First, the cover . . . I love it! Maybe it’s because I love dogs, but I think the beautifully dressed princess and gorgeous hound make a striking pair.
I enjoyed this book. I was frustrated with the mystery for the first half. I’m just impatient and want to know if my hunches are correct. The first few chapters were also slow for me since they told the story of the prince from the age of 3 to 17. Showing the prince’s background really did add to the story though. It helped me know where Prince George was coming from and why he made some of his decisions.
The characters were flawed which made them likeable. I was rooting for them and hoping they would find their way to a happy ending. This book is full of magic, insecurity, heart-ache, triumph, and love. I look forward to reading the next 2 books in this series.
