A ROYAL MASQUERADE | BOOK REVEIW

ARM

Greetings, friend! I’ll be sharing my review for A Royal Masquerade today! You can find my book spotlight HERE (don’t miss it! There is a GIVEAWAY!)!

BLURB

book cover

Burndee can barely tolerate the mischievous Prince Colin, but the two of them are invariably thrown together in a way that keeps them at one another’s throats.

While attending a noblewoman’s wedding, Burndee and Colin’s private feud comes to a climax when Burndee loses his temper and does the unthinkable.  With Prince Colin unable to attend to his royal duties and Burndee bound by an inconvenient spell, can the two of them work together long enough to unsnarl the mysterious goings-on around them?

A madcap and magical retelling of The Goose Girl from a unique perspective.

REVIEW

FTC DISCLOSURE: I received a free ecopy of this book. A positive review was not required. These are my honest thoughts and opinions.

A Royal Masquerade is like a giant cake—sweet, beautiful, and full of delicious surprises!

The writing style and setting were delightfully vivid and entertaining. Just like watching a play or being right there with the character! I could just imagine the garden and palace settings, as well as smell the baked goods. The writing style and setting snagged me in and I loved it to bits.

The characters of A Royal Masquerade were my favorite part. Ms. Tebo has a true gift for being friends with characters who are spirited, funny, and life-like! All too often, fiction nowadays belittles princesses and weakens male characters. ARM was like a glass of fresh lemonade because it had characters who didn’t fall flat or cliche. Ever.

As usual, my favorite was Burndee (maybe because I relate so much to his grumpiness), and Colin was as fantastic as ever. Ella and Cynthia are two lasses that every little girl needs to read about! And MECK. Ha, yes, I skipped the rest of the memorable cast because this furry dude needs billions of hugs. I could almost feel his soft fur and ears!

As for the rest of the cast and plot line, I was amazed. Things were so well woven and hinted, it truly was a joy ride. I was surprised sometimes at the plot’s brilliance. Even though this book was not ‘plot-driven’ because the author wished to show that people are silly and not every book needs to be serious, it was still a focused story! It had character development (EEP!) while also making me laugh.

Overall, I loved this book. A strong 5/5 stars. I look forward to reading it aloud to my young nieces!

SEEK BLOG TOUR SIGN UPS

It is time! It is time! Seek is going to be published this December. God is soo good, folks, because when I first wrote Seek, I didn’t plan on publishing. I wrote to seek God’s face and to heal. Now, over two years later, Seek is being published, and I need you! =D The tour will go December 1st through December 7th.

Seek does not have a solid publication date because I’ve seen friends struggle to get their paperback copies proofed on time with the changes with KDP. Despite Amazon’s new challenges, I am praying very hard to have Seek published December 1st. At the very least, the Kindle should be up by then. 😉

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP!

SO, yes, sign ups are open… =D If you sign up, *big hug*. Even if you can’t sign up, which I totally understand, I’d appreciate you still sharing the word! With Christmas coming, this book will make a perfect gift. It’s got:

  • Action (who doesn’t like car chases?)
  • Humor (and not just from that Third Wheel Character, ha)
  • Fight scenes. Years of karate pays off with writing fight scenes, y’all.
  • It might break the fourth wall but you’ll have to read it to find out, mwuaha.
  • COLD WEATHER
  • Strong family relationships
  • Not-so-strong family relationships
  • Pain!
  • Lots of God’s saving Love!

 

Thank you so much for dropping by, and signing up, if you did! 😉 This tour is going to be a blast and I cannot wait to celebrate with y’all. ♥

God bless,

– Angela

 

ARE YOU AS EXCITED AS I AM? DID YOU SIGN UP? YA KNOW YA WANT TO! 

SEEK COVER REVEAL!

At long last, my novel Seek has an official COVER. I am so excited, y’all. I’ve been working on Seek for over two years now. It is truly insane to look back at how far this story has come.

First, thanks to my siblings, for coming with me on the photo shoot and being riots to work with. 😉 And big thanks to Kellyn Roth. She did an AMAZING job and is a truly amazing friend. ♥

And now, the cover. . .

 

SEEK COVER GOOD

Seek is currently with my amazing editor, Abigayle Claire, and I’m soo excited. 😀 Seek will be releasing early December. I have yet to set a release date because KDP is whacky and I worry I won’t be able to stick with a date. I will update y’all when it is to be expected and when it is published. 😉

Thank you so much for dropping by. I hope you’re as excited as I am for Seek’s launch, haha! Blog tour sign ups will be posted soon. EEP!

God bless,
