Once Upon a Prince
Susanna Truitt always had a plan for her life, but when that plan falls apart, she must fully trust God with her future. Her boyfriend of 12 years dumps her; she loses her job; and she is forced to move out of her cottage. Nothing seems to be going her way. Even when she meets a man and enjoys a few dates with him, he returns to his Euorpean home after 2 weeks. But this man, Nate, is really Prince Nathaniel II, and Susanna's future might just become her own fairy tale.
Initially, Susanna does not know that Nate is a prince but eventually learns the truth. What I liked is that this was not a belabored point in the story. There is some time and confusion between meeting Nate and discovering that he is a prince but not so much time that the reader is annoyed.
I am surprised that I liked this book. Usually young adult fiction is immoral, predictable, and overly romantic. Instead, this book was delightful, engaging, and thoroughly enjoyable.
Thomas Nelson provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for this review which I freely give.
