The Courageous Princess book 2. Spoilers ahead for the earlier volume
Mabelrose's father is trying to gather forces for his rescue. Mabelrose is living in the kingdom she rescued. He finally succeeds with some fairy tale charaters -- starting with Puss-In-Boots -- and she is there when it starts to snow, and they realize that worse evils are about.
It involves crossed paths, a prince under a curse who needs a kiss, a fairy godmother's past, a beanstalk, a discovery about families, meetings and more meetings, people who can't help friends, and more.
