The Wicked Sister by Virginia Barlow

 Book Description:

With her stepfather's sudden death, Lady Anastasia Covington goes from living a privileged lifestyle to selling vegetables in the village marketplace in the blink of an eye. Alone and at the mercy of her nefarious stepsister, she yearns for love and acceptance.

Disguised as a simple soldier, Prince Percival catches a dark-haired emerald-eyed beauty in his arms. He is bewitched. The more he sees her, the more intrigued he is by her contradictions. Forced to keep his identity a secret, he must somehow convince Lady Anastasia he is the right man for her.

But time is running out. Lady Anastasia's mother is determined to find a proper suitor and see her wed -and someone wants her dead.

My Thoughts:

I didn't realize when I got this book that it was a Cinderella retelling, but it is a good one.  I enjoyed the hidden identities and twists and turns that come along in this story.  I really liked Prince Percival, though that isn't who he is when we meet him.

I felt bad for Lady Anastasia and her family being thrown into a harder life than they were used to.  It wasn't as hard of a life as most, but still hard for them.  The author does a good job with the characters and the twists and turns that are thrown in there.  Overall, I really enjoyed it and will look for more from this author.
