Reviews

  • There's enough palace intrigue, royal shenanigans, and even a smidgen of sex to satisfy anyone who loves a bit of gossip . . . An entertaining royal family modeled after the residents of Buckingham Palace.

    Kirkus Reviews
  • McGee crafts a deliciously soapy American royal family . . . McGee's characters are well-crafted and flawed, giving the narrative emotional texture that elevates it above the dramatic formula

    Publishers Weekly
  • A fun twist on history as we know it, and the ending will have readers hoping for a sequel

    School Library Journal
  • For readers looking for intrigue-and for those who like their royal fever with a twist-this is a quick and delicious read

    Booklist
  • I really enjoyed this book. For me it was The Crown meets Gossip Girl which was always going to be a fun combination. The structure, pace and characterisation made this an easy and very enjoyable read.

  • With the seemingly endless influx of new novels hitting the real and virtual bookshelves every day, the choice can seem overwhelming. But, occasionally a novel comes along with the promise of delivering escapism by way of a subject matter - royals, romance and a Gossip Girl-esque scandal - that is a no-brainer must-read . . . American Royals [is] just such a novel set to ignite and delight book clubs and literary-loving fans of The Princess Diaries, Gossip Girl, The Crown or even just the real-life British royals.

  • Relatable, believable, fantastical, aspirational, and completely addictive . . . I loved, loved, loved this book
