Aria (the princess) is nearly killed in the US, somehow our government makes a plan for her to become an American housewife, while a fake princess stands in for her (because that makes sense). Then she goes back to her country pretending to be a married American so the palace will choose her to "pretend" to be the real princess. Following?
Probably not, because it's convoluted and stupid.
Nothing more to say.
Certain things seem to be exaggerated in this story: a Princess, Aria, who won't allow anyone to touch her when she has just been rescued from drowning and no one but her rescuer is around. Really? And she is described as smart but can't figure out the difference between one-hundred dollar bills and one-dollar bills when she goes to tip the redcap? She can't figure out how to unbutton her dress - was she blind while her maid unbuttoned those same buttons every day? Laughable that royalty can't pick up a roll - cut and eat with a fork!
This was an enjoyable romance but not one which will bear re-reading. Much was predictable but there was a mystery as to which of Aria's relatives was the one trying to assassinate her. The country's economic dilemma seems to be another one of the exaggerations but adds to the story as it provides a reason J. T. Montgomery is needed as a permanent part of the leadership.
After being "persuaded" to marry her by the US government, J. T. only wants to get Aria back to her own country and is only too happy to give her over to her "fiancé" but then sabotages her meetings with that man. Interesting relatives who seem to have no real reason to be hanging around. None of them even make public appearances? And then the country's main source of income, their grape/wine production, is in jeopardy because of a drought. Added to this is the fact that the country's youth are forced to leave to seek jobs elsewhere. Does no one in this country learn about economics, agriculture or leadership? Are they all puppets? The sale of a Lanconia's vanadium is given as the only viable way to save the country's economic crisis but to whom will they sell such during WWII.
Montgomery family to the rescue!
