Review - Princess Ever After (Royal Wedding #2) by Rachel Hauck
Release Date: 4 February 2014
Regina Beswick never dreamed of faraway places. She’s happy with her life as a classic car mechanic and owner of a restoration shop.
But an unexpected visitor and the discovery of a fairytale, drawn by her great-grandma, causes Regina to wonder if she might be destined for something more.
Tanner Burkhardt, Minister of Culture for the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg, must convince the strong-willed Southerner, Miss Beswick, that she is his country’s long-lost princess. Failure could destroy his reputation and change his nation forever.
As Regina and Tanner face the challenges before them, neither are prepared for love to invade their hearts and change every thing they believe about themselves.
However, when a royal opponent nearly destroys Regina’s future, she must lean into God and trust He has sovereignly brought her to her true and final destiny.
My Review 3 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and Zondervan Fiction, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
I am grudgingly giving this book three stars. Although the cover and the book description got me to try this book, as a consumer i felt them slightly misleadinging. Why? Because of the amount of country politics and the very hard and clear christian theme throughout the book. If you are going to have such a christian theme in a book, warning would be nice as i was NOT expecting it.
The backbone of the story was good, a 29 year old finds out she is a lost princess and heir to a throne in which if she does not take the crown the country will be absorbed into another country. There is also a love of classic cars going on.
There is love, plotting, a very strong christian theme, diary readouts from her dead grandmother, lots of politics and friendship. The book is also very clean and only has a few kisses dotted around, with our couple skirting around most of the book with their feelings.
Certainly not an author i will be reading again.
