Travels with the Snow Queen, by Kelly Link
Travels with the Snow Queen was nominated for both the Hugo and Nebula awards in 1996 and 1997. It's a heavy irony take on what a woman will do for love, or what she thinks is love, or merely the chance to say her piece. Lots of riffs on fairy tales, and fairy tale endings. Tasty enough, but no new spaces explored, really. I have heard Kelly Link is pretty good, so will keep trying with her. 3 stars for being an award nominee.
