Princess Cordelia is used to being overshadowed by her many brothers and sisters. So when she's offered the chance to attend her brother's wedding in a faraway kingdom, she leaps at it. In Northhelm, she'll finally have the chance to stand out. And maybe, just maybe, she'll even find romance.

But not everything in the Northhelmian court is as it appears. With her brother distracted by the wedding, only Ferdinand, the ugliest man at court, will listen to Cordelia's concerns. An observant princess and a strangely amphibious soldier may be the only thing standing between all Four Kingdoms and disaster.

Cordelia will have to overcome prejudice, deceit and danger if she wants to save the day and find romance at A Midwinter's Wedding.

Melanie Cellier just announced that A Midwinter’s Wedding will be on sale through the end of November, 2017.  I adore her books and don’t think I have ever given one less than 5 stars.

The review I posted on Goodreads for this books was short:

I have a complaint about this author’s books. They don’t come out often enough.

I am not very generous with 5 star reviews, but think I have given every one of the 4 Kingdom books 5 stars. They are fascinating re-writes of familiar (and not so familiar) fairy tales, but done so in such an intriguing way. This retelling of the Frog Prince was so very touching as Cordelia and Ferdie learned their value and discovered a nefarious plot against the royals of the 4 Kingdoms.

About Melanie Cellier

Melanie Cellier grew up on a staple diet of books, books and more books. And although she got older, she never stopped loving children’s and young adult novels.

She always wanted to write one herself, but it took three careers and three different continents before she actually managed it.

She now feels incredibly fortunate to spend her time writing from her home in Adelaide, Australia where she keeps an eye out for koalas in her backyard. Her staple diet hasn’t changed much, although she’s added choc mint Rooibos tea and Chicken Crimpies to the list.

Her young adult Four Kingdoms and Beyond the Four Kingdoms series are made up of linked stand-alone stories that retell classic fairy tales.
