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.
So, I was searching through NetGalley to find something funny to read. You know, something that would make me laugh out loud and possibly fall off my chair. I stumbled across The Enchanted Truth by Kym Petrie, a 40 page book about a princess wishing to find her Knight in Shining Armor. While the subject matter isn’t necessarily a new discovery, I love how it was written. Basically, this princess has been let down by so many Prince Charmings and is ready to just find Mr. Right. Of course, her fairy godmother isn’t about to just HAND it to her. She gives her a leather frog with a pouch in the front to put all the qualities she’d like in a man.
The story has a great moral about self love and how important it is to be your own best company.
