One feisty shoe-loving fae might be just what this shoe store owner needs to get back on track…if he doesn’t kill the fae first.

Randal Tobit has recently taken over his father’s shoe store, On Your Sole, and is trying to make his father proud after his recent divorce from a woman his dad liked. The job is easy, but only because of the man his father hired and will not give Randal permission to fire under any circumstances.

Casey is helpful and happy, bordering on obnoxiously so. He’s a morning person and he loves shoes, which makes him perfect for the store, but not so much for Randal, who prefers to be barefoot when he can’t wear flip flops.

When the store is vandalized and Casey offers his help, Randal makes a bargain with him—one that he probably would have reconsidered if he’d had any idea what Casey actually was…

My View:

For a short story, this one was cute. I loved the magic and the shoes and the way Casey was full of mischief and life. Randal’s acceptance of Casey’s true nature and their subsequent relationship felt extremely rushed to me but this could easily be explained away by the magical element. If you are looking for short and fun, pick this one up. It is an easy, enjoyable, and light-hearted way to spend a bit of your time.

One thought on “On Your Sole by Caitlin Ricci ~ Book Review by PizzyGirl

  1. Having a great fondness for footwear, I have always loved any variation of the old elf & shoemaker fairy-tale story. This sounds like an adorable, quick and easy read.
