A royal wedding. A meddlesome mother. An unexpected union.
A European getaway during the Christmas holiday is exactly what veterinarian Katrina "Kat" Parsons needs. She can't wait to be a bridesmaid in her childhood friend's royal wedding, but she hopes to steer clear of the bride's arrogant older brother.
Crown Prince Guillaume wants his younger sister's wedding day to be perfect, but he's suspicious of Kat. He and his mother are on high alert, afraid Kat is not just there for the wedding, but also to find a prince of her own.
But when Kat's kindness and generosity prove them wrong, the prince realizes there's more to her than he ever imagined. Can he trust his heart or will he lose the one woman he can't live without?
This is definitely one of those cheesy Hallmark Christmas movies turned into a book. The book is extremely PG 13 in the sense that even the villins are not that bad. I did not like the Prince initially. He seemed condescending and dddly enough not royal enough. I also found it weird that hte Prince and his sister went all the way to the US for some summer camp or something. Nobody knew they were royalty. In this camp is wehre Sophie and Gill meet Kat. Apparently Sophie and Kat become good friends and they video chat for many years. They are best friends. Kat is invited to Sophie’s royal wedding where she is not well liked by the Queen and Gill because she could be a gold digger, even though Kat is a Dr. She seems more accomplished than the Queen and Prince. Even though Kat minds her business and only wants to be a good bridesmaid the Queen and Gill still don’t trust her. It’s not until another man seems interested in her that Gill wants her too. Some of the arguments seem petty and even the Queen engaged in some juvenile interactions, like dropping punch on Kat’s dress on purpose…. I mean this is the royalty? Sophie was in a reality TV and that is where she met her fiancé. When does royalty go on a reality tv show? It just all seemed so farfetched.35
I loved reading a good story with a great plot. Some romance but a lot of excitement and funny stories. Loved ever chapter.55
This book was absolutely captivating. Couldn’t put it down. Had me laughing and crying ( the Queen was mean) but loved, loved, loved it. I want me a Prince like Gill.55
Easy reading and author keeps your attention.55
Great contemporary version of Cinderella!55
This book is incredibly written and totally pulls at your heart strings!!!! I love the detail and emotion that can be felt and I hope that we may all develop the attitude of “never splitting up family”55
If your looking for a “sweep you off your feet” romance, this is a great start.55
I really liked this book. Very clean read. Look forward to more from this author.55
Melissa Mcclone is a new author to me, so this is the first book of hers I have read. It certainly won’t be the last. Magnificently portrayed characters make up a fantastic page turner. I urge all to read it. I read it in one sitting and let the other stuff wait; it’s that good!55
The characters personalities really were spot on. I think it was interesting to see how royals act and how the author italicized the characters thoughts before they answered each other... good love story. Not sexual which was nice. Just charming!55
