From the creator of NBC’s hit series, GRIMM, author Stephen Carpenter presents the third in his bestselling GRIMM CURSE series – Snow White.
Jake Grimm—now 18—has fallen in love with the beautiful heiress Becca Lancaster. Becca is the loveliest young woman in Woodland—the fairest of all—and the envy of her father’s new spouse.
Jake realizes too late that there is a new twist in the old tale of the jealous stepmother. A plot for Becca’s grisly murder is underway…but love has clouded Jake’s judgment.
Jealousy, vanity, and murder remain the themes from the classic tale, but this re-telling of Snow White presents them with shocking new twists for the modern age.

It was not as good as the first book. I like Carpenter's writing skills and how he tells a story but I was disappointed that he had to make the story sexual in nature. I long for good stories without sex.
Take one of the most beloved fairy tales in the English language, add it to one of my favorite TV shows of the last several seasons and you get....a huge disappointment. This could have been fun. It could have been scary. It could have been entertaining. Instead it was predictable, flat and frankly, stupid. Using her cell-phone as the mirror? It texts her that she is the fairest? Give me a break! The take on the Evil queen felt like a sad, pathetic bid to be "relevant." The writing was insipid. Everything about this book screamed, "Let's make a buck while the show is still popular." So disappointing. If anything about the book could have had a spark of what makes the TV show good, I would have been a big fan. The only thing I enjoyed about it was that it only took me an hour to read it.
This one didn't grab me as much as the first two novellas, but it was still really good. I don't think that a father who considers his little girl a princess would insist that his young daughter share a room with her boyfriend, but maybe I'm more out of touch than I thought I was.
