A Royal Christmas Wedding

GIVEAWAY
HAUCK, RACHEL
A ROYAL CHRISTMAS WEDDING

Avery Truitt aches for true love -- the kind she once shared with Prince Colin. Can she dare to hope for happily ever after, or is a fairy-tale ending beyond reach?

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?

My Review:

published in 2016 by Zondervan
My thanks to my public library for providing me with a copy of this delightful retro read!

Scrumptious holiday romance! This ticks all the boxes and put me in the holiday spirit...in April. Which is fine, really, since there's a major blizzard heading my way. If I'm getting the weather, I might as well enjoy the best part of winter, right? And that's Christmas reading!

A modern day fairy tale with a toe-curling prince who wrestles between duty and the heart! Blissful sigh. A snappy, scrappy Southern belle who hides a broken heart underneath all that moxie. Circumstances conspire along with a little divine assistance and Colin and Avery are faced with a second chance...if they're willing to take a leap of faith. Loved every exquisite second of this read.
