Book Review - Princess After After


But she's content to be a small-town girl, running a classic auto restoration shop, unaware a secret destiny awaits her. One that will leap from the pages of her grandmother's hand-painted book of fairytales.
Tanner Burkhardt is the stoic Minister of Culture for the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg. When he is tasked to retrieve the long-lost princess, he must overcome his fear of failure in order to secure his nation's future---and his own.
Yet lurking in the political shadows is a fierce opponent with sinister plans to abolish the throne forever. Overwhelmed with opposition, Regina must decide if she's destined to restore old cars or an ancient nation. Together---with a little divine intervention---Regina and Tanner discover the truth of her heritage and the healing power of true love.

This was a lovely story and I enjoyed it so much! This is the second book in "The Royal Wedding Series" but you don't need to read the first book to understand what's going on. Of course, you'll want to read the first book because it was wonderful, too, but you won't be lost in this book.

Reggie is a former accountant living her dream of restoring cars and it's so exciting to see her excitement as she leaves behind something that really didn't fulfill her to something that does. I love her relationship with her father's old friend and with all the men in the garage she works with.

Then she is thrown into a new world...a world of royalty, queens, kings, and so forth. It was a magical story full of wonderful characters and just a great story all the way around. It reminded me of the "Princess Diaries" movie in many way, but much better.

You'll love how it's like a fairy-tale yet there's such a beautiful theme of faith and redemption throughout the whole book. God is a huge part of this book in a really beautiful way. I really liked how Reggie comes to realize that what she thinks is her dream may not be the dream God has for her. I really liked the love story, too, and all the romance.

All in all, it's just a really beautiful book and definitely a page turner! I think you'll really enjoy it as much as I did. I give it 5 out of 5 stars!
