Tapestry designer, Eloise, has lived a somewhat secluded life in the village into which she'd moved two years previously. Trying to put an unhappy past behind her, she lives alone with a retired greyhound Gracie, who'd been badly treated by her former owners.
When the grand house opposite Eloise's small cottage is brought by someone from outside the village and the new owner throws a moving-in party, her curiosity about the interior of the house overcomes her reluctance to go to a social event, and she attends the party.
While there, she slips away from the crowd of guests and illicitly explores the house, increasingly critical of the impersonal, sterile interior design and the lack of colours which would have enhanced the Gothic features. Turning away from the balcony to go back into the building, she finds herself stepping 'into the barrier of a solid male chest'. The chest belongs to the good-looking owner, Ross, a successful crime author.
Instantly finding Ross attractive, Eloise has to pull herself up sharply and remind herself that she doesn't want any messy entanglements, not now that she was at last putting the past behind her and settling down. She was happy living alone with Gracie, and that was how it was going to stay.
Or so she thought.
I won't spoil the novella for you by telling you any more, but will just repeat that this was a thoroughly enjoyable story, fluently written, with likeable characters - apart from Brett, that is - and I highly recommend it.
Only True in Fairy Tales is not your conventional boy meets girl and they fall in love story, which is what I expected from this book after reading its title. This novella, however, has so much more substance and plot revelations to offer than a “simple” love story. All the way through I had to idea how this book would pan out.
Only True in Fairy Tales can easily be read in one sitting. I am positively surprised at how much content there was in this novella. I was left wanting more of its main characters and would love to read a sequel to this book (hint to the author: please write more about these characters :-)).
This novella is such a well written and romantic story with lead characters that need to find out how superficial it is to judge someone from a first meeting. In order to fully appreciate each other, they need to learn so much more about one another.
Whilst it is a typical girl meets boy story, it's told in such a wonderful way. It's almost as if the author has weaved magic through her writing and really brought the characters to life.
I couldn't put down it because I desperately wanted to know what happened next, always a sign of a good book.
I even cared about Gracie, the rescue greyhound, so much so, that it encouraged us to go to a greyhound rescue centre, and we will soon have our very own Gracie :)
Eloise's had a troubled past and that makes her vulnerable and headstrong at the same time. I loved her character, the way she looked and her creativity. The descriptions of both houses and the surroundings were wonderful. I really liked the village life. Gracie is also quite special and she and Eloise are a great pair. Ross is a kind man, but he isn't always easy to communicate with, especially not when something inspires him. Only True in Fairy Tales is a sweet and romantic novella that is great because of a strong story with two beautiful and artistic main characters.
Eloise must have read too many gothic romances in her past and the result is endearing. She reminded me of Catherine Moorland from Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey but in a modern-day setting – but even more charming.
Ross Farrell is a mysterious new-comer, who has the brooding qualities of a writer and is so utterly charming. Then adding the adorable Gracie to the mix- equals a heart warming story. My only complaint about this novella is that I wished it was full length. I didn’t want it to end so soon.
“Only true in fairy tales” is beautifully written and just the perfect size for sneaking off with for an afternoon treat. If you deserve a treat, then this is the book for you.
