Princess Ever After Book Review & Tour

Princess Ever After
About the book: A Royal Wedding Book
Regina Beswick was born to be a princess.

But she's content to be a small-town girl, running a classic auto restoration shop, unaware a secret destiny awaits her. One that will leap from the pages of her grandmother's hand-painted book of fairytales.

Tanner Burkhardt is the stoic Minister of Culture for the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg. When he is tasked to retrieve the long-lost princess, he must overcome his fear of failure in order to secure his nation's future---and his own.

Yet lurking in the political shadows is a fierce opponent with sinister plans to abolish the throne forever. Overwhelmed with opposition, Regina must decide if she's destined to restore old cars or an ancient nation. Together---with a little divine intervention---Regina and Tanner discover the truth of her heritage and the healing power of true love.

My Thoughts: 

It's not every day a new fairy-tale is created. We've all heard or read the Grimm brothers or the Hans Christian Anderson stories. How Rumplestiltskin tried to trick the queen, how sleeping beauty was finally awakened out of her sleep, how Cinderella beat the odds and became a princess after all. I knew I had never fully outgrown those childhood tales that had danced in my head while I slept. My bookshelves can prove it. But never did I think I would come to love a new fairy tale written in contemporary times. I just didn't think there was an author that could do the genre justice. I was wrong.

Ms. Hauck is a very gifted author and has crafted a story that is so perfectly balanced in its romantic elements, its government problems, and its coming to grips with who you really are issues and combined it all with her trademark hilarious wit and humor. Action? Check. Romance? Check. An intriguing puzzle? Check. A regular person who has been given the chance of a lifetime to change the course of history? Check. Regina Beswick charges onto the scene and captures not only your heart, but the heart of a nation as she learns step by scary step that God does indeed rule over the affairs of men and gives kingdoms to whosoever He will.
