Camille, the widowed Lady Lydingham, has set her sights on marry
Camille, the widowed Lady Lydingham, has set her sights on marrying the handsome and charming foreign Prince Nikolai and obtaining her fairy tale happy ever after.
She sets to win the prince's heart and a marriage proposal by giving him the perfect Dickens Christmas. Camille feels the only way to ensure the proper Dicken's family is to hire a troupe of actors to play her eccentric family and sets about to pull off the perfect scheme.
After a long absense Grayson Elliot returns to England and his family's country estate. On a goodwill errand for his cousin, Grayson stumbles upon Camille's crazy charade. Having declared his love to Camille eleven years earlier on the eve of her marriage to another man, Grayson vows not to lose Camille a second time. After situating himself within Camille's Christmas production, Grayson offers her his help, while working to regain her trust and ultimatley winning her heart.
I truly enjoyed this book and many times found myself smiling while reading it. I found the cast of characters to be fun and engaging as well as the the perfect compliment to Camille and Grayson sweet romance. Some of the things I enjoyed most were the light hearted, sentimental and often fun interaction between characters. I just adored the Christmas Carrolls. I found myself caught up in the books twists and turns and it left me laughing. What Happens at

Camille, Lady Lydingham and Beryl, Lady Dunwell are twins who are not known for being boring. In fact, their whole family is a bit barmy. So when Camille is hoping a Prince of some foreign country (Camille can’t remember which) will propose to her she decides to hire a troupe of actors to play her family and give him a proper English Christmas at her family home Millworth Manor. Except for her twin, the rest of the family are in Europe and out of the way. What can go wrong?
Yeah, what exactly can go wrong with this scenario? You got it. Just about everything. This was a delightfully fun holiday historical romance with plenty of unexpected turns and shenanigans. I’ve read a few other books by Victoria Alexander and enjoyed them so I was pretty sure I would have a fun time reading this one. I was right. The characters are excellent, the writing wonderful and the plot is one I’ve not seen before. Who hires actors to play their family in order to impress a Prince? I just knew it wouldn’t go smoothly. Lol If you’re looking for an entertaining historical holiday romance then be sure to pick this one up. I’m sure it won’t disappoint.

I very much enjoyed this Christmas tail. This was my first book by Victoria Alexander and it won't be my last. It was a fun and funny book with a cast of characters real and actors that will have you in stitches. Camille and Elliot have good chemistry and it was interesting to watch Camille at first try to get her prince and then to avoid him and Elliot trying to get Camille to forgive him for his past failings. A must read.

This story was very entertaining to read. Camille is putting on
This story was very entertaining to read. Camille is putting on the show of a life time to impress a gentleman who she believes will make a great marriage. Everything is going to plan until Grayson Elliott shows back up into her life. He proposed to her once but she believed it to be out of honor and not love. This story has a lot of twists and turns but it was very fun to read. Camille and Grayson circle around each other not wanting to get close but they can’t seem to walk away from each other. Camille falls in love again with Grayson during the Christmas charade and they finally can be together after years of being separated. Camille learns that family isn’t something you should be embarrassed about but to embrace them, faults and all.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
