Title: The Royal Treatment
Author: MaryJanice Davidson
Series: Alaska Royals, Book 1
Genre: Speculative chicklit?
Setting: An independent Alaska, ruled by a royal family.
Reason for Reading: I like Davidson for light, summery reads.
Finished In: Hours.
Pages: 320, including an excerpt from Hello, Gorgeous
Copyright Date: 2004
Cover: A woman stalks forward in boots and a long red robe. She holds a tiara in her hand and her hair is in a ponytail. There is a penguin sitting on the train of her robe.
First line: "Even today, with all the comforts of a peaceful twenty-first century, Alaskans are a hardy group, and none more so than the royal family."
Best part: Laugh out loud funny.
Worst part: The premise is slightly bizarre.
