Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme, asshole buys up developments in a small town and kicks a plucky heroine and her struggling friends to the curb. Bella won't be held down though--especially when sexy newcomer Melanie Grim invites her to the mysterious 1920s hotel she owns with her family--and only her family, it seems. Dying rose gardens and crabby family members are small fry compared to her best friend losing her home, and her other best friend losing her mind and making nice with the bad guy. Will Bella save the small town and Melanie's heart?
Wolves, small town drama, big dreams and a little mouse named Mr. Cheese--Beauty and the Wolf is a modern fairy tale with a lot of heart. We know the story, but the trappings are new and fun: the crabby family with a checkered past, the precocious little wolf nephew who's as sweet as he is bloodthirsty, and a broody love interest who wants to make the world a better place, while keeping her family safe. A quick, romantic read, and a welcome addition to Bridget Essex's canon of wolfy love stories.
