Book Review: Once Upon a Royal Christmas

Happy Monday, Friends!

Can you believe we’re a week closer to Thanksgiving! I hope you have lots of books ready to go for your day off. If I could, I’d like to suggest Once Upon a Royal Christmas by Teri Wilson to kick off your holiday season. Grab a cup of tea (or coffee) and read on!

About the Book

he pretends to be a princess at children’s parties.
But can she melt a real prince’s frosty heart?
Get swept away by a Christmas story from Hallmark
and bestselling author Teri Wilson—
the queen of royal romance!

“I’m Prince Nikolas of San Glacera. Oh, you’ve never heard of us? Well, you’re not the only one. Our country relies on winter tourism, but we’re attracting fewer and fewer visitors. I admit it’s a problem. I just don’t think the solution is an American who likes to play dress-up.

You see, while I was away on a trip, my younger sister convinced the palace to hold a contest. The winner gets to star in our annual Ice Village festivities and accompany our royal family to holiday events.

And who did they choose? Gracie Clark, who runs a children’s party business and performs as—I kid you not—‘Princess Snowflake.’

Of course, I do respect the fact that she volunteers at children’s hospitals. I suppose to some, she might have a certain charm… But the whole cheap spectacle is beneath our dignity.

I’m not going to shirk my duty to my kingdom. I’ll go to every event with her. At least, once Christmas is over, she’ll be gone…”

My Thoughts

Once Upon a Royal Christmas has all the things I like in a Christmas novel. It’s filled with snow, hot chocolate, Christmas traditions, and hope. Since this is also a royal novel, I looked for those delightful aspects of royal life I’ve come to love in my books.

Teri Wilson is great at creating royals who you can relate to and root for. I found that true in Once Upon a Royal Christmas as well. This is definitely a book you want on your Christmas reading list. If you’ve never read a royal book, definitely try this one on. You’ll love the characters.
