An attorney who owns a private practice with her childhood best friend Will, Julianne finds herself playing the princess in If the Shoe Fits: A Contemporary Fairy Tale from author Sandra Bricker. One day while on her way to court, Julianne runs right into Prince Charming. But when she looks again, all she finds is that the Prince's toolbox has fallen off the back of his truck, and a work boot along with it. What better way for God to grab the attention of a Cinderella-in-training than to leave her with a shoe waiting to be reunited with its owner? Julianne sets out to track down the mysterious Prince Charming. He's the most gorgeous guy she's ever seen - surely he must be the soul mate that God has prepared her for.
But, Julianne's prince is starting to look less and less charming all the time. No matter how she tries to romanticize him, he just keeps tumbling down off that pedestal. With the Bar Association dinner coming up that will honor her for her outstanding charity work over the year, Julianne wants her friends and colleagues to see her with someone besides Will for once. Little does she know that she's on a collision course with God's perfect plan for her life - if only she could open her eyes and see it.

- Deilghtful Humor! by Nancee on 7/10/2013
Julianne has been waiting for her Prince Charming since her mother read Cinderella to her as a child. On a rainy day a vision of her prince became reality right before her eyes. Julianne took it as a sign from God! The perfect man stopped his truck to rescue an injured dog, and as he sped off his toolbox and a work shoe fell from the back of his pickup. The perfect excuse to locate her prince, Julianne rescued the toolbox and shoe, and placed an ad on Craig's List in the hope that he would call. When Prince Charming doesn't measure up to her list of qualifications Julianne's dreams begin to fade. Julianne and Will, her childhood best friend, had recently opened a law office together. Unbeknownst to Julianne, Will has been in love with her for years, but has never worked up the courage to tell her. He patiently stands by as Julianne chases her dreams, and fears that his chance to reveal his feelings to her will never ensue.
Based on the beloved fairy tale, Cinderella, this romantic fiction contains a lot of wit and humor. The characters are well developed and very likable, at least the majority of them. There are a couple of characters you love to hate. Events throughout the story contain some serious notes and a subtle Christian undertone, and a great dose of delightful humor. Detailed descriptions lead the reader into the story, creating a pictorial view of the settings in this amusing and refreshing tale. Additional relationships and scenarios take place throughout this book that add extra depth to the fairy tale gone wrong.
