Regina Beswick never dreamed of faraway places. She’s happy with her life as a classic car mechanic and owner of a restoration shop.

But an unexpected visitor and the discovery of a fairytale, drawn by her great-grandma, causes Regina to wonder if she might be destined for something more.

Tanner Burkhardt, Minister of Culture for the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg, must convince the strong-willed Southerner, Miss Beswick, that she is his country’s long-lost princess. Failure could destroy his reputation and change his nation forever.

As Regina and Tanner face the challenges before them, neither are prepared for love to invade their hearts and change every thing they believe about themselves.

However, when a royal opponent nearly destroys Regina’s future, she must lean into God and trust He has sovereignly brought her to her true and final destiny.

This is the second book in the Royal Wedding Series.  I can't say that I was as excited about Reggie's character as I was of Susanna in the first book.  I didn't really connect to Reggie as much- I am not sure if it was because I didn't get a good feel for her as much or if I just didn't have as much in common.  I thought a few of the storylines started up at the beginning of the story really fizzled out (the garage, Mark) and I am not sure why they were even built up at the beginning of the story.

I really liked Tanner's character.  He was fun to read about, but the skeletons in his closet were a bit anticlimactic.  (Really making a mountain out of a molehill.)  I liked the history that was involved in the book.  I appreciated how the story was tied up at the end- and no character was forgotten.

All in all this was a decent sequel.  I can't say I liked it as much as the first book in the series, but I liked it enough to want to read the next book.
