What Happens At Christmas

What Happens At Christmas - Victoria Alexander Camille is bound and determined to make this the most perfect Christmas for Nikolai, a foreign Prince who wishes to be known as a Duke. She hopes that with the magical idyllic Christmas she can solicit a proposal and become a Princess.

After convincing her twin sister Beryl to go along with her scheme to hire an acting troupe to pretend to be her perfect family, they make their way to the family estate. Little does she know this is going to be one entertaining holiday.

With actors who can’t remember who they are, or anyone else's names, one who wishes her character was a ‘tart’, an uncle who tells wild fantastical stories and a man from her past who she would really rather just forget. Can she pull of this without Nikolai finding out?

I really felt for Camille, she wanted nothing but perfection and ended up with a comical potential disaster on her hands. The troupe she hired aren’t quite what she expected! There were some pretty entertaining moments that had me laughing out loud.

Things really go over the top for Camille when Grayson shows up. He professed love for her years ago and then vanished. Leaving both of them with wounded hearts, and her marrying another. Now that he’s back, he wants to make amends and not lose her again! Unfortunately for Gray – Nikolai has his sights set on Camille.

Would I recommend this book? Overall it was an entertaining story, with moments that had me laughing out loud at the characters antics. Although not one of my favourites of Victoria’s, it was a fun read. Would I read more by this author? Without a doubt.
