APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In Fairytale, legendary novelist Danielle Steel reimagines the classic story of Cinderella for the modern era. The book centres around Camille, a fiery beauty born and bred in the wealthy Napa Valley. Her charmed life is thrown into disarray when her mother tragically dies and her father shacks up with a French countess. What ensues is an alluring novel of bravery, deceit and glamour that enlivens the age-old ‘Good vs Evil’ tale. Fairytale is a dazzling drama, with rich descriptions that plunge you straight into the romantic world of wineries and the bucolic Californian setting.
Good book, hard to put down.
Not one of her better ones. Boring story line without much to entice you to keep reading
