Princes have pomp and glory—not murdered secretaries and crushes on commoners
Nothing gets London’s high society’s tongues wagging like a good scandal. And when the personal secretary of the visiting Prince Sebastian of Alucia is found murdered, it’s all anyone can talk about, including Eliza Tricklebank. Her unapologetic gossip gazette has benefitted from an anonymous tip about the crime, prompting Sebastian to take an interest in playing detective—and an even greater one in Eliza.
With a trade deal on the line and mounting pressure to secure a noble bride, there’s nothing more salacious than a prince dallying with a commoner. Sebastian finds Eliza’s contrary manner as frustrating as it is seductive, but they’ll have to work together if they’re going to catch the culprit. And when things heat up behind closed doors, it’s the prince who’ll have to decide what comes first—his country or his heart.
Julia London is a NYT, USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestselling author of historical and contemporary romance. She is a six-time finalist for the RITA Award of excellence in romantic fiction, and the recipient of RT Bookclub’s Best Historical Novel.
My Review of The Princess Plan by Julia London
I’ve been branching out recently and incorporating more women’s lit and romance into my repertoire, and The Princess Plan was the perfect choice! I’d just got done reading some heavy fantasy books and this was the perfect cheery palate cleanser for me.
I absolutely love the setting in England where women still aren’t equal to men, not that it stops Eliza from demanding equal treatment. Eliza is the perfect female protagonist, full of spunk and life, determined to live her life the way that makes her happy regardless of how society or others think she should behave. Prince Sebastian is as handsome as a fictional character can get and definitely not a flat character at all, especially with the abyss of his green eyes. I enjoyed the mischief that Caro, Eliza and Hollis got up to, especially the humor they provided along the way. The plot line moved along well, and the character development was just perfect.
A great twist on mystery and Romance, and an enjoyable book for anyone who needs a laugh and a happy heart at the end of the day! I will definitely recommend this to many of my friends, even if they try to tell me Romance isn’t their thing. This is a book that is worthy of a reread for sure.
Thank you all for checking in for my stop on the Harelquin Winter 2020 Blog Tour for The Princess Plan by Julian London. Stay tuned for upcoming tours and of course my usual bookish shennanigans!
