The Princess Plan - ARC Review

Princes have pomp and glory—not crushes on commoners.

Nothing gets the tongues of London’s high society 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 benefited from an anonymous tip about the crime, prompting Sebastian to take an interest in playing detective—and an even greater interest 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.

"London’s observations of gender roles are keen, and her protagonists are eminently likable in their dogged pursuit of their own goals despite societal expectations and political pressures." -Publishers Weekly on THE PRINCESS PLAN

Book Breakdown

So, where to begin? Oh yes, I received this title in exchange for an honest review. I read and reviewed this title voluntarily. 

Now, I think the biggest problem with this novel is the page count. It was just too much for the story and because of that it dragged in many places. It took me forever to get through this book for that reason. 

I love the characters and romance! Best part of the story and the only reason I kept reading. They just really saved this for me. 

The writing, sometimes it flowed so perfectly but other times... it confused me? I would have to re-read a part a few times to understand it. To be fair, I've been out of sorts recently and that could be the reason. 

Overall, this is just an average romance. Nothing to write home about but if you like long drawn out romances, this might be for you!
