Once Upon a Prince
Author Rachel Hauck
Publisher Zondervan release May 7.13
I really was attracted to this book's published storyline and a totally fun cover. Unfortunately, it was more charade than fairy tale.
As much as I expect to like the leading lady of a story, I never came to any liking for Susanna. Unrealistic, lacking any depth of character or development, unbelievably immature for her stated age of 29; I couldn't imagine a 29 year old business woman acting, believing and speaking as she w ...more
*An update to my previous review* I have read this book a few times, because it is a favorite of mine. But this time I listened to the audio version. At first, Susanna's thick accent caught me off guard. But then I realized that it made perfect sense for the Georgia girl she is. The narrator did a very good job of creating different voices for the characters, both male and female, and providing appropriate accents depending on where they were from.

Ik vond het echt heel fijn om eens een christelijke roman te lezen. Ik lees ze eigenlijk nooit, terwijl het wel een groot deel van mijn leven is. Dus besloot ik dit boek maar eens op te pakken. Het klonk als een romantisch verhaal en dat was het ook zeker!

3.5 stars. Very charming and lots of history added in
This is my first Rachel Hauck book and I can assure you this won’t be the last. Once Upon a Prince follows the story of Susanna Truitt, the ordinary girl and Nathaniel,the royal prince.
Hauck simply throws you into the beautiful and grand life of Susanna & Nathaniel. I loved every bit about Once Upon a Prince. The story unfolds in such a compelling manner. It’s so sweet, it will make you cry a handful of times. The characters are all vivid and realistic. I couldn’t help but root for them.

Cute story...almost has a Cinderella vibe. Some heavy spirituality...almost too convenient that everyone is so reverent. I'm interested to see how this plays out in the next book. Things are set up for drastic changes.
