It’s summer and what better time for a beach read than right now? To celebrate, we’re giving Princess Charming, my novel that takes place on a seven-day Caribbean cruise, the special sale treatment. From June 3-9, the ebook edition, normally $4.99, will be available at all e-tailers for 99 cents – a very sweet deal if you ask me!
Princess Charming is about three best friends (the “three blonde mice,” they call themselves), all divorced, who take vacations together every year. This time they decide to take a week-long cruise aboard the Princess Charming, a ship not unlike Carnival or Royal Caribbean. (I’d love to give the book to all those poor passengers that were stranded in the recent cruise ship disasters. They probably need a good laugh.)
The plot thickens when the heroine, Elaine, overhears a ship-to-shore conversation between two men. The connection is full of static and it breaks up toward the end, but she does find out that somebody’s ex has hired a hit man to kill one of the blonde mice on the ship. Elaine’s a little neurotic to begin with, but this news nearly puts her over the edge – literally. Which of the women is about to be murdered and which of the men on the ship has been hired to do the deed? It couldn’t be Simon, the hot guy she’s fallen for, could it?
Michael and I took a seven-day cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Sovereign of the Seas in order to research Princess Charming, and while I’ll never be a “cruise person,” I did get lots of juicy material for the book. I hope it’s as much fun to read as it was to write.
