How to Catch a Prince by Rachel Hauck is about Corina Del Rey, an American heiress, who is just coming out of the grief of her twin brother’s combat death five years ago, and Prince Stephen of Brighton-strong and handsome, yet tortured by the memories of his time of service in Afghanistan. Corina and Stephen had shared a special connection known only to them, yet now they are separated by miles and years. After Corina is visited by Stephen with some upsetting news, she pours out her heart to God, and is willing to do what God wants in her relationship with Stephen. Then she is sent to Brighton for her work as a journalist, and the angelic fun begins!
There is so much to love about this book! It is set in the current day, alluding to actual events and personalities, which makes it so believable. Both Stephen and Corina are strong, likable characters, because of their upbringing in the public eye. It is very quotable. Corina is told about her trip to Brighton: “You came to answer true love’s call.”
I just loved being swept up in this story! I highly recommend it for those who like romance and fairy tales. It is the third book in the Royal Wedding series, but anyone would enjoy it even if they had not read the previous two. I have read the previous books in the series, Once Upon a Prince and Princess Ever After, and I highly recommend those books as well.
