“A Royal Christmas Wedding” ~ Book Review

Oct 31, 2016 by

Welcome back to Rachel’s Back Talk! I’m so glad you could join me again. Today I am reviewing Rachel Hauck’s book, A Royal Christmas Wedding.


As is my custom, if I could ask Rachel one question about A Royal Christmas Wedding, it would be — “What inspired the ringing of the bell part of the story line?” And if you want to know why I asked that question, I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out!


And without further ado, onto Rachel’s Back Talk!


From the Back Cover:

College volleyball star Avery Truitt has not seen her former flame, Prince Colin of Brighton Kingdom, since he suddenly pushed her away five years ago. But now, the sadness of losing her father and the joy of her sister Susanna’s pregnancy have brought Avery back to Brighton just in time for Cathedral City’s enchanting Christmas season.

Avery knows she can’t avoid seeing Colin—now the Kingdom’s most eligible bachelor—whether or not her heart is ready to relive the pain. But seeing him again might bring her the closure she needs after all this time.

When Colin finds himself at the center of a centuries-old Brighton tradition, he must decide whether to follow the path laid out before him or follow his heart to the only woman for whom he would ring the Pembroke Chapel Bell.

Can Colin convince Avery to meet him at the chapel on Christmas morning—as tradition dictates—or will Avery run back to her St. Simons home and pursue a coaching career as planned?

Rachel Hauck has a gift in telling a story that keeps her readers hanging on to the very last word! I have loved every single one for her Royal Wedding books and was so excited that Avery and Prince Collin’s story would take place at Christmas!

Avery was always the “kid-sister” of Princess Susanna from book 1, Once Upon a Prince. In book 1, you fell in love with not only Susanna and Nathaniel, but the whirlwind romance of Avery and Prince Collin. Avery definitely matured a lot since she was first introduced and it was wonderful to see more into the”why” of her thinking and actions.

And while Prince Collin could sometimes drive you crazy because he hurt Avery, you had to applaud him for respecting his father’s wishes. The level of maturity in Prince Collin’s life showed when he realized that he had to stop putting his father’s wants over what God wanted for his life.

A beautiful, touching romantic story sure to put you in the Christmas spirit for sure! So curl up with a blanket and a cup of hot cocoa, and settle in for the night with this captivating read!
