If anyone had told me a year ago that I would find true love through a pea, I would have laughed.
Lost in the woods. A rainy night. An uncomfortable mattress. What next?
After getting caught in a terrible storm one night, Alyssa has no choice but to take shelter in the Winter Castle. However, while staying there, Alyssa finds herself as the new “Princess Companion.” She is growing fond of the royal family, but not everything is happy-go-lucky. It seems that danger is awaiting the royal family. Is Alyssa strong enough to save them?
My Thoughts on the Story
The first thing I gotta say is that I LOVED this book!!!!! I loved it so so much!!! It had a great plotline that kept me curious till the end! And it had WONDERFUL characters!! (Characters are my favorite thing in books, and these characters were superb!) I just can’t get enough of Max and Alyssa! Plus, it had a lot of side characters that I loved as well.
On top of loving the storyline and the characters, I was SUPER happy that this was a clean book! No bad words that I could tell (except I think the word “stupid” might have been used a few times). And when Max became engaged to a princess, there was a moment he wanted to kiss the girl he really loved, but didn’t. So, yeah, this book was very clean, and I wish I could rate it 10 stars. I think Melanie Cellier is going to be one of my favorite authors now, and I can’t wait to read more of her books!!! 😀
I recommend The Princess Companion to anyone who loves fairytale-type stories and a bit of romance.
