Princess Ever After - Rachel Hauck - Review and Giveaway! - Two ways to win!

4 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
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.

MY REVIEW -
Well its about time! I have been wanting to read one of Rachel's books for a long time now. I read the series that Sara Evans and Rachel Hauck wrote together but have not read any of Rachel's.

This was a very cute, sweet and very interesting story. I did find it a teensie slow in spots and it seemed longer than its 350 pages, BUT half way through the book it got a lot better for me and found it a very fun and interesting read! Basically this was a grown-up version of "The Princess Diaries" (which I loved!) with a lot more twists and turns.

The character development was great. I really loved Reggie! What a character she was! So bold and tomboyish and outspoken. It was fun to get to know her.
Then there's the much more reserved and refined - Tanner. Loved him too!

If you are looking for a modern day fairytale story about an unlikely princess - this is just the one for you!
If you loved the Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot or loved the movie with Anne Hathaway - you will love this book!
Or if you just love a sweet romance with fun characters and a different kind of storyline - this is the book for you!

Thank you Litfuse for sending me this book to read and review!
