Royal Wedding By Meg Cabot

Royal Wedding By Meg Cabot

This title will be released on July 2, 2015.

From Meg Cabot, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries series, comes the very first new adult instalment, featuring the now grown-up Princess Mia!

Royal Wedding follows Princess Mia and her Prince Charming as they plan their fairy tale wedding – but 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, what with living in New York City, running her new teen community centre, 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’s 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?

My Thoughts:

I am very grateful to receive an advanced copy of this book from the lovely people at lovereading. Meg Cabot is a new author to me, I chose this book as I am trying to read lots of different authors this year but also I loved the design on the cover, it is vibrant and made me want to read it straight away. I did find this book hard to get into, but a couple of chapters in I was hooked. I loved the way the pages are set out, some pages have text speak on them, other’s have invites aswell, it kind of broke it up a bit and it was a bit of fun. I really enjoyed the story some parts were really funny, I loved the fact that even though she is a Princess, Mia is a down to earth woman, who has problems just like you and I. I look forward to the next book.

French Kisses By Jan Ellis

French Kisses By Jan Ellis

To the outside world, Rachel Thompson has it made: a wealthy husband, a successful career as an artist, and a to-die-for house in the middle of rural France.

That is until her husband Michael hits 40, discovers his inner love-rat and runs off with the kids’ young, skinny dance teacher.

Determined to ignore her friends’ advice to up-sticks and move back to England with her children, Rachel decides to turn their crumbly stone farmhouse into a bijou hotel.

As Rachel strives to create a new life for herself, friends and family rally around to give her a Christmas and New Year with plenty of surprises.

With help – and some hindrance – from her loved ones, Rachel transforms their home into a cosy guest house for an eclectic collection of visitors, including Josh Perry, a handsome American academic.

Although Rachel is getting plenty of attention from local admirers, her husband Michael is never far away…

Will Rachel and Michael rekindle their love affair?

Or will she be sharing French Kisses with someone else this Christmas…?

My Thoughts:

I was given this book for an honest review. I can honestly say this was a brilliant book by a lovely author. It has taken me a while to read but it is only because I didn’t want it to end. This is only Jan’s second novel which I couldn’t believe. Her first novel is called An Unexpected Affair, so I will definitely be picking that one up. The characters are full of humour and the plot I thought was brilliant. This book is set in rural France and Jan has written about it beautifully so much so I felt like I was there (If only). Such a fantastic read, look forward to reading more of Jan’s books.
