My Thoughts 

Sometimes it’s August, but you read a book on bringing more hygge into your Xmas season, and then it starts to rain and it gets so cold while you’re sleeping with the window open. Waking up, cozy under my blanket (Christ, but I missed weather like this when we lived in Las Vegas!) and  in the mood for thinking ahead and mentally planning the winter holidays we celebrate, and then, like magic (or because you’re now thinking about the upcoming holidays), you want to read or watch something Hallmark-ian. 

Or, at least, I do. I think all those lingering shots of Folgers in every Christmas Hallmark movies I’ve personally ever seen - we got rid of cable 6 or 7 years ago - have possibly altered my reading/viewing tastes forever. I’m okay with this, because this is what I want to read - a great story with a dazzling Hallmark end - when I’m in the mood for comfort. I don’t possess the constitution to stress-eat, so instead I like to read Hallmark movies in convenient e-book form, re-listen to Pride and Prejudice, and bake. I love a good royal Christmas fairy tale romance, they really work for me, and I absolutely enjoyed this extremely fun novel. 

If you’re anything like me, I recommend this one.

She pretends to be a princess at children’s parties.

But can she melt a real prince’s frosty heart?

Get swept away by a Christmas story from Hallmark

and bestselling author Teri Wilson—

the queen of royal romance!

“I’m Prince Nikolas of San Glacera. Oh, you’ve never heard of us? Well, you’re not the only one. Our country relies on winter tourism, but we’re attracting fewer and fewer visitors. I admit it’s a problem. I just don’t think the solution is an American who likes to play dress-up.

You see, while I was away on a trip, my younger sister convinced the palace to hold a contest. The winner gets to star in our annual Ice Village festivities and accompany our royal family to holiday events.

And who did they choose? Gracie Clark, who runs a children’s party business and performs as—I kid you not—‘Princess Snowflake.’

Of course, I do respect the fact that she volunteers at children’s hospitals. I suppose to some, she might have a certain charm... But the whole cheap spectacle is beneath our dignity.

I’m not going to shirk my duty to my kingdom. I’ll go to every event with her. At least, once Christmas is over, she’ll be gone…”
