Review by Veronica

He’s in the doorway, twisting the stem of his champagne glass, and I don’t intend to make conversation, but he referenced Beauty and the Beast. Any man who references Disney films without being prompted is worth making conversation with. 

A Midnight Kiss on Ever After Street makes all of my Disney dreams come true.

Will a kiss at midnight change her life forever?

Sadie Winters has spent her whole life doing as she’s told. But when her overbearing aunt forbids her from going to the farewell ball at the beloved local castle, Sadie has had enough!

One magical makeover, one midnight curfew, and wearing a dress of her own creation, Sadie is unrecognizable as Ever After Street’s shy seamstress.

Sadie might dream of meeting a handsome prince but the only person to cross her path is Witt – the slightly awkward estate agent intending to sell the castle and dash Sadie’s dreams forever.

As the clock strikes midnight, Sadie and Witt share a magical kiss and Sadie knows her heart is in serious danger. Surely Witt must feel the same way…? Sadie can’t hang around to find out.

But as reality dawns the next day, and fate brings Witt to Sadie’s door again, Sadie realises that her mystery estate agent prince has absolutely no idea who she is!

Sadie can’t forget their midnight kiss, but is she brave enough to change her life and find love along the way…?

If you are looking for a pick-me-up book that will leave you with a smile on your face, then I recommend giving this book a try. Jaimie is one of my favourite comfort-read authors. I always know that when I read a book by Jaimie, I will feel like I am being wrapped in a cozy warm blanket of happiness. A Midnight Kiss on Ever After Street is utterly charming and just sucked me in right from the first chapter. The story is wonderful and goes along at the perfect pace. The things that happen in this book often occur purely for romance reasons, but I did not care. I just wanted to go on this journey with Sadie and Witt and watch sparks fly between them. There are so MANY Disney fairy tale references in this book. I couldn’t believe how incredibly clever Jaimie was in all the different ways she included these Disney references. 

Sadie felt like a kindred spirit right from the first moment I met her. I adored the Disney movie references she made throughout the book and loved her positive outlook on life. She is a shy, quirky character with a true heart of gold. Her passion for being a seamstress and making fairytale-like gowns for others leaps from the pages. Also, her love for Ever After Street and the castle that overlooks it leaps from the pages and makes me wish such a place existed so I could go and visit. Sadie is just one of those characters you cannot help but root for; all you want is for her to get her very own HEA. I adored Witt. He is this wonderful mix of sweetness, charm, and dashing good looks. I loved that Witt wasn’t perfect; he struggled to interact with people and was so shy around others. It was cute.

Sadie and Witt are so sweet together. They come together in this charming fairytale-like setting. It felt like Jaimie took the best bits of Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast and mashed them together to make Sadie and Witt’s meet cute. Their relationship has a bit of grumpy sunshine (which is my favourite trope), forced proximity, and a bit of secret identity. All these tropes worked beautifully together to make a very entertaining love story. 

A Midnight Kiss on Ever After Street is a sweet and unforgettable love story that I want to read again and again.

Thank you, Boldwood Books and Rachel Random Resources, for the arc in exchange for an honest review.
