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.
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 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.
