My Review: Sometimes a small book packs the most punch! Such is the case with Princess In Peril by Rachelle McCalla. This book begins with a motorcade of the royal family being blown to bits by insurgents but focuses on just one car-Princess Isabella's. Unbeknowst, to Isabella her father had an "inkling" that something might be amiss so he made plans to change Isabella's body guard. Levi is now Isabella's bodyguard. He takes his job very seriously and he is good at it.
The mystery and challenge of trying to find out why the insurgents want the royal family dead is intriguing. And trying to find the "who" is behind this terrible action is a mystery that Isabella and Levi must track down.
This was a most believable read and truly enjoyable.
This read is filled with action, suspense, action, romance, action and faith. This is probably my all time favorite Love Inspired book for 2011. I can't wait for the second book in reclaiming the crown series!
