Publisher's Summary

In Isabella Austin Evangelista's life miracles never happen...she knows she's destined to be the princess who's stuck in the middle of a fairytale where there will be no happily ever after. Once upon a time, Prentice Cameron loved Isabella Austin until he discovered she was a spoiled, rich girl who spent her summers toying with his heart.

Life led Prentice to his own fairytale, the love of the full-of-life Fiona Sawyer. That being so, that fairytale was torn away when Fiona died of a brain tumor leaving Prentice with a house to keep clean, piles of laundry to be done, a business to run and two children who were getting tired of takeaway.

But Isabella comes back to Prentice's tiny fishing town and she sweeps into his children's lives like a beautiful, well-dressed fairy godmother who bakes exquisite chocolate cakes and gives the perfect manicure to six-year-old girls. Then Prentice finds out Isabella's soul destroying secrets, secrets that explain why she left him so many years ago.

Fiona, stuck in her village and forced to haunt her family and watch Prentice and Isabella's crazy dance, finds the impossible happening. She's cheering for Bella and Prentice to rekindle their love. Then she finds out why she's caught in her heartbreaking haunting and discovers she must embrace her magic and keep Bella safe or Bella's fairytale will never come true.

    "Wow perfect KA five stars"

    Lovely second chance romance, typical KA style, fantastic characters that draw you into the story.
    Don't want to say too much as will spoil a great book, but if you love KA this is a must read, Narration is excellent!

    "The most beautiful story ever told...."
    Any additional comments?

    I read this book last year and it brought tears to eyes. Every moment was etch in my heart and it never failed to bring out a range of emotions, and I stress the TEARY parts. When I noted that there wasn't an audible version, I was upset because I wanted to hear this beautiful novel being read back to me. However, I was also afraid that the reader would not be able to bring it to justice because it was that beautiful.<br/><br/>Boy was I wrong. Aby Craden was the only person I could ever imagine to bring this book and it's unforgettable characters to life. She breath life into each and every words. Last night, as i was listening, pulling an all nighter, my pillows was soaked in tears by the time the sunshined through my windows. <br/><br/>I recommend this story for anyone looking for a romance that is poignant, emotional, and best of all unforgettable. I know that even though I've read this novels many times over (20+) since I discovered it last year, and now was granted the wish of listening to it being performed by an amazing artist, it will be a staple on my kindle and audible app forever so I can pull it up whenever I need a reminder that love conquers all.

    "A beautiful story"

    I cried from the beginning to the end. I loved this book. I think this is one of KA's best, heart wrenching with a very happy ending.

    "Fantastic"

    Great story. Kristen Ashley is the queen. Plus I thoroughly enjoyed the narration of Abby Craden. Her Scottish accent is wonderful esp when she speaks in a little girl voice for Sally.

    "Awesome"
    Would you listen to Fairytale Come Alive again? Why?

    Yes, I love the way all the characters were portrayed especially Sally. Sally stole my heart.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fairytale Come Alive?

    The whole book was great!


    What about Abby Craden’s performance did you like?

    I liked how she was able to give each character their own voice. I don't know if she nailed the highlander accent but it sounded wonderful to me.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and I almost did aside from the last 2 hours.


    Any additional comments?

    I originally read this book in June 2012 and I was so excited when I discovered it was coming out on audible because it was like reading (listening to) it again for the first time. I'll definitely be listening to it again.

    Story
    "This book is....DREAMY!"
    What made the experience of listening to Fairytale Come Alive the most enjoyable?

    The title perfectly describes the story!


    What other book might you compare Fairytale Come Alive to and why?

    This one has not compare although...perhaps...a little bit of the perfect wistfullness of Three Wishes can be found here.


    What does Abby Craden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She did a great job with multiple accents. It is one of her better ones, but I don't usually like what she has done so far for this author. She makes the "tamptrums" of the characters sound bratty..and NOT in the cute manner the author intends.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Sometimes Happily Ever After gets delayed.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was so good I can't do it justice in a review.
    The epilogue was amazing and will have you crying tears of joy until the very end.

    I only hope the author at some point does a novella on Jason and Sally's roads to happily ever after.

    Story
    "Thank goodness for the Scottish brogue!"

    I usually enjoy EVERYTHING by these authors but I really struggled with this one. Thank goodness for the Scottish brogue otherwise I wouldn't have even been able to get past the prologue. It was a struggle to finally find the heroine appealing... either of them... since there were 2 of them. The timeline was way unrealistic. Twenty years? Really? No one pines for that long. No adult woman is that afraid of father after age 21 let alone at 40 years old! She would have been back in Scotland the minute after graduating from Northwestern (I am not going to even mention that although Northwestern University is considered Ivy League to Chicagoans, anyone that rich would be attending Harvard, Yale, etc.)

    Once I got into the storyline, I really did enjoy it as much as the others in this series. I enjoyed the mental health awareness issues that were brought out in several characters. I appreciated the exploration of the healing process of grief and loss that comes from losing a mother.

    I didn't enjoy this narrator. She made the heroines sound especially annoying and weak with the whining and whispering and did I mention whining? It took a longer time to like the heroine because of this narrator.

    Story
    "Excellent"

    I read this years ago. I recently got the audible version which is absolutely wonderful. As I like to do, I read as I listen and realized I never reviewed this book.

    If you enjoy cookie cutter romance, this one isn't for you. This romance is much more than romance interrupted then they get back together. There is background story (without a lot of chapters in between dating back years) done well within the story. There is mystery interwoven as to why it happened the way it did. There is lots of story after they end up in bed when they get back together. There is an epilogue that will warm the heart and brought tears to my eyes (the happy kind). Such an epically good book. So Kristen Ashley. There is some supernatural ghost qualities that don't go along with my beliefs of when you die but this is a story and it isn't the main theme and it's done with love. Do yourself a big favor, read this and get the audible version. Whispersync is great. The narrator does an excellent job. It truly enhances the story.
