Book Review: "Good Enough for a Princess" by Carol Moncado

The Monarchies of Belles Montagnes     
Book 1: Montevaro

Crown Princess Adeline of Montevaro has her life planned out for her: get her Master's in international relations, marry nobility, produce an heir, inherit the throne. There's no room for romance with the single father she meets when their cars collide on an icy winter night. Parliament - and her father - would never approve.

Charlie Brewer grew up without roots. The son of an archaeologist father and anthropologist mother, he either traveled along or lived with his aunt and uncle in the States. He's determined to give his daughter the stability he never had. He also wants to give her a mom, but the beautiful European he's falling for refuses to move to Serenity Landing, Missouri permanently.

He won't move. She can't stay. What will happen when they try to forget each other by dating someone "acceptable"? They find themselves drawn together by one of the girls in the after school program Addie supports - a girl who happens to be Charlie's daughter. How will Charlie, and his daughter, feel when they find out the woman they've both fallen for is a... princess?

A trip halfway around the world shows Charlie and Addie how much they long to be together - and how impossible it is. Is there any way he can prove he is Good Enough for a Princess?

(Series previously titled The Montevaro Monarchy)

My Thoughts "Good Enough for a Princess" is the first book in the Monarchies of Belles Montagnes series. I had previously read the fourth and fifth books in the series (when they were the first two books in a second series that was merged into the one larger series). I decided that I wanted to go back and start from the beginning to get to know the characters better as they make appearances in the other books. The book follows four different people: Addie, Jonathan, Charlie, and Samantha. It was interesting seeing how the stories intersected. I found the book to be well written and kept my interest throughout. I had a hard time doing anything else because I wanted to read. I am glad there are more books in the series for me to enjoy.

About the Author  Carol Moncado
When she's not writing about her imaginary friends, USA Today Bestselling Author Carol Moncado prefers binge watching pretty much anything to working out. She believes peanut butter M&Ms are the perfect food and Dr. Pepper should come in an IV. When not hanging out with her hubby, four kids, and two dogs who weigh less than most hard cover books, she’s probably reading in her Southwest Missouri home.

Summers find her at the local aquatic center with her four fish, er, kids. Fall finds her doing the band mom thing. Winters find her snuggled into a blanket in front of a fire with the dogs. Spring finds her sneezing and recovering from the rest of the year.
