Valentine's Day means flowers, chocolates, and all-out romance.
That is, it usually means those things. But when you're Princess Mia, nothing happens the way it's supposed to. For one thing, Grandmère seems determined to prove that boy (or Michael, as he is commonly known) isn't the right one for the crown princess of Genovia. And Mia isn't having much luck proving otherwise, since Michael has a history of being decidedly against any kind of exploitative commercialization (Valentine's Day, as it is commonly known).
Boris can declare his love openly to Lilly, and even Kenny comes through with a paltry Whitman's Sampler. So why can't Michael give in to Cupid and tell Mia he loves her—preferably with something wrapped in red or pink and accompanied by roses—in time to prove he's Mia's true prince?
Valentine Princess is a novella in The Princess Diaries series, and sadly in Goodreads it is marked as #7.6 - which completely threw me off, because in fact it is #4.25, so I had to think back on the previous events to understand where I was in the series. Regardless of my mishap this was another funny story about Mia freaking out about something simple - Valentine's day. It is written like she found an old journal and is reading what happened to her and Michael back in the day. This was a very cute concept and it pulls everything together really well.
I have been enjoying these books, they are easy reads, however this one because it was a novella I guess, just seemed rushed but it was still cute and funny. I am not sure that this novella would make much sense if you have not read the series though.
