#BookReview: The Princess Plan (A Royal Wedding #1) by Julia London

Synopsis: Princes have pomp and glory—not crushes on commoners.

Nothing gets the tongues of London’s high society wagging like a good scandal. And when the personal secretary of the visiting Prince Sebastian of Alucia is found murdered, it’s all anyone can talk about, including Eliza Tricklebank. 

Her unapologetic gossip gazette has benefited from an anonymous tip about the crime, prompting Sebastian to take an interest in playing detective—and an even greater interest in Eliza.

With a trade deal on the line and mounting pressure to secure a noble bride, there’s nothing more salacious than a prince dallying with a commoner. Sebastian finds Eliza’s contrary manner as frustrating as it is seductive, but they’ll have to work together if they’re going to catch the culprit.

 And when things heat up behind closed doors, it’s the prince who’ll have to decide what comes first—his country or his heart.

This title will be released on November 19, 2019.

My Review: 
The characters and the story in this one seemed to be at odds with each other.  The characters made some very bad choices and well I just kind of gave up with this story about 60% in.  I did finish it but I should have just DNFed it.  

"The hunt for a royal spouse and the hunt for a murderer intertwines in the launch of London's new A Royal Wedding series, which distinguishes itself with captivating characters and a generous draught of dry wit."-Booklist

"London's newest series launch is a charming read... (featuring) an anti-Cinderella who captures the prince not with her beauty but with her precious real self. A fun, touching "prince meets real girl" Victorian fairy-tale romance." -Kirkus

"London's observations of gender roles are keen, and her protagonists are eminently likable in their dogged pursuit of their own goals despite societal expectations and political pressures." -Publishers Weekly

"London's well-honed storytelling skills carry the day." -Publishers Weekly on The Scoundrel and the Debutante

"London's writing bubbles with high emotion as she describes sexual enthusiasm, personal grief and familial warmth. Her blend of playful humor and sincerity imbues her heroines with incredible appeal, and readers will delight as their unconventional tactics create rambling paths to happiness." -Publishers Weekly on The Devil Takes a Bride

"London's engaging series is recommended for all romance collections." -Library Journal on The Scoundrel and the Debutante

"A delectably sexy hero, an unconventionally savvy heroine, and a completely improper business proposal add up to another winner for ever-versatile London." -Booklist on The Trouble with Honor
