For the last twelve years, Susana has been waiting for her long-time boyfriend Adam to propose. When he takes her for a romantic walk on the beach to tell her that he found the right ring but not the right girl, she's devastated not because of her love for him but because her lifelong plan fell apart. Will she find that God has a bigger plan than the one she made?
I like the theme of this book--waiting for God's best instead of settling. I liked Susana and Nathaniel. I felt Susana's turmoil as her life spiraled out of control with nothing going right...boyfriend dumps her, her business flounders, and her father becomes ill. I enjoyed her family's dynamics, full of colorful characters. Nathaniel's family is also well-developed although not as likable. They fit the stereotype royal family with traditions over feelings.
However, the book didn't grip me like Hauck's other books. I don't know what it was because it was a cute, fun read. Perhaps it was the rush of the romance or the fact it reminded me of the second Princess Diaries movie.
Fans of Christian fiction will enjoy this Happily Ever After read, but if you want something a little deeper, try Hauck's book The Wedding Dress.
I received this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts are my own.
