I liked this book. It took some getting used to but I really enjoyed it by the end. The heroine, Lucy, seems quite a bit immature in the beginning of the story but slowly matures throughout the book. She's hired to do one job -- be someone else for a few weeks. Not just someone, but a famous someone. Here's where it takes your imagination to go with the book. Lucy doesn't look anything like the girl Elizabeth until she gets a super nice makeover. She learns to walk and talk like a p ...more
I can't wait to write the next one and stir up more trouble. And wait until you hear the Audio version narrated by Lesley Fogle. It is hilarious! And a huge thanks to Regina Wamba at Mae I Design for a freaking adorbs book cover.
This book is just a little naughty but a whole lot of fun.
The writing on the cover spoils a major surprise, which really sucked. I t all seemed so designed to appeal to the not so smart (sorry). ...more
*Thank you to the author for the review copy*
If I had to compare this book to one other, it would definitely be the Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot… but then again, I like this book more than those!
At first I found it hard to get into the style of writing. The book was written very much through the voice of the main character, called Lucy. And well, she seemed at first to have a childish way of thi ...more
You'll never guess what her part time job entails and she can't tell you because she's under cont ...more
This book was incredibly charming, witty, and fun! Pamela DuMond is an incredibly talented writer, and I am so glad I got a chance to read this book. The plot was great, the writing perfect and the characters were hilarious! I couldn't have been more please, from the very first page I was hooked in and fell in love with Lucy.
Lucy is bold, outspoken, self reliant and always getting herself into situations that aren't ideal. She loses her job, because ...more
You know those books where the MC annoys the hell out of you, and it makes the whole book sound like mouldy cheese? This was not one of these books.
The MC Lucy, was one badass heroine in my books.
A few nights ago, after I had finished Part-Time Princess, I googled "How to become a princess" and found a quiz on whether I'm a Princess on the inside or not. Apparently, I'm not really fit to be a Princess, but you know what, I was one of those kids that when they grew up, I wanted to be a g ...more

Cue a vague add on Daveslist, the oddest interview ever, and a couple of weeks of training for the new job. To impersonate Lady Elizabeth Billingsley for a couple of weeks until she can tie up ...more
edit. Full review
‘Part-time Princess’ is the perfect feel-good book! There was just something about it that ticked all the boxes for the perfect fun, exciting and intriguing New Adult book, and I honestly felt so light after finishing it, that it was like I was walking on air for a week af ...more
Part-Time Princess is a romantic comedy that is part Princess Diaries and part imposter story, (an example is slipping my mind). It was a very cute, very funny and overall very fun read. It is just the kind of light read that you can escape into for a couple of hours and come out the other end feeling happy. It wasn't perfect, but it was a lot of fun. And sometimes that is just what I am looking for in a book.
I loved ...more

Part-Time Princess by Pamela DuMond is the first book in the Ladies In Waiting series.
As a reader, I have an addiction to all things royal and princess-y. I love those Cinderella themed stories that just put a smile on your face and brighten your day when you read them. Part-Time Princess was one of those stories.
I absolutely loved everything about this book! I loved Lucy's wit and humor and how she went from a struggling waitress to a lady royal in a few mere weeks! The love triangle bet ...more

Part-time Princess was a fun, easy read that had me laughing out loud and enjoying every minute of the story.

Throw in a two handso ...more
This is a very light read and humorous. I really want to say young adult genre would be perfect but it would need to cut a few "tusk" comments, "romps" and the f-bombs. For an adult read, it was really unbelievable and a bit under-developed for my tastes. We meet Lucy who accepts a part-time gig to impersonate a Lady who is being pursued by a prince for political reasons. While she navigates this new life to hide her true identity, she meets someone she falls in love with. Unfo ...more
When I came across this book and read the description I was intrigued. It sounded like it would be interesting.
It was! It was cute and funny and just sorta a feel good read. It is however VERY unbelievable but hey its fiction.
All my complaints would be in the unbelievability of MANY things throughout the story but I'm not sure if that was the point or not so I don't really want to complain if they were meant to be unrealistic.
I would recommen ...more
