed attempt by their father to recreate the Brontes, gather together at the Upvale Parsonage for what might well turn out to be the last time....
Trisha has a website at where you can find out more about her, sign up for her newsletter, or see a complete list of her books. You will also find her on twitter as @trishaashley.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT, LOVED IT, LOVED IT! 12 May 2012
By Carol 'avid little bookworm' TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is only the second novel I've read by Trisha Ashley. My first was Twelve Days of Christmas (also excellent), unrelated to this novel, but I enjoyed her writing style so much I didn't hesitate to purchase this book.

Where do I start? I loved everything about this book and author from her wit and humour, not to mention her beautifully descriptive writing which had me completely hooked and chuckling the whole way through from start to finish. I love the girly humour, the wonderful shoe clock - ten past sparkly pink stiletto time, wonderful metaphors, the name of not only Cinderella's Slippers but other business names mentioned in the novel, complete gems. The writing is so believable, you can't help feeling that Trisha Ashley has marketed a business in the past (and if not, should do) and her writing on food is positively mouth watering!

Being new to the village of Sticklepond, the characters where also new to me but I soon got to know them all. I really liked Tansy, full of integrity and long suffering at the hands of her two 'ugly' step sisters, horrid and manipulative as well as the 'evil' mother-in-law to be, Mummy Dearest. Mummy Dearest has Tansy's wimpy fiance Justin tied to her apron strings and has no intention of letting go. I loved Aunt Nan's good old fashioned strength of character and no nonsense, just get on with it, attitude and the special relationship between her and Tansy.

Oh what a joy, I enjoyed it so much I almost read it straight through, stopping only to sleep and for absolute necessities! This was helped along by the short chapters - who doesn't love them, I just kept thinking I'll just read one more!! I absolutely recommend this brilliant witty novel and I'm now looking to read the other books featuring the Sticklepond residents.

4.0 out of 5 stars All rather similiar 13 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoy Trisha Ashleys writing but have to say there are a lot of similarities in the plotlines of each book. The main character having only one or no parents either by desertion or death, and of course the main character always falling in love and ending up in a good relationship at the end. Having said that I will still go on to buy her new books as I enjoy her writing and obvious love of food, which she conveys mouthwateringly well.

I've only just discovered Trisha Ashley's books this year and I can't get enough of them. I intend reading them all. I can identify with some of the quirkiness of the characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars A scrumptious read. 9 Mar 2013
By Jan Fox
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This continued with the author's previous themes, of chocolates and weddings, but I really did enjoy it. Very easy and relaxing, with the usual broken relationship, and meeting with a handsome hulk at the beginning, with the reader knowing quite well that the heroine with get together with this much more suitable hero. Alls well that ends well. I loved reading about the wonderful chocolate.
