The Cinderella Blues by Obren Bokich

The Cinderella Blues (Thuh Sin'-dur-rel'-uh Bluze)
1. The phenomena whereby otherwise intelligent, capable, successful professional women are convinced they need rescuing by a prince.


The Cinderella Blues is a delightful, witty, modern-day fairytale that, from the first page to the last, had me laughing out loud, sighing, and unable to put it down.

Kat Young has just turned thirty years old and is quite content with her life. She’s a successful woman in a dog-eat-dog business, deep in the heart of Los Angeles. She’s got two great friends, a boyfriend she’s been with for eight years, and she’s just inherited her beloved Aunt Ruth’s house. Kat has it all, or so she thinks. As one thing leads to another, Kat, along with her vivid imagination, wicked baking skills and Aunt Ruth’s guidance from beyond, learns to do more than just follow her dreams; she learns to reach for them, embrace them and enjoy the sometimes crazy ride as she finds happiness - and true love - along the way.

Words cannot express what a charming, romantic, feel good novel this is. Kat isn’t affluent, but her world is so rich and so full that you find yourself wishing it were yours, and her friendships are the kinds we all wish we had. Truthfully, she’s a woman who’s so comfortable with herself that you can’t help but love her!

In writing The Cinderella Blues, Obren Bokich has given us something very special. It's the kind of book you’ll reach for, time and time again, when you’re looking for a heartwarming, uplifting tale. It’s perfect for a day at the beach, a long plane ride, or just sitting at home with your feet propped up and a snack and drink beside you. There’s not a lot of drama, no steamy sexy, just a romantic, come-away-with-a-smile-on-your-face story, and you can't ask for more than that.

My sincerest thanks to West Hills Publishing for providing me with a copy of this wonderful book in exchange for an honest review.   


  1. Great review! I've never heard of the term Cinderella Blues (is it made up for this book?) and it's super cute and funny! And the books looks the same! :)

    1. Thank you, Nikola!

      I don't know if the term is one that's been around, or if the author penned it himself!

    1. I hope you enjoy it! It's really great when you need just an easy, but not stupid, read.
