Lucy Trabbicio’s a down-on-her-luck, young, American, former biker-bar cocktail waitress desperate to find a job. Lady Elizabeth Billingsley hires Lucy to travel to Fredonia, the tiny jewel of a country in the Alps, for ten days ‘tops’ to impersonate her.

Say what? How the heck is that going to happen?

In the mother of all makeovers, Elizabeth’s people teach Lucy how to dress, walk, talk, eat, be coiffed and even get naked like a European Lady.

The goal?

To keep Crown Prince Cristoph Timmel interested in Elizabeth until she finishes her unexpected, pressing personal business in the States.

But fate intervenes… Lucy meets and is wildly attracted to sexy, bad-boy Nick on the oh-so-long flights to Fredonia. Unfortunately for Lucy—Nick and Elizabeth have a hot sexual history, which Nick wants to immediately resume.

Prince Cristoph proposes marriage. What’s an imposter girl to do? Elizabeth insists that she’ll make it back home in time for the wedding. Lucy accepts Cristoph’s proposal and is on the fast track to becoming a Princess but continues to fall for the wrong Prince of Fredonia—Nick. When another tiny glitch arises—someone’s trying to kill her.

The only folks helping Lucy are her wild, party hard, take-no-prisoners Ladies-in-Waiting.

When the real Lady Elizabeth decides she’s not marrying Cristoph and never returning to Fredonia, Lucy’s faced with an uncomfortable decision—continue her deception, marry the prince she’s not in love with and live a dream life albeit without Nick, her dream guy? Or tell the truth and return to poverty and oblivion?

A modern day sexy fairy tale with romance, twists and turns, LOL moments, a few tears and an empowering ending.

TSR My Review

Part-time princess can be pretty entertaining as long as you don’t overthink it.  If you put too much thought into it you’ll start wondering how it’s possible that not even her own family realizes it’s not really Elizabeth and many details might not make total sense, but don’t let it bug you.  There is a whole other side to the book that makes up for it.  It is just not meant to be realistic or deep but rather a light, humorous story.

I liked the ending but I would’ve liked to know more about what happened with the real Elizabeth.  Perhaps that is something that will be covered in the next book.  I have so many questions about her and her family and what ended up happening to Fredonia.

As far as the characters goes, I really loved Nick.  Cristoph on the other hand, I thoroughly disliked -but I still wanted to know more about him.  So maybe we’ll just need to wait for the next book to get more answers.  Overall, a pretty funny and enjoyable read!
