The Princess Plan (A Royal Wedding, #1)The Princess Plan by Julia London
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a pretty good read for me. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own. What happens when a smart, opinionated woman who cares for her blind father, has some pretty well-placed friends, and a sister who owns a gossip magazine whose focus is the shenanigans of "the ton", and a prince from another country who is forced to look for a wife while in England negotiating a deal that will mean a lot to his country financially all collide? It turns into a pretty interesting story with a murder mystery included.

Prince Sebastian does not want to get married though he knows he is required to marry as another branch of his family is pushing to take over the throne in his country. Eliza sees her life as pretty much well-written at this point and is excited when she gets a chance to go to a masquerade ball where she just might get a chance to meet a prince. Unlike all of the other eligible single women at the ball who hope to be the Prince Sebastian's new princess and future queen, Eliza just wants to meet a prince. When the Prince's secretary is murdered the entire visit is turned on its head as Prince Sebastian tries to solve the mystery that the English police are not that interested in solving, the negotiations continue for the deal that Sebastian is trying to make, and several "titled" women vie for the prince's proposal. The Princess Plan ends up a state of total confusion with some hilarious moments and a sweet romance.
