When you were younger did you ever have that dream of meeting a handsome prince and falling in love? Or did you dream of being a journalist who stumbled upon the greatest mystery of all time?! If you had either of these dreams - this book is what you need in your life.
THE ROYAL SECRET by Lucinda Riley was everything I was hoping it would be.
This book is amazing and was published originally in the UK almost 20 years ago but was considered a little too scandalous and damning that a lot of booksellers chose not to sell it. WHAT? How lucky are we that it's now been republished? THIS BOOK IS A GEMSTONE and the perfect thriller with a dash of royalty, big helpings of romance and so much mystery. You do not want to miss it!

When Sir James Harrison, one the greatest actors of his generation, passes away at the age of ninety-five, he leaves behind not just a heartbroken family but also a secret so shocking, it could rock the English establishment to its core.
Joanna Haslam, an up-and-coming reporter, is assigned to cover the legendary actor’s funeral, attended by glitzy celebrities of every background.

As she peels back the veil of lies that has shrouded the secret, she realizes that she’s close to uncovering something deadly serious—and the royal family may be implicated. Before long, someone is on her tracks, attempting to prevent her from discovering the truth. And they’ll stop at nothing to reach the letter before she does…
