Review: The Daughters Grim by Minda Webber


When Grimm sisters Greta and the beautiful, but extremely vain Rae, fail to find husbands in eighteenth-century Cornwall, Greta writes to her aunt in Prussia for help. Aunt Vivian delights in being able to be the one who finds suitable husbands for the girls and sends for them so that she can debut them in Prussian society. But Vivian isn’t doing it to help the girls; she’s merely doing it to irritate her sister by proving that the girls can easily find husbands with the right guidance.

In the middle of searching for the perfect husband Greta is drawn to the Black Forest to search out answers to all the paranormal oddities happening lately. There she hopes to find proof that vampires, witches, werewolves and other creatures of the night really do exist. When Rae meets a widowed Baron and Greta meets a handsome Prince you have to wonder if it’ll be happily ever after or did the girls get themselves into a hairy situation?

I thought the book was cute and I loved all the pop culture references mixed with historical characters. The plot seemed to drag on just a little too much but I like how the story ended. I would recommend this book to paranormal romance readers like fans of MaryJanice Davidson’s Queen Betsy series.
