Conger is a master story teller, and you’ll be absolutely sure you could pick out one of her characters in the street if you bumped into them. I highly recommend Cinderella and the Stripper as an entertaining, heart grabbing, good read.

Cinderella And The Stripper is a delightful, light-hearted mixup between twin brothers and the mystery girl one of them adores. JoEllen Conger has delivered a vivid portrayal of characters so realistic they jump off the pages to entertain you.

A sweet, simple love story between a small Mid-western girl and a California play-boy. Cinderella And The Stripper is more than just a coming of age book but a coming of self. Heather didn’t believe in herself enough to set her sights on a higher, more intellectual, position and still lived under her parent’s roof, but with the help of new friends, a new love and a whole lot of new money, she grew up, she moved out and she became a woman.

What's a gal to do when the man of her dreams appears to be a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? And what's a guy to do when the girl of his dreams disappears like Cinderella after the ball? Well, put this premise into the hands of JoEllen Conger and you have the makings of a delightful comic romp. Don't let the title Cinderella And The Stripper put you off. This is a great romance that Ms Conger writes with humor and flair. Don't miss it!

Cinderella and the Stripper is a sweet old-fashioned romance with an undated, edgy twist. It’s a cozy story with loveable characters that greatly deserve their “happily ever after” ending.
This is a happy, sweet and gentle love story. It is a light-hearted tale of revolving-door mistaken identity with the lovely promise of romance flowing throughout. We know Heather and Chester will find each other but JoEllen Conger helps us thoroughly enjoy the wait as we watch Heather transformed into a successful fashion model who manages to retain her homespun goodness. The misses Conger have spun a fresh new Cinderella story that makes us want our princess and her Prince Charming to live happily ever after. Luckily, we get exactly what we are hoping for.
JoEllen Conger is not one writer, but two—a pair of twins who have shared their special mind-linking abilities since childhood. What one doesn’t think to add to a manuscript or story, the other does. They make quite a team. And as they matured and went their separate ways, writing was the one link that always kept them together. Each twin has her own area of expertise, but enjoying their collaboration efforts, they continue to write fiction in several genres and non-fiction articles and books in various topics.
