“a whirlwind of jaw-dropping, hilarious, and occasionally touching events. Original fans of the series, now adults themselves, will be thrilled with this, but it will be enjoyable for those on either side of Cabot’s extensive fan base.” (Booklist)
“Cabot has a knack for hilarious dialogue and zany characters, but she also creates a story that’s full of heart. Fans who grew up with Mia will relish this opportunity to spend more time in her world. This funny, heartwarming story is royally perfect from start to finish.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))
From the Back Cover
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries series comes the very first adult installment, which follows Princess Mia and her prince charming as they plan their fairy-tale wedding—though 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: living in New York City, running her new teen community center, 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 has 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 much preferred how things ended in Forever Princess, and I'll keep considering that the end of the series since this latest installment did nothing whatsoever for me. I feel bad for rating this so low, as I generally like Cabot's novels. Nevertheless, I really did not enjoy this one. At least it was a super fast read (I read it in a single evening).
Mia is 26, only three years older than I am, and she has her hands full. Her dad, the Prince of Genovia, is suffering a midlife crisis. The press hounds her every where she goes, including when she visits the community center she founded, and she has a stalker that has sent death threats. Mia's been forced to hide out at the Genovian consulate from the press and her stalker, and she rarely gets to see the man she loves. She hopes that at least she and Michael can have the wedding of their dreams-- quiet, with a few family members and family-- but Grandmere gets involved, and the drama ensues. And Mia hasn't even found out about ALL her father's shenanigans, or that a twelve-year old named Olivia needs her help.
I don't blame Mia for suffering an eye twitch from all the stress. Like me, she suffers general anxiety and I would have an eye twitch if my dad (RIP, Appa) had gotten arrested driving a race car into New York, in addition to my regular stresses.
Honestly, this book packed more than a few punches, and was levels better than the movie sequel that supposedly featured an engagement party, because it talked about real-world issues like oppression and refugees from the Middle East, upper-class snobbery and racism (shame on the fictional people that sent death threats to Mia and her family!) and Internet trolls that have no better things to do than to harass a princess that does a lot more community service than they do.
Let the facts state that I hate Internet trolls, and I hate racists that have an Internet connection. Good for Meg to address these issues and show them in a serious light. Even better for Meg was to show that Tina has become Mia's best friend in life, though Lilly and Mia are still on good terms, to show that some things can be forgiven but never forgotten. JP, back from his morally dubious stints in book ten, shows that forgiveness has its limits, even from princesses.
Michael is a really amazing boyfriend, though he's certainly got the makings of an evil genius like his sister. If he likes or loves you, he'll use his smarts to make you happy. If you cross him, however, he makes Lilly's brutal moments look tame.
Is there anything that I dislike about the book? Actually, yes: the fact that someone dies before the book starts and we only see the aftermath a year later, not to mention what ends up happening with Mia's mom. We didn't see any pain there, though Mia founds the community center in his honor, and it would've been nice to have a proper goodbye with him.
Apart from that, Kudos. Also with the twist towards the end of the book, I hope that a sequel will happen during which we see Michael's shenanigans in the Genovian palaces.
In this book Cabot did not shy away from taking a few risks/unexpected plot turns. The story picks up 9 years after the end of the last book, re-introducing us to Mia as she is turning 26. Quickly, Cabot catches us up on some of the big changes that have occurred in Mia's life (to readers of the Teen series, these changes are significant). As the story un-folds the surprises keep coming, but Mia, her friends and family are such endearing characters that I found myself devouring every crazy twist. I will admit that by the very nature of this series' story-line (at 14 Mia discovers she is heir to the throne of a small european country) it sometimes falls victim to a few contrivances. BUT Cabot is clever and the outcome of this story feels earned and years in the making.
Cabot has aged the young adult characters with such intentionality and accuracy; evolving their relationships, interactions and dialogue with each installment. As a long time reader of this series I have been the same age as these characters as I read each book. Now, in my 20's, I read this installment from a different perspective and had keen appreciation of how Mia as a narrator was as relatable, honest and witty as ever but her motivations had changed. I identified with this evolution and it made me love this book even more.
You'll route for Mia cover to cover.
I highly recommend-- this was the perfect addition to a heart-warming series.
This sequel felt forced, like Cabot just lost the rhythm and language of her characters. Grandmere's character (the true co-star of the series) was really lacking here. (It's always been my secret wish that Mia would finally sincerely thank her grandmother for all she had taught her. But what happened next was just awful!)
I got really tired of the constant mentions of the media, the paps, etc. The title of this book really should have been PRINCESS OF ALL MEDIA.
