    This book contained 2 stories of retellings about Cinderella and Beauty & the Beast which is why I enjoyed this book very much!! I loved the way both stories were told. The plot, settings and characters all made for both stories enjoyable to read. Can't wait to read more by Debbie in the future!!

For today's readers the heroines might not be as strong as one would like, and the hero's a bit too strong, but still a clever re-telling and re-imagining of these classic fairy tales. Cinderella is Cindy and she cleans a big office building, sneaking into the company Christmas party on a tossed out invitation. She hides her secret all the while falling for the man who's office she cleans at night after hours. Cute story, and cute coming together. Beauty and the Beast is the kind, and beautiful daughter of a shipping conglomerate that is slowly tanking. She is whisked away to his tropical island as part of a bargain not to sink the conglomerate that is slowly been driven to ruin by the Beast. Gradually they open to each other, he softens to her kindness, and she sees another side of him as they get to know each other. She opens his eyes to kindness for others, and for himself. Both strong characters, she was in particular to have worked into his heart. Definitely old school, but still a lovely read. I always love genuine, honest hearts, the Beast's was definitely hurting and needing some genuine kindness in his life.

    Fairy Tale Weddings contains two previously published Debbie Macomber novels: Cindy and the Prince (1987), a modern version of the story of Cinderella, and Some Kind of Wonderful (1988), a modern version of the story of Beauty and the Beast. Both were happy, joyful reads for the holiday season that affirmed the miracles of the old fairy tales. Cindy and the Prince is the story of Cindy Territo, a computer programming student by day and maid by night for the offices of Oakes-Jenning Financial Ser Fairy Tale Weddings contains two previously published Debbie Macomber novels: Cindy and the Prince (1987), a modern version of the story of Cinderella, and Some Kind of Wonderful (1988), a modern version of the story of Beauty and the Beast. Both were happy, joyful reads for the holiday season that affirmed the miracles of the old fairy tales. Cindy and the Prince is the story of Cindy Territo, a computer programming student by day and maid by night for the offices of Oakes-Jenning Financial Services. Cindy and fellow maid Vanessa find an invitation to the company Christmas ball. Nightly Cindy cleans the office of the handsome, young first vice president Thorndike Prince. With the discarded invitation, she has the opportunity to be Cinderella for a night. Predictable, but heartwarming story of how Cindy ends up with her Prince. Some Kind of Wonderful is the story of Judy Lovin, whose father Charles Lovin refers to as Beauty. Charles' shipping business is being threatened with hostile takeover by John McFarland, a wealthy entrepreneur who Lovin refers to as the Beast. McFarland, who lives on a privately owned Caribbean island, says that he will call in the loan keeping the Lovin business afloat unless Charles sends his daughter Judy to McFarland's island for an indeterminate time. It is a test of sorts to see if Lovin loves his daughter or his business more. Charles refuses, but Judy hears of the deal, and accepts to save her family's business. Judy slowly melts the icy heart of the Beast. Eventually she is allowed to leave the island only to voluntarily return. I thought that Some Kind of Wonderful was the stronger of the two stories and the reason I rated this book four stars. Definitely a holiday keeper.

    I enjoyed both of these stories. The first was a modern take on Cinderella. I thought it was an interesting take. I never imagined Prince Charming would be so grumpy. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the story. The second story was a modern take of Beauty and the Beast. I was curious how the author was going to create a beast and was glad for the absence of magic and that the beast wasn't physically a beast, but just cruel and heartless man. A beast in every sense of the word, except in appearance. Not t I enjoyed both of these stories. The first was a modern take on Cinderella. I thought it was an interesting take.

    I enjoy Debbie Macomber's work. This particular volume reinvents two traditional fairy tales: Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast. Both have slightly simplistic approaches to the problems each protagonist faces. There were times, especially in "Some Kind of Wonderful" that I wondered if the plot could actually happen. Yet, those are attributes of fairy tales. There are real problems and people behaving badly, but in the end truth and good win. I enjoy Debbie Macomber's work.

    Nice updated version of two classic tales (Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast) where the women are not quite the stereotype. The Prince in "Cindy and the Prince" was a lot more likeable than the "Beast in Some Kind of Wonderful"; but then I guess that was the point. Lots of kissing but that's as far as it went. Reprints of Macomber's early efforts, these are a fluffy, fun read. Nice updated version of two classic tales (Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast) where the women are not quite the stereotype.

    Two more relaxing reads by Debbie Macomber. I love reading these when I don't have anything else to do. Cindy and the Prince is a take-off of Cinderella and Some Kind of Wonderful is a take-off from Beauty and the Beast. Both are fanciful, beautiful stories ... wonderful for a night when you can't sleep. Two more relaxing reads by Debbie Macomber. I love reading these when I don't have anything else to do.

    two amusing updates of two classic fairy tales. I enjoyed Cindy and the Prince, the Cinderella update more than the updated version of Beauty and the beast.

    So I have begun reading several of Debbie's books and I have to say, this is my favorite one so far! I also have to applaud her for writing passion without perversion. It is so hard to find a romance author who can write a wonderful story and portray the passion and romance that two people can feel without have to make it perverted, degenerate or debauched. These two rewritten modern day versions of Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast are fun, enchanting and a great way to restore our belief in So I have begun reading several of Debbie's books and I have to say, this is my favorite one so far!

    This one of Debbie Macomber's books is a little different, in that they are new versions of fairy tales..kind of. I liked them a lot, as I usually do anything she writes. It was a quick read, that I loved. The second story in the book was a bit harder to just loose myself in, as I just don't like the premice of a woman sacrificing herself for her family to a beast of a man. It just seemed off. But I let myself fall into the story and ended up enjoying it. This one of Debbie Macomber's books is a little different, in that they are new versions of fairy tales..kind of.

    These were 2 of Debbie Macomber’s early stories, Cindy and the Prince and Some Kind of Wonderful. Both were loosely based on fairy tales. It’s interesting how many of Debbie’s male characters are pretty angry men. What I like about Debbie’s heroines is that they are strong women who have great and loving hearts. If you want to enjoy a romantic, nice and sweet story, these two are for you.

    Highly disappointed. Story jumps time at crucial areas, segmented writing where it does not flow as easy as I am used to. I almost did not read SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL after reading CINDY AND THE PRINCE but I found SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL way better. Would have given it one star for CINDY but will give it two for SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL. This author is off my reading list.

    Predictable and super cheesy. Every once in awhile I like sappy romances but I didn't really care of either stories. The main characters annoyed me. Predictable and super cheesy.

    A retelling of two fairy tales. Though I liked the first (Cinderella), the second (Beauty and the Beast) wasn't my cup of tea. It might be that these aren't my type of books anymore.

    While the writing is incredibly engaging, both stories seemed to happen too quickly. I understand these are modernized fairy tales, but it's still too convenient.
