REVIEW: A Scandal Made at Midnight by Kate Hewitt

Posted July 18th, 2022 by in Blog, Harlequin Mills&Boon, Presents, Review / 0 comments

A Scandal Made at Midnight by Kate Hewitt is a beautiful recreation of Cinderella with a twist. What if the Prince wasn’t meant to choose Cinderella? What if his happy ever after lay with one of Cinderella’s sisters?

Liane is the sister with her head screwed on right. She’s a teacher and happy with her lot. She loves her little step-sister Ella endlessly and isn’t one bit jealous that Ella is the shining light where ever she lands. It’s not until Alessandro steps on Liane’s feet at the ball that her curiosity is piqued. Even though Alessandro’s mind is mostly stuck on solving his latest problem he’s also curious about Liane. Who is this wallflower who looks out of place in her old fashioned attire?

Recruiting Ella as his social media consultant to brighten up his stuffy hotels; Ella railroads Liane into accompanying her around the world to attend the parties planned to relaunch Alessandro’s hotels. During their adventures Ella spins a wonderfully creative, artful and curious tale on her social networks. In the background Alessandro and Liane grow closer and throwing caution to the wind, Liane agrees to a sizzling fling.

A delicious slow burn tale with lots of adventure and fairy tale elements. The family features heavy and I though Kate Hewitt did a fantastic job at recreating an alternate Cinderella universe. I really, really enjoyed A Scandal Made at Midnight and almost wonder if Ella should have her own happy ever after as well.
