Michelle doesn't believe in fairy tales. She's a hard-headed businesswoman, making a fresh start in a new town. And when she decides to take over a neglected book shop, she knows the perfect manager. For book-loving Anna, it's a dream come true--and not just because it gives her an escape from her three demanding step-children and their adorable but hyperactive Dalmatian. Although she's been thinking that her own fairytale ending hasn't really turned out the way she hoped, Anna's passion for the classics is transforming the shop. The customers, and even Michelle, are falling under the spell of the magical stories of romance, adventure, and lost dogs. But when secrets from her past threaten Michelle's new beginnings, and trouble strikes at the heart of Anna's household, can the wisdom and courage of the stories in the bookshop help the two friends--and those they love--find their happy ever after?
