Royal Holiday by Jasmine Guillory

Jasmine Guillory is an author I have come to count on for fun, contemporary romance. I first fell in love with her last year with The Wedding Date, and I also enjoyed her second book, The Proposal. I also have a soft spot for all things Christmas romance, so when I learned she had penned a Christmas love story called Royal Holiday, I was eager to pick it up.

When Vivian Forest's daughter has a work opportunity to be the personal stylist for a Duchess in England over the holidays, she invites Vivian to accompany her on this trip. While in England, Vivian meets Malcolm Hudson, the Queen's Personal Secretary and so begins a charming holiday fling.

Royal Holiday reads exactly like a Netflix Christmas movie. There's royalty, champagne, mistletoe kisses, and two people who come from different backgrounds. It was refreshing to read a romance where both of the main characters are over 50 (because, let's face it, friends...I'm closer to 50 than I am to 20), and I loved imagining that the unnamed "Duke and Duchess" were Harry and Meghan.

If you're looking for a cozy, cute holiday story to read by the tree with a cup of hot chocolate, pick up Royal Holiday. It's available now from your local library or favourite bookseller.
