In this modern version of the fairy tale classic, recently orphaned Mae finds herself taking care of her ill grandmother and trying to negotiate the big, wide world of New York. Aside from Griff, a drifter she's befriended on the long walk to her grandmother's, she is alone, a frightened country mouse in the big city. Mae can't believe her good fortune when she meets Lionel Tryst, a charming and charismatic real estate agent, who arranges the miraculous sale of her grandmother's expensive apartment, in the horrible buyer's market of the Great Depression, so they can both move out of the city. But is Mae's luck too good to be true - or is there a big bad wolf lurking in the shadows?
These Modern Wicked Fairy Tales are brilliant. They take old fairy tales, set them in modern times (in this case, it's the 1920s during the Great Depression) and it's fun to see threads of the original tale weave their way through the story! This one is part historical, part thriller, and all HOT HOT romance! The villain in this one is truly evil (definitely a wolf!) and when Granny is in trouble (Red too!) their rescue comes just in time! Loved this little story - fun and SEXY listen!
