Seattle Cinderella by Gail Sattler

A modern Cinderella and her cohorts are enchanted by love in Seattle. Cindy is forced into running her late father’s muffler shop and employing horrid step-sisters, Annie and Zella. Can she garner the emotional energy needed to protect her heart against Luke’s princely charms? Annie Wilson’s past misdeeds have tarnished her reputation. Can she prove to herself and Brent that she’s a changed woman? Zella is busy writing her own life story. Will it involve murder or romance? Farrah, Cindy’s godmother, has caught a younger man’s eye. How long can she deter his advances? Will God make these couples’ dreams come true?

Reviewer: Fashionta
I liked this anthology a lot and it's an interesting take on things but I don’t think readers are going to enjoy this as there's some credibility issues that is created in the second story.

The first story starts setting the relationship between the four girls featured in the novel. The first is a Cinderella story where the story of Cindy is told and the troubles she has. It's like a first love story but with a twist. The guy has been waiting months to get her attention and when she does pay attention sparks fly.

Months have gone by since the first story and there's been massive changes that seem too much to comprehend and might not be credible to the readers. But yes, it works out and they have their happily ever after.

The third focuses on the third sister, who left with their mother who has dreams that go against her principles; so she joins a book club and uses one of the members to help her with interesting results.

The fourth story is bittersweet with two people who’s past is holding them back. This story will make you overlook the other issues.

I have to give this anthology 4 stars.
