Publisher's Summary

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Princess Diaries series comes the very first adult installment, which follows Princess Mia and her Prince Charming as they plan their fairy-tale wedding - but a few poisoned apples could turn this happily ever after into a royal nightmare.

For Princess Mia the past five years since college graduation have been a whirlwind of activity, what with living in New York City, running her new teen community center, being madly in love, and attending royal engagements. And speaking of engagements. Mia's gorgeous longtime boyfriend, Michael, managed to clear both their schedules just long enough for an exotic (and very private) Caribbean island interlude where he popped the question! Of course Mia didn't need to consult her diary to know that her answer was a royal oui.

But now Mia has a scandal of majestic proportions to contend with: Her grandmother's leaked fake wedding plans to the press that could cause even normally calm Michael to become a runaway groom. Worse, a scheming politico is trying to force Mia's father from the throne, all because of a royal secret that could leave Genovia without a monarch. Can Mia prove to everyone - especially herself - that she's not only ready to wed but ready to rule as well?

Happiness only!

Rarely does a book come along that you want to listen to over and over again. For me, this is on repeat in my car. It is happy, upbeat, and has a few unexpected twists. I loved that I haven't read one of her books in years, but I easily caught up on the story.

I also loved it because the characters are my age. I may not be a princess, but I still deal with many of the things Mia deals with; balancing a career, a boyfriend, and sometimes overbearing family members. It's nice to feel comraderie with characters.

This book made me laugh, smile, and think about what is really important in life. I didn't cry, but that wasn't what I was looking for in this book anyways.

Great work from Meg Cabot!

Application for Genovian Citizenship

It was so nostalgic to read another Princess Diaries book and find out where all the characters are now, all grown up and going through the same things I'm going through in my life right now. Well same, without all the royal stuff and family drama. I love the way Meg Cabot has such a strong voice for Mia, and how it all ended happily ever after. Even if the storylines where somewhat predictable, it was never less entertaining. I wish the book was longer so I could continue on living vicariously through Mia's life. I hope there will be more books in the future! And also, can I move to Genovia too? I'm sure the palace has a spare bedroom somewhere... I can be a nanny! haha

inconsistent narrator from previous, cheap ending

There is a new narrator who doesn't care about the pronunciation or characterizations from the previous 10 audiobooks. For instance Lana's name or Granmere's accent. Tina and Lilly have switched voices. It's a difficult transition.

After ten books, it's exciting to start with the idea of Mia getting married. The addition of a storyline that serves to give the author a spin-off series is a disservice to the readers and inconsistent with the previous books. I was very disappointed by Meg Cabot.

So Disappointed

What a waste of my money. I loved this series and thought this would be a great finishing chapter. Unfortunately, it really just was over the top. I thought the quality of the story and writing was not on par with the rest of the series. And, she threw in the topic of refugees without giving them the proper level of understanding of a true crisis. Really bummed.

She's back!!!

The Princess Mia we grew up with is back and as charming as ever. But her insecurities have been dialed back in a refreshing and necessary way - hope it rubs off!!

Oh Mia...

I loved the story! The only thing I wasn't fond of was that Arielle DeLisle didn't try to use the same voice for the other characters. It was disappointing. Sometimes I had to go back a bit because I couldn't remember who was talking since their voice wasnt distinct. This happened the most with Tina and Lily's voice. Besides that, the story was great.

Nostalgic

I loved listening to this book because I love this series. I was dying for an update about Mia's life. despite that, the narrator didn't do a good job at all. Her voice wasn't a good match to Mia in my opinion, and she didn't differentiate well enough all the different voices.
Of course this book is a bit predictable, but so what?? I loved getting back into HRH Mia's world.

Amazing conclusion to amazing series

This is a great conclusion to one of my favorite series. If you have read the other Princess Diaries books, you can’t miss this one.

It almost made me miss Clea Lewis

I know everyone says that you can’t beat Anne Hathaway’s performance, and this holds doubly true when you roll out the third string narrator Arielle DeLisle. Don’t get me wrong, her voice is why more pleasing to listen to than Clea Lewis. But the problem is, her voice is the only one she knows how to do. This means that you can barely tell the difference between Mia’s personal narration, Lily’s voice, Tina’s voice, or basically any female voice. Granted, she can do the male voices way better than Lewis (whose grating JP voice always made me want to turn off the audio book altogether), however her narration is so bland that I honestly could not get through the audio book. I’ve read the book before and was pleased with it if memory serves, and just finished bingeing on the whole series so I know it isn’t the story that detracts from this audiobook. My advice: read the books. Listen to the first three audiobooks in the series, and, if you can stomach it, feel out Lewis’s performance. DeLisle waters down Meg Cabot’s vibrant characters way too much.
