Series Overview:
Carter and Rosalinda are both back to their normal lives in Louisiana and Costa Luna. They stay in touch via text, email, phone, and even the occasional visit. Carter tells her friend all about her father's other completed PPP missions, still able to have a laugh over some princesses' antics. Sometimes Carter and her father joke about her going on missions with him—after her plan to save Rosie, her father knows she could someday follow in his footsteps—but he makes it clear that she's not to do anything like that ever again. But Carter doesn't seek out trouble, especially when it comes to princesses—it just happens to find her.

#1—Chasing the Crown
Carter Mason is thrilled when her best friend, Queen Rosalinda, invites her to Washington, D.C. to accompany her on her first official state visit. They'll tour the White House, attend a state dinner with royal dignitaries, and maybe even visit the new spy museum. But their plans for fun quickly change when Carter discovers that another visiting royal, Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess Alice Catherine, is being threatened by her own cousin, Princess Ingrid, who'll stop at nothing to be on the throne. Can two teens outsmart one of their own and save the Crown Princess in time?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Christensen
In this episode of the Princess Protection Program series, Carter joins her friend Queen Rosalinda as a VSG (Very Special Guest) in Washington D.C. Along with the tours and state dinners she finds herself smack in the middle of a princess conspiracy. After intercepting a text message from the mysterious Lapofluxury, Carter realizes that Princess Ingrid from Scandia is involved in a plot to discredit her cousin, the Crown Princess Alice Catherine. With her father away on important princess protection business and Rosalinda busy with official business, it is up to Carter to keep an eye on Alice Catherine, and somehow convince her of her cousin's treachery. There are plenty of fashion descriptions for princess enthusiasts, and some exciting plot developments to keep the pages moving. Unfortunately, character development is minimal, relying instead on familiarity with the series. Rather than allowing Carter or one of the princesses to solve their dilemma, the developers of the story resort to a stereotypical princess "rescue" by Carter's dad. Fans of the series may enjoy the book, but are likely to find more satisfaction from the plethora of strong literary princesses from Catherine Murdock's Princess Ben to Meg Cabot's Mia (from The Princess Diaries).
