A Book Review: Royally Scandalized- Kelle Z. Riley

Happy May!

Today’s book review is for Kelle Z Riley! I have reviewed one of her books before and a she very nicely shared a favourite family recipe for one of my Autumn Posts. If you know me we know I adore her so I was very excited to get the opportunity to review her newest book.

Kelle Z. Riley, writer, speaker, global traveler, Ph.D. chemist, and safety/martial arts expert has been featured in public forums that range from local Newspapers to National television. In addition to her works of fiction, a personal story was included in “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Living with Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias.”

Her fiction publications include cozy mysteries and contemporary romance.

In the Undercover Cat Mysteries a cupcake baking scientist turns sleuth—an much more. The Cupcake CaperShaken, Not PurredThe Tiger’s Tale, and Studying Scarlett the Grey, as well as free short stories set in the Undercover Cat world are available on Amazon or wherever books are sold.

In the Riches and Royals series, modern career women fall for princes-in-disguise, only to discover that “happily ever after” isn’t guaranteed. Can love turn their cautionary tale into a glittering fairy tale, or will their hearts shatter like glass slippers?

A former Golden Heart Finalist, Kelle resides in Chattanooga, TN. She is the past program chair and popular speaker for the Chattanooga Writer’s Guild, a member of Sisters in Crime, Romance Writers’ of America and various local chapters. When not writing, she can be found pursuing passions such as being a self defense instructor, a Master Gardener, and a full time chemist with numerous professional publications and U.S. patents.


Royally Scandalized

She never wanted to be a princess, but if the crown fits . . .

After her father’s fatal car crash, Jill stopped believing in dreams. Until she became unwittingly embroiled in the politics of the contemporary Kingdom of Melesia and fell in love with a prince. But her commitments to her family and his duty to his country stand in the way of a happily-ever-after. After all, fairy tales don’t come true in this day and age. Or do they?

My Review:

Where to begin! If you have been around All Things Gee you will know that I am in love with Cinderella! It is one of my favourite childhood stories, it is one of my newly favourite musicals and if you know me one of my favourite pantos at Christmas is Cinderella. So when I was given the opportunity to review this book I knew I had to jump on it.

There is something for everyone who has a little love for Cinderella in their heart within this book. I have been in a little bit of a reading slump and this book had a little bit of everything I wanted to read right now and it definitely got me out of my reading slump.

From the undertones of suspense and the chokehold the intrigue of this story had me in there was really something for everyone. The main story follows Phillip and Jill and their love story. We follow them falling in love and we watch their journey with all the obstacles along the way.

The issue I face reviewing this is that I could talk about it for hours but that would include so many spoilers and I cannot explain how much I think this is a book you have to read without spoilers ruining the best moments.

However I am going to put a slight disclaimer here if you get a little emotional when reading books sometimes you will need to get the tissues out and ready for the Epilogue.


Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Kelle a little note to you! Congratulations on yet another incredible book and Thank You for the opportunity to review this book.

Does this sound like something you would read?

Love Always,

Gee xoxo
