Book Review: A March Bride (Rachel Hauck)

The only thing that trumps hot cheese pizza is true love!

I was searching Amazon and Goodreads for Christian Romance Novels to read today however, no plot of the stories I’ve seen interests me. Until I run into A March bride by Rachel Hauck. Remember Once Upon a Prince last time? The story of Prince, turned King Nathaniel and the landscape architect Suzanna Jean? It’s a continuation of their love story. God is really so good for showing me the book! So, here is my review which contains some spoilers.

In the beginning, I quite hated Suz for being a brat and for going back home because of citizenship issues leaving Prince Nate behind. However, I loved how the author used that situation to inculcate the word of God in the story—-asking for God’s wisdom, the fact that Jesus gave His citizenship for us and the comparison of Suz to Esther.

I so loved how Prince Nate planned to woo back Suzanna with the help of the family and the people of St Simons. It was way cool!Way cool—as described! And, I was so touched by the speech of Daddy Gib in their surprised wedding.I really shed tears! Daddy’s girl here.

Compared to Once upon A Prince, it was shorter and simple. Nevertheless, it made me feel good and happy. It brought me to the island of St Simon and the kingdom of Brighton. That is the best part of reading a book for me, losing myself!

Now I am looking forward to the story of Prince Colin and Avery which will be released this year, sometime in October.Happy reading!

Book Review: Once Upon A Prince (Rachel Hauck)

Book Review: Once upon A Prince (Rachel Hauck)

This is my very first of the hundreds of book reviews to come. I spent most of my unemployed months watching feel-good movies and last night I decided to resume reading books. Who knows, one day I will become one of those authors in the best-sellers section of popular bookstores (Yeah right….In my dreams!)But it is not bad to dream anyway. So, here comes my first book review which I just finished reading an hour ago.

Once Upon A Prince (Rachel Hauck)

once-upon-a-prince

I am a sucker for royal stories and so I am warning you, I am quite biased here. I so loved the well-written story. It’s sooooo cute! Like I have mentioned, I am fond of feel-good stories, in movies or books… I have always preferred happy ever after over cliff hangers and so this book is included in my list.

Another warning, this book is Christian Romance and it is safe to say that it lacks smexiness. Therefore, there are no sexy scenes included which, some readers are dying to read. Nevertheless, it did not spoil my interest in reading the story.

What I loved about the book is how the author made use of Christian values, of surrendering to God, of trusting His sovereignty. I fancy the story of Daddy Gib and Mama Glo who once were lost but found a way to happily ever after again. Thanks be to God for restoring broken pieces and for giving the unexpected blessing named Avery. The emotional moment between Mama and Suz almost made me cry too. Then there is the weird, half-sane fairy godmother Aurora who speaks in riddles and disappears abruptly.

It is a story of a damsel in distress saved by a prince who always comes to her rescue. Their moments of praying together is one of my most loved scenes. Talk about #relationshipgoals. Oh!Don’t we all want to marry a prince? A Christian royalty who is the defender of the faith?

I thoroughly enjoyed this fun, delightful story. A fairytale, a faith-based novel.

I cannot wait to read the next book in the series!
