I love the books in this ‘series.’ It’s not really a series since the books are by different authors and completely different stories. If you love clean romance and fairytale retellings you’ll love these books! The Diamond Secret was a great read. I loved the time period. This was a retelling of Anastasia set in the time of the Russian civil war. I don’t know a lot about that time, but I always find historical fiction set around war very interesting.
Nadya was one tough heroine. She really was great. Sometimes I sort of like the guy characters more but not this time. I really think Nadya was amazing! She was rough on the outside and sensitive on the inside. She took an amazing journey to discover herself, family, and love. The guys were great too. They had a tough journey for sure.
A quick, entertaining, and romantic read! Check out all the “Once Upon A Time” books below.
