From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries series comes the very first adult installment, which follows Princess Mia and her prince charming as they plan their fairy-tale wedding—though a few poisoned apples could turn this happily-ever-after into a royal nightmare
For Princess Mia, the past five years since college graduation have been a whirlwind of activity: living in New York City, running her new teen community center, being madly in love, and attending royal engagements. And speaking of engagements. Mia's gorgeous longtime boyfriend, Michael, managed to clear both their schedules just long enough for an exotic (and very private) Caribbean island interlude where he popped the question! Of course, Mia didn't need to consult her diary to know that her answer was a royal oui.
But now Mia has a scandal of majestic proportions to contend with: her grandmother has leaked "fake" wedding plans to the press that could cause even normally calm Michael to become a runaway groom. Worse, a scheming politico is trying to force Mia's father from the throne, all because of a royal secret that could leave Genovia without a monarch. Can Mia prove to everyone—especially herself—that she's not only ready to wed, but ready to rule as well?
I received this book for free from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I have to admit that I was a little bit disappointed at the start of this book. I was initially super excited to hear that there was going to be a book about Mia Thermopolis getting married! I grew up reading The Princess Diaries series and knowing about this book made me all kinds of excited.
I was disappointed at the start because it seemed like I was reading about a different person. But after awhile, I realized that this was due to the age gap between this book and the previous book. Then, she was 15. Now, she’s 26 and having sex with Michael. Also, she’s getting heat from the press, so it’s quite understandable that she’s changed quite a bit.
But other than that, I had a great time reading this book. For some reason though, it seems like Michael has grown up to be such a hot, sassy stud. Half of the conversations with him are actually quite funny, what with his dry humor and all.
Really, you have to read this, if you grew up with Princess Mia like I did.
