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.

Review by Kristina Anderson, The Avid Reader
Overall Rating
A Royal Christmas Wedding by Rachel Hauck is the fourth book in the Royal Wedding series. Avery Truitt as well as her mother, Glo are dealing with the loss of her father in St. Simons Island, Georgia. Susanna, her sister, invites them to spend Christmas in Brighton Kingdom where she lives with her husband, King Nathaniel III. Glo is glad to get away from the memories and is excited to see Susanna (she is pregnant). Avery is not as excited. It has been five years since she has seen Prince Colin Tattersall. They were in love with each other, but Colin broke off their relationship very suddenly (and without a decent explanation). Avery has tried to get over him, but how do you forget your one true love.

There is a special tradition in Brighton Kingdom that has not been observed in 182 years. At the end of the Harvest Celebration, just after the last bell rings at midnight, a man in love can ring the Pembroke Chapel Bell. He is announcing his intention to woo and marry a woman on Christmas morning. Colin has been following the path his father set out for him for the last five years. But he is still in love with Avery. He is in the bell tower just before midnight and says a prayer. The Pembroke Bell then rings by itself. This is the sign Colin needed, and he sets out to win Avery. But Avery does not wish to come between Colin and his father. Will there be a happily ever after this Christmas for these two love birds?

A Royal Christmas Wedding is a sweet, predictable romance novel. I did not know this book was part of a series when I decided to read it (discovered it after I started reading the novel). It did not hinder my reading enjoyment. A Royal Christmas Wedding can be read alone. The author provides the reader with the information they need to understand and enjoy the story. The novel is nicely written, has engaging characters, good historical element, steamy romance, and has a nice Christian element. I give A Royal Christmas Wedding 4 out of 5 stars (I have to admit that I liked it). The epilogue wraps up the series with a bow.

In A Royal Christmas Wedding, Ms. Hauck returns for one last story featuring the characters of her acclaimed Royal Wedding Series. First introduced in Once Upon a Prince, Avery Truitt has grown up from simply being the kid sister of the King of Brighton’s wife, Susanna. Avery made a name for herself as a college volleyball star before an unfortunate injury forced her to the sidelines, just in time for her to find a career of her own after graduation. In the wake of her husband’s death, Avery and Susanna’s mother wishes to travel with Avery to spend the Christmas season in Brighton. Travelling back to Brighton means that Avery will inevitably encounter Prince Colin, the one man who broke her heart five years ago. However, time has not left Prince Colin unchanged, as he finds himself regretting the loss of Avery, even as he has begun a successful career himself. Both Avery and Colin must choose between continuing to pursue their current paths or finally coming back to each other, hopefully in time for a centuries-old Brighton tradition of the prince marrying on Christmas morning.

Fans of Ms. Hauck’s Royal Wedding books will be delighted with this Christmas-themed conclusion to her acclaimed series of novels. While the novel brings together many characters introduced earlier in the series, it also serves as a worthwhile stand-alone Christmas story.

Overall, I was exceptionally pleased with A Royal Christmas Wedding! Even as a shorter-form story (supposedly a novella), it offers a compelling and complete plot with a surprising amount of character development. As indicated in the author’s acknowledgments, Ms. Hauck received countless requests for a satisfying conclusion to Avery and Colin’s story. After reading A Royal Christmas Wedding, Ms. Hauck certainly fulfilled that request! This book offers plenty of extra detail and development that will leave fans with many more of their questions answered, as well as a better sense of what happens to the various families in the years following the series. Granted, I’m sure that any of Ms. Hauck’s readers would also be just as happy to hear of future novels in this vein.

Special thanks to BookLook Bloggers and Zondervan for the advanced copy of A Royal Christmas Wedding!
