Excerpt & Giveaway: THE FAIREST OF THEM ALL by Carolyn Turgeon!

Later today, you guys are going to get to hear all about what I thought about Carolyn Turgeon's The Fairest of Them All. But before I get to that, I wanted to share something special with you as part of the blog tour. I was going to do a dream cast, but frankly, I suck at those things, and the only person I could really truly picture was the character of Snow White (and of course, I really just stole the casting from Once Upon a Time, 'cause the girl who plays young Snow is so perfect I can't stand it).

I don't know about you, but when I get a book, I open to the first page to see how it starts - this one grabbed me right off the bat. So much so that I had to share it with you, and just like that, a blog tour post was born.

So instead of a dream cast, I give you what I think is a such a stellar, intriguing opening. Check it out, let me know what you think, and then make sure to enter to win a signed copy of The Fairest of Them All below!
And don't forget to stop back by later today for my review!

Fairytale retelling, 288 pages
Published August 6th 2013 by Touchstone
What if Rapunzel was Snow White’s evil stepmother? From the author of Godmother and Mermaid, The Fairest of Them All explores what happens when fairy tale heroines grow up and don’t live happily ever after.

Living in an enchanted forest, Rapunzel spends her days tending a mystical garden with her adoptive mother, Mathena. A witch, Mathena was banished from court because of her magic powers, though the women from the kingdom still seek her advice and herbal remedies. She waits, biding her time to exact revenge against those who betrayed her.

One day Rapunzel’s beautiful voice and long golden locks captivate a young prince hunting in the forest nearby. Overcome, he climbs her hair up to her chamber and they fall into each other’s arms. But their afternoon of passion is fleeting, and the prince must return to his kingdom, as he is betrothed to another.

Now king, he marries his intended to bring peace to his kingdom. They have a stunning daughter named Snow White. Yet the king is haunted by his memories of Rapunzel, and after the mysterious death of his wife, realizes he is free to marry the woman he never stopped longing for. In hopes of also replacing the mother of his beloved daughter, the king makes Rapunzel his queen.

But when Mathena’s wedding gift of an ancient mirror begins speaking to her, Rapunzel falls under its evil spell, and the king begins to realize that Rapunzel is not the beautiful, kind woman he dreamed of.
