Love a good Cinderella story? Then you need to pick up this book. Cindy is a plus sized wonder who loves shoes but has not had it easy since her father died. There is no wicked stepmother in this story. In Fact the Stepmother is pretty awesome. There are a few issues between her and Cindy, but they are made more by Cindy, or by stepmom not wanting to treat her plus sized stepdaughter any differently than her own children. And I love the step sisters. They are true sisters any girl would love to have. But every Cindy needs a prince, and she thinks she finds him on a plane from NYC to LA. Boy is she in for a surprise when she finds this same prince is the new bachelor in a TV Dating show. The same show in which she will be the first ever plus size contestant. This story takes us through the show’s production and after to the consequences. It was a laugh riot. And I am very happy to see that I am not the only person that has said “Moo, Bitch, MOO!” to some person calling me a cow. Loved everything about this book. It’s fluff, but it’s happy-go-lucky fluff.

I have always been kinda meh about Cinderella. However you add fashion plus size bachelor type show (not a fan of the show but loved the Selection) = fun romance clean read. As a Disney brand, it feel wholesome. I appreciated this book so much as a plus size person and someone who thinks somewhat like Cindy it was refreshing. I have read Dumplin' by Murphy but I enjoyed this one so much. While an adult book I think older teens would enjoy too. ( )

I loved this book! It is a retelling of Cinderella with a plus-size heroine and a handsome hero who meet on a cross-country flight and end up on a reality dating show. There's humor and heartbreak. A little bit of everything. I loved the characters--Cindy and Henry. They were perfect together. I kept rooting for them and did not expect the ending but I liked it.

I liked that Cindy was plus-size (would have liked her larger than size 18.) I thought she did well letting the wardrobe people know about their lack of clothing in her size. I loved what she did at Henry's mother's store! I also loved that she would wear her own shoes she designed. They sounded to die for. I really appreciated what she did when she was in the "fight" scene and given a muumuu to wear. Go Cindy!

I liked Anna and Drew, Cindy's step-sisters, who were also on the show. They had her back. Beck and Zeke, members of the crew, also had her back. Irina who was in charge of the wardrobe eventually did also. At least she got her a fabulous gown and shoes for her one-on-one date with Henry.

This was so much fun and I look for more in this series. ( )

Cindy might have lost her mom at a young age, but when her father finally remarried, she loved her new family, both her stepsisters and stepmom, just as much. When her dad died suddenly, they all remained close. Cindy is now a plus-size woman and fashion designer, specializing in her second love: shoes. Her stepmom is a producer of a reality dating show, and by a quirk of fate, all three sisters are tagged to be on it. Cindy is hoping a little media attention as a plus-size contestant, an unusual entry to say the least, would jump-start her career. But when she falls for the suitor, who she had previously encountered on a flight home, career plans are replaced by the hope of landing Prince Charming. But he also has an agenda, and Cindy and her prince may be at cross purposes with each other. This book had me enthralled from the very beginning. It is a delightful tale of a protagonist who is comfortable with her own body, not caring that is it more than a bit larger than the average model. The reality show setting was humorous and entertaining. And though Cindy had to make some life-changing decisions concerning career versus love, this fairy tale does give her her HEA, proving that with a plus-size princess, there is just more for her Prince Charming to love.

A new Julie Murphy book! If The Shoe Fits is the first entry in a new adult series that is "inspired by the classic fairy tale stories we all know and love, perfect for adult readers who crave contemporary, escapist rom-coms." That's me!

Cindy has a stepmother, two stepsisters (but nice ones), loves shoes and fashion. Hmm, getting an idea yet? There are some balls and …. yes a prince of sorts.

All the elements are in place for an absolutely wonderful escapist fairy tale of a read. Murphy puts her own signature style on this tale. Cindy lands on a reality television show called Before Midnight. She's a plus size woman that viewers adore. Cindy's happy to be a positive model for women. But what about the competition for the bachelor's heart and hand? She's not interested - or is she? I loved Murphy's take on the Bachelor premise.

But it is Cindy that will steal your heart - her love of her family, friends and most importantly - herself. The slow building relationship between Cindy and Henry is just right for a rom-com novel, full of lots of yes/no/maybe so's. But what will happen at midnight? Will Cindy find her prince - or follow her heart and find her own dreams?

I love Murphy's writing - she tackles real issues in her novels, always creates a wonderful protagonist and her prose keep me eagerly turning pages. Sad to say I finished this one in a day. More please! ( )
