Summary: Sixteen-year-old Daisy Winters is ready for a summer in Florida, working at the local grocery store and fangirling over her favorite book series with her best friend. But when her older sister gets engaged to the Crown Prince of Scotland, Daisy is soon transported across the pond and into the relentless royal spotlight. With the dashing Miles tasked to teach her the royal etiquette and Prince Sebastian stirring up scandal wherever he goes, Daisy may not be turning into the perfect lady. Instead she’s rewriting the royal rule book.
My Rating: 3.5/5 Stars
Blame it on the fact that The Princess Diaries and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement are two of my favorite movies, but I love books about royalty. Rachel Hawkins’ Prince Charming, previously titled Royals, has received so much attention among my fellow bloggers that I knew it was time to pick this one up.
If you’re ever in the mood for a fluffy read, Prince Charming is sure to please! The book follows sixteen-year old Daisy Winter’s summer adventure in Scotland after her sister gets engaged to the Crown Prince of Scotland. Prince Charming was a very quick read for me, having reading it over the course of a day. I think it would be the perfect read for readers who love eating books up in one sitting.
Prince Charming has the perfect blend of everyday girl living in Florida and everyday girl transported to the Highlands. I liked that the book’s first few chapters follow Daisy’s life in Florida before and after her sister, Ellie, drops her royal engagement to Alex. Isabel was a great friend and support for Daisy. I loved their bond for all things bookish and fandom. Daisy’s parents were absolutely hilarious and again acted as the perfect comical support for our main character.
