Review: The Enchanted Truth by Kym Petrie

| Monday, August 6, 2012
I'd like to thank Net Galley and Greenleaf Book Group for the opportunity to read and review this book.

Blurb from Goodreads: In this humorous and insightful tale, a modern day princess finds herself single and asking for magical intervention to change her sorry love life. Rather than casting a spell to bring Prince Charming to her rescue, a savvy fairy godmother gives the tenderhearted damsel an unexpected gift. By entrusting her true thoughts and desires to an unlikely confidant, the young royal soon discovers that the person who could make her life everything she dreamed it would be has been with her all along.

As author Kym Petrie herself realized, every woman needs a froggy friend and a secret journal—and enough adventures with the girls to keep her heart pounding and her mind racing. Life is meant to be about happy beginnings . . . you can never have enough of them.

I really loved this short tale. At 40 pages it was a quick and insightful read.

Petrie touches on the fact that woman should be happy with themselves and love what they have within themselves rather than looking elsewhere for happiness. By using the old fairy tale of the princess and prince charming, she shows young women everywhere that they should not settle for anything better than what they really want. 

I liked how in just a few short pages, Petrie was able to show the Princess go from a needy, codependent girl to an independent, get what she wants kind of woman. She is able to transform the main character right before our eyes.

This is a wonderful tale for young women everywhere who believe they will never find the man of their dreams and will be lonely. It's a tale of coming into yourself and believing in your self.

I really enjoyed this quick read!

4 out of 5 stars.
