It’s been five years since Avery Truitt has seen or heard from Prince Colin. Although she’s tried, her heart just can’t seem to forget him. She’s recently lost her father and nothing seems the same at home without him. Then her sister Susanna invites Avery and her mother to Brighton Kingdom for Christmas. Avery knows she’ll see Colin and is hoping to find out what happened, why he cut her off. Colin however, appears to have moved on, with a beautiful model at his side. But all is not what it seems and when Colin and Avery finally see each other again, they find their connection is still very strong. When a prayer of Colin’s is answered in an unusual way he must decide whether to follow the path of his earthly father or his heavenly father.
I absolutely LOVED this story for its enchanting characters and the whole magic of Christmas in Brighton not to mention that it’s very romantic. Although I’ve enjoyed the entire series, I must confess that this is my favorite. The Bell Ringing tradition was really fun and I loved how it was integrated into the story. Prince Colin and Avery were both charming and I LOVED the chemistry between them. The snappy dialog (which was honest and realistic) had me turning pages at light speed and kept me up way past my bedtime. I appreciated the sound advice that King Nathanial gave to Colin when he went to talk to him about his dilemma. This is definitely going on the ‘keeper shelf’. There really wasn’t anything I didn’t like about the book, except that it came to an end. So grab you hot cocoa, sit back and relax because you are in for a royal treat. I highly recommend you attend A Royal Christmas Wedding!

A few favorite quotes:
“This is a great charity. Studies have shown people are more likely to have price in themselves when they can purchase gifts with money they’ve earned.”
“I’m just saying when a man loves a woman he’ll move heaven and earth to be with her.”
“Sad thing about losing your parent is a door to your childhood closes. One you didn’t even know was open.”
