I'm conflicted about how to write this review - my main conclusion is that it was unsatisfying for me as a novel, but I did read it to the end.

The first half of this story only gets 3 stars - the mystery kept me reading, but the way it was written was really not my cup of tea. Maybe it's the way J-novels are written, but there is a ton of introspection that leads absolutely nowhere and doesn't add much to the plot, just makes me frustrated with the FL.... more>> It's also a LOT of dry exposition about past events and genealogy in very long boring conversations. I mean, I appreciate world building, but there must be a more interesting way to do it. I also did not find a satisfactory resolution to all the horrible things that poor Alterie had to go through as a child. The way the FL moves on from the past is just so dismissive. While the relationship between the CP is very sweet and I have no doubt of their love, there is very little romance in this novel, their relationship takes a backstage (I mean she stays in the body of a 11-13 year old girl the whole time, so what could happen?) The food also comes in and out of the story, but really isn't that prominent either. So if you are reading for romance and food porn, you probably should forget this novel.

The 2nd half of the novel is a bit better in terms of plot pace and brings the rating up to 3.5 (rounded to 4), perhaps because the necessary exposition happens in the 1st half. But the ultimate mystery behind her identity doesn't get much resolution in the 2nd half either.

2nd half major spoiler:

I think her transmigration had something to do with her being the 'key princess' and that one of the doors she could open in the strange palace basement might lead back to modern Japan or something, but that never happened? It's never made clear what the magic of the key princess is actually worth (other than being protected by the crown as the last descendant of the Unification Empire) So that was pretty frustrating for me. What was the point? She also doesn't really bring any major innovation to the world being a modern person, other than a few new recipes for sweets.

Don't the generic title, setting and art fool you, this isn't pointless fluff. The food featured is usually served as a side dish for the political intrigue.

The Princess' unique status made her a frequent target for assassination ever since she was born, her death capable of creating a civil war.

As for the romance, it's sweet.

Spoiler

The Princess' official first meeting with her husband has her cowering from his billion watt smile.

"Are you listening?"

"... Please don't be angry"

"I'm not angry"

"I can hear the anger from your voice"

"You're making me angry"

"But you just said you weren't!"

But once they clear out the air enough to have a decent conversation, they get along just fine. Enough to make the Prince's brothers ecstatic.

"The sweets are wasted on Elder Brother"

So far it balances everything out nicely. I hope a translator group picks this up since the author likes to put details in their world building. It'll be a headache for an amateur translator, much less an MTL one. <<less
