The Royal Mess by MaryJanice Davidson

The Royal Mess by MaryJanice Davidson
2011, Brava
Series: Book 3 of Alaskan Royal Family

Synopsis: In a world nearly identical to ours, the North won the Civil War, flannel is the new bling, and Russia never sold Alaska to the U.S. Instead, Alaska is a beautiful, rough-and-tumble country ruled by a famously eccentric royal family who put the fun back in dysfunctional. And the tabloid darlings are about to get more ink once the King's "royal oats" come back in the form of a surprise princess, landing them all in, well, THE ROYAL MESS.

Why read: Finishing up the trilogy

What impressed me: I loved revisiting with the family and all their kooky ways. The Alaskan Royal Family series is awesome with alternative history details and great humor, and The Royal Mess absolutely follows the trend.

What disappointed me: The Royal Mess isn't the end of the trilogy as much as a companion novel to the two previous books. It was disappointing to read about a romance between a new couple as opposed to someone already in the family.

Recommended: Yes, but you may want to read the previous two books first to really experience the details.
