Enjoy when a beloved classic tale is retold?
A Twist in the Tail Thursdays features all this and more!


Hi Bookworms! It's been a hot second since we last did a cover reveal post, hasn't it? There have been SO MANY fantastic covers released recently for the upcoming Winter 2020 season, too. I've been trying to feature some of them during Can't Wait Wednesday, but there are just so many! And so, it is absolutely perfect that a fairy tale inspired cover dropped yesterday, and today is A Twist in the Tail Thursday. Two for the price of one!

Earlier this year, I heard that Sandhya Menon was working on a new fairy tale-inspired contemporary series and I got really excited. You guys know I'm not a huge contemporary reader, but I love all of her books: WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, FROM TWINKLE WITH LOVE, and THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT SWEETIE. This year's release, ...SWEETIE, is my personal favorite of the bunch -- it only came out this past May, and I'm already itching for a re-read! When authors I love meet fairy tales? It is like the book was tailor-made for me. ESPECIALLY when it's one of my favorite tales --and in this case, it's my beloved Beauty and the Beast!

Are you ready for a cover and a summary? I need more people to be as excited about this book as I am!

Will the princess save the beast? For Princess Jaya Rao, nothing is more important than family. When the loathsome Emerson clan steps up their centuries-old feud to target Jaya’s little sister, nothing will keep Jaya from exacting her revenge. Then Jaya finds out she’ll be attending the same elite boarding school as Grey Emerson, and it feels like the opportunity of a lifetime. She knows what she must do: Make Grey fall in love with her and break his heart. But much to Jaya’s annoyance, Grey’s brooding demeanor and lupine blue eyes have drawn her in. There’s simply no way she and her sworn enemy could find their fairy-tale ending…right?

His Lordship Grey Emerson is a misanthrope. Thanks to an ancient curse by a Rao matriarch, Grey knows he’s doomed once he turns eighteen. Sequestered away in the mountains at St. Rosetta’s International Academy, he’s lived an isolated existence—until Jaya Rao bursts into his life, but he can't shake the feeling that she’s hiding something. Something that might just have to do with the rose-shaped ruby pendant around her neck…

As the stars conspire to keep them apart, Jaya and Grey grapple with questions of love, loyalty, and whether it’s possible to write your own happy ending.
