Ladybug Lin Reviews...A CHRISTMAS SLEEPING BEAUTY

Once upon a time, long, long ago...

How many times did we hear that opening salvo when someone read the fairy tales passed down through the generations to us as children? Even in some of our adult fantasies, they can and do begin "ONCE UPON A TIME..."

Fairy Tales are, I think, our first foray into love and Happily Ever After...simplistic love won through valiant deeds of derring do without question or delving into the escalation of how we become loved.

A CHRISTMAS SLEEPING BEAUTY takes an oldddddd tale and dives in to what really must have happened between the brave quest of the hero and his winning the heart and soul of the heroine.

This is an expanded version of Sleeping Beauty. The Princes peppering the fairy tales of old are one dimensional..."he swung his mighty axe cleaving a path through the hundred years of weeds, thorns and gnarled neglect." 

Lindsay Townsend decided..unh uh...just because he's brave and she's beautiful lying there awaiting his kiss, doesn't mean he can truly awaken her with that kiss until he has won her heart, suspended in her long slumber.

I LOVE this tale and since Christmas is my favorite season, delighted in Lindsay choosing to make this modern Fairy Tale for us grown-ups a Christmas event...

a Christmas Gift.

I gratefully accept your gift Lindsay, and thank you for wrapping it up in such enchantment.

It is with great joy I award this Muse It Up release, A CHRISTMAS SLEEPING BEAUTY

FIVE Wish-filled Stars.

Well Done Lindsay Townsend!

Thank you so much, Lin, for your lovely review!

I love fairy tales of all kinds and often find the themes they explore both epic and romantic. Timeless, too.

Lindsay--love those stars! What a beautiful cover, and the new take on the old story sounds just perfect. Best wishes for great success with this tale.
