Summary

It seems like a dream come true...until it forces her to question everything.  

Brielle Adebayo is fully content teaching at a New York City public school and taking annual summer vacations with her mother to Martha’s Vineyard. But everything changes when her mom drops a bombshell - Brielle is really a princess in the island kingdom of Ọlọrọ Ilé, off the coast of Africa, and she must immediately assume her royal position, since the health of her grandfather, the king, is failing.  

Distraught by all the secrets her mother kept, Brielle is further left spinning when the Ọlọrọ Ilé Royal Council brings up an old edict that states she must marry before her coronation, or the crown will pass to another. Brielle is uncertain if she even wants the throne, and with her world totally shaken, where will she find the courage to take a chance on love and brave the perils a wrong decision may bring?

Best book I read this year!

This so far is one of my favorites this year! I love how they took everything to prayer. Every decision, both happy & sad. I love the love story & how that was laid out. Even though I was about to figure out who did what pretty quickly the reason behind it had me shocked, I love having a story in Africa & not focus only on racial issues. I seriously love this book & can't wait to see what else this author brings out.

In Search of a Prince

This book flowed and despite its length, it kept you wondering what was going to happen next. The writing and reading performance was so thorough that my mind was mentally walking the halls at the palace, wondering thru the busy market, enjoying the beach, participating in Council Meetings, and other activities that Her Highness undertook. My only disappointment was that it took Brielle over 20 chapters to try to amend with her mother, and that she negated fully grandfather's role in the separation. The choices of a prince were God-awful, and her courage in that process was admirable. The "whodunnit" was an expected twist in the novel, but my suspicion was spot on, but I guessed for a different reason that what was given, which that was also a surprise and well handled thru DNA testing. Book was 13 hours in length and I enjoyed every chapter. During my listening, my comments to self was that there was no editing errors, and that Toni Shiloh could tell a good story. This could be my favorite book of the year, and is definitely the favorite of the 151 books I've read during 2022!
I would truly give this book 10 stars.

What A Beautiful Story!

I absolutely loved this story about a woman whose father was a prince. Long story short, since the prince was deceased and the King was ill, the daughter would be next in line for the throne. I encourage you to enjoy this ride in Africa!

Wish this could be a movie

I enjoyed this book so much! Brielle was such a strong leading character and Tomori, the love interest, was dreamy! I only wish that their relationship could have started earlier in the book because I definitely wanted more of that. Hoping to get more books in this world. Would definitely like a book about Iris!

The narration was excellent - one of the best I’ve listened to. The voices were distinct and well done. Will look for more books with this narrator.

Great narrator for this charming story!

This is the story of a girl who discovers she’s heir to an African throne. There’s love, complicated family dynamics, sorrow, and intrigue. At the center is a believable and likable heroine. Great story! The narrator is perfect for this novel! Thumbs up!!

A Wonderful Romance

This is one of my new favorite books. Not since Lori Wick’s “The Princes” have I enjoyed a Royal book so much.

This is a book I will read again—very rare for me.

The narrator did a great job, and I suspect made the book even enjoyable than if I had only been reading the words.

Amazing Book

I absolutely loved it ❤️, I would have given it 5 stars but I needed it to pull me in a little more emotionally. I love when can make me laugh, cry or talk to them like I'm there and although the book was really good , it lacked that part for me.
