Review: How to Catch a Prince by Rachel Hauck

If you’re looking for a modern-day fairy tale with a glimpse into the eternal touching lives in a tangible way, then you have found it in How To Catch A Prince.

How to Catch A Prince by Rachel Hauck
Royal Wedding, Book 3
Zondervan, 2015

Corina and Prince Stephen may have not seen each other in six years, but that doesn’t mean their relationship is over. When their marriage is discovered as still legal and binding, Prince Stephen is pushed to re-open the door to Corina. But, while his plans are to quickly and painlessly have annulment papers signed, God has a different plan. Will Corina and Stephen learn to trust their hearts or forever let the past hold them back?

I loved the flashbacks to Corina and Stephen’s relationship, giving the reader glimpses into their love story. Despite their circumstances, they had fallen in love and seized the moments they had together for all they were worth. In present day, Stephen’s secret has put a wall between them, and his refusal to share with Corina is a big part of this book.

At times, I did feel like the argument the couple had was becoming circular. I was ready for something to happen to move past said argument, and when it did, what a breakthrough! I enjoyed it so much more from that point on (I just wish it had happened a bit earlier in the book). With the secret revealed, progress in their relationship could finally happen.

Death, painful memories, and unanswered questions surround their relationship. Will they find a way to love one another? With a bit of whimsy, Rachel Hauck takes readers on this journey to love well.

Once Upon a Prince remains my favorite of the series, and I think this book will appeal to any reader who loves contemporary with heart and fairy tales.

  1. This series is definitely a “joyful” one. Each book made me smile, yet despite what a reader might think, there is much more to these books than merely a “fairy tale.” Bravo Rachel – and great review, Cassie. 🙂
