This is the third book in the series Maggie and Carson are the main characters. It’s an interesting example of fairy tale love. There is drama, strife and a couple rescues, but best of all love. Carson is the hero, and love interest. Maggie is the damsel and broken hearted widow of Carson’s best friend Sean. Although rocky at first the story smooth’s out and became the fairytale. Although not really a play on Red Riding Hood like it implies it’s a good fast read and I would definitely recommend it. It absolutely can be read as a stand alone.
