    Full Review: Thank you so much to NetGalley and Disney-Hyperion for giving me the chance to read and review this super cute novel by Stephanie Kate Strohm! What an adorable book about a younger sister dragged along to Scotland for her sister’s wedding to a Scottish lord, which, to her dismay, is being filmed for a reality TV series “Prince in Disguise.”Gosh, I just loved the chemistry between Dylan and Jamie. From the first moment they meet...

    An Adorable Holiday Slump-buster!I was SO excited to be approved for this Disney-Hyperion title on Net Galley, and it did not disappoint!If you’re in the mood for a fast, slump-buster read–whether to get you back into reading or to kick-start you into the holiday spirit–this is it! I loved Dylan immediately. She’s the awkward, self-conscious, shy younger sister of a beauty-pageant winner, dragged into a high-profile world she never wanted...

    *Thanks so much to the publisher for sending me an e-ARC via Netgalley!!*Okay, this book was adorable and fun AND HAD THE BEST DISNEY REFERENCES. I was dying with each witty Disney reference/comment that was made, and Strohm definitely has confirmed that she is a master of adorable, cheesey goodness - my favorite contemporary kind of novel. This story did drag in a few parts, and I started to get really bored - however it was cute for the most pa...

    Prince in Disguise is so much fun! The cover tricked me a bit and I thought this was going for be more of a middle grade story, but it's actually a YA full of heart and hilarity. Dylan is tired of being in the older sister's shadow, yet not at all interested in being in the spotlight. When her sister lands a spot in a bachelor-like reality TV show, Dylan does her best to steer clear and stay away from the cameras. However when her sister wins the...
  • Leah
    A cute, fun contemporary full of Scotland, medieval castles, and a prince in disguise - this was exactly the fluffy read I had hoped for!
  • Mary H
    Absolutely lovely. Fluffy, fun, sweet, swoony, snowy. Give me ALL the YA holiday romance.
  • Courtney
    This really is just a Hallmark Christmas movie meets the Bachelorette in a YA form. While I enjoy a good Hallmark Christmas movie, I don't think they have enough substance for an enjoyable novel. Just a bunch of fluff. Also, the at least five different Disney movies referenced seemed a little self-aggrandizing as Disney-Hyperion is the publisher of this book.
  • Anne Brown
    This was a really fun, guilty-pleasure type read. To me, it was on par with The Selection prewedding if it was being told from the POV of America's younger sister, but in modern day Scotland rather than dystopian America (so basically just no rebel attacks). Yes, it was cheesy; yes, it was predictable, but c'mon, it is based on reality TV. I liked Dylan and Jamie's characters a lot, and their nerdy references constantly made me smile. I read an A...

    Hoo boy. For a good three quarters of this book I was dead-set on giving it a one star rating and never looking at it again. But that last 1/4 brought some redeeming qualities. Prince in Disguise oddly read like a cross between Austenland and The Selection, but in a younger YA kind of way. It was... cute, I guess, and I rather enjoyed all the Disney and musical references, but there were also two main problems for me: I did not like the main char...
  • Brittani
    This was delightful. It was exactly what I needed when I needed it. I was wanting extremely charming pure fluff and that's 100% what this book is, it's beautiful. I laughed out loud multiple times and I was just so happy during the entire read. I really liked the individual characters and all of their interactions - (just about) everyone is more than their stereotype and I really liked the many layers of each character and their many relationship...
  • Yiota
    Solid 3.5 - a fun and quirky book, reading like a mashup of a reality dating show and the movie Prince and Me. Dylan and family joins her sister Dusty in Scotland, where they're filming her wedding to a royal family member. Dylan, our funny and normal teenager, meets Jamie, friend of the groom, and many funny moments and literacy references ensue. This is a light book, something easy to read over a break. You'll guess the plot twists a mile away,...

