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

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

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.

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

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

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 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.

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'

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

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.

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.

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.

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. The romance was very ...more

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

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

As is shown in the first scene the book, Rosie isn't the best at the baking spells she longs to do. Nevertheless, she decides the cast a culinary spell to try to attract her prince charming, who already happens to be betrothed to another woman. Her best friend is a princess, so why shouldn't she take charge and have her own happily ever after?

I just love this book cover! It’s so pink, and girly, and pretty!
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

I'm pretty sure the tween-me would have loved this book. The old lady-me, not as much. I gave it four stars because I think it is good for the younger audience. I couldn't stand Rosie from the beginning. I did however, love Alastar. He was the bright spot in the story for me. His dry humor banter was the best.

I hadn't read the first in the series and while it was fine to read this one first there were a few holes that made me realize there must have been a book before this one as the reader is

When her best friend Eileen becomes engaged to the Dark Prince and invites her to the castle, Rosie is even more sure. Enter Prince Liam. He's charming, handsome, a prince, and in need of rescuing from an awful betrothal. A love potion can fix that Rosie thinks. Unfortunately, Alaster ('Ali'), her sometime accomplish, som ...more

Surprising and engaging story

Ok. At first, Rosie annoyed me. For a 22 year old, she seemed childish and shallow despite her intriguing wit and imagination. Thankfully, the further into the story we got, Rosie matured and by the end, her character had undergone a dramatic transformation. The journey there did not disappoint as it was filled with plot twists and was well-developed. I grew to love how she always lives in her own fairy tale world and the complexity reminds me of what childhood was l

Rosie was a refreshing heroine to me -- one who takes charge of her life and tries to make her dreams come true -- and not the typical helpless damsel in distress. She does place herself in the most interesting of predicaments, however, and I loved sharing the adventures she takes part in. The ending, in particular, fit her personality so well.

Aside from the superficial, there are deeper themes here that resonated with me as well. Such as the inability to see love when we are so caught-up in dai

Rosie is so dramatic and I love it. She creates fantastical tales of horrible things that could've happened or a magic tale. She's enthusiastic and in love with life, positive in almost all outcomes. Her thirst for adventure sparks my own and encourages me to always look on the bright side.

However, she's a little headstrong, deciding that something should be a current way and NOT the way life actually is. Determined to create her own happy ending and not just waiting for it to happen, is admira

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

Hilariously Entertaining!!

Rosie the main character is soooo over the top that I laughed through most of the book. But all funniness aside, the plot twists were perfectly timed and even though you could see clearly what Rosie couldn't see herself, her adventurous manner was fully entertaining.

I can almost imagine her being a character in the Princess Bride.

This book lives up to what you would expect from its blurb. It's quite funny. As you might expect, the love spell doesn't go quite right, and... well, Rosie discovers what she really wants in the process.

It's a little rare that an author can produce serious stories (the others in this series), and a quite funny story, but Peters pulls this off quite well.

This book is notable also in helping us know Prince Liam better, who turns out to be a really wonderful character in many ways. (He's the male
