I could not get into this book, however, I did finish it. Camille and Beryl are twins - Camille is now a rich widow and decides she wants a prince as her next husband. She's preparing a house party to help seal the deal with a handsome prince. Apparently she's known for her strange "starts" and this house party will be another in a string of her somewhat typical escapades. Instead of having her family at the house party, she will have a pretend family - yes, a group of actors have been hired to portray her mother, sister, uncle, whomever.

Into this mix a former true love, Grayson Elliott, unexpectedly drops in after 11 long years apart. Their history: After a lifelong friendship, he belatedly realized he was in love with her, but waited to declare his love until two days before her marriage was to take place. She turned him down, instead of fighting for her, he departed to America, where he focused on making a lot of money and finally he's returned just in time to attend the house party, albeit uninvited.

Once Grayson realizes what Camille has planned, he decides he will join the house party even though Camille repeatedly asks him to leave. He refuses to leave, however, and this so unsettles Camille at every turn, she's twisting and turning - away from the prince, straight into the arms of her former love.

Okay, I must confess to liking Grayson a lot, but Camille and Beryl? No, not especially. In fact, Beryl seemed a cold fish and Camille just didn't have any endearing qualities that drew me in, which left me without an anchor to hold onto for my interest in the romance. If I were to rate this book purely on romance, I would have to give it one star. However, the storyline was unique and Grayson and his cousin - Win... Well, they had "it" if you know what I mean.

Camille has found herself a new husband. A prince. The only problem is her family is less than conventional. What's a woman to do? Why hire actors to portray her family and servants. The prince, after all, expects to see a classic English Christmas. Camille never expects her first love to show up out of the blue. It's been eleven years. Here he is though. Standing in her home and wondering who all these strange people are. Grayson reluctantly agrees to help Camille with her scheme while silently planning to stop this engagement.

Funny and sweet, this book will make you laugh and tug at your heart. Ms Alexander adds just the right amount of romance, love and giggles to this book. You'll enjoy the escapades of Camille and her ragtag cast. An easy read, you'll finish this one before you know it. It's amazing.

I found no issues with this one.

I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because I have some friends I can see doing this..lol. ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~

This was a thoroughly enjoyable read; filled with warmth, humour and quite accurately painted family relationships. I liked that the heroine was in her thirties rather than a debutante or ingenue, and also that she had been content in her first marriage to a man who was kind and decent.

The theme running throughout the novel is one of second chances - not just for Grayson and Camille, but also for Beryl and her husband, for their parents and the sisters' relationship with each other and their errant father.

Camille and Grayson are very likeable characters, and the farcical element of the story is handled deftly and with a sure hand.

A smile-inducing holiday read for any time of the year.

Format: Hardcover
Young Camille had wed a man who was substantially older than her, and they had spent eight comfortable years together. Now Camille is a very wealthy widow and is looking to remarry. This year for Christmas, Camille wants a wedding proposal from Prince Nikolai Pruzinsky, of the ruling family of the Kingdom of Greater Avalonia. She does not love the man, but fully expects to fall in love with him after they are married. Since Nikolai has been reading novels by Mr. Charles Dickens, he mentions wanting to experience a traditional English Christmas. Camille decides to grant his wish. Of course, her family has never been what one might call proper, but by a very good stroke of luck everyone is out of the country for Christmas this year. Camille hires a troupe of actors to play the parts of her family, as well as all the other servants. What could possibly go wrong with such a brilliant plan?

Young Grayson Elliott did not confess his feelings of love to Camille until the day before she was to marry. From the kiss they shared that day, Gray could tell that she returned his feelings. Yet he had been too late. He spent the next eleven years on business travels and amassing his fortune. But this year Gray is spending Christmas with his family. Gray tells himself that he is over his feelings for Camille and that seeing her around the area would not be difficult. He should have known better.

Camille has always had some sort of impulsive adventure going on; however, this time her scheme borders on outrageous! Be that as it may, Gray never ignores an opportunity when it presents itself. So when Camille introduces him to Nikolai, Gray insinuates himself into her household by announcing that he has come to spend Christmas with Cousin Camille. Let the games begin!

**** FOUR STARS!
