Book Review: How to Catch a Prince by Rachel Hauck
American heiress Corina Del Rey's life was devastated by war. Every thing she loved was lost. But after five years of grief, she's shed her grave clothes and started over in the sunshine along the Florida coast.
But some things are not so easily forgotten. When a secret from her past confronts her face to face, she realizes she must follow her heart. Even if it cost her everything.
Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom is a former Royal Air Command lieutenant turned star rugby player, trying to make sense of his life after the devastation of war.
When his brother, King Nathaniel, discovers Stephen's pre war secret, he must deal with an aspect of his life he longed to forget. But how can he do so without exposing the truth and breaching national security?
Yet, true love has a destiny all it's own. As the cathedral bells peal through Cathedral City, Corina and Stephen must chose to answer the call of love on their hearts.
Or let it be lost forever?
My Thoughts: With the release of the new Cinderella movie, this seemed a very fitting book to review. If you enjoy fairy tales and princesses, then you will love this book!
It's not all light and fluffy. The book deals with serious issues including war and death. Yes, there is romance and love, but there is also tragedy and sorrow. What I really enjoyed were the spiritual lessons learned along the way. One scene involving the prince towards the end of the book was particularly moving.
