Once Upon a Tower(Fairy Tales #5) by Eloisa James

Image    Gowan meets Edith at a ball given by her father and instantly knows this is his future duchess, so he asks her father for her hand. Edith cleverly decides to let him know what she expects in their marriage, by writing him a letter. From there this thrill of a romance sets off.

I can not remember a time that I have ever been disappointed with a book that I have read by Eloisa James, and this is no exception.

The fifth book in the Fairy Tales series is even better than the last. Eloisa does a masterful job of incorporating the fairytale into the story without making that the sole thing that we are focusing on. What I mean was not focused on seeing the similarities between this and Rapunzel, because they were obvious. The thing is though even though there is similarities this story is uniquely different from anything I have ever read that my have been adapted from that particular fairytale.

Also it had strong elements of Romeo and Juliet, incorporated with the elements of Rapunzel. Those elements combined with Eloisa’s wonderful writing had me spellbound.

I love to read a romance where I am smiling because of the witticism of the writing(there were many laugh out loud moments) and on top of that the chemistry between the characters. It was all just amazing.

There is so much I would like to say, because it is so much more than what I expected, but I would be giving the story away. I definitely don’t want to spoil this for anyone.

I will just say that you can’t go wrong by reading this or any others from Eloisa James.
