Everyone, please ooh and aah at this gorgeousness:
(If you pre-ordered the full set, I just got the proof for the print version and should be sending it out within a few weeks.)
For those of you unfamiliar with The Lady and the Frog, here’s what it is about:
Welcome to Pippington, where motorcars bump down old city lanes, frogs transform into men, and mermaids just might be real.
Evelyn Havish is through waiting for Henry Kingston to look up from his ledgers and propose. But, when Henry’s brother Jack is transformed into a frog and trapped in a well, Evelyn must join the rescue. Armed with her training as a lady and a solid punch, Evelyn must outwit a scheming heiress, wrestle an octopus, and kiss far more frogs than a girl should be expected to. As she dives deeper into a hidden world of magic, she discovers Jack may not be the one who needs saving.
What about that new review?
The Lady and the Frog just got one of the most fun and passionate reviews I’ve read from Christine at thefairytalecentral.com. Here’s an excerpt:
What an emotional whirlwind of a ride this novel was. I loved every second of it!
I’ll admit, when I first read the blurb to this book I expected it to be a lighthearted, whimsical read. I mean, a charming little town called Pippington with magical beings hiding within? How cute is that? Well… Ahahahahah. By chapter 2 things were already INTENSE, and I was so emotionally involved I could barely sleep. This book will take your emotions on a ride. And, well, I LOVED IT. LOVED IT LOVED IT LOOOVED IT!!! Yes, I adore lighthearted, whimsical reads. But I’m also always down for a complex, feelsy book. And that’s what this one ended up being. Though there is definitely a bit of whimsy along the way too.
I pretty much loved every single thing about this book. It is highly character driven—the core of the plot is Evelyn and Henry’s romance. AND YET. It is somehow not a romance book. Their romance wasn’t there just because it’s apparently required to have romance in all fiction ever. No, no. The romance was interwoven into the plot so perfectly, the whole book would have never worked without it.
And now for all the books together at last!
