(133)The Runaway Princess by Hester Browne

The Runaway Princess

Publication Date: 10/2/2012
Pages: 448

Every little girl grows up hoping to find their Prince Charming.  The handsome man who will sweep her off her feet and treat her like a Queen. Gardener Amy Wilde is no different.  She meets the handsome, Leo and only after he sweeps her of her feet does Amy realize that Leo is a Prince and about to become the next in line to the throne.

What all little girls don't realize is that being a Princess is not everything that it is cracked up to be. The rules of etiquette alone are enough to drive Amy crazy and it does not take long for the media scrutiny to invade every aspect of her life. Even digging up parts of her family's history that are best if they remain buried.  Will Amy runaway from it all and the man of her dreams or will she be able to acclimate to life as a Princess?

My world has been pretty busy since school started & I haven't had a whole lot of time to read.  Which is why it took me over a week to finish this book.  I did really enjoy The Runaway Princess, as I do with all of Hester Browne's books.  Amy was a fun character and I loved her friends, Ted and Jo.  Their parties are obviously legendary. LOL.   Having said that, the book really didn't grab me like I had hoped.  I think it was mostly because I was just too busy to give it the focus it deserved.

Bottom line, Hester Browne is a great Chick Lit author who has become one of my "must read" authors.  In Amy Wilde, she created a sweet, funny, and independent young woman who just wants happiness, but is  not ready to sacrifice her family to attain that happiness.  If you are looking for a good "fluffy" kind of book, than look no further.  The Runaway Princess is just for you!

This makes me think of a grown-up version of The Princess Diaries (remember those?)

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
