bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5An enjoyable Christmas romanceDecember 8, 2016bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Avery had met Prince Colin five years ago when she was in Brighton Kingdom to attend the wedding of her sister to Nathaniel, now king. She had been excited about their budding romance until he abruptly dropped her. That was four and a half years ago and she hasn't heard from him since. Avery and her mother are going to the kingdom to enjoy the country's Christmas celebration. Will she see Colin? Will she be able to control her heart?
Colin had never stopped loving the vivacious Avery, even when his father made him break off the romance. Now he has a beautiful and wealthy woman on his arm. His father thinks she is exactly the right woman for Colin's future. Colin's world is jolted when he sees Avery in Brighton Kingdom. Will he displease his father and pursue Avery?
Hauck has given us a well developed romance in this short novel. It helps that Avery and Colin knew each other before. Through memories and dialogue, both characters are quickly developed well. I really like the fire in Avery. She's a spitfire, even willing to toss cupcakes at Prince Colin when challenged by Colin's friend. I appreciate the character development through character actions rather than long descriptive passages.
I like the setting too. We've learned a bit about Brighton Kingdom from earlier novels and this one concentrates on the Christmas celebration. I like the idea of the centuries old tradition when the tower bell mysteriously rings on its own, it seems God will have a hand in the romance between Avery and Colin.
This is the fourth in this series but this novel reads well on its own. There is enough back story included and action taking place that it is an enjoyable novel to read during the Christmas season.
I received a complimentary egalley of this book through Celebrate Lit. My comments are an independent and honest review.

It stands alone as a perfect story to get you in the Christmas spirit. Rachel Hauck has a way with words that draws you in and keeps you wanting more. I loved the moments that made me laugh and that it is a book of second chances. The characters tug on your heartstrings and you feel their past hurts and cheer for the future set before them. A new favorite Christmas book.

Susan Barrett4 Stars Out Of 5Cute StoryDecember 6, 2016Susan BarrettQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A Royal Christmas Wedding by Rachel Hauck is a novella concluding the Royal Weddings series. This story does work as a stand alone, however, I had read all of the novels leading up to this one.
Avery Truitt, younger sister of American born Brighton princess-by-marriage Susanna, hasnt gotten over her crush on Prince Colin of Brighton since they first met five years ago. Now, her sister is pregnant and the family is visiting Brighton, where Avery inevitably runs into Colin at a Christmas ball, and they both realize that their chemistry hasnt fizzled.
The kingdom of Brighton has a tradition that when a man loves a woman, he rings an old chapel bell at the beginning of advent, and the couple marries on Christmas Day. Prince Colin also has a tradition where he and his buddies hang out at the top of the chapel on that fated night. But this year, when Colin enters the chapel, his emotions are in a whirl after seeing Avery again, and when the chapel bell mysteriously, Colin sets off to find God and His purpose for his life, and to see if it includes Avery.
This was a super cute novella, which I read in one day. Its a great story to curl up with in front of a fire. Its appropriate for all ages and is a great Christmas gift. I would recommend it.

Rebecca ManeyGastonia, North CarolinaAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Succulent Romance!November 28, 2016Rebecca ManeyGastonia, North CarolinaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Once upon a time the chapel bell at Brighton Kingdom's Pembroke Chapel Tower rang according to tradition; declaring young love and inspiring romance, but tragedy silenced the chimes when a young royal fell to his death. One hundred and eighty two years later, Prince Colin Tattersall hears the bells miraculously ring for him, and quite possibly for the love of his life, a gorgeous Georgia girl who stole his heart, Avery Truitt. Can Colin possibly thwart his father's will and summon the courage that he needs to heed a "God-to-man" conversation?
Avery Truitt is headed back to Brighton Kingdom, to celebrate the wondrous Christmas season with her mother, and royal sister and brother-in-law. Just the thought of seeing Prince Colin again has her nerves on edge; surely he has moved on after deserting her without a word, five years earlier. Still mourning the death of her father and uncertain about her future as an aspiring volleyball coach, Avery is unprepared for the feelings that surge to the surface when the two literally come face-to-face on a ballroom floor.
Enjoy this succulent romance with rich reminders that God is capable of ringing bells to catch our attention and manifest His love.

Cynthia5 Stars Out Of 5BeautifulNovember 26, 2016CynthiaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I received this book from the Fiction Guild for an honest review. Rachel has written another wonderful book in this series. The way that she contains in each of her stories of the series in each of the books and get to know each character and feel for them. You almost feel like you are watching the story unfold as you read each of the pages. This is a beautiful story of 2nd chances at love and the undeniable faith in God. And when you trust in what he is trying to help you feel. This story is about Avery and Prince Colin coming together again for the Christmas holidays. Avery has lost her father an then is unable to continue playing volleyball for the Olympics because of injury. Prince Colin is finally out of the Navy and is working with his father. They broke up in a bad way and will be seeing each other for the holidays celebrations since he will be doing things with the Royal family since he is a cousin to the King and is working with the Princess with a charity. I cried, I cheered and just loved this story. The change the history of a bell tower that once killed a prince.
