Royal Brides by Traci Hunter Abramson {Blog Tour Review and Giveaway}

Royal Brides by Traci Hunter Abramson

Kindle Edition, 304 pages
Published April 1st 2016 by Covenant Communications

In this eagerly anticipated companion novel to Royal Target and Royal Secrets, readers are invited back to the shimmering Mediterranean paradise of Meridia, where two royal weddings in a year are more than stressful—they’re deadly . . .
Lovely Meridian native Noelle Saldera yearns for adventure, but as the daughter of palace servants, working at Prince Stefano’s royal wedding may be as exciting as her life will get. But her options change drastically when she finds herself in the unlikely position of diffusing a bomb at the ceremony and being enlisted as the newest member of Meridian Intelligence. And with another wedding in the works, there can be no more close calls when Prince Stefano’s brother, Garrett, walks down the aisle.
The bombing attempt at the first royal wedding leaves few clues as to the assailant’s identity. Desperate for answers, Meridian officials enlist CIA agent Jeremy Rogers to prevent a repeat occurrence at the upcoming nuptials. The beauty of the plan: the bride is Jeremy’s sister, so his cover is foolproof. What no one could anticipate is the instant connection between Jeremy and Noelle. Now, with their hearts on the line, the pair must work together to stop a seemingly unstoppable enemy before time runs out.


My Review: 4 Stars

There are several different character stories that are followed in Royal Brides. Janessa, whom we met in Book 1, is finally ready to marry her prince, but a security scare at her brother-in-law's wedding puts everyone on edge and security is tighter than ever. Her brother, Jeremy, is called in to help, and love might be in the cards for him, too. Noelle is an employee of the castle and has a unique position between both worlds, but there's a lot at stake.

I have an obsession with royalty and would love to be a princess myself...I think. There are definitely aspects that would be hard to deal with, especially for someone who is a commoner, such as Janessa. I love how down-to-earth this royal family is. I loved the connections between the different characters, but the relationships lacked a little emotion--I wanted more. 

I've followed this series from the beginning and have enjoyed it so much. This author does a great job in creating a suspense with villains who are very hard to discover. I love guessing throughout the book and being fed bits of clues along the way. The pacing is a little slower in this story, but the way things all come together is very fulfilling. 

Content: some violence (nothing too graphic); moments of peril; mild romance (kissing); references to religion, specific to the LDS church (not preachy). Clean!
