Book Review: In Search Of A Prince


From The Back:

It seems like a dream come true . . . until it forces her to question everything.

Brielle Adebayo is fully content teaching at a New York City public school and taking annual summer vacations with her mother to Martha's Vineyard. But everything changes when her mom drops a bombshell--Brielle is really a princess in the island kingdom of Ọlọrọ Ilé, off the coast of Africa, and she must immediately assume her royal position, since the health of her grandfather, the king, is failing.

Distraught by all the secrets her mother kept, Brielle is further left spinning when the Ọlọrọ Ilé Royal Council brings up an old edict that states she must marry before her coronation, or the crown will pass to another. Brielle is uncertain if she even wants the throne, and with her world totally shaken, where will she find the courage to take a chance on love and brave the perils a wrong decision may bring?

My Reflections:

In Search of a Prince weaves the classic fairy tale into a realistic modern-day version. This is the modern princess we have all been waiting for. 

I blissfully enjoyed every page of this book, it hit all the right places. Faith, romance (yet be it slow and simmering) strength of spirit, and a touch of surprise. This story feels fluffy on the outside but it delves much deeper into the core beliefs we all must tease out in life. I enjoyed the beautiful setting, the storyline, and the adorable characters.

I so appreciated the character and strength Brielle exhibited. Such a hefty role to have thrust upon you, yet Brielle masterfully pulls it off making this a believable story in an otherwise unbelievable storyline. 

This is a rare jewel, it made me laugh, cry, and anxiously await the next page. If you are looking for a new romance that is modern yet picturesque of your fairy tale days this is the book for you, my friends!
