I have always loved Michele Paige Holmes writing, but this book (I feel I say this with all of her writing) is my favorite!  I love fairy tales and this one mixes them all up into a great suspenseful read.  A mixture of Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Jack and the Bean Stalk and I feel even some Snow White is present in this book.  Michele is a magician when it comes to making words come alive and jump off the pages.  I definitely will be looking forward to the next book in the series.
