Number Two in the "Princess" series from Ms. George. It picks up where the first one left off. The author focuses on one of the 12 dancing princesses following their release from the dancing curse that had been placed on them.

Princess Poppy is visiting a neighboring kingdom and is included as one of the eligible young women for Prince Christian to be introduced to. Poppy is still a bit traumatized by the experiences she shared with her sisters, to the extent that she has nightmares centered around that time in her life.
Those experiences make her hypersensitive to any situations that appear to be unnatural or unlikely and there are numerous occurrences that begin to set Poppy on edge.

Poppy has a sharp wit and something of a sarcastic bent that makes her an interesting and attractive young woman to Christian. Along comes a mysterious young woman who is intent on luring the young prince into marriage and is Poppy's rival for Christian's affections. Before too long, we discover that the interloping young woman is functioning under a curse from a wicked and bitter woman who has morphed into a witch.

This story incorporates elements of the Cinderella story i.e., glass slippers, godmothers, magic and hasty exits from balls at the stroke of midnight, to name a few. But there are enough twists and turns in this tale as well as the "spunky" Poppy to make this story a clean, fun read.
