Rapunzel Untangled by Cindy C. Bennett

*Claps Hands* That has to be my very favorite retailing. Loved ever minute of it, loved the way Mrs. Bennett works in the old fairy tale with a contemporary flare. I wasn't quite sure it would work or could be done with the Rapunzel story, but wow kudos to her for doing such a wonderful job. I didn't want to put this one down, kept wondering what was going to happen and how. I loved the characters too especially Fab or I should say Fane. He was so sweet, curious, caring, chivalrous, just an all around amazing guy. He was so concerned with Rapunzel her feelings and if she would be okay. He wanted her to have and get the most out of life and he wanted to help her anyway he could. Rapunzel is stuck in a tower with no knowledge of the world around her. I am going to have to be vague I don't want to spoil the story. Since Rapunzel is so secluded in her world she is naive , but really a sweet person, and quite courageous considering her situation. Rapunzel's "mother" Gothel was a piece of work, ugh she was just a mess played her part convincingly, but what a rotten person. I loved the romance in this story it was really sweet and endearing. This is was a really fun and engaging read that I did not want to put down. If you are one who loves to read fairy tale retellings this is one you will not wat to miss. I was fortunate to read this as and arc from Cedar Fort, but I plan to buy it to add to my personnel library.
