Welcome to my review of 'The Shadow Princess" by Mary Hart Perry.

 THE SHADOW PRINCESS, by Mary Hart Perry
To catch one of history’s most notorious killers, a princess risks losing her family, her life—and her heart…
London, 1888: A year after Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee terror mounts in the city's slums.  A killer has butchered two prostitutes, the crimes brutal even by London’s hardened standards.  Rumors of the murders reach Princess Vicky, daughter of Queen Victoria and grieving widow of the German Emperor Frederick III.  When her niece Princess Maud visits, she brings with her even worse news--the Metropolitan Police have a suspect. It’s Vicky’s nephew, Crown Prince Eddy. Desperate to clear her family's name, Vicky rushes back to England.
Detective Inspector Thomas Edmondson believes there is a royal cover-up behind the killings. He will stop at nothing to expose the truth and bring a murderer to justice before he can kill again.  But when Vicky joins him in searching for the man who will become known as Jack the Ripper, neither of them foresee the overpowering attraction that will draw together the royal and the commoner—or the danger their love puts them in.

The Review
This book was exactly what I needed! I enjoyed it so much, and in the middle of an extremely busy week, I needed a book that I could just get lost into. And that is what this book does. The author has a brilliant way of telling a story that you don't realize, or care, how much time has passed. The only thing that was on my mind was what was going to happen next. I needed to know, and it became one of those walking while reading situations, because I didn't want to waste a single second of available reading time! :)

This is a very exciting tale, it pulls you right into the story.  Mary Hart Perry’s descriptions paint a very vivid and real picture for her audience. I love the Wild Princesses series and The Shadow Princess will certainly not disappoint! Mary has done a wonderful job in portraying the Princess’s emotions and determination.  

The book is a brilliant, well written novel that I`d definitely recommend to anyone and everyone.
5 Stars all the way!!!
