Diamonds and Toads A Modern Fairy Tale by K.E. Saxon

Once upon a time, there were two sisters, one blessed,and one cursed by fairy magic....

So each sister's story begins.
Delilah Perrault is blessed with riches beyond her wildest dreams and the man she's had her eye on for ages--even though he secretly has designs on her newfound wealth instead. Delilah's half-sister, Isadora, is cursed with having her every utterance come out as an obscene and humiliating quip, just when the gorgeous hunk she dumped years before under pressure from mama swaggers back into her life.

If you like Bewitched, Sex and the City and Gossip Girl, try out this modern girl's fairy tale.

My Thoughts:
If you haven't read a fairy tale lately, you are going to want to pick up this book.  It will have you wanting more to read more and renew your belief in a great fairy tale. This is a more modern, today kind of fairy tale about two sisters Delilah and her half sister Isadora. 

This really is a great story, it pulled me in from the very first page and kept me turning the pages pretty fast right to the very end of the story.  The fairy godmother such a fun character, very quirky I loved that about her. Now the two sisters stories are told separately but in one story.  To look at the cover you would never guess how this story unfolds, it will make you laugh out loud, I know I did, and when you read sitting on the bus, you get some very weird looks lol, it had some great steamy scenes in it, and just when you think you have Isadora's character all figured out, you find how wrong you really are. I like Delilah's character as well, you would think you wouldn't like her, but you really do, and the villain couldn't have been more perfect for this book, very well done!!

You really have to go and get your copy of this book, you will not be dissapointed at and like I said at the beginning and leave you wanting more.  This was a great new spin on an old classic tale, so if you like a story with the good and bad sister and the wicked stepmother and the fairy godmother, this will book will not let you down.  I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!!!   Enjoy everyone. :)
