Rapunzel Untangled by Cindy C Bennett

Fab Fane Fannigan: Are you saying you live at GOTHEL MANSION??? The Gothel Mansion?

RG: My mother calls it Gothel Manor, so maybe that’s different?

Fab Fane Flannigan: No, Rapunzel, there’s only one that I know of. It has to be the same. Are you telling me the truth here?

RG: Yes, of course. Is it weird that I live here?

Fab Fane Flannigan: No, not weird, just . . . never mind. So you live in the tower?

RG: Uh, the tower? I don’t know. Is it a tower?

Fab Fane Flannigan: Yes, it is. I know where it is. I’ll be there Friday at 8.

Rapunzel sensed the difference in his tone. Something wasn’t right.

Fab Fane Flannigan: Rapunzel, promise me one thing.

RG: Okay.

Fab Fane Flannigan: Don’t Google your house.

My Review


Rapunzel would like to be a normal teenager, but that is kind of hard for her. You see, she has a disease that makes it too easy for her to get germs from others and that can kill her. That means her mother keeps her locked in a tower, away from anyone that could infect her with germs. She's never been to a school, or hung out with friends, she doesn't even have a cell phone. And her hair, she's never been allowed to cut it and it's 15 feet long! Things change for Rapunzel when she discovers Facebook. Suddenly she's able to find a list of kids her age. She works up her courage and clicks the button marked "Add as Friend' for a boy named Fab Fane Flannigan. Hoping against hope that he will add her as his friend, even though he's never met her, Rapunzel waits impatiently, but her waiting is rewarded by having Fane become her very first Facebook friend. Pretty soon, they are instant messaging back and forth about everything under the sun and Fane wants to meet Rapunzel. Rapunzel's really not sure about that, she's not supposed to see anyone besides her mother, she could die! But when Rapunzel's mother leaves for a few days, Rapunzel decides that having a friend is well worth the risk of dying. And so it is, but what will happen when Rapunzel starts questioning everything her mother has ever told her? 

This book was so fun! I loved the fairy-taleness of it. I loved Rapunzel, she was so trusting. I loved Fane and his ability to get Rapunzel to question and learn more about her world. I loved the beginning, the ending (although I was sad it had to end!) and everything in between. This book was a bit dark, but nothing terribly scary. This book was everything I could have hoped for in a re-telling of Rapunzel!

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …

Blog Tour - Love and Fat Free Cheese

About the book: Fat-free cheese is okay—unless you’ve tasted real cheese. Juliet Easton learns this about love too as she uncovers who truly loves her, and who is using her to get to the secret she knows about the disappearance of her sister’s fiance and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
