“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?

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.
My daughter (17) and I have both been reading at the same time, on 2 different devices of course. It is quite amusing to hear us giggling at different parts of the story, and also getting frustrated that one or the other didn't read quick enough to discuss a certain part without spilling the beans.
Today I finished the book and found that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I enjoyed the story twists, romance, Royal headaches, humor, towns I recognized, and all that is relative to things today. I totally recommend this as a good light read.
