Publisher's Summary

When Tansy Poole inherits a run-down shoe shop tucked away in the village of Sticklepond, ‘Cinderella’s Slippers’ is born - providing the footwear to make any fairy-tale wedding come true…Carrying everything a bride would want to walk down the aisle in, Tansy’s shop soon expands to carry shoe-themed wedding favours, bridesmaid gifts and even delicious chocolate shoes. It’s the dream destination for any shoe-lover! If only everything in her personal life could be as heavenly – but with a fiancé trying to make her fit into a size 8 wedding dress, not to mention the recent discovery of disturbing family revelations, Tansy takes refuge in the shop’s success.
But one man isn’t thrilled by the stream of customer’s hot-footing it to Cinderella’s Slippers… Actor Ivo Hawksley, resident of the cottage next to the shop, is troubled by a dark secret in his past and has come to Sticklepond to nurse his own broken heart. However, Ivo realises that he and Tansy have a link in their past and soon, they both find out how secrets shared can make a very strong bond indeed…

Don't waste your credit

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

It was boring cannot imagine who would enjoy it


What could Trisha Ashley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Improve the story it is basically about a 92 year old who gives a running commentary to her grand niece about her life. The grand neice goes on and on about opening a bridal shoe shop in the old ladies shop.
The story just waffles going nowhere. I tried for three hours but just cannot listen to it.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Julia Rounthwaite?

Maybe Jane Collingwood this narrator reads the story in a way that you cannot distinguish between the characters apart from the old lady that character is portrayed slightly differently.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment I only purchased it two days ago and was really looking forward to starting a new book but instead it is just boring.
