My Thoughts About the Book:
Oh my stars! I am not sure I have ever cried as much over a book as I did this one. Rachel Hauck is a literary genius and as much as I loved the first book in this series “Once Upon a Prince”. With characters that are real, rich with depth and heartache this has quickly become my favorite Christian Fiction book this year.
I finished the book in one day, I set aside a whole afternoon to sit back, pull up a blanket and a cuppa coffee because I needed to take a break. Not a get away and run around break, but a break from the hustle and bustle of every day life. The great thing is that Rachel Hauck delivered on that promise. I won’t ruin in for you, but there’s a scene towards the end of the book that I nearly lost it while I was right there in the scene with the prince.
As someone who also writes I am a sucker for every single detail in the book — I read reviews inside the cover and all the acknowledgments in the back cover as well. What I found in the back of the book is that writing this particular book wasn’t an easy process for the author, as a matter of fact, she mentioned that in the face of great obstacles she called out for prayer from her friends and family to help carry her through. The most amazing part of it all — in my opinion, this was one of her best books ever.
Don’t take my word, go out and grab a copy of “How To Catch A Prince” for yourself!

Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom is a former Royal Air Command lieutenant turned star rugby player, trying to make sense of his life after the devastation of war. When his brother, King Nathaniel, discovers Stephen’s pre war secret, he must deal with an aspect of his life he longed to forget. But how can he do so without exposing the truth and breaching national security?
Yet, true love has a destiny all it’s own. As the cathedral bells peal through Cathedral City, Corina and Stephen must chose to answer the call of love on their hearts. Or let it be lost forever?
