*This review contains spoilers*

Goodreads Description

In this modern-day fairytale, Evie is on a path to figure out who her mom really was, while discovering for herself what the future will hold. Charged with her late mother’s letters, Evie embarks on a quest into her past. The first item on the list is to attend Oxford, her mom’s alma-mater. There, Evie stumbles upon a real life prince charming, Edmund Stuart the second Prince of England, who is all too happy to be the counterpart to her damsel in distress.

My Review:

Well this was really swoon worthy. A wonderfully romantic read, I read this all in one sitting (on a 5+ hr. plane ride) and it was worth it. I believe this is Albright’s debut novel and it is a great one! She writes the character’s beautifully and I absolutely adored Evie. Evie is a strong character who knows what she wants and will not be pushed around. I enjoyed the character development and the writing was simple, but it flowed well.

The only thing that I felt was a drawback was the ending. Albright does a really good job at prolonging their eventual romance and building suspense, and I really enjoyed that. The romance felt real and honest, but I felt the ending was really rushed and thrown together. After all that time, the last few pages felt like an injustice to their romance and relationship. Other than that, I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. It is a pretty clean read.

4/5 stars.
