NOT JUST MAKE BELIEVE
Desert Breeze Publishing
Rating: 4 Cups
Andrea Petercheff works at the Stansbury Hotel in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Maxwell Gildenthall is a stockbroker with a past that torments him.
Piper Hamilton is an eight year-old girl who needs some guidance. Her ‘Uncle Max’ always passes her off to nannies and caretakers while he is away meeting with clients. When Andrea gets the job of watching over Piper, she never expects to find her heart has been taken over by a little girl in need of some love. As they become friends, her time is divided between ducking fireworks thrown by a certain young girl and heated looks sent her way by a man who keeps denying himself the one thing they all desperately need--love.
Not Just Make Believe is both a heart warming and funny story full of sass. Sandra Sookoo gives us characters that we cannot help but relate to in this backwards and yet very comedic fairytale. While Andrea does not believe full-figure women like herself can get the prince, Max goes out of his way to prove to her how wrong she is. Throw in a girl who is a mix of Pippi Longstocking, Dennis the Menace, and Pollyanna, and you to will fall in love with this funny tale.
