A Happily Ever After of Her Own by Nadia Lee

A Happily Ever After of Her Own - Nadia Lee

***available in the Once Upon A Fairy Tale collection***

Melinda Lightfoot has the ability of travelling between our and the fairy tale realm. But one day she is caught trespassing in The Beauty and the Beast fairy tale and charged with kidnapping Beauty as the heroine disappears.

In order to overthrow her conviction as a Fairy Tale Killer, Melinda must return to the real world and find Beauty. She has three days to do it, and to make things even more complicated, Beast (in his studly princely form) decides to tag along.

This one was a hoot to read with Edward (Beast) experiencing cultural shock as he accompanied Melinda to the real world.

I liked both protagonists, though I wish the romance would've been developed a little bit better, but I guess the author was pressed for time.
The final resolution also felt a bit rushed, but "they all lived happily ever after".
