The Sleeping Beauty Proposal

Image from
After reading The Cinderella Pact by Sarah Strohmeyer, I continued the fairytale and picked up The Sleeping Beauty proposal by the same author.

Are you a person who goes after what you want or do you sit back and hope that good things happen to you? The protagonist in this novel, Geanie Michaels has been known to do the later hence earning her the title of Sleeping Beauty.  She finally “wakes up” and starts to take control of her life when she realizes that her prince charming boyfriend has just proposed on national television, but it wasn’t to her.  Geanie’s friends and family hear of the proposal second hand and naturally think that it was meant for her and start planning a celebration. Part of Geanie wants to come clean in spite of the embarrassment the false proposal has caused and the other part of her wants to go along with the fairytale.

Of course it was the title and the fancy purple cover that drew me to this book, but I certainly was not disappointed in the story.  New- to –me author Sarah Strohmeyer tells great stories about modern day woman who’s struggles may be tales as old as time!

Add this fairytale to your list of summer reads and you won’t be disappointed!
