‘Falling for Prince Charles’ by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

ffpc lblSTORY: Daisy Silverman has always been obsessed with His Royal Highness, Prince Charles. When the underachieving 30-something cleaning lady wins a million dollars, she follows her lifelong dream to go to London.

Once there, she meets Prince Charles—the real Prince Charles. Through a series of misunderstandings, the Royal Family doesn’t realize that Daisy’s Jewish or that she’s spent her life up to the elbows in the wrong kind of toilet water. By the time they do, Daisy is in love with Charles, Charles is in love with Daisy, and the Queen’s white gloves are off.

REVIEW: 1999

Daisy Silverman has always fantasized about being the Princess of Wales when in fact, she is simply a maid for the Klean Kottage Klub or KKK. Yes, that acronym has caused her a great deal of embarrassment.

One day, she stops by her usual little store to pick up some things for dinner. The cashier, Bonita, with whom she likes to chat, encourages her to buy a lottery ticket. When she wins, she is thrilled. That is when Daisy takes Bonita and heads to London. With her payout of $50,000 per year for life, she plans to stay until the money runs out.

As they enjoy the sightseeing, Daisy runs into someone who invites her to an Embassy party where she meets Prince Charles. They chat and he is quite taken with her. This leads to her being invited to stay at some of the royal residences where she meets and spends time with the different members of the royal family.

Her escapades and gossipy descriptions of the family members is rather humorous. The words the author uses in writing the story are funny at times.

I enjoyed the story up to a point but found that, for me, it was a bit overdone which means I began to get bored with the constant dialogue used. However, I am sure other readers will find it a total hoot.