    This was such a cute book! Full review to come closer to release date.
  • Valentina Markasović
    Thank you so much to NetGalley and Disney Hyperion for providing me with an ARC e-copy of this book!Dylan, the protagonist, is everything you would expect from a YA heroine - clumsy, less pretty and less accomplished than her sister, (camera-)shy, runs away from problems, etc. But she is also a lot of things I didn't expect: a runner, quite tall (why do I so rarely find a book with a tall heroine?), surprisingly decisive - one of the storylines e...
  • Portia
    I am a huge fan of Stephanie’s and this is her best book yet, in my opinion.Her voice shines through in the humor and nerdy references that fill this book. There are so many literary references that made me shout “YAAASSSS” throughout my empty apartment when I was reading.The combination of a fun Scottish setting and an intrusive reality show leads to tons of laughs and silly situations. The characters are all great and incredibly realistic...
  • Margaret
    Full disclosure: I’m already a big fan of author Stephanie Kate Strohm, so when the publishers and NetGalley (thank you both!) provided a review copy in exchange for my honest feedback, I already knew I was in for a treat. Prince in Disguise is a joy to read. From the moment we meet Dylan (powering through a saltine-eating challenge while her best friend “coaches” her Lombardi-style), I already knew she was my kinda girl. Dylan is goofy and...

    This book was a cute and quick read. The introverted and extremely private Dylan has the misfortune of having an extremely famous and extroverted sister who has ended up winning the heart of her "prince" on a reality dating show. Now her family and she are stuck in front of the camera at the lead up to her sister's wedding in a Scottish castle. But her meeting with her soon to be brother-in-law's friends/groomsman is not as uneventful as she wish...
  • SouthernTodayGoneTomorrow
    Written by Stephanie Kate Strohm, this novel follows Dylan, the sister to a reality TV star and Miss Mississippi. Who is getting, very publicly, married to a Scottish Lord. And of course there is a young gentleman for Dylan as well.This was a sweet story that was a pleasure to read. The characters were odd and mostly shallow, so this isn't the next great novel, but it was so enjoyable. Very pleasant to read a light hearted story. A love story ap...
  • Kaylee
    Super cute story! The basic premise is that Dylan's sister, Dusty, was a contestant on a Bachelor-style reality show called Prince in Disguise. It's now time for Dusty to marry her "prince," which means that the family not only has to travel to Scotland over Christmas break for this televised wedding monstrosity, but now Dylan (awkward, oh, so awkard Dylan) has to deal with the cameras following her every move. Things start looking up when she me...

    Dylan finds herself swept off the Scotland for her sister's destination wedding. Her sister Dusty won Scottish laird Ronan's hand on the Prince in Disguise, a reality show, and now they will be filming all that leads up to the wedding. Nothing could make camera-shy Dylan less happy. Of course being left at the train station by the best man and rescued by cute Jamie gives her adventure quite a start.Dylan and Jamie become good friends as they both...

    Dylan is tired of being forced into situations unsuited by her big sister's fame, but now the situation has climaxed because her sister is attending a reality show called Prince in Disguise and found that she has been able to snatch the heart of the noble Ronan and they will all go to the UK for the wedding of the year under the watchful eye of millions of fans. Dylan has no choice but to go and it's in that hour when it appears the sweet knight ...

    Though I am not reading this during winter, I can imagine being cozily wrapped in my favorite blanket with a hot cup of cocoa, reading this book in one sitting. This story is about a family of three thrust into the spotlight by reality T.V. and having to deal with the ever present eye of the camera, even in the most uncomfortable of situations. The main character, Dylan, is awkward but hilarious as she attempts to navigate her, pageant queen, sis...
  • Gladys
    This was my first book by Stephanie Kate Strohm and I have to say I am very pleasantly happy I read this book. It is the story of Dylan a Mississipi girl who gets tangled in her sisters reality show wedding. Dylan has to put up with not only pressure from her sister who is extremely beautiful and vindictive, from her mother who is quite but fierce and from Pamela the shows producer who is not afraid of extortion in order to get the right drama fi...
  • Sarah
    Thank you netgalley for this ARC in exchange for my honest opinon.I really enjoyed this adorable book and the entire time I was reading it I kept thinking it would be the cutest holiday film! Dylan has been dragged to Scotland to watch her reality tv star sister Dusty marry the Lord she fell in love with while filming "Prince in Disguise". Dylan isn't interested in going and is sick of living in the shadow of her reality star perfect sister. When...
  • Mary Clare
    Full review!Dylan's sister is getting married but it's no ordinary wedding. The happy couple met while filming a reality TV show and they'll marry on a reality TV show. In Scotland. On Christmas. Dylan, who has never been much for the spotlight, suddenly finds herself in a foreign country, in a castle, with a crush and cameras following her around everywhere. Dylan searches for ways to find the reality in reality TV, which proves difficult.I love...
