    Christmas at the Castle is book three in the Ever After series by Melissa McCloneKatrina “Kat” Parsons grew up knowing that she was not important to her parents They dumped her off at her Grandparents house when she was a little girl in order to pursue their research in Africa where they eventually died Her Grandparents loved her and provided her with a wonderful home but they still couldn’t fill the void left by her parentsKat first met her best friend Sophie when they were just little girls at summer camp They were fast friends and inseparable She couldn’t say the same for Sophie’s older brother Gill He seemed to dislike her from the start As the years past Kat and Sophie’s friendship grew stronger and it seemed Gill’s feelings towards her did the same It took Sophie a very long time to finally admit to Kat that she and her brother were royalty They lived in a country called Alistonia Their parents were the King and ueen of AlistoniaNow fifteen years later Kat has finally achieved her dream of becoming a veterinarian She has mountains of student loans but loves what she is doing Her grandparents have passed away and she is alone Her best friend Sophie is getting married and Kat is to be her bridesmaid So she is traveling abroad for the first time to be the perfect bridesmaid to her friend Crown Prince Guillaume or Gill always thought Kat was a bad influence on his sister He can’t believe she will be here in the castle for two long weeks He wonders what Kat’s end game really is Maybe she is looking to snag herself a royal husband to pay off all those student loans Well it certainly wouldn’t be him Gill is next in line to the throne When he chooses a wife his mother will retire and he will take the throne His mother would have to approve his choice of a wife “Maybe there was to Prince Annoying than she was giving him credit for Dare she find out?” As Gill and Kat spend time together they finally begin to see each other as they really are and bonds begin to form I small kiss under the mistletoe changes everything But Gill’s mother is determined to keep these two apart To say she is a meddling motherueen would definitely be an understatement Gill and Kat do still manage to find time to spend together though and feelings of respect and maybe even love developI admit I love a good royal romance That girly girl in me that dreamed of prince charming and poufy ball gowns wakes up and smiles This book definitely filled all those fantasies This is just one of those books that takes you to your happy place and leaves you with a smile Kat might have had a stethoscope instead of glass slippers but she got her Cinderella moment You’ll have to read the book to see if she gets her prince charming

    Kindle freebie romance time again Here we have a slightly Cinderella ish plot about a female veterinarian Kat Parsons who is the longtime American BFF of Sophie a princess of a small made up European country Princess Sophie has a hot older brother the crown prince who views Kat with deep suspicion because she must be trying to get her claws into some hapless royal guy And a mother the ueen of their country who does NOT want her children marrying anyone but the bluest of bluebloods Which Kat definitely is not but she is a dedicated friend and great vetPlus Christmas throws tinsel in air There's lots of silliness here that I may or may not decide to probably won't take the time to pick apart like lots of completely baseless suspicion of Kat's motives on the prince's side purely to increase the drama factor and an improbable plot that will reuire a rock hard commitment to suspending disbelief But if this type of fluffy romance is your brain candy of choice grab it while it's free It's cute and fun and delivers fairly well on the romantic feelz This is one of those series where there are some secondary characters milling around who have been in the prior books but it works fine as a stand alone read

    “Like most girls I fantasized about being some sort of a princess” Julie Andrews Book 1 The Honeymoon PrizeBook 2 The Cinderella PrincessBook 3 Christmas at the CastleBook 3 in the Ever After series This was a free offering through and was a feel good HEA story that was clean and easy to read It does well as a stand a lone I had not read the other books and I did not even notice I was reading it out of seuence The crossover with the characters from the previous stories was smooth and seamless It was really well doneIn the prologue we have three children meeting for the first time at Summer Camp and forging what was to become a lifelong friendship Well with the two girls anyway as the older brother of one of them was too cool to be bothered with girls The brother and sister Gill and Sophia were visiting from Europe and Kat short for Katrina was an AmericanFast forward several years and Dr Kat Parsons is working at a veterinarian clinic as part of a work agreement toward student loan forgiveness We also learn that Sophia and Gill are royalty and Sophia has asked Kat to be one of her bridesmaids In a royal wedding a Princess does not have a maid of honor Her brother Gill is the Crown Prince and their mother ueen Louise is very much a part of their lives Mother of the bride and all the ueen is driving her daughter to distraction Gill and his mother are very suspicious of Kat and her American ways They think she has too much influence over Sophia and attempt to keep her in her place The ueen is horrid and treats Kat with arrogance and disdain Poor Kat tries so hard to be good in their presence for Sophia’s sake The story is predictable in that we have Mama’s interference Gill’s suspicious mind and fighting his attraction to Kat while Kat does a bit of avoidance herself The star of the show has to be Gill’s dog Max and as the hero adds the comedic relief He was a sweetie and everyone loved Max Well nearly everyone The following uote will make sense when you read the story I could have left off the second sentence but then it wouldn’t have made sense “I feel like a princess with a knife I’ve wanted to be an Iron Chef forever” Alex Guarnaschelli

