The Stepsister Scheme (PRINCESS NOVELS) - Jim C. Hines Danielle (known to balladeers as Cinderella) is just settling into her role as a princess when her husband is kidnapped. She, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty go on a quest to get him back.

Much of the fairy tale stuff felt a bit too familiar (Cinderella unsure of herself as a princess instead of a servant; Sleeping Beauty being woken with labor pains instead of a kiss, etc), but Hines clearly really enjoys fairy tales, and his interest in the story carried me forward. I think my favorite part of this story was the descriptions of the fairies and their lands.
