I really wanted to like this book. I finished it in the hope it would redeem itself, but the further I went the less I liked it.
Without ruining anything there were two things I sincerely disliked-
The conversations between characters were poorly written. It seemed like the author was trying to use medieval language, but would often lapse into modern tongue- this made some of the conversations hard to follow and made all of them sound insipid. With regards to the conversational aspect of the book-

So, I borrowed this book from the library as something quick to read. It wasn't bad, but it also just wasn't very good.

This seems like exactly the sort of story I would love: romance, mistaken identities, princesses! I was never able to connect with the characters and their personalities were flat, there was nothing redeeming or endearing about them. The heroine wasn’t motivated by anything and had no spine or spunk in her.
