How to Catch a Prince
Rachel Hauck
Zondervan

Prince Stephen came to America to escape responsibility. But what he found complicates his life more than ever.

Corina Del Rey is happy with her life in Melbourne, Florida. She spends her days engrossed in her career as a journalist and has her sights set on climbing the corporate ladder if for no other reason, to distract herself from her dissolving family. But when she is confronted with the past she fought so hard to put behind her, she struggles to make sense of her future.

Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom has moved on since the tragic death of his buddies in Afghanistan. A star professional rugby player, he has no intention of looking over his shoulder at what could ve been.

But when a notice arrives in the mail requiring his and his wife s appearance before the courts to dissolve their marriage, he must deal with the questions rumbling around in his heart. He thought his marriage had been annulled long ago, but his memories of Corina Del Rey remain close. Does he still love her? Can he even find her? Above all, can he tell her the truth about that fateful night in Afghanistan seven years ago? If he does, he might really lose her forever.

The "Royal Weddings" series isn't what you usually find in contemporary fiction because they are truly modern fairytales. Yes, all spiritual happenings are due solely to God's graciousness, but those miracles are a little out-of-the-ordinary in ways we don't usually see. Sometimes the stories themselves can be a bit unbelievable, but in the fictional world, they're a nice break from the world's realities.

How to Catch a Prince was somewhat heavier than the previous books- it involves the aftermath or war, destruction, and deceit. But even so, if retained something of the magical feel of the other two books and never got quite too sappy for me :)

I'm not sure if I liked this book more than the first book in the series, but I did like it more than the last book Princess Ever After. Overall, this was a fun series that while, not my favorite, was a nice read. And the fact that How to Catch a Prince happened to arrive on Valentine's Day was a fun coincidence.

I received this book for free from booklook.com in exchange for my honest review.
