Renee Conoulty: INCONCEIVABLE! by Tegan Wren


Monday, 16 November 2015


When Ozarks native Hatty goes “whole hog” during karaoke, she catches the eye of Prince John. He isn’t what she expects the heir to a small European nation to be: he's affable, witty, and isn’t put off by her tell-it-like-it-is demeanor. Their flirtation should be short lived, but a force stronger than fate—Hatty’s newspaper editor—assigns her to cover the royals. After spending time together, she and John soon begin dating, and Hatty finds herself making headlines instead of writing them. 

But challenges loom that are even more complicated than figuring out how to mesh Hatty's journalism career with life at Belvoir Palace. Hatty and John soon find themselves embroiled in an unusual sex scandal: they can't produce an heir. Tabloids dub Hatty a “Barren-ess,” and the royals become irate. Hatty politely tells them to shove it. But beneath her confident exterior, she struggles to cope with a heartbreak that invades her most intimate moments with John. Pressured to choose between invasive medical procedures and abandoning John’s claim to the throne, the couple feels trapped until a trip to Ethiopia shows them happy endings sometimes arrive long after saying “I do.”

Hey! Here's my review.

This debut novel from Tegan Wren was easy to read but still had depth. It started out with a chick lit fairytale feel. Ordinary girl meets a prince and falls in love. 

That concept may sound inconceivable, but it reminded me of the true story of an Aussie girl who met the Prince of Denmark in a pub in Sydney and she is now a Royal Princess. This story takes a different turn to that of Princess Mary. Princess Mary now has four children, but what if she'd had trouble conceiving. 

Inconceivable explores this concept in a well thought out manner. This novel made me stop and think about the issues of infertility and of living a life in the public eye. 

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
