Rosie is fairly certain that there’s nothing wrong with putting a love spell on a foreign prince. At least she hopes there's not, because such a drastic measure is necessary in order for her to ensure that the perfect fairy tale romance she’s dreamt about her entire life includes her own prince charming. As the heroine in her story, she won’t be deterred by well-meaning fr ...more

Writing Spelled was by far the most fun I've ever had throughout my writing journey...until I had to revise it and try and tame Rosie's antics and imagination. But the difficult revision was worth it, for I'm very happy with how Rosie's story and growth turned out. I hope you enjoy experiencing Rosie's journey discovering her true love. ...more

Oh Rosie...Rosie, Rosie, Rosie. You are a very mischievous character, all in the name of true love though, right? When you believe in true love and know it's out there, how can you not try all within your powers to make sure you find your prince? Even if it means baking up a magical love potion. It's all for love, so nothing could go wrong. Right?....maybe?

If you read book one, Pathways, then you have already met Rosie and know that she is a dreamer, storyteller, baker and mischief maker. If yo

Wow. Rosie. I think I'm just going to say that I struggled with Rosie, she wasn't my favorite character, and leave it at that. I did love the continuation of characters in this book from the first. It gave me a sense of family and community.

The whole tone and voice of this book is young. It reads as more of a middle grade than young adult. Maybe that contributed to how I felt about Rosie? She felt very immature.

I enjoyed the first book in this series, Pathways, although I did mention in my revie

We first meet Rosie in Pathways and are introduced to her dreamy, silly ways. Rosie has to be this type of head-in-the-clouds character for this story to work, although she is slightly aggravating because of her stubborn foolishness.

Rosie has had big dreams of finding her own charming prince and will stop at nothing to get him, going as far as baking up the ultimate spell. I thought for sure her long-time friendship was going to be completely ruined because of her mischievous and disobedient w
I didn't like this one as much as the first, Pathways (Kingdom Chronicles #1) by Camille Peters but it was still a cute story. Rosie and Alaster were fun characters. I thought it was a little wordy/repetitive at times, but overall enjoyed it. Hope to see a story about Prince Liam!!!

Moral Note: Clean romance, clean language, no violence

I can imagine that Camille Peters had a great time writing this book. I found it to be written as a "tongue-in-cheek" novel. I found Rosie to be an "over-the-top" character and that her actions and words were not always in harmony. There were many moments that were very funny. She certainly knows how to get herself in a predicament.

The best part was the banter between Rosie and the guard Alastair. Prince Liam was a pleasant surprise. His part as the "spelled" victim in the book was funny. I can'

Main character is way too annoying with no real depth

My tween daughter wanted to read this series so I decided to read it first to make sure it was appropriate. Oh my goodness, I have never disliked a main character more. Rosie was nothing but a whiny, selfish, and delusional pest. And the people around her, too indulging. Aiden should have laid down the law a lot sooner, and her so called best friend didn't act anything like a best friend and stop Rosie's delusions. Honestly, there was no reaso

Camille Peters writes a sweet story. Unfortunately, I just could not relate to the heroine Rosie. She presents as someone who is REALLY young for her age. While Ms. Peters intends this novel for a teen/young adult audience, it may be more suited for a pre-teen audience as Rosie may resonate more with them than with an older audience.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I love books that seem like a fairy tale! This one does that so well. It just feels timeless. There’s enchanted water, spells, and a great hero and heroine.

I loved Rosie. She was in Camille Peters’ first book, Pathways. She’s Eileen’s best friend. The book opens with her not having any idea what happened to Eileen. Then the unthinkable happens. Eileen is able to write from the palace and she’s about to be married to the prince. I loved the way this book connects with Pathways.

Oooh my. Love this newest installment in Camille Peters' world! Like Pathways, the first book, it's a real mix of fairytale and fantasy which I really like - fantasy with all the beauty and magic intact. :D Her characters are nuanced and realistic, developing and deepening as the book goes further on. Even the two main characters from the first book have a side story in this book, which I really like! It's written from Rosie's perspective, and oh my does she have such an entertaining - and often ...more

This is a phenomenal story within a story. Rosie takes a little while to understand and appreciate as she comes off naive, but she really lives inside her own story, making her own chapters. She also fights for what she believes is her happily ever after, only its not. This book literally had me laughing out loud with tears running down my face. It is so hilarious at times. I really like how Rosie's prince handles the whole situation. If you need a break, step into this uniquely crafted world fo ...more

Honestly, this is the most fun I've had reading a book in a long time. The main character, Rosie, is fun and hilariously flawed. She has a wild imagination and sees what she wants to see, which may be different from reality, creating an interesting dynamic in the story as she goes with what she *thinks* is happening. The banter between her and her love interest is fun and entertaining. Being emotionally connected to the main character was fun so it was hard to watch her stubbornly refuse to see ...more

LOVED this!! Rosie’s antics had me rolling and cringing. There was plenty of crying as well. Though that could have just been me needing to expel some emotional stress. Rosie reminded me of my 5 year old. Full of dreams and head way in the clouds. I love how Ali played along with all her insanity. Really fun book! Though, I think if it hadn’t ended when it did Rosie may have reached the point of unlikeable. Can’t wait for the next one.

