A 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, hasn’t 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 hasn’t 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. It’s a great story to curl up with in front of a fire. It’s appropriate for all ages and is a great Christmas gift. I would recommend it.
