Eloise loves Hookfield. Her cottage is a safe haven for her and the beautiful house across the street has been a source of inspiration for her work. She designs tapestries. When a famous crime author buys Prospect House she's immediately impressed. Ross is a gentleman, but Eloise doesn't want to think about love at all. She's been damaged in the past and she wants to stay in her own, safe world together with her scared rescue dog, Gracie. Eloise and Ross keep running into each other and he helps her out of a few dire situations. Will Ross be able to make Eloise change her mind?
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.
