When Celeste is tricked into going to Henri’s home in her sister’s stead, she believes she’s only there to be his housekeeper. Thrilled to leave Marseille and her beautiful sister far behind, and intent on keeping her father out of debtor’s prison, she throws herself into repairing Henri’s chateau and reputation.
As Celeste’s work uncovers the secrets of Henri’s self-banishment, she must choose between her growing love for him and her own safety. And until the right daughter arrives to help him save his livelihood, Henri must fight his growing attraction to his infuriating future sister-in-law, who seems intent on transforming his heart along with his household. Sister to Beauty is a sweet historical romance retelling of the classic fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast.
So cute, I bought it even after receiving a free copy
I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review.
This is the cutest retelling of Beauty and the Beast I have ever read! Roxanne gave all of us “sisters to beauty” a voice and some character. As a lifelong fan of fantasy and fairytale stories, I can truly recommend this one. The content is clean, funny and creative.
A fun twist on a classic
I love when authors take a story I know and love and make it fresh and exciting. It’s like getting to read the story again for the first time, enjoying the parallels and seeking the differences that make it stand apart.
Sister to Beauty delivers just such an experience. For lovers of sweet romance, this fairy tale is for you!
