So this is the original book that Amanda Dobbins recommended last month on JAM session. I’m glad I read the others first, though it’s easy to jump into this without knowledge of the others.
Our main heroine is Vivian, who is the mother of Maddie, the heroine from the last book. Maddie is a stylist and gets a job styling “The Duchess” at Sandringham for the Christmas holidays. Names are never used, but it’s heavily implied this is Megan Markle (and Prince Harry). But they are just the catalyst.
Vivian meets Malcolm, Private Secretary to Her Majesty and has a bunch of UK at Christmas adventures for a week. I miss the UK like crazy on a normal day and given *everything*, it was nice to think about going horseback riding in the Queen’s paddock or wandering in the V&A after hours because your man is Very Important in the government. I wasn’t quite as invested in this romance as the previous ones, but it was still fun to spend Christmas in England with a dashing British gentleman.
