It’s been five years since Avery Truitt and Prince Colin of Brighton Kingdom fell in love. But he broke her heart with no explanation.
Fast forward to present day, and Colin is Brighton’s most eligible bachelor now that cousin Stephen has married. When Avery’s father dies of a heart attack, she puts her life on hold and returns home to St. Simons Island, Georgia, to help Mama with the family restaurant. But Mama misses Avery’s sister Susanna, who lives four thousand miles away in Brighton Kingdom—and is expecting her first child. So Mama insists she and Avery spend the Christmas season in Brighton.
Colin and Avery are going to see each other a lot while she’s visiting. But she can’t forget the way he hurt her, and he didn’t expect his feelings to still be so strong.
First, isn't the cover just gorgeous?! Covers really draw me into the book, and this one drew me in immediately! I told Rachel when I received the book for review that I hoped it put me in the Christmas spirit and it did!
Rachel is the Queen of weddings, whether she is writing about a wedding chapel, wedding shop, or the wedding itself it is beautiful, romantic, and meaningful.
The Brighton Kingdom, the Royal family, a baby on the way, a talk show, and the ringing of a bell are the background for this book. When the Pembroke Chapel Bell is rung during the Harvest Celebration the kingdom is a buzz as to who rang it and if there will be a wedding on Christmas day.
Rachel creates characters that deal with inner personal struggles just like all of us. We have a front row seat to Colin's struggle. Does he do what his heart is telling him, allow his father to dictate his life choices, or listen to his Heavenly Father?
This is not just a romance about a fairy tale wedding, it is a book about faith, trust, and love. Faith in the Father who created us. Trusting His will for us, and love.
I highly recommend this book! There is a link in my sidebar for you to pre-order it.

Grant McAllister arrives in Murphy, North Carolina, with one aim: to sell his inherited property and leave as quickly as possible. The big-city lawyer has no interest in his late, estranged grandparents or the dilapidated mansion he just acquired. After his high-profile divorce, he should be avoiding perky reporters, too. But Jami Carlisle is honest, funny, and undeniably appealing.
After breaking up with her safe-but-smothering boyfriend, Jami is determined to ace her first big assignment. A story about the McAllister estate is too intriguing to ignore—much like its handsome, commitment-phobic heir. Thanks to her digging, the pieces of Grant’s fraught family history are gradually fitting into place, but also upending all his old beliefs.
The two draw closer as they share their dreams, until misread signals and misunderstandings begin to test their trust. But in the unspoiled beauty of the Smoky Mountains, there’s healing and forgiveness to be found. And for Grant, this unplanned detour may be just what’s needed to finally guide him home…
Decision making's a bear.
