November’s Selection

Royal Holiday by Jasmine Guillory

Guys, I have truthfully been WAITING to break out the holiday books ever since we started this book club, and it’s officially time. Get ready because we have tons of holiday book club content coming your way, but today we are kicking off the Christmas season with Royal Holiday as our November book club pick! You are going to absolutely L.O.V.E. this book. It’s fizzy, fun, festive… but most of all, romantic. I can’t wait for you to pick up your copy and read along. Happy November, friends!

Quick Summary:

Vivian Forest hasn’t traveled much in her 50+ years so she jumps at the chance to accompany her daughter Maddie to London for the holidays. Maddie is styling the royal family’s new duchess and Vivian gets to roam about the estate and take in the sights. Malcolm Hudson is the Queen’s private secretary and he immediately takes a shine to Vivian. It doesn’t take long for a kiss under the mistletoe to lead to a holiday romance. But what happens when the New Year comes and San Francisco based Vivian and London based Malcolm have to go back to their regular lives?
