Belle of the Ball by Pam McCutcheon

This is the 1st book of the series. The 3 sisters are on a group outing with their suitors. They leave the men to go make a wish at a statue their mother made a wish at years ago. Before they make their wishes, they overhear the gentlemen make some mean comments about them. They also learn that their mother paid them to take her daughters out. In anger, each girl makes a wish based on what the gentlemen said was wrong with each of them instead of the wishes in their hearts. The wishes they made out loud corresponded with the statue of the 3 Graces (minor Greek Goddesses) whom they were named after (beauty, charm and grace). The 3 Graces heard the wishes and decided to grant them one girl at a time. Which wish will they grant each girl, the spoken or unspoken wish?

This book tells about Belle's wish. Her spoken wish was for beauty. Thus her journey has begun. This story is a fun story of a girl who was hurt by the man she liked. She set out on a path of revenge. This poor had no idea what she was about to get herself into.

I really loved this story. I loved how the 3 Graces intervened in her life. Did Belle get her wish and which one? I will let you read the story and find out. You will definitely be surprised at how it turns out. As for me, I think I will be looking for book 2 soon.

My Rating: 
5 out of 5 stars
