Rose Petals and Snowflakes ~ Book Review

 Rose Petals & Snowflakes
The Austen Fairy Tale #1
By Kendra E. Ardnek

Rose Petals and Snowflakes is a delightful blend of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibilities and Snow White and Rose Red. With her father on his deathbed, Elinrose has to save her older half-brother James from a foolish decision. As an heir to the throne, James must be brought out of the Forest. No one ever leaves the Forest but Elinrose is hoping to barter for James's release even if it is her own life.

The price for James's release is marriage to another who was held by the Forest. But this is just the beginning of the troubles Elinrose and her sister Snowmari are to face, when they, along with their mother and niece end up in a small cottage in the Forest.

I really enjoyed how the familiarity of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility wove together so well with the fairytale-retelling of Snow White and Rose Red. I love the magical elements and how they affected the various characters and how they are portrayed. This is one book you don't want to miss reading.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion. All thoughts expressed are my own.

Book Description:
