Review of The Tourist of Zenda

The Tourist of Zenda

The Tourist of Zenda is a contemporary romance novella by Christine Merrill.

The peaceful country of Seravano is best known for its spotted goats, and the impending royal wedding between Crown Prince Paolo Zara and the beautiful but flighty actress, Sylphine Jones. But when Sylphine gets two black eyes a week before the wedding, the prince needs to find a stand in for the engagement documentary.

Enter Dana Miller, unsuspecting American tourist and a dead ringer for Sylphine. Dana wanted a romantic European adventure. She’s about to get more than she bargained for.

This book is deeply set in fantasy and no I don’t mean the witches and vampires kind of fantasy. I mean the you have to be able to put aside reality to think a story like this could ever actually happen, kind of fantasy.

It’s sort of a modern day fairy tale about an every day girl and a modern day prince.

It’s a short and sweet story that will put a smile on your face.

I can’t really think of a single negative thing to say. The story wasn’t bad.

It was a decent love story with a happy ending. Wasn’t the best book I ever read, or even particularly memorable. But for a short romance, you can’t go wrong with this one.
