Goodreads:   From Sarah Strohmeyer, author of Smart Girls Get What They Want, comes this romantic comedy about one girl’s summer job from hell. Think The Devil Wears Prada set in Disney World.

When cousins Zoe and Jess land summer internships at the Fairyland Kingdom theme park, they are sure they’ve hit the jackpot. With perks like hot Abercrombie-like Prince Charmings and a chance to win the coveted $25,000 Dream & Do grant, what more could a girl want?

Once Zoe arrives, however, she’s assigned to serve “The Queen”-Fairyland’s boss from hell. From spoon-feeding her evil lapdog caviar, to fetching midnight sleeping tonics, Zoe fears she might not have what it takes to survive the summer, much less win the money.

Soon backstabbing interns, a runaway Cinderella, and cutthroat competition make Zoe’s job more like a nightmare than a fairy tale. What will happen when Zoe is forced to choose between serving The Queen and saving the prince of her dreams?

Ope’s Opinion: This book had more twists and turns then any mountain road I have ever been on ( and I have been on a lot )!  Just when I didn’t think there were anymore twist – another one happened.  After a while I wasn’t even interested in trying to figure out who was telling the truth.  It just got too complicated.  I did like the way it ended, but getting there was hard.

                                    It was hard to tell who the good characters were.  I was rooting for Zoe and her cousin Jess, but after that, it wasn’t clear who to trust.

                                   I have several of Sarah Strohmeyer’s books.  I hope I like the next one better then I did this one.

Rating:  Two Chairs – I may have one friend who might like this book.
