Published by Pan Macmillan 2015
Paperback edition 400 pages ~Book Depository~
Thank you to the publisher for sending me this ARC via Netgalley for an honest review.
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 NYC, 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 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?
I was thrilled to find out that Cabot was writing another book about Mia, and the last to be precise. I remember reading the book before this one and wanting more and this book definitely delivered when it came to wrapping up the loose ties.
For an adult book it wasn’t quite adult adult if that makes sense? Definitely clean, no cursing or sex. I’m not saying I need this in a book, it’s pretty much told as if kids are in the room but this keeps to the theme of the previous books. The romance is done well as it always is, Mia and Michael are simply adorable and I’ve missed reading a couple’s story- Cabot always gets the humour spot on too!
So as you can guess from the title, this book is all about Mia’s wedding to Michael but it’s not the only news, oh no there are plenty of other things that come into place and Mia being Mia she handles them in her own typical style.
I loved that this book was told in diary form like the previous novels, and this time she’s picked up the writing pen because her doctor recommends for it to help relieve stress that’s causing her eye to twitch…most likely due to her grandmother-cough cough!
A wonderful conclusion to The Princess Diaries series and no doubt I’ll be re-reading them again at some point, they’re brilliant reads.
