The Princess Companion by Melanie Cellier

Five stars

One dark and stormy night, lost and alone, Alyssa finds herself knocking on the door of a castle.

After a lifetime spent in the deep forest, Alyssa has no idea what to expect on the other side.

What she finds is two unruly young princesses and one very handsome prince. When Alyssa accepts the job of Princess Companion she knows her life will change. What she doesn’t know is that the royal family is about to be swept up in unexpected danger and intrigue and that she just might be the only thing standing between her kingdom and destruction.

This retelling of the classic fairy tale, The Princess and the Pea, reimagines the risks and rewards that come when one royal family goes searching for a true princess.

Danger and romance await a woodcutter’s daughter in a royal palace.

I loved this book so much!!!

I was a little unsure about it going into it but it was far better than what I was thinking!! It was sweet and I absolutely adored the relationship between Max and Alyssa! Alyssa especially had an amazing personality and was someone I could admire. Max was the perfect match for her!

The adventure and intrigue was also on par! I was on the edge of my seat in many parts and gasping at others. What I thought was just going to be a sweet love story turned into so much more with secrets totally unexpected!

Altogether a perfectly beautiful and amazing book! One that I would highly recommend.

“I am soft. But that doesn’t mean I’m not brave. I just save my bravery for when it’s actually needed.”
