Now a GAC Family Original Movie
Accidentally abandoned and stranded by a raging blizzard in the picturesque town of Tucker, Maine, Crown Princess Jasmine Arcules finds herself alone and unguarded for the first time in her life.
Meanwhile, widower Sam Cutler is dreading the Christmas season. Struggling to be a good father to his nine-year-old twin daughters, he's wracked with guilt and battling painful memories. The last thing he needs is a beautiful stranger invading his world.
Jasmine keeps her royal identity secret, so Sam treats her the way no man in her native country ever would – a country where speaking to Jasmine out of turn could result in jail time. But Jasmine has a knack for getting past Sam's defenses, comforting his daughters, arousing his suppressed emotions, and forcing him to remember he's a man...
Both Sam and Jasmine need each other, but can they trust in Christmas magic to bring their hearts together?
His Jingle Bell Princess
I loved this story. A princess stranded by a blizzard hides her true identity and gets to be "normal" with a family in the weeks leading up to Christmas. The family is healing from a loss, and this stranger sure mixes things up for them.
I loved Sam and Jasmine so much. Belle was great, and the twins were just adorable. I could almost picture them running around in the snow and playing.
This was a very sweet and heartwarming story, and that little town really showed the best in people.
What a fun, wonderful read! A princess stranded in the middle of a small town during a snowstorm no less. Jasmine will have an impact on one small family that will change their lives forever. Sam and his twin daughters are making it through each day but Sam is such a great character and you can feel that he wants to start living again but can't quite make himself do it. This one is wonderfully done and a perfect read to get you into the spirit of the holidays.
I highly recommend this one.
I would say 3 1/2 stars.
The fairy tale part of this story captivated me and how the dynamics of the people's past helped each other to grow, with some realism, but I was disappointed in the ending. I really wanted it to go the other way.
