In this eagerly anticipated companion novel to Royal Target and Royal Secrets, readers are invited back to the shimmering Mediterranean paradise of Meridia, where two royal weddings in a year are more than stressful—they’re deadly . . .
Lovely Meridian native Noelle Saldera yearns for adventure, but as the daughter of palace servants, working at Prince Stefano’s royal wedding may be as exciting as her life will get. But her options change drastically when she finds herself in the unlikely position of diffusing a bomb at the ceremony and being enlisted as the newest member of Meridian Intelligence—another wedding is in the works, and there can be no more close calls when Prince Stefano’s brother, Garrett, walks down the aisle.
The bombing attempt at the first royal wedding leaves few clues as to the assailant’s identity. Desperate for answers, Meridian officials enlist CIA agent Jeremy Rogers to prevent a repeat occurrence at the upcoming nuptials. The beauty of the plan: the bride is Jeremy’s sister, so his cover is foolproof. What no one could anticipate is the instant connection between Jeremy and Noelle. Now, with their hearts on the line, the pair must work together to stop a seemingly unstoppable enemy before time runs out.
I'm the type of person that doesn't mind reading the same book again and again. I also like my series books to continue on with other characters so I feel like I'm part of the "family". I think because of those reasons I really enjoyed Abramson's newest novel Royal Brides. If you are familiar at all with her work, you are getting what you will expect to get. And if you like it, that's not a bad thing. If you are expecting something different this might not be the book for you. Because of past characters playing a huge role in this book, I'm not sure I would classify it as a stand alone novel. It would be best to be familiar with the other two novels in the series before starting this one.
Those disclaimers aside, it was a fun book to read, and the mystery portion wasn't obvious and made for a "oh!" moment. Noelle and Jeremy are great, but the secondary characters really made this book for me. They are the ones that make it feel like family, and I love that when I read my books :)
If you are a fan of Traci Hunter Abramson you will like this book, and I'd recommend you give it a try. It was a fast, clean, enjoyable read.
