Indie Review - Princess by Courtney Cole
Money can’t buy happiness… even in a world that begins with a Tiffany teething ring.
Sydney Ross has it made. As the 17-year old daughter of Illinois senator Randall Ross and socialite Jillian Ross, Sydney was born with perfect teeth and a killer trust-fund. Everything about her life is idyllic…the life of a princess. The Ross’ are richer than God and twice as beautiful, the picture-perfect All-American Family.
Except that it is all a lie.
After a positive pregnancy test, Sydney’s life unravels in the space of just one breath. Life as she knows it is over and survival itself begins to look questionable as life and death literally hang in the balance with each sordid twist that she is dealt.
After the shocking climax, Sydney is brought to her knees with one seething question: Who in the world can she trust when no one is who they seem to be?
Caution: This book is not set in a Mayberry kind of world nor is it a simple book about teen pregnancy. Princess is somewhat twisted and edgy. You might need to fan yourself during some parts and a box of tissues during others. It contains love, suspense, heartache and loss. Oh- and some adult themes and language, too.
Princess by Courtney Cole is the poster-child for the #indierevolution: the flawless writing style and superb editing make for a novel that is a believable read in the world of literature. The cover is expertly designed, it looks legit. Above all, this author uses her wide writing talent to break free from paranormal romance and write a suspenseful, contemporary novel for an older audience. Her pitch is fantastic. We at All Indie E-books would highly recommend this indie novel.
