How (Not) To Date A Prince
Surely fairy tales don’t happen in real life?
After being jilted at the altar, high-flying journalist Sam doesn’t believe in love any more – and she certainly doesn’t believe in fairy tales! So, when she’s asked to cover the Royal Wedding, it’s the last thing she wants to do.
And when she crashes into a ridiculously handsome stranger, Anders, things go from bad to worse. But as the big day draws closer, Sam finds herself being swept up in the excitement – as well as swept off her feet by Anders!
But there’s something that Anders is hiding from her – and when he finally reveals his secret, might Sam just have the happy-ever-after she never thought she wanted…?
This novel is tremendous fun. We have a super heroine in Sam, who’s an ambitious, strong and very likeable young lady, still recovering from a traumatic wedding day that wasn’t. It has thus become The Day That Shall Not Be Named. She has built up a deserved reputation for her political journalism, so when called on to cover the royal wedding in Norway between Prince Isaac and the glamorous Holly, since the usual journalist is indisposed, she’s rightfully indignant. However, once she’s calmed down she accepts the job and determines, as usual, to do her best on it.
Once she arrives in Norway, events take on breakneck speed as she goes from misunderstanding to mishap to mayhem. It turns into quite the Scandal-avian break and Sam eventually finds herself behind the wrong kind of bars.
But this is a romcom and we know we’ll have our happy ending. Zoe May enjoys teasing us along the way with the will-they, won’t-they actions that keep us hanging on every word!
There’s lots of humour, snappy one-liners, a cast of convincing and, in some cases, slightly eccentric characters who interact delightfully and engage in some brilliantly enjoyable escapades.
Absolutely to read!
