    2. Sixteen year old Megan wants to be a doctor When she volunteers at a residential home she is tasked with listening to Lady, an ancient woman whose mind seems to be fractured, telling disjointed fragments of a story about a duke who never aged, a duke cursed to have his life tied to the fate of the roses in his garden.Is the Duke real, or a figment of Lady s misty imagination Will the magic mirror reveal the truth As the mystery unravels, Megan learns a hidden family secret that could change her [...]

    3.

    4. Be sure to check out my blog post for this book 3 1 2 Roses Lovely ReTellingReTellings are often clever and creative, and can be some of the best stories Taking a well known story and painting it in a new light is sometimes the best way to freshen up a classic, and give it new life Beauty and the Beast is one of the most famous fairy tales, and with the live action film release this year, interest in this story seems renewed What could be a better time for a retelling In this story, Megan is a t [...]

    5. Shattered Roses is a tale I struggled to rate, finally settling on 3.5 stars The reason for my dilemma will soon become clear First off, I loved the premise I thought Parfitt brought an interesting take on the classic story and, aside from a few minor typos and grammar slips, I liked her prose However, the book didn t quite work for me because I felt as if we didn t get the full story Both Megan s tale and Lady s, on their own, would have been worthy of an expanded word count to explore them ful [...]

    6. I love fairytale retellings so when I received this review request I was incredibly happy I have read several retellings and really enjoyed most of them This one had my hoped pretty high While I wouldn t say that this one is my favorite, it did turn out to be pretty good It is a short book so it didn t take long to finish at all The fun factor doesn t hurt either so that makes it a quicker read.There is an unexpected plot twist towards the end which makes it an even interesting read There is my [...]

    7. A nuanced, beautiful retelling of the classic fairytale through the eyes of a teenager going through a fundamental shift in her life The Beauty character is unexpectedly quirky, the Beast as multi layered and complex as you would imagine, but best of all is Megan s story and how she changes through the events It s a delight, and if anything it felt way too short
