A Royal Christmas by Rachel Hauck - Review and Giveaway

I voluntarily reviewed this book

Published: October 18, 2016
Number of pages: 240
Genre: Romance
Series: Royal Wedding #4

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?

In the fourth installment of the Royal Wedding Series, New York Times bestselling novelist, Rachel Hauck, weaves a charming story of holiday romance as two broken hearts seek the love they once knew.

My thoughts:
This is the final book is a touching series. We have watched Avery grow up between our eyes and now she gets to try and find her chance at happiness. This book will grab you on the first page and not let go until the very end. I also like the fairy tale theme to this book as what does every girl want but their own fairy tale and this one has a Christmas twist to it so that was an added bonus. Brighton sounds like such a special place and I enjoyed the bell ringing tradition. Rachel's writing style makes this book very easy to read as the words just flow off the pages. I thought she did a good job in wrapping up this series. Although I will be sad to see it go. This book can also be read as a stand alone book.
