by Lisa Scott
Overview (from B&N.com): Shawna White wants nothing more than to land a role in a musical, but she’s running out of cash while she chases her dream. Her stepmother, Veronica Midas, suggests she take a nanny job for the rich man she’s trying to land, and Shawna finds herself in charge of seven kids. But Veronica didn’t realize Shawna would be living there, enchanting Jeremy and his children. Now Veronica will do whatever it takes to win her man. “Snow” a modern take on Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.
This short story (74 pages on the Nook) was really sweet. It was a true modernized retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. The romance was believable and the main character, Shawna White, was absolutely lovable. I also liked the fact that she wasn’t the typical damsel in distress, she had gumption. Lisa Scott’s interpretation of Snow White will leave you happy and rooting for a happily-ever-after in your own life. I could not stop smiling as I was reading this story. This short story can be found as a stand alone or as part of the Fairytale Flirts! collection. An intriguing part of this collection is the way that Scott effortlessly weaves her other fairy tale characters into each short story, in order to link them. If you love fairy tales, you may want to check this out. If you’re a cynic and project that into what you read and watch, this definitely won’t be your cup of tea. I would definitely recommend it as an upbeat, light read.
