Summary, etc.:
"An ordinary summer goes royally awry when a prince and princess move next door, bringing their handsome bodyguard with them, from New York Times bestselling author Karina Halle. Piper Evans: elementary school teacher by day--avid romance reader and anonymous podcaster by night. She lives a quiet, reclusive life, taking care of her mother, who lives with mental illness; avoiding her regrettable ex, who bartends in town; and trying to make inroads in the tight-knit island community that still sees her, five years in, as an outsider. And she's happy with how things are--really--until British royals rent the property next to hers and their brooding bodyguard decides she's a security threat. Piper quickly realizes that one person's fairy tale is an ordinary woman's nightmare as a media frenzy takes over the island and each run-in with Harrison Cole is hotter and more confusing than the last. But beneath Harrison's no-nonsense exterior lies a soft heart, one that could tempt a woman who's sworn off attachments into believing in white knights. But when Piper finds herself smack in the middle of a royal scandal that rocks the island, she'll need more than Harrison's strong arms to shield her--she'll have to do a little rescuing herself. With careers, hearts, and friendships on the line, Piper and Harrison will have to decide what they're willing to give up for a chance at their own happily ever after"-- Provided by publisher.

    British royalty, with similarities to Harry and Meghan, and their hot bodyguard move into the mansion next door to schoolteacher and secret romance novel podcaster Piper Evans. On this small island in British Columbia, Piper shares her tiny home with her mother, who is coping with mental illness. Piper discovers that her new royal neighbors are actually quite friendly, but it's the brooding, tattooed bodyguard, Harrison Cole, she can't stop thinking about. As she teases out the sweetness beneath his tough exterior, she becomes enamored, but paparazzi linger nearby, always waiting for any whiff of scandal. Piper's sassy, fun personality shines in Halle's romcom, and the heat level rises pleasingly in the latter half. The open talk about mental illness and therapy is refreshing, though it can feel a bit too defining for Piper's mom, and is nearly a plot device. Just the same, Harrison is a swoon-worthy hero, and Piper's finding confidence and speaking up for herself are enchanting. A charming, sexy, and fun read. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
