Hopeless romantic Milly Rose has had her fair share of heartbreak. Obsessed with all things Disney, she refuses to give up on finding her Prince Charming – he’s out there somewhere, isn’t he?

When Milly is given a job to investigate the origins of a historical building in the village of Clover’s Rest, she’s not sure what to expect. What she discovers takes her breath away – a beautiful real life Cinderella castle, complete with turrets, a magnificent drawbridge AND a very handsome owner…Cameron Heartstone.

As Milly and Cameron begin to unearth the secrets of Clover Castle, they can’t ignore the intense chemistry building between them. But they’ve both been hurt badly before. Can they take a big leap of faith and find their own happily-ever-after?

I’d like to thank the publishers, author and netgalley for an arc in return for an honest review.

Can you remember the emotions you felt while watching a Disney movie?  The heartwarming friendships, the despicable villain, the funny adventures, the wonderful ‘aww’ moment at the end.  Holly Martin has managed to replicate these feelings and more in this delightful romance, Fairytale Beginnings.

Milly works for Castle Heritage as a historian visiting rundown historical properties whose owners are looking for financial assistance to help maintain their properties.  Milly isn’t your typical historial, firstly she has pink tipped blonde hair, loves dresses and sparkly converse shoes (which I think I need!).  She brings a touch of sparkle and vitality to the company.  She is given the task to visit the new owner of Clover Castle.  Her first impressions of the beautiful turreted castle make her gasp at its Disney-esque beauty.  However, the sight of the new owner, Cameron Heartstone, a sexy rugged mysterious man bring out other emotions in Milly.  A mutual sexual sparkle between Milly and Cameron is evident pretty soon from their first meeting however, they are both reluctant to pursue a relationship due to heartbreak in the past.

I loved the description of this unique castle and it’s history; it had some very colourful and charismatic previous owners.  Milly and Cameron have some fun delving into Clover Castle’s heritage.  However, someone from the past and present causes chaos for the pair.

This was a delightful story that had some wonderful magical qualities to it, I love abit of make believe … but is it really make believe?!  At the end of the novel I felt myself ‘sighing’ with adoration at this charming, magical, sexy story.  5/5*
