Goodreads:  It’s been five years since Avery Truitt and Prince Colin of Brighton Kingdom fell in love. But he broke her heart with no explanation.

Fast forward to present day, and Colin is Brighton’s most eligible bachelor now that cousin Stephen has married. When Avery’s father dies of a heart attack, she puts her life on hold and returns home to St. Simons Island, Georgia, to help Mama with the family restaurant. But Mama misses Avery’s sister Susanna, who lives four thousand miles away in Brighton Kingdom—and is expecting her first child. So Mama insists she and Avery spend the Christmas season in Brighton.

Colin and Avery are going to see each other a lot while she’s visiting. But she can’t forget the way he hurt her, and he didn’t expect his feelings to still be so strong.

Avery is torn between considering a future in Brighton and taking a coaching job in Georgia, and Colin is finally pushed to pursue what he really wants. Is it too late to convince Avery that she is his true love? And even if he does, will she make it to the chapel on Christmas Day to give him her heart?

Kritters Thoughts:  The fourth in a series that are interconnected but focus on different characters, this book focuses on Prince Colin and Avery Truitt.  It had been awhile since I had read the first three books, but it was easy to dip back into this world of sorts.

I would say out of all the characters and pairings in this series, I think I liked this one the least.  I just couldn't fall in love with either of them and their love story just wasn't floating off the page.  I knew going in that this being a Christian fiction romance that we wouldn't have any steamy bedroom scenes, but even with that this book just didn't get there for me.  I loved the others, I think this one just flopped.

This wouldn't keep me from continuing to read Rachel Hauck as an author, but I think this series is done and I am glad. 

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
