Hauck, Rachel. Once Upon a Prince. Zondervan: 2013.
Told from her boyfriend of twelve years that he “found the right ring but the wrong girl”, Susanna vows to search for her one-true-love. Through a series of misfortunes and heartbreaks, Susanna does meet the man of her dreams but discovers he is unavailable due to his birthright of being a future King as well as an outdated, ancient decree. True love does have a way of winning though…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
From the absolutely adorable book cover to the modern day fairytale (albeit a bit relevant while waiting for the Royal baby to appear), I found myself positively enjoying this novel! Though a new author for me, I am sure I will no longer be a stranger to her books. Inspired by Prince William and Princess Catherine of Cambridge, the author, Rachel Hauck, does a gracious job of bringing the Prince of Brighton and everyday, simple, issue-ridden Susanna together through funny moments and endearing junctures all within Christian perspectives. I appreciated the contemporary love-story with morals and values intact. As the pages continued to turn faster, I found myself hoping for a sequel (which there will be)! Definitely a book worth reading and sharing!
RATING: 4.5 (out of 5) pennies
