Review of How to Catch a Prince by Rachel Hauck


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."

 

Expected publication: February 24th 2015



Review:

The first two books in this series were fantastic. The concept of the books aren't extremely original, but Hauck's writing is great. Her books remind me of Hallmark romance movies. They are slow going, but usually end with with a conclusion to the story wrapped up in a pretty bow. Oh, and there are a few kisses sprinkled in.

This book was harder for me to sing my praises for. The things that I don't like to get into are politics and religion. The books are apparently labeled Christian Romance, but the first two weren't that religious. This installment was almost 100% religious. 

The concept of this particular story was well crafted and dealt with tragic issues, while keeping the readers engaged and not depressed. Overall, it's a great romantic read. This third book just wasn't what I expected and didn't fit my reading interests.

I'm giving this book 3 glittery stars for a good storyline, but again, it didn't suit me. If you are into inspirational Christian Romance, then this is a good pick.
