It’s been five years since Avery Truitt and Prince Colin of Brighton Kingdom fell in love. But he broke her heart with no explanation.
Fast forward to present day, and Colin is Brighton’s most eligible bachelor now that cousin Stephen has married. When Avery’s father dies of a heart attack, she puts her life on hold and returns home to St. Simons Island, Georgia, to help Mama with the family restaurant. But Mama misses Avery’s sister Susanna, who lives four thousand miles away in Brighton Kingdom—and is expecting her first child. So Mama insists she and Avery spend the Christmas season in Brighton.
Colin and Avery are going to see each other a lot while she’s visiting. But she can’t forget the way he hurt her, and he didn’t expect his feelings to still be so strong.
Avery is torn between considering a future in Brighton and taking a coaching job in Georgia, and Colin is finally pushed to pursue what he really wants. Is it too late to convince Avery that she is his true love? And even if he does, will she make it to the chapel on Christmas Day to give him her heart?
I was in the mood for a good Christmas romance and this one fit the bill! Avery and Colin's love is already there from years before and he broke her heart. Just because there is a broken heart, doesn't mean the love goes away. That is why there are stories like this of second chances and God's timing.
I really liked the characters this author invents. They are now real to me and always will be. It was a good read seeing these two and what they had to go through to be together. The author doesn't just give it to them, there are obstacles. Still it is a feel good romance that makes me want to go back and read the previous books in the series just so I can meet some other wonderful characters.
This one was a 4/5 for me. It is a good, fast, romance read that you will enjoy!
