How To Catch A Prince is the third book in Rachel Hauck's Royal Wedding Series and it is fantastic. I have had the pleasure of reading all of the books in this series and each one just gets better. In Book 3 we meet Corina Del Rey, an American Heiress from Georgia who is working in journalism for a friend after losing her twin brother Carlos in Afghanistan with the Royal Air Command. Corina is also married to Prince Stephen of Brighton but they were married in secret. Stephen and Corina have not seen each other in 5.5 years, when her brother died and Stephen was injured in the same explosion. When Stephen's brother, King Nathaniel comes into possession of the marriage license and insists that Stephen go to Corina to get an annulment, Stephen and Corina are forced to face some grim realities of their lives. They also find out the truth with some heavenly intervention.
How To Catch A Prince is a fantastic read. I loved the first two books and I think I loved each one a little more each time. Rachel Hauck writes with authority about Brighton, England, journalism, Royal Air Command, royalty, and life after a war. I loved reading about royalty and the inside of the life of a royal family. This book grabbed a hold of me from the beginning until the end. I found myself feeling like I was right there with the characters experiencing their experiences. As I read this book, I felt the emotion of the characters. I enjoyed all the characters but my favorite had to be Corina. Her ability to rely on her faith to carry her through and trusting God are commendable. Also her attitude and spunk really gave her a well rounded personality. I had a very hard time putting this book down. I found myself laughing in parts and crying in others (tears of joy and sadness). While this book is the third in the series I think it can be read as a stand alone. Rachel does a wonderful job of making sure new readers aren't lost in details and that those of us who read the first two don't lose interest. I highly recommend this book and this series to anyone who enjoys Christian Fiction Romance and Modern Princesses, it does not disappoint. I cannot wait to read more from Rachel Hauck she is definitely in my Top 10 Authors. I give this book 5 STARS.
An American heiress and a crown prince seem destined to be together. Will the devastation of war keep them apart forever? Find out in Rachel Hauck's new book, How to Catch a Prince.