The first book was okay but this one blew my socks off! I wasn't even sure I wanted to continue the series and I'm certainly glad I did!!
Rosie was in the first book as the adorably fairytale minded best friend to Eileen, who found her happily ever after with the Dark Prince, Aiden.
Now, we are fortunate to join Rose in her own adventure. What an adventure it is too!! Rosie is invited to the palace to be with Eileen and prepare for the wedding. Determined to find her own prince, Rosie's i

Ooh, I LOVE this story!! I was sucked in and had to binge read it so I could find out what happened; I thoroughly enjoyed reading it!! I love the realism in the story and how there weren't just conflicts with the main character but the others as well. It was all resolved so beautifully!
Also, this book is hilarious!! There were so many witty lines that just fit PERFECTLY!
Prince Liam is an absolute hoot and Alastar is a miiiighty fine knight in shinning armor!! I loved Rosie's growth and maturit

Note: I did receive a complimentary copy of this book. But the thoughts, opinions, etc. are entirely my own.

I didn't like this book as much as I did the first, and I attribute that primarily to the main character, Rosie. Which is tough because the rest of the story was fine. I liked how the author used 'The Frog Prince' as an inspiration, with this story as a loose retelling rather than a literal retelling. The plot was solid, the dialogue was decent and the story kept moving forward at a steady

the book is a very good second book in the series. The mail character really annoyed me for the firwt part of the book because I thought her conceited , stubborn and unwilling to see how her actions might affect anyone else. But after a few surprises, everything comes together in a very nice way.

This book made me laugh out loud, repeatedly. I loved Rosie's interactions with Alastar. I read an early Advance Reader Copy and in it Rosie was a bit annoying at times, but the author said she went back and fixed that, so I look forward to rereading this book to see Rosie presented in a way that will make me love her more. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading the rest of the series as the books come out.

Oh, Bliss! (Sorry, I couldn't help myself)

I was reluctant to say this until now but really, the best books are the ones you find randomly, hidden among others and the ones you suddenly choose in the impulse of the moment.
This is the way I chose to read this book. I had it on my self lying for far too long and then suddenly I just started it, without reading the description, without thinking about what I was doing. And I am not regretting it.

I really had fun reading this second book in the series. Rosie is a hoot, and her dialogue between herself and Alastar are golden. The highlights of the book. Rosie is quite dead-set on getting her Prince Charming but nothing goes as planned, for better or worse. Her antics get quite ridiculous at times. Sometimes I laughed along with her scheming and others I cringed in anticipation of outcome. Yet, I kept going out of eagerness to see how The Story of Rosie would turn out.

I can't get over with this story! It seems that I will be more glad to be a damsel in distress than to be a princess if you have a gallant knight.


Ali isn't the princely guy you'd hoped for but I'm sure you'll fall for him. A knight in shining armor, and Rosie! I literally cringe and get secondhand embarrassment from her but as the story

This is an adorable fairy tale-esque book! It is a frog prince retelling, though it is a very loose retelling with only a few elements of the story.

The audiobook version was really well done. While I really enjoyed the main guy, the main girl Rosie vacillated between endearing and annoying for me. Then again, she was at times endearing and annoying and exasperating for the other characters. Rosie's head is literally in the clouds. She deludes herself with her imagination, seeing things that are

Scampered? Once to describe the way in which the character moves toward some place is okay... twice, even, would be acceptable... however the book is written in first person and uses scampered to describe the way the heroine moves. I just can’t imagine any girl describing the way she moved through the world as “scampered”...

Honestly, this book was just... horrible is too strong... but it was definitely written by a novice. I was hoping the second book in the series would show some improvement i

Be the hero in your own story

I laughed so much throughout this story. Rosalina "Rosie" is a creative lover of fairytales intent on making her own happy ending come true... Her flights of fancy delighted me even as I watched her dig her own pits with some of the choices she made in trying to make the prince fall in love with her. I also loved the hero of this story, guard Alastar seems so solumn but with a humor streak and a willingness to be a part of her stories and join the adventure. Prince

Such a fun and sweet book! An adorable romance for sure. Rosie is a lover of stories with a wild imagination. Who say's cursing a dashing prince to fall in love with you is a bad idea? An irritable guard, that's who. In this book you will be taken on an adventure filled with villainous chortling, frogs and facing and fixing the mistakes you may have made.

It's been over a year since I reviewed Pathways, the first book in Camille Peters' Kingdom Chronicles series. Though it wasn't my favorite, I decided to check out the next two books from a box set she released recently with the first three in the series. Spelled tells the story of Rosie, the best friend of the protagonist in Pathways. I remember I found her mildly irritating for trying to force Eleanor to fall in love when she told her repeatedly that she wasn't interested in a relationship. Unf ...more

Y'all, I can handle a lot of sappiness. This, however, goes beyond my limits. Not only that, but I had other issues with this book. I don't have time for a full rant, but here's a list...
- The heroine could have sweet and charming. Instead, she was thoroughly annoying. Her constant need for fairy tales was a cute idea that turned into a nightmare. How can one person insist on having their life mimic a fictional story so much?! They aren't real. For someone who supposedly is a lovely girl, this b

Anyway, this was a cute story. Rosie is the best friend of Eileen from the first book Pathways, and she gets her own love story in this book. She has a very imaginative brain and is a lover of fairy tales. Basically the synopsis is that now that Eileen is married to Prince Aiden, Rosie gets to visit and live in the palace for long extended trips. While there, she meets Prince Liam and decides that he would be the perfect prince fo
