Book Review

Going all the way to England for college–to Oxford, no less–for college would be exciting enough. But no sooner does Evie set foot on English soil than she falls for a boy who turns out to be a real prince–in fact, second in line to the throne of England. Edmund is wonderful, even though loving him can be a royal pain, from the demands of his family to the stuck-up aristocrat who thinks she should be the one to win Edmund’s heart. All that is swept aside, however, when the riddle of Evie’s past surfaces, and the new couple becomes obsessed with figuring out who the real Evie is, with the growing suspicion that the truth will be a shocker.

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Nineteen-year-old Evie is following in her parent’s footsteps by attending the University of Oxford. Despite transferring as a sophomore, Evie is immediately accepted into a group of friends and just as quickly develops a relationship with the debonair “spare heir” to the English throne, Edmund. With Edmund’s help, Evie is on a quest to uncover a family secret that unfolds through a series of letters from her deceased mother. While the two grow closer, they face continuous obstacles, including the intrusion of Edmund’s parent-approved love interest, Lady Jax, and Evie’s common social standing as an American. However, readers will suspect very early on the secret that Evie keeps from Edmund. The plot moves along at a quick, though somewhat predictable pace. Supporting characters are one-dimensional, and Prince Edmund is almost entirely infallible. Fans of Meg Cabot’s “Princess Diaries” (HarperCollins) may gravitate toward this one. VERDICT Teens will overlook predictability in favor of the delicious, compulsively readable fairy tale romance.—Lynn Rashid, Marriotts Ridge High School, Marriottsville, MD


“Albright debuts with an unabashed fairy tale romance of the American girl who meets her prince, while discovering her own royal background. It’s a fine choice for fans of films like The Princess Diaries or The Prince and Me, or readers looking for a lighthearted romp with a guaranteed happy ending.” —Publishers Weekly

“The magic of falling in love…and the challenges of difficult moral decisions are well-portrayed and have timeless appeal.” —Kirkus Reviews

The Heir and the Spare is a fun contemporary read. Evie is so cute and her sass comes out at just the perfect times, making her not too cookie-cutter or stereotypical. Ultimately, this book is a light mystery with the added steam of a royal romance, an HEA and plenty of secondary characters to enjoy.” —RT Book Reviews

“Evie is on a quest to uncover a family secret that unfolds through a series of letters from her deceased mother…. [A] delicious, compulsively readable fairy tale romance.” —School Library Journal

“Readers … will appreciate this debut, which confidently combines royalty, romance, and mystery.” —Booklist

“The story is enjoyable and fun to read. Never boring, never dull. Overall, this book is for those who love the PRINCESS DIARIES and its movies. THE HEIR AND THE SPARE is totally perfect for someone who is looking for a light, very cheesy, and fluffy read that isn’t too serious for the brain.” –YA Books Central

“An adorable book that is sure to capture any romantic’s heart. The plot was incredibly fast-paced and would make for a fabulous beach read…a cute debut that will tickle any reader’s toes.” –

“Contemporary royal romance? Yes, please! This is a fun, fast read that makes you swoon a little as you expel more than a few longing sighs. If you’re hungry for clean NA romance–that happens to also be a royal romance with a heaping helping of ‘ahhhhhh, sweet!’–you’re going to love The Heir and the Spare.” —USA Today Happy Ever After blog
