Book Review: The Secret Life of Prince Charming by Deb Caletti

Deb Caletti:

The Secret Life of Prince Charming

Quinn is surrounded by women with broken hearts. Between her mother, her aunt, and her grandmother, Quinn hears nothing but cautionary tales. Then she gets dumped and starts to wonder if there really are no good men. It doesn’t help when Quinn discovers that her selfish, womanizing father has stolen more from the women in his life than their hearts.

Quinn joins forces with the stepsisters she’s never met and sets out to right her father’s wrongs. Somewhere along the way, she ends up mending her own heart as well.

“Caletti’s gifts for voice and for conjuring multidimensional personalities are at their sharpest.” Publishers Weekly starred review.
