ONCE UPON A PRINCESS
Once Upon a Princess (4) by Holly Jacobs is the Cinderella story turned on its head. Parker Dillion, or "Marie Anna" to her royal subjects, is a princess who wants more than anything to put her royal life behind her and live a normal, middle-class life. And Jace, a handsome private investigator sent to spy on her, finds that she is becoming more than just a case. To complicate matters, Parker's childhood friend shows up, hoping to convince her to return to her country and marry him. Parker is a refreshing, sassy heroine, and the supporting characters are equally well-written.
