About the book:
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 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?
The cover caught my eye as soon as I saw it. I’ve read a couple of the other books in this series and was curious about this one.
I’ve always liked Madeline and Hyacinth and find they add just the right amount of humor to the story. I liked this storyline probably a bit better than the others I’ve read in this series.
I was happy that Mrs. Truitt made the decision to spend time away from work and spend time with her family in England. The pageantry of the Harvest Celebration which is the start of Christmas Season was written beautifully by the author.
It was also a chance for Avery to see Colin again even though she wasn’t too happy at the thought of facing him again.
There have been changes in both of their lives which leaves Avery wondering if there’s a possibility of a happy ending for them.
This was a fun read and could easily be enjoyed by the younger reader.
A nice addition to this series.
