Rowan Palotay feels like she’s managed to get herself put onto the naughty list this holiday season when it comes to her job as a reporter. One little mistake has her sidelined when a big story hits her small town of Marietta, Montana of a visiting Prince. What Rowan never expected was to cross paths with the prince while out dog walking and make what she thinks is one of the worst first impressions ever.
Prince Theodore Chenery is in Marietta to meet his grandparents after his mother’s passing. After running into Rowan he is immediately intrigued by her and insists that she is the one who will handle his interview while he is visiting. The two share a connection but with royal obligations standing in the way the prince begins to question his duties.
Once Upon a Royal Christmas is not the first book I’ve read that takes place in this small town of Marietta and I can honestly say that they have all been quite lovely reads. It’s such a lovely little place with wonderful characters that it was not surprising to me in the least to enjoy this one quite a bit too. There’s just something about the holidays and this small town that is quite appealing this time of year and I was happy to venture into this story.
Along with the small town holiday charm this book brings to the table you have a story that would be every young girls fantasy. Who wouldn’t love to meet their very own Prince Charming and have him live up to be everything you’d ever dreamed of? The characters in this story were given their time to get to know one another as they dealt with their paths crossing and of course it turns into a wonderful holiday romance.
Overall, I’d definitely recommend checking out this along with the other Marietta holiday romance reads, such a lovely setting and characters in each story.
