Synopsis & Details:
A royal wedding. A meddlesome mother. An unexpected union. A European getaway during the Christmas holiday is exactly what veterinarian Katrina “Kat” Parsons needs. She can’t wait to be a bridesmaid in her childhood friend’s royal wedding, but she hopes to steer clear of the read more... bride’s arrogant older brother.
Crown Prince Guillaume wants his younger sister’s wedding day to be perfect, but he’s suspicious of Kat. He and his mother on are on high alert, afraid Kat is not just there for the wedding, but also to find a prince of her own.
But when Kat’s kindness and generosity prove them wrong, the prince realizes there’s more to her than he ever imagined. Can he trust his heart or will he lose the one woman he can’t live without?
The romance kind of comes out of nowhere, I'd seen the build up, but then it appeared a tad early.
In my opinion, it could have used a few more pages to develop.
Some parts of this book felt really cliche, and not in the good way (like with Kasie West's P.S. I Like You), but in a cringy-ish way.
At first Gill really annoyed me, his reasons for disliking Kat just seemed extremely immature.
90% of the notes I made while reading, were just me being a 100% annoyed, with Gill, thinking about how Kat, was a gold (royal) digger.
However he really began turning around towards the second half of the book, his POV quickly became my favorite after that.
As for Kat, I never felt like her character really developed, she felt a bit flat.
Christmas at the Castle had a couple really humorous moments, and the second half of the book was definitely better than the first. If you're looking for something cute to wave in the winter holiday season, then this one might be up your alley.
