The Charmed Wife By Olga Grushin

The Charmed Wife By Olga Grushin


Cinderella married the man of her dreams – the perfect ending she deserved after diligently following all the fairy-tale rules. Yet now, two children and thirteen-and-a-half years later, things have gone badly wrong.

One night, she sneaks out of the palace to get help from the Witch who, for a price, offers love potions to disgruntled housewives. But as the old hag flings the last ingredients into the cauldron, Cinderella doesn’t ask for a love spell to win back her Prince Charming.

Instead, she wants him dead.

My Thoughts:

When we hear of Cinderella we think of a happy ever after don’t we? what happens if that doesn’t happen? taking a part fairy tales and marriage is what Olga has done to this story, it is cleverly written with a hint of humour. I personally thought back to all the fairy tales I knew from my childhood and I like the way that it picks up the story a few years after her and Prince Charming got married. There is an important message behind the story but be careful you don’t get put under the spell.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

One thought on “The Charmed Wife By Olga Grushin

  1. Oh wow, this sounds really interesting! I am not a big fan of “happily ever afters” and so this one really appeals to me. I’ll definitely check it out and will probably end up adding it to my list.
