About the book:

USA Today bestselling author Jenny Holiday concludes her beloved royal Christmas series with an unforgettable romance about a confident American woman and the strait-laced royal advisor who falls hopelessly in love with her.

Matteo Benz has spent his life serving at the pleasure of the Eldovian crown. His work is his life and his life, well…he doesn’t have much of one. When he is tasked to aid a management consultant who has been flown in to help straighten out the king’s affairs, he is instantly disturbed by her brash American manner—as well by an inconvenient attraction to the brainy beauty.

Cara Delaney is in Eldovia to help clean up the king’s financial affairs, but soon finds herself at odds with the very proper Mr. Benz. As intrigued by his good looks as she is annoyed by his dedication to tradition for its own sake, she slowly begins to see the real man behind the royal throne.

As they work together to return Eldovia to its former glory during the country’s magical Christmas season, Matteo discovers he is falling hopelessly in love with the unconventional American. But a man who has devoted his life to tradition doesn’t change easily. Can he become the man Cara needs, or will their love be another sacrifice to the crown?

So This Is Christmas by Jenny Holiday is the third book in the contemporary romance Christmas in Eldovia series. As with a lot of romance series the Christmas in Eldovia series changes the main characters in each book so they can all be read as a standalone or in any order if choosing to do so. The story is also told by changing the point of view between the characters to give both sides.

Matteo Benz has always been proud to serve the Eldovian crown but gets a bit concerned when a management consultant is hired to come in from America. Cara Delaney takes her job helping the king seriously and can’t help but be bothered by Matteo as their opinions keep clashing but soon the pair find they have one thing in common, their attraction.

I can definitely say first hand that the Eldovia series does read well as standalone novels as i missed reading the second book of the series myself but easily picked up this third. The setting of the country of Eldovia is certainly a unique one that I enjoy and diving into the different characters of the monarchy. The main characters in this third book were enjoyable and I couldn’t help but get caught up in their story and the author will continue to be one I always enjoy returning to.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
