The Cinderella Blues (Thuh Sin'dur-rel'uh Bluze) n.1. The phenomena whereby otherwise intelligent, capable, successful professional women are convinced they need rescuing by a prince.
Could Cinderella end up with the wrong prince? Kat Young is romantic, and she's searching for love but hasn't been lucky. She works in an office, and her boss's boss, Jason, is charming and attractive. She fantasizes about him. Could she catch his eye? Should she?
Then there's the old regular she's had on standby for eight years, a guy who doesn't inspire her, and he dumps her! Kat begins to wonder and bake. She has a great talent for making scrumptious cookies when she has the blues.
Surprisingly, Jason shows interest. When he kisses Kat, her toes tingle. Then, when a business trip doesn't go quite as planned and it sends Kat running away as fast as she can.
She has quirky, supportive friends who also add interest to the story. Kat's many fantasies land her in heaps of trouble at times, even leading to a car accident. She's a normal, easy-to-relate-to character, and her story is written in an entertaining way. There's this other guy, Cooper, who's cute, smart, and an artist, but she's had such bad luck with men, she decides that she just wants Cooper as a friend, even though he's interested.
What will happen to the likeable Kat? Will she finally find happiness in love? The Cinderella Blues is a light read, and those who like modern-day romance should check this one out.
