Meet Me In Monaco: Book Review

Grace Kelly will forever be an icon of mine from beauty to grace to being married into the royal Grimaldi family, she embodies everything I have always dreamed of. 🤩

Also if you’re a Gossip Girl Fan you’ll know Blair is engaged to a ‘Grimaldi’ for season 5 👑

The novel Meet Me In Monaco by Gaynor and Webb tells the story of Grace Kelly’s wedding from a new fictional perspective. The authors have added some affairs and contrasting characters to the royal wedding which creates for some juicy drama! 😉

Set in the 1950s (before all the social media and all things Tik Tok got big) the protagonist Sophie Duval is a local perfume shop owner who goes out of her way to rescue Grace Kelly from the press, James Henderson, who in their own tale need a photo of her to sell in order to keep a roof over their heads. 📸

Cannes Paris is none other than the scene of the royally famous film festival, Sophie graciously shelters Grace from the press invasion and James. But I’m doing so a bond is created between Sophie and Grace which only further endows years of love, tragedy and friendship. ❤️‍🔥

This book is a must read if you love vintage movies, elegance and scandal between the royal family.

Cupcake rating: 🧁🧁🧁🧁

Yours til the royal weddings 💍
