Princess Ever After Book Review

The Royal Wedding Series
Book Two

SUMMARY:  Regina Beswick didn't know she was born a princess.
     She's content to be a small-town girl, running a classic auto restoration shop, unaware that a secret destiny awaits her.  One that will leap from the pages of her grandmother's hand-painted book of fairy tales.
     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 whether 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.

REVIEW:  I like this book!  Regina is so cool!!  Even though she has struggled with finding out she is a true princess, she has been preparing for this role all her life.  Regina relies on her faith in God more and more as she has to make tough decisions.  I like how, once she goes to Hessenberg, she starts to heal a split between factions - one side wanting to return as a duchy; the other, wanting the stay as a protectorate of the kingdom of Brighton - without even trying.
     The only thing that I found disappointing was that it left out the events of her coronation and the first year of her rule.  Even though it would have added more to the story, I would have loved to see how Regina continues to adjust to being a royal and how the people react and respond to her rule.
     I really enjoyed this book!!  Reading it makes me want to read the first one and any others this author writes.
