Review of Three Weeks With A Princess by Vanessa Kelly


Vanessa has done it again!!  A love story between two people of two different worlds.  Lia Kincaid lives at Bluebell Cottage with her Grandmother and has the run of the estate Stonefell where she grew up.  Lia knows that she is a walking scandal.  She is one of the illegitimate offspring of a Royal Prince. Her mother and grandmother have been mistresses to powerful and wealthy men.  She has no intention of following them into that profession.  Then her grandmother's protector died and did not provide for them.  Now she has to find a way to provide for them both. 

Jack Easton's uncle has passed away and he must go to Stonefell to take over management of the estate and title of Marquess of Lendale.  The estate is nearly bankrupt from his Uncle's excesses and disregard for the condition of the people who depend on the estate for their livelihood.  As always when he visits the estate he always stops at Bluebell Cottage to see Lia and her grandmother.  Lia and Jack have been friends for ages.  Jack has to tell Lia and her grandmother that even though his uncle did not name them in his will, they will always have Bluebell Cottage and his financial support.

Lia knows that Jack cannot afford to support them.  She has decided to go to London and become an actor like her mother.  Jack follows her to London and mayhem commences.  

There are so many reasons why I love Vanessa's books.  Her writing is intelligent and insightful and witty.  Both Lia and Jack are complex, engaging characters that you will love.  This book is has the right mix of action, heart stopping danger and a journey that will take Lia and Jack to a HEA. While reading this book I could not see how Vanessa was going to resolve the problems of Jack's and Lia's class difference because it seemed impossible, there were too many obstacles to overcome, but she does it with a ingenious ending that will satisfy and delight. Vanessa is one of my go to authors when I want to read a well written love story, and all of her books are keepers that I will read over and over again.
