Publisher's Summary

When her family's cider business is ruined and other local businesses are vandalized, Anika Penning wonders if the recent bout of unrest is merely a result of rivalry between local merchants and noblemen, or if something more sinister is at the root of the recent crimes. Along her journey Anika befriends Prince Valdemar, future king of Brevalia, but their relationship hits many twists and turns along the way. Lady Winifred Paxel Flemming pursues the prince relentlessly. His grandmother, Queen Marguerite, expects him to wed whoever she thinks is suitable, even if it means marrying a foreign princess he's never met. Anika's mother, Lady Sarah, wants Anika to help ease the family's financial burdens by marrying Erland Riccats, National Chairman of the Merchants' Guild. Lady Sarah also harbors secrets regarding Prince Valdemar's mother, Princess Karin, who met an untimely death years before. In the end, will both Anika and Prince Valdemar be forced into loveless marriages, or will they be able to outwit their enemies?

This book is a true fairy tale delight. It has great narration and a good story with, mystery, and romance. It grabbed my attention from the start and couldn't wait to find out how it ends. So glad there are more books in this series. It is a clean read so it is suitable for all ages, especially the young at heart

Clean Teen Mystery/Romance

I really enjoyed this clean teen mystery/romance and believe that listeners of all ages will also. Anika and Prince Valdemar were very likeable characters and the story had enough plot twists to keep me guessing. A fun story, mystery and romance all came together nicely, with everything resolved at the end. Cecily White as narrator was excellent and added to my enjoyment. I would recommend Royally Entitled: Brides of Brevalia, Book 1.

Clean YA/Teen Medieval Mystery & Romance

I really enjoyed this young adult mystery romance! The story sucked me in and I had a hard time putting it down. The characters are well developed and the tale moves along at a great pace with quite a few unexpected twists and turns.

Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

The characters are captivating and I felt immersed in the story. There is some faith aspects woven into the story, and this book also talks about the power of prayer giving the characters strength to overcome the many obstacles in their way.

The story wraps up nicely with no major cliffhangers! All the mysterious incidents are well sorted out and the guilty parties dealt with. There is also a HEA conclusion for the main characters.

I’m really looking forward to the next book in this well written tale! It is a great listen for any age group!

Young royal romance

This is a YA fairytale with a strong female lead in Anika. Anika's mother wants her to marry a man to help the family financially with the cider farm. Prince Valdemar, heir to the throne of Brevalia may be forced to marry a princess he is not in love with. Mystery, twists I didnt see coming and a young romance makes this story very interesting. Will Anika and Val find their HEA? Cecily White narration is very good. I enjoyed listening to this story. 🎧audiobookobsessionreviewer🎧

Great book

The author has done research on how things took place back in that time period. The way the lead characters story unfolds is intriguing and leaves you wanting to read/listen to more. I love how the story unfolds showing more and more behind what is going on as she investigates things. The narrator has a good voice and keeps things moving. #AudioBookObsession

okay

The story was okay. The narration was lacking for the male voices. It made me keep thinking the Prince was a girl. There wasn't much inflection when there was indignation or passion for something. The story had some surprises, but helpless was the main emotion coming through.

Great Story

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This was a good story that I enjoyed. The manner that the end happened really surprised me. I did not expect who the murderer was and was glad to be surprised. I loved the love story as well as how the queen ended the story. The grandson was wimpy for a time but as the story progressed he became a better man. The narrator was very good and made the story come to life. It was well developed and made sense throughout.

Nice romance

This was a good clean romance. My only complaint is that sometimes the protagonist seemed a bit bratty (it felt that way to me anyway). With that being said, I really did enjoy the book and would listen to others in the series.

Medieval House of Cards?

Loosely based on the late Middle Ages, the Kingdom of Brevalia roughly parallels England in climate and politics, a monarchy interacting with a senate composed of nobles and merchants. The balance of power is shifting and civil war is threatened, thwarting the budding romance of our heroine, Anika. I picked up early on the "culprits" (yes, there are cozy mystery elements) although I didn't quite get all the details right, but the political twists and turns reminded me a bit of "House of Cards"--the BBC version. Narrator Cecily White proved quite adept at accents and voices (AUDIO), keeping my attention through a number of chores. Thoroughly entertaining!

Royally Entitled

Anika is a brave and outspoken girl, and for her time that is probably not a good thing. in a chance meeting her family cider storage catches fire and the prince happens to be in the hunting party that spots the disaster. Anika needs the help because everyone else is out at the fair. Some foul play continues to take place in their village and she has suspicions of who may be involved, but she can't go around accusing people. The story is fun and sweet. The narration is nice and easy to listen to. Thanks Audiobook Obsession for the recomendation.

I love it!!!

The cover was the first thing that attracted me to the book. I then read the description, which I thought was interesting. Once I started listening to the audio book I was so glad that I did. I have to say that I love it!!
I thought I knew what to expect but the author surprised me. I was not expecting the mystery which took me a while to fugure out who did it. There was suspense, romance and mystery.
My only negative is the love interest Prince Valdemar who really frustrated me at times. I wanted him to have more of a backbone. Unlike Anika who tried, really hard to help her family and friend and she tried to solve who was behind the problems. I actually really liked her.
Religion is part of the story but it doesn't take over the book, it suited the time period and it gave the characters, in my opinion, some realism. They struggled with what is happening and this in turn made them struggle with there belief. It was an interesting read on the human side of things, which I think the author did really well.

I liked the narrator, I thought she gave the characters there own voice. I could distingush between them without being told who they were. I would be more then happy to listen to her other narration.

A Unique Historical Christian Suspense Romance

This story is quite unlike most of the books in this genre. Anika's family exists on the fringes of high society because of her father's successful cider business and her mother's high-society background. But Anika would never be considered princess material. It isn't just because of her station but because of her decidedly unladylike pursuits and her unfashionable endeavours. She can shoot a crossbow, strategise with the best of them and straddle the line between merchant class and high society. A string of crimes threatens the livelihoods of Anika's family and those of her friends. Coupled with political unrest, modernisation, and an unlikely friendship with and an attraction to Crown Prince Valdemar, Anika suddenly finds herself the centre of attention while in the midst of solving a mystery. But Anika is no fading wallflower. She unapologetically brings her strong feminist attributes and her equally strong Christian faith to the table to help her friends, the queen and her country find their way through the mystery. Melody Delgado has drawn on interesting and sometimes contradictory elements to piece together this story. The result is quite unique, definitely interesting and overall enjoyable. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