    Katrina “Kat” Parsons and Sophie von Strausser have been best friends since meeting at summer camp years ago Of course at the time Kat had no idea that Sophie was a real live princess Now Sophie is getting married during the holiday season and Kat will be spending Christmas in Alistonia in a castle of all places This vacation would be wonderful if it weren't for Sophie's brother Crown Prince Guillaume For some reason he doesn't like or trust Kat He's convinced she is on the prowl for a rich husband while she's at the castle and he won't let any scandal ruin his sisters wedding So he plans to keep a very close eye on her The time he spends with Kat the he likes her though and soon fears he may just lose his own heart to the lovely KatThis is a fantastic story and a book I would recommend to everyone

    I love a nice bit of romantic fluff at times and this is that with the added benefit of it being at Christmastime An anonymous European monarchy an American veterinarian a lovelorn dog and a yuletide wedding of the hero's sister who is also the heroine's BFF Some lovely ingredients for a chilly December night with a dog at your feet and a cup of hot apple cider by your side

    This reminded me strongly of The Princess Diaries And once that happened I knew I'll end up liking it no matter what actually happens plot wise Besides I needed a HEA story The male lead is an ass during most of the book but I could understand why he would think the worst of people I actually felt bad for the poor prince Kat the female lead is adorable and easy to root for So if you're looking for a light fluffy Christmas read don't hesitate to pick Christmas at the Castle

    I received a free copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewEvery summer Katrina Parson would spend her days at summer camp which is where she met her best friend Sophie and her annoying brother Gill Since Sophie was from another country the girls weren't able to see each other the rest of the year but still kept in touch and shared everything about their lives with each other And after Sophie tells Kat her secret she finds it really hard to believe it at first since Sophie is a princess from a faraway land that Kat knows nothing aboutBut being a princess isn't really all rainbows and butterflies Sophie has a hard time being able to live her life the way she wants to so she and Kat made a deal every time the princess wanted to go against her family's wishes she could blame it all on her American friend KatNow several years after they met at summer camp the princess is getting married and wishes for her best friend to be her bridesmaid so Kat gets on a plane and leaves her country for the first time to attend a royal wedding nonethelessAlready there Kat struggles trying to find a way to make Gill and his mother the ueen like her and she finds it really hard to do so since Sophie has always blamed her crazy ideas on her and nobody but them knew the truthI really liked Sophie's and Kat's friendship they were adorable and always stood up for each other well if we forget about the whole thing about Sophie blaming everything on Kat that really got me all worried and made me want to slap Gill and the ueen because they were incredibly rude And I know I know they didn't know the truth but even so being rude like that is not nice behavior just saying Something I loved about this book is that it tells the story from both Kat's and Gill's POV that way we also get to know what's going on in Gill's headAnd now let's just talk about this guyI'm not sure how I feel about him I mean I already said I felt like smacking him at first for being so rude but then all those times he mentions his American ex girlfriend being awful and how he can't trust Kat because she's obviously awful as well Come onIt also made me worried to see him do every little thing his mother said I know she's the ueen and all but seriously have some personality GillEven so things between him and Kat end up great and it's all really sweet although I think it all happened way too fast they should relax a little bit it's the 21st century after all no need to rush things and think about marriage just yet even if he needs to get married to rule it'll happen eventually you knowAnd oh God his dog was adorable Definitely a great touch to it all I loved reading about little MaxA very cute book to curl up with during Christmas time More reviews on my blog Lipstick and Mocha
