What a wonderful way to start the week! It is with great pleasure to have Cindy C Bennett, an incredible friend and an even more incredible author stopping by during the virtual tour for her newest release titled Rapunzel Untangled.
A Girl Trapped in a Mansion
A Mysterious Old Woman
The Boy Who Will Change Everything.
From someone’s perspective who–growing up–didn’t read the original story (never heard about it until I moved to the US) I was fascinated with Cindy’s take on it. Of course, after reading Cindy’s version I had to read the original and, without a doubt Cindy’s is my favorite version. It has wit, emotions galore and likable characters in the beginning and lovable ones at the end, not to mention a hint of … darkness.
If Innocence was to be embodied by someone–that’s Rapunzel. As for Evil Rapunzel’s mother outsmarts it by a mile. I found myself rooting for poor Rapunzel, wanting somehow to reach inside the book and rescue her from her mother’s twisted ploy. I won’t lie, that woman asked many times for a punch straight in the face–that’s how well developed the story’s villan is. Thank goodness for Fane this sweet, fun (and very popular) kid whose curiosity pushes him to look beyond the facade of Facebook and want to know and meet Rapunzel. Little does he know what he was about to unravel beats anyone’s imagination.
Without a doubt this clean YA novel deserves 5 stars in my books and a place of honor on my favorite-books-of-all-times shelf.
Now to the fun part. As part of her tour Cindy provides us with a copy of her new novel. For your chance to win it all you have to do is click here.
About the Author
Cindy C Bennett was born and raised in beautiful Salt Lake City, growing up in the shadows of the majestic Rocky Mountains. She and her husband – who happens to be her high-school sweetheart – raised two sons and two daughters. She’s now blessed with two daughters-in-law as well. She developed a love of writing in high school when a teacher introduced her to the joys of escaping reality for ten minutes each day in writing.
When she’s not writing, reading, or answering emails (notice there’s no mention of cleaning, cooking, or anything remotely domestic), she can often be found riding her Harley through the beautiful canyons near her home. (Yes, she rides a Harley.)
