Review by: Jenn
First in a new series!
From New York Times bestselling author Katie MacAlister comes a series about finding your own wonderland—through one roadblock at a time…
Nothing about Alice Wood’s life is normal right now. Her fiance called off their wedding and relationship days before their luxurious tour down Europe’s most romantic rivers. And due to a horrible misunderstanding, now Alice is cooped up in her honeymoon suite with a strange—yet mysteriously handsome—British aristocrat.
All Elliott Ainslie wants is some quiet time to write his latest book. But his stodgy, serious self is about to be sidetracked by a woman who seems to have jumped out of the pages of a fairy tale, one who is determined to shake up his life…and include him in her own happily ever after.

*I received a free finished copy of this book from the publisher but it did not influence this review in any way.*
**This is a DID NOT FINISH review. I only read up to page 85 so these are my thoughts up to this point.**
I had high hopes for this book. I was looking forward to it but after suffering through a few chapters, I just didn't like it. I couldn't connect to any of the characters and actually found them to be a bit irritating. Alice is supposed to be a quirky character but, again, it ended up showing up as irritating. Another unfortunate moment right before I called it quits, was when I saw the hint of instalove. Since I didn't read all that much, I can't confirm it, but I did see it happening.
It disappointing that I didn't end up liking the book considering that it supposed to take place as both Alice and Elliot travel Europe in a cruise. Ah such a missed connection.
