Review: A Royal Christmas by Melody Carlson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Adelaide Smith is too busy for fairy tales. She's been working hard to put herself through law school and now that the end is in sight, she's determined to stay focused on her goals. Then she receives a letter notifying her that she has been found through a DNA registry to be a direct descendant of King Maximillian V, the ruler of a small Eastern European principality called Montovia. She's understandably skeptical. This is the stuff of cheesy made-for-TV movies, not real life.

Although the pieces of this surprising family puzzle seem too good to be true, curiosity gets the best of her. At the king's invitation, Adelaide embarks on a Christmas break trip that is chock-full of surprises, including a charming village, an opulent palace, family mysteries, royal jealousies, a handsome young member of Parliament--and the chance at a real fairy tale romance with a happily-ever-after ending.

Spend this Christmas with bestselling author Melody Carlson as she whisks you away to a royal holiday you'll never forget!

My Review: 

A Royal Christmas is a delightful modern day fairy tale by Melody Carlson. I enjoyed this quick story and meeting Adelaide. On every page, I could not help but think that it would be a perfect Christmas Hallmark movie to be watched year after year. I loved travelling to the charming Montovia. I thought this was a delightful and heartwarming romance. At just under one hundred seventy pages, it was easy to have the whole book read in one sitting. It was great.

I am giving A Royal Christmas four and a half stars. I believe readers who enjoy reading Christmas time romances will want to pick this one up and add it to their holiday reading. As always, I will be looking for more by Melody Carlson in the future.

I received a copy of Melody Carlson’s A Royal Christmas from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
