Royal Holiday by Jasmine Guillory

In my favourite of the Wedding Date series, the protagonist is Vivian Forest, mother of Maddie whose story was introduced in Book 3 of the series. Maddie is chosen to dress the Duchess of Sussex over the Christmas holiday in Sandringham and invites Vivian to accompany her so that they can spend some time together over Christmas. While Maddie is busy dressing the Duchess, Vivian meets Malcolm Hudson who works for the Queen. Vivian is not only smitten by Malcolm, but star struck by the environment she is spending Christmas in. Malcolm encourages Vivian to spend a few extra days with him in London prior to her return to California and with a push from Maddie to live for the moment, she agrees to extend her stay. Life at home alone becomes a lot more depressing once Vivian returns to her everyday life, as she begins to learn more about herself and realizes what she really wants in life.

I was thoroughly entertained by this book. I enjoy books about the holiday season and books that highlight the differences in cultures. The book was sweet and full of charm. The story really spoke to me as someone over 40 and wish that more rom-coms were targeted towards this demographic.

Thank you to Edelweiss + and Berkley Publications for the opportunity to read an ARC of the book in exchange for the honest review provided here.

My rating:  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5.
