I liked the writing and the characters. Two things were very unusual for me to read about:
Discussing a TV show called Naked Attraction and pigeon races…
As someone, who grew up in Germany with racing pigeons in the neighborhood both were extremely funny.
Well, it turns out there's not really any royal here at all. There is an English earl and his estranged American grandson. It also turns out that the story is well written, cute, funny, sexy, romantic, and filled with interesting, quirky people.
The author is American but she seems, to my admittedly limited knowledge of life in the British Isles, to have gotten the U.S. guy and his bemusement at the way of life of the inhabitants of the quirky English village of Bowhaven translated well to paper. I have no idea if she has spent time in England or thereabouts but this story doesn't feel as clueless as others I have read.
As far as the plot, there's this aging Earl of Englefield who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and has no living heir except for an estranged American grandson, Nick Vane, of Salvation, Virgina. The earl needs Nick to come and learn the ropes about being an earl so he will be able to take over when the earl is no longer capable.
To this effect, the earl's young secretary, Brooke Chapman-Powell, daughter of the local pub owner and recently returned to Bowhaven after a disastrous attempt at life in Manchester, gets in touch with Nick to try to convince him to come to England.
But Nick is holding a huge grudge against his English family. His late father William had come to America, fallen in love with and married his mother, fathered him, and then was persuaded by his grandfather, the aforementioned Earl of Englefield, to annul the marriage and come back to England. To compound this, Nick's mother died young and he was placed in foster care. No reason in the world for Nick to be interested in his uncaring English relatives.
Well, I won't say more. You have to read this without more blabbing by me because the plot itself is slight. However, it's charmingly told. A delightful escape from life as we know it nowadays.
