Rated 3 stars *** ebook. 2012. Lakeview #1. Green Darner Press.
Princess Olivia Cosimo of Tamura has been sent, in disgrace, to give birth to the child she conceived with a commoner. Whisked away to a family in the United States, she is given the name Blakely Henry.
Seventeen years later, Lord Winslow Byron had the entire royal family of Tamura murdered, believing his family deserved the throne. With no heirs, he is poised to become the next King of Tamura.
As these events unfolded, Max Ryder, a student in Investigative Reporting at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, finds out his aunt used to be Princess Olivia’s nanny. His curiosity leads him to discover the Princess’ long-lost secret. Excited at the thought of getting a good grade for a research project, he goes undercover at Blakely’s Canadian boarding school to find out if she really is the unknown princess and heir to the Tamuran throne.
Max followed clues to discover the identity of Blakely’s birth parents, but did not expect to fall in love with her and to enjoy himself at Lakeview Academy. Unfortunately, not everyone is happy to discover there may be a new Tamuran princess. It is only a matter of time before Blakely’s life is in danger.
Many girls fantasize about being long-lost princesses, rescued by a handsome knight in shining armor. Campbell’s “Hush” modernizes this beloved fantasy of theirs with a few twists of fate.
