There are subtle references to other characters, and…moreI've only read one of the books in the series, prior to this one, and I would say no.
There are subtle references to other characters, and relationships, from the other books, but nothing crucial to understanding the couple within this particular story. (less)
This story had a bit of a unique twist on it in that it is the story of a mother and daughter taking a trip and finding romance.
At first thought we would probably be thinking the romance was about the younger woman. However, the author focused on a middle-aged mom in this sweet story.
Whisked away for a royal treat, the main characters spend the Christmas holidays time in England with the Duke and Duchess.
The author gave us a lighthearted and delightful read that make ...more
Royal Holiday is a light romance that spans two continents. Based on mature characters, it is a refreshing change.

“But what if it was all worth it?”
A cute little contemporary with a historical romance feel due to the passing back and forth of hand written love notes and visiting Royal castles. Reading this book took me on a little trip down memory lane to my vacation in London a few years ago and I will definitely have to go back soon. I miss all the foods mentioned in this one and Jasmine Guillory books will make you hungry. It’s her brand. They are also charming and lighthearted reads that I thin ...more
This book was charming and wonderful!
Royal Holiday is a contemporary romance in the Wedding Date series (it is book 4). It features Vivian, Maddie's mom. Maddie is the only crossover character in this book.
The story takes place in England over the Christmas holidays and has a royal connection. This book will be a wonderful holiday read.
The narrators are Vivian and Malcolm (3rd person POVs). Maddie gets a job in the UK working for the royal family. And she asks her mom to tag along. T ...more
This story features Vivian Forest, mother to Maddie, who's story was featured in The Wedding Party (to note, I've only read book one in this series, the Wedding Date, and I wasn't too lost skipping around - I only got a spoiler as to what couple ended up together). When Maddie is given the job of a lifetime, styling the Duchess of England for the Christmas holidays, she talks her mom into joining her.
Vivian had no ...more

Malcolm and Vivian were delightful, forthright, and had a lot of chemistry! They were grownups with jobs, past relationships, children/nephews, and I loved reading about their path to romance. They talked about problems, there were no idiotic contrivances... it was a charming delight start to finish.
The last installment of The Wedding Date “series”, The Wedding Party was enjoyable but didn’t knock my socks off. However, this upcoming release was delightful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It was a nice change of pace to read a story about a middle aged couple. I am here for “young love”, but this was a pleasant departure. I enjoyed watching their characters address the issues that come with taking a risk on love after being single for so long.
The whole story line just ...more

This book is from the emerging Romance subgenre called Seasoned Romance. The main characters of Royal Holiday are in their early to mid-fifties. It was delightful to watch their attraction grow through the handwritten notes and later the postcards they sent to each other. Seasoned Romances show that there ...more
I'd cast Vivian, Maddie's mom from The Wedding Party, with Phylicia Rashad or Octavia Spencer.
Malcolm is totally Idris Elba :D
If you love her books, or are new to them - this is idea read (it's a little less racy, without sacrificing any of the giddy, connective storytelling).
Galley borrowed from the publisher.
Jasmine Guillory is the queen of modern romance, and "Royal Holiday" proves it! (Seriously, where is her tiara?)
Vivian Forest is a hardworking social worker, who devotes so much time, effort, and energy into helping other people solve their problems. But she's never really taken the time to care for herself. So when her daughter, Maddie, invites her to go spend Christmas in England, she hesitates but agrees. The abso ...more
Christmas has always been predictable in the Forrest household. Until this year when Vivian is swept away from her day-to-day life as a social worker by her daughter Maddie. Maddie is a stylist and can't pass up the opportunity to style the Duchess for the holidays. With short notice, both Maddie and Vivian are off to celebrate the holi ...more
However, as Vivian's royal holiday comes to a close, both she and Malcolm are set to return to their normal lives...or are they?
Vivian is introduced a ...more
