Readers looking for a light, fun read full of holiday mischief will be delighted by Samantha Hastings’ A Royal Christmas Quandary, perfect for fans of A Christmas Prince.
When you spend Christmas in a castle, anything is possible.
1860. Lady Alexandrina Gailey is looking forward to a cozy holiday at Windsor Castle with her best friend, Princess Alice, and her long-time crush, Lord George Worthington. But Drina’s plans are all but dashed when Alice’s parents, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, declare that Alice must choose one of two royal princes to become engaged to before Christmas.
There’s just one problem: George, a junior member of the Foreign Office, has accidentally misplaced one of the princes.
Together, Drina and George scour the town of Windsor for the missing prince, desperately hoping to deliver him to the royal dinner party with the queen none the wiser. They might just need a royal Christmas miracle to pull it off.
Samantha did it again! I love her books so much and this one was no exception. I love the witty characters she creates in the world of Victorian England! I love how she incorporates a bit of mystery in her historical romance settings. There’s always a something to be solved and I enjoy her ability to bring her love interests together in order to solve them.
Lady Alexandrina’s parents are pushing her to marry in order to secure their family fortunes as they have no male heir. Drina is now on a mission to find a way to claim her status as heir to her family name without having to marry. She is determined to find her independence.
George’s father is pressuring him into becoming an Officer of Foreign Affairs when all he wants to do is become an engineer. When his father bestows that task of finding Prince Albert and bringing him to the royal dinner everything goes awry.
George recruits Drina to help him find the missing prince which foils both Drina’s plans at finding a way out of marriage and George’s need to confront his father about the career he truly wants to pursue. The two of them have great chemistry with one another throughout this adventure. I also really enjoyed the friendships Drina has with those around her in the palace. In the end these two make for a perfect pair.
This gave me the beginnings of all those Christmas feels. I am now bound to find myself searching for Hallmark Christmas movies to sit down to watch while sipping on some hot cocoa.
If you’ve loved Samantha’s previous books than I know you’ll enjoy this one. I will gladly recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a fun holiday read and any other time of the year as well! It’s just so fun!
