Cinderella's Shoes by Shonna Slayton

The war may be over, but Kate Allen’s life is still in upheaval. Not only has she discovered that Cinderella was real, but now she's been made Keeper of the Wardrobe, her sole responsibility to protect Cinderella’s magical dresses from the greed of the evil stepsisters’ modern descendants.

But Cinderella’s dresses are just the beginning. It turns out that the priceless glass slippers might actually exist, too, and they could hold the power to reunite lost loved ones like her father—missing in action since World War II ended. As Kate and her boyfriend, Johnny, embark on an adventure from New York to Italy and Poland in search of the mysterious slippers, they will be tested in ways they never imagined.
Because when you harness Cinderella's magic, danger and evil are sure to follow...

Cinderella's Shoes by Shonna Slayton was cute. I loved Cinderella's Dress a lot more but this was a cute follow up to the first book. World War II is over. It has been over for a few years but Kate's father never returned home. He has been declared missing in action. Kate won't give up on her father. She believes that he is still alive. 

This follow up to Cinderella's Dress follows Kate as she grows into an amazing woman. Kate really wants to find out more about her heritage. She researches a lot about the Polish Cinderella. I really enjoyed these books because as much as they mention Cinderella, they story is not consumed with Cinderella's dress or shoes. Instead we get to see the real day to day life of Kate. This is what I really liked. 

I think Slayton did a great job with the writing and the research of this book. It definitely created a fun and interesting read. If you want a fun very sweet read definitely check out this book. I really enjoyed it.
