Book Review & Giveaway! In Search of a Prince

In Search of a Prince

by Toni Shiloh

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 Thoughts

Not only does this book have one of the most beautiful covers I’ve ever seen, the story inside is also just fantastic!

It reminds me a lot of the story line of Princess Diaries, but it has a lot more substance to it than those movies…

Bri is your typical american, school teacher, and overall quite happy with life. Then her mon drops this bombshell on her and everything changes.

Toni Shiloh has beautifully portrayed life in this fictional African country. I would absolutely love visiting Oloro Ile. Exotic lands, cultures, foods, all of those things highly appeal to me, and I always enjoy visiting another place even if it’s just through the pages of fiction.

This book is just astounding. The people, the customs, the land itself. Well written, and the story line is so sweet. That whole normal girl to a princess story line that so many of us romantics never get tired of…. I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next book about Bri’s friend Iris.this story.

  1. Cinderella has always been my favorite princess fairy tale. I also like Hannah Currie’s princess series Daughters of Peverell.
