Author: Pamela DuMond
Genre: contemporary YA
I received an egalley of this book from the publisher via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
One too-hot Prince. One almost-killer. One sassy American girl. One Lady with a secret. A couple of very cool Ladies-in-Waiting. One very cute lab puppy.
What's not to love?
Yeah, that's right, absolutely nothing.
Lucy's voice was like a breath of fresh air. Her problems at the beginning of the novel are real and very relatable, so it's hilarious to see her go from worrying about paying to mortgage to worrying about what to do when the Grandmother Queen rolls over her foot with her walker. I loved the fact that all of the Ladies stuck by her.
I don't want to give too much away, but she definitely needed it! Her blunders through royal life were hilarious to read about, and a much-needed lighthearted fun.
But rewinding a little, perhaps my favourite part of the entire book was her flight from Chicago to London. Hot guys with blue eyes and black hair are a very soft spot for me, so is it any wonder I fell head over heels for Nick?
The one thing I will say, though, was that the ending felt almost rushed. It would have been nice to see them go back, settle in; find out what was going on with the rest of the family, and then actually get married for real this time. I'm hoping book 2 will explore some of those aspects, as well as David's reaction.
