This book was sent to me ages ago by the publisher. I had every intention of reading and reviewing it in a timely manner. And I didn't offer to someone else to read, so I was very interested in the storyline. Apologies for the late review. But is a good review ever too late? Maybe the timing is kind of like midnight striking. It is about a prince. Enough of that. Rachel Hauck is a very gifted storyteller. She weaves a tale of international love, kingdoms, princes and throws in almost every little girls' original dream, to become a princess.
Susanna Truitt finds herself at the backside of her dream life when her little little castle of cards comes crashing down around her ears. Her prince charming has found a future happily ever after, unfortunately, that doesn't include Susanna. Designing beautiful surroundings as a career somehow falls flat, she can barely give away her services. And Susanna sees her likely future as alone and working in the family restaurant. Not that that's a bad thing...but....
In steps Nate, with a burden of his own. And limitations, and sacrifices he must make. Plus one must consider the large pond that separates Nate and Susanna. Is there a happily ever after for either of them?
If you haven't read this book, and you have a hankering to do so, I'm pretty sure you won't be sorry. There's a whole lot of charming in it, prince and otherwise.
