It isn’t easy being the rather overlooked and unhappy youngest sibling to sisters named for the other six days of the week. Sunday’s only comfort is writing stories, although what she writes has a terrible tendency to come true.

When Sunday meets an enchanted frog who asks about her stories, the two become friends. Soon that friendship deepens into something magical. One night Sunday kisses her frog goodbye and leaves, not realizing that her love has transformed him back into Rumbold, the crown prince of Arilland—and a man Sunday’s family despises.

The prince returns to his castle, intent on making Sunday fall in love with him as the man he is, not the frog he was. But Sunday is not so easy to woo. How can she feel such a strange, strong attraction for this prince she barely knows? And what twisted secrets lie hidden in his past—and hers?

Short & Sweet: Mixing together several fairy tales, Enchanted is about a young girl named Sunday who meets a frog and cannot write down anything or it comes true. She is the sixth daughter, all of which are named after days of the week. Little does she know her own fairy tale is beginning as she gives her frog friend a kiss after telling him a story one night. He turns back into the prince he really is after she leaves and searches her out, but does not know how to approach telling her how he knows her as a frog before being a prince. A charming and humorous story, I loved Sunday’s character and the part she plays in the fairy tales that her family is wrapped up in. I listened to this one on audio and would highly recommend that format as it tells the story so well and matches Sunday’s character with the performance.

Final Verdict: A charming and humorous tale, Enchanted is the first in a series about six sisters that I am looking forward to reading more adventures of!
