Damsels in Distress by Laura Kenyon

Damsels in Distress - cover midsize

Damsels in Distress, the second book in the Desperately Ever After Series has a darker tone than its prequel. According to Belle, “The world offers nothing but pain…It offers the chance to become half of what you are now. You’re better off going home and keeping your hope and spirit intact. The world is an evil, scary place” (70). If the fairy tale curse is in fact true, it’s no wonder why Belle is wrapped in a melancholy cloak. Should Belle heed Ruby’s warning and return to her beastly husband Donner or should she continue on as an expectant single mother slash inn owner?

Meanwhile Snow White and her husband are under fire for accidentally offering magic brownies to their guests, Penelopea is considering opening up a law practice, Cinderella and her husband are MIA, Rapunzel is in a “real” relationship with Ethan, and Dawn is falling in love with a man who isn’t her husband.

And last but not least, the King of Gossip, Perrin Hildebrand, continues to write witty, raw, and incredibly entertaining gossip columns for The Marestam Mirror. I would love to find out who exactly Perrin Heldebrand is, as it’s a pen name. Is it one of the princesses pretending to be male? Or one of the prince’s? Or is it a character we haven’t met yet?

The ending of Damsels in Distress literally caused my jaw to drop and I’m anxiously waiting for book three!
