Raised in the West Indies, Jacqueline James is on the verge of becoming a modern day princess until the prince hires a P.I. to do a background check and discovers her father is a fugitive from the States. Determined not to let her fairy tale fall apart, Jacqueline hires the P.I. to help her prove her father's innocence.

When former police officer Beau Ryan's wife's murderer was acquitted, he left Miami on what would have been their anniversary cruise, planning never to return. It's his unexpected soft spot for Jacqueline that has him swallowing down the pain to face his past.

Together they elude press, bounty hunters, and the Miami P.D., searching for the truth needed to free Jacqueline to marry a monarch. Will Beau be able to save the woman he loves this time around? And if so, how will being her knight in shining armor compare with a proposal from Prince Charming?

She only wanted to be a princess. . .

The Princess and the P.I. was a a little bit of everything with just the right blend of suspense, mystery, romance, tension, and learning about God.

I loved the way that Jacqueline and Beau were combinations of strength and weakness.  The lessons they learned as they sought her mother’s killer and the one who framed her father were profound.  Jacqueline had to learn her worth in Christ alone.  Beau had to learn how to empty himself so that God could fill him.

The solution to the mystery made sense, but I have to confess that I was led all over the place as I read.  The author did a great job of dropping hints to get me looking where I shouldn’t have been looking.

I am still a little confused about the motive behind the murder of Beau’s wife.  Why Drake was there at all doesn’t quite make sense to me.  There were also a few continuity issues.  When they were in Miami, there were a couple of things that happened outside the sequence of time that was laid out – either that of the days were much longer than we normally experience them here in Florida.  🙂
