The air was filled with the sound of children’s voices and peals of laughter. On the staircase leading to the foyer, five little boys of varying ages slid down the banisters with squeals of delight. A maid at the top of the stairs tried, with no success, to grab the children. A footman at the bottom stared as if he wasn’t sure if he should stop them, catch them or join them. Fortesque appeared seemingly from nowhere.

What Happens at Christmas was my very first Victoria Alexander book. I enjoyed it so much that I immediately bought the other four books in the series!

Just by the premise of the book alone I knew I would love it. Lady Camille Lydingham is a wealthy young widow with her eye on Prince Nikolai Prunzinsky of Greater Avalonia. Mostly because he is hot and is a Prince. Deciding to capitalize on the information that the Prince has always wanted to experience a traditional English Christmas, Lady Camille decides to invite him to her family manor for Christmas. However, Lady Camille has a problem: her family is seriously embarrassing. So what is a resourceful rich woman to do? Hire a troop of actors to their place!

Grayson Elliot has just returned to England after building a fortune in America. Years ago, he and Camille were best friends. But when he decided to tell her that he loved her the day because her wedding the friendship (obviously) fell apart. When he discovers Lady Camille’s charade, however, he sees his perfect opportunity to worm his way back into her life — by pretending to be her cousin!

I think I smiled or laughed my way through this entire book. That is not to say that the book was perfect: both Lady Camille and Grayson weren’t the easiest characters to fall in love with. Lady Camille was selfish and shallow, and Grayson definitely acted like an idiot at times. Yet the chemistry between the two characters was sizzling and their personalities matched seamlessly.

However, what made this book so special were the supporting characters: especially the acting trope! I don’t want to spoil the jokes, but just trust me that whenever the acting trope is involved in a scene you will laugh.

Rating: 4/5

This was a very amusing Christmas story.

Camille, Lady Lydingham, wanted the fairy tale life so when she met a prince who was travelling. Camille put a plan into motion designed to charm Prince Nikolai Pruzinksy of Greater Avalonia into proposing to her and making her a princess. The problem was that she didn't feel that her family was the "right sort" to endear the prince to her, as they were quite eccentric. So Camille decided to hire a troupe of actors to portray a proper and respectable English family. While Camille and her married twin sister Beryl, Lady Dunwell, put their scheme into motion, Camille's first love Grayson Elliot came by.

Grayson had decided that Camille was the one that got a way and he came to woo her back. Unfortunately he walks into this grand spectacle of a Christmas holiday with Camille's faux family. Both Prince Nikolas and Grayson wanted to prove they were the right suitor. Her twin sister just wants her to be happy. The rest is just comedic genius.

I wasn't expecting to enjoy this story so much but it was funny. Camille was very likable even though she was a bit of a dreamer. I give her a A for the trying in earnest to pull of a ruse of this magnitude. It required nerves of steel and sheer willpower to remain committed when parts of her story were falling part. Camille and her sister improvised so well, I almost expected them to decide to go into the theater afterwards.

I liked the drama because it felt like watching a live play with the blunders, bloopers and improvisation. The romance was also sweet and heart felt. I was pleased with how the love story was resolved. The audiobook narrator did an awesome job with various voices. I was never bored in this story. If you want an entertaining Christmas story and a second chance romance, I highly recommend this one.

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 that she will have a prince for her second 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.
