Fifteen years and nine states apart, Stephanie Greenhalgh and Jennifer Paquette met at a mutual family party over a bag of tortilla scoopers and homemade bean dip. Besides a spooky amount of things in common, they also realized their overflowing creativity complemented each other and within mere months their vault of stories began to grow.   If The Silver Slipper Fits is the first sneak peak into the 2Muses vault, and is the first in The Precious Gems series, where a pair of shoes can be either very naughty or very nice.

If The Silver Slipper Fits…

Two feisty witches. 

Two wickedly impossible dilemmas. 

Two modern day realms infused with a little mischievous magic. 

One pair of totally awesome and very sassy shoes.

If The Silver Slipper Fits begins with a story about Glinda, a teenage witch, who, like any other teenager in the modern world, is envious of another woman’s pair of shoes.  However, these shoes belong to her sister.  After stealing the shoes for her hot date, she trips on a crack in the Yellow Brick Road, falls through a portal and lands smack in the middle of New York City.  Of course, she lost her grip on the shoes when she fell and now Glinda not only has to find her sister’s Silver Slippers in a city of 8 million people, but she has to find another portal to get herself back home in time for her date.  Unfortunately, a subway train full of degenerates, a Naked Cowboy and herd of anorexic fashion models stand in her way.  And to top it all off, the shoes change their look as the owner’s personality changes.

The second story takes place many years later, and centers around Glinda’s youngest daughter Giselle, who already has way too much baggage for a normal teenager.  She has been banished to Las Vegas because she set a science lab on fire, and to make matters worse, she supposedly is the recipient of a Goblin Curse.  To top off her really crummy year in exile, a Blood Moon shows up at the wrong time, making her powers go out of control.  She steals her Aunt’s Silver Slippers (sound familiar?) and suddenly her luck, and the shoes, begins to change…for the worse.  Can Giselle’s Lightning Power save the ones she loves most?  Or is it really all just about the shoes?

A Jewel of a Story, January 10, 2014
I enjoyed this story so very much and had trouble putting it down. It has a fascinating cast of magical and real characters experiencing two different worlds, including ours in two cities: Manhattan and Las Vegas. The language is darkly and lightly humorous as well as colloquial as we know it. It is action-packed, moves quickly, charmingly, deadly, hilariously and wisely. These two muses [the authors] have done a great job. By the way, there is a nice little reference before the ending of “Diamonds”, this first book, as to which jewel will come out of the jewelbox next, in the second book of what appears to be a jewel of a series.
