“it wasn’t those ill-fitting glass slippers that gave Cinderella the confidence to crash that ball. It was the dress-the dress made her do it!”
I enjoyed listening to this very much. It had the flavor of old New York during the 1950s or 60s despite being set in the 2000s. It reminded me of the old movie Tales of Manhattan. Since they had different actors for each character, I didn’t have any trouble keeping everybody straight. I actually heard about this book from The Printed Letter Bookshop which was chock-full of real book titles that were recommended to the customers depending on the kind of book they were in the mood for. It also reminded me of an old book by Bernard Glemser called Here Come the Brides. (If you follow this link, please ignore the cover of this book. It was very poorly marketed.)This would make a great romantic comedy movie along the lines of Love, Actually or the Garry Marshall holiday movies. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys Sophie Kinsella. It was very light and frothy. A real charmer.
