Princess Ever After by Rachel Hauck

Get ready for Rachel Hauck's newest heroine, Regina Beswick. Book two Princess Ever After, in Hauck's The Royal Wedding series, is Princess Diaries for grown-ups!
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 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 everything 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.

Here is my review of this engaging novel:

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Rachel Hauck and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Princess Ever After" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.
Reggie doesn’t ever want to go back to being a CPA.  But now that she and her business partner, Al, have successfully restored a Dodge Charger, she’s pretty sure she has the makings of a brilliant, new career.  The business appears to be taking off when they receive a request to restore a Duesenberg and when she talks an acquaintance into letting her restore his Corvette.  This is the most inconvenient time for a diplomat to arrive in America from Hessenberg, thrusting Reggie into a new life adventure beyond her wildest dreams.

“Princess Ever After”, the second book in the Royal Wedding series by Rachel Hauck, is another immensely entertaining novel.  Every little girl dreams of being a princess.  This book had me thinking about two things that I pray will be life changing.  First, what would I do if someone showed up on my doorstep telling me I was a princess?  How would I behave?  Would it be exciting or more frightening?  Second, I AM A PRINCESS – a daughter of the King of Kings!  So, maybe I should behave a bit differently than I do.  Maybe I should be a little intimidated by the responsibility but at the same time OVER THE MOON regarding the privilege!
This incredibly thought-provoking and entertaining novel wouldn’t let me put it down.  If I could have, I would have read it in one sitting.
