My Review

Doctor Katrina Parsons grew up on her grandparents ranch, spending her summers at camp. It was at camp that she made friends with Sophia, initially not realising that Sophia’s parents were the sovereigns and rulers of a small European country and Sophia is a princess! The two became firm friends, keeping in touch over the years with Sophia coming to stay with Kat and her grandparents sometimes, too. Kat, however, has always declined invitations to visit Sophia – until now.

The big change now is that Sophia is getting married and wants her BFF to be one of her bridesmaids. The main drawback is the Sophia’s family believe that Kat has been a disruptive and bad influence on Sophia, even though she hasn’t really – Sophia just blamed her when she wanted to go against her family’s wishes. Sophia’s older brother, Gill, is now the Crown Prince and he’s never really forgiven Kat for injuring him – accidentally – and for being so friendly with Sophia. With the Queen and her royal mother in law to be at loggerheads over the wedding,

Sophia is really anticipating Kat being a calming influence on the stubborn women. However, she’s also planning on trying to act as matchmaker,, bringing together Kat and her brother in law to be, Jamie, since she’s given up on trying to get Kat and Gill to be friends.  There a some great characters, including Max, and some drama that may bring a tear to your eye – it did mine! As the Queen and Gill both think Kat is out to ensnare some rich Royal to marry her and Kat has no such pans, get ready for a right Royal romance and Christmas wedding is this delightful read that I have no hesitation in recommending!

I was gifted a copy of this via NetGalley.

Synopsis

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 on 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?
