Once again, I couldn't put it down. I read it in less than 24 hours. I just hope a part two will come out for it. If you like fairytales, you'll enjoy this book.
Lisa Cach at her best. London based chic lit with a nice little romance.
Fun, light-hearted beach read. Not the deepest book I've ever read, but was great for a lazy summer afternoon. :)
If you're looking for good escape reading, this is your book! When the main character rushes off to Great Britain in search of a royal beau, she embodies the irrational romaticism that most modern women refuse to indulge. I'm not the superstitious type, but two years ago I was reading this book when I met my fiance. Happy reading!
Fun, chick-lit book set in the U.K.
Great! I love fairy tale endings!
This was SUCH a good book! My first by this author. I loved the parallel with Cinderella and couldn't put this book down. Wonderful ending!

-Cute plot, quick and enjoyable read-definitely recommend
Katy Orville is an unemployed technical writer suffering from depression in Seattle. Afraid of returning to the poverty of her childhood, she has an M&M-induced epiphany and decides to follow the dictates of her sage, Oprah, and develop a "life map" to find her true self--and an English aristocrat. She travels to London and stays at a very strange bed-and-breakfast, where the Wiccan landlady sends her to the Tower of London. Organic farmer Will Eland is going to a wedding at the tower, and after nearly running her down, he assumes that she is also attending the ceremony and escorts her there, thus effecting Katy's introduction into society. Katy is attracted to Will, but her childhood fears about money prevent her from taking him seriously; if she only knew that he is a duke.
Inspired by a famous talk show host to "live her best life," out-of-work tech writer Katy Orville flies off to London to find the man of her dreams. But in order to catch a prince, she has to shed her all-American girl image and transform herself into a hip, fashionable heiress. Can she really pull it off? Will she?
At a society wedding, it seems like a dream come true when a handsome man in a formal kilt begins a hot pursuit, clearly smitten with Katy. Unfortunately, Will Eland is more interested in rebuilding some old estate in the countryside than in partying with the aristos - how can she be attracted to Mr. Handyman when she's looking for a nobleman? But appearances can be deceiving, as Katy well knows. Sometimes a prince is disguised as a pauper - and sometimes an ordinary bloke is really a duke. And she hopes that playing make-believe hasn't ruined her chance for happily ever after...
