What is this month's book about?"
"What if America had a royal family? If you can't get enough of Harry and Meghan or Kate and William, meet American princesses Beatrice and Samantha. Crazy Rich Asians meets The Crown. Perfect for fans of Red, White, and Royal Blue and The Royal We!
Two princesses vying for the ultimate crown.
Two girls vying for the prince's heart.
This is the story of the American royals.
When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne. Like most royal families, the Washingtons have an heir and a spare. A future monarch and a backup battery. Each child knows exactly what is expected of them. But these aren't just any royals. They're American.
As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America's first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling. Nobody cares about the spare except when she's breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn't care much about anything, either . . . except the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her. And then there's Samantha's twin, Prince Jefferson. If he'd been born a generation earlier, he would have stood first in line for the throne, but the new laws of succession make him third. Most of America adores their devastatingly handsome prince . . . but two very different girls are vying to capture his heart."

Book Club Party Recipes
Time to break out the tiaras and tea cups. If we're hosting a royal themed book club party, serve a menu filled with light and easy to nibble treats.
- You can't beat my easy blueberry scones paired with tea, coffee, or even a simple mimosa.
- Fresh strawberry bruschetta on homemade crostini would be fun to serve with champagne.
- For a more decadent treat, this rich chocolate flourless torte is easy but elegant. Drizzle a homemade creme anglaise or amaretto cream sauce over the top and sprinkle fresh berries alongside for a dessert fit for a princess.
