The Royal Decoy by Heather FrostRating: 4/5 stars
Review: This book was super unique and the story is fresh. It's something that I have never read before. It was like a royal mystery novel! This book is about a princess decoy, Clare, falling in love with her bodyguard but has to protect her family. The author's writing was enjoyable and I loved how she included rare POVs of Bennick, the bodyguard, also some other special characters. The author's story flowed and I loved all the actions she added to this story. The book was well-paced of course and didn't end off in a cliffhanger.
The characters were enjoyable and I felt connected to them though there was a part where I thought Grayson's part wasn't needed in the book which I guess it will develop along into the second book. I loved the slow build-up relationship between Clare and Bennick because they are perfect for each other also they care so much for their loved ones. The author added a lot of information both personality and physical traits so it's not hard to imagine how the characters look like.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of Grayson's part. Even though it will come in handy for the 2nd book, I felt like there were too many chapters of his story that could have been explained in 2-3 chapters. That is the only problem I had with this book but other than that I totally recommend this book to everyone especially those who want a fresh royalty read.
