Becoming Beauty ~ Review


Welcome to Becoming Beauty's Blog Tour! Learn all about Sarah E. Boucher and her exciting new Young Adult novel based on the classic fairy tale Beauty and The Beast.

Becoming Beauty

Self-centered Bella focuses her attention on beautiful dresses and fabulous balls rather than helping her family earn a living.  And her siblings have had enough! To pay off their father’s debt, they send Bella to a far-off manor where the owner is more like a beast than a man.

As their personalities clash, Bella comes to realize there’s more to the Beast than she could ever have dreamed—if only she can look beneath the surface. And then there’s Jack, the kind servant who helps Bella adjust to her new life, someone Bella could easily fall in love with. But pursuing love may cost Bella her dreams of wealth and beauty. And that’s a price she’s not willing to pay.

Becoming Beauty is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and books and things.


Review
Becoming Beauty
By Sarah Boucher

Bella is determined to marry a nobleman and to do this she must look the part she intends to hold. But she is the daughter of a humble carpenter.  But Bella can talk her father into getting her whatever she wants.  But when her selfish, self-centered attitude becomes too much her brother and sister decide it's time for Bella to learn the true cost of her manipulations.

To pay the debt her father has incurred, Bella is sent to serve in the home of a man who is more beast-like than human.  This dark and foreboding home in the middle of nowhere is shrouded in mystery and sorrow.   Who is Jack and why would he willingly serve this Beast?  And even more perplexing is the absent Rose who haunts Bella's dreams.  Where is this young woman and why did she disappear?  The truth about Rose is the key to Bella's future.

In this retelling of Beauty and the Beast we have a beauty whose personality is anything but beautiful.  And we have a beast who needs someone to help him heal.  And then there is Jack the patient faithful servant who tries to keep the peace while hiding his own secrets.  Becoming Beauty is the story of three people who are damaged and in need of healing.

This is a beautiful and lovely story that will lave you wishing for just one more chapter, though it is not necessary.  Prepare to be enchanted in a timeless story that needs no magic to cast its spell!

I was provided a copy of this book by Cedar Fort in exchange for my honest review and for my participation in this blog tour.
