Charlie Glass's Slippers : A Very Modern Fairytale
by Holly McQueen




Overview -
In this delightful, clever spin on Cinderella, Charlie Glass--a heroine as loveable as Cannie Shapiro and Bridget Jones--inherits her father's shoe empire and snatches up a drop-dead-gorgeous, multi-millionaire Prince Charming. But is he truly the key to her happily ever after?

When Charlie's beloved father, iconic shoe designer Elroy Glass, dies after a long illness, everyone expects that he'll leave his business to his glamorous wife and eldest daughters. After all, they've been running the company for years. But Elroy surprises everyone from beyond the grave: at the will reading, it's announced that his fashion empire has been left to Charlie, his youngest--and plumpest--daughter.

Before she can run the company, Charlie decides she needs to make a few changes in her life. After several weeks at a California boot camp, she returns to London a new woman: thinner, blonder, and ready to revitalize the Elroy Glass brand. But as she'll soon discover, a good esthetician and a killer pair of stilettos can only go so far, and there's more to reinvention--and running a fashion empire--than meets the eye.

Endlessly entertaining, surprising, and ultimately inspiring, Charlie Glass's Slippers is a modern-day fairytale about finding your own magic and transforming yourself from within.
