Hott Review:

What I liked: I really enjoyed the writing and plot of Cinderella and the Ghost. It felt so real and the sisters and fairy godmother are so much more fun in this retelling!
What I didn’t like: I felt that the steam was more detailed and prominent than necessary. Also, has I looked at the series titles before I grabbed this one I probably wouldn’t have read it, but I’d have missed out, because she’s a great writer.

Author Bio:

Although Marina Myles lives under the sunny skies of Arizona, she would reside in a historic manor house in foggy England if she had her way. Her love of books began as soon as she read her first fairy tale, and grew by leaps and bounds when she discovered Nancy Drew/Agatha Christie mysteries and rich, historical romances.

Dreaming of becoming a published author, she wrote her first ‘gothic’ story at age eleven. She went on to study creative writing at Southern Methodist University- where she received degrees in Communications and English Literature. During her time in Dallas, she had the unique experience of being a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader.

Now with her loyal Maltese close by, she relishes the hours she gets to escape into worlds filled with tortured heroes, strong heroines, and their fiery-but not easily attained-love affairs. She’s busy being a wife (to her Italian-born husband) and a mother (to her two beautiful daughters), but she is never too busy to hear from her amazing readers.
