The Cinderella pact : a novel

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

Strohmeyer's (The Secret Lives of Fortunate Wives; the "Bubbles Yablonsky" series) seventh novel is a modern Cinderella story starring a smart, funny, full-figured single woman in her thirties. Unhappy both with her weight and her low-level editorial job for celebrity magazine Sass!, Nola Devin embarks on a weight-reduction pact with her two best friends and applies for an opening at the magazine to become its new advice columnist. When her application is treated dismissively by her boss, the trim and tyrannical Lori DiGrigio, the undaunted Nola doctors an old photograph of herself and submits a fake r?sum? and application under the name of Belinda Apple. When Belinda is hired and becomes all the rage, the fun really begins. This contemporary fairy tale, complete with a Prince Charming, differs from the traditional primarily in that, with a little help from her friends, the lady effects her own transformation. Very enjoyable; recommended for all fiction collections.-Sheila Riley, Smithsonian Inst. Libs., Washington, DC (c) Copyright 2010.
