Rating: 4.5 Stars

Teresa Adler is the ultimate Ice Princess, with a heart as frozen as the winter landscape of her beloved home, Westerwald. All her life, she’s belonged to the ‘inner circle’ of wealth, privilege and position.

Christian Taylor: Heartthrob. Movie Star. Bad boy. The mischievous actor sets temperatures soaring in the picturesque baroque principality – and with a wicked glint in his eye and a chip on his shoulder he sets his sights on the one thing he’s told he can’t have. Teresa.

While Tessa holds the ultimate clue to the secret of Christian’s parentage, it is the heat of his touch that will make this Ice Princess feel more alive than she ever has before…

Another magical, gorgeously romantic modern fairy tale from Romy Sommer!

Teresa (Tessa) Adler is used to doing what is expected of her. She is engaged to Stefan, an amassador for Westerwald, but we barely see anything of him until towards the end of the book, as he's abroad working, in the run up to their wedding.

Tessa is asked by her dad, to take on the assistant job to movie star and heart throb Christian Taylor. It is believed that Christian has the missing ring from the palace and Westerwald, and it is down to Tessa to find out why he has it. 

Christian is your typical bad boy movie star. He normally moves from woman to woman, until he meets his new assistant Tessa and can't get her out of his mind.

To Catch A Star is the third book in the Westerwald trilogy, and reintroduces you to characters from the previous, and since I have read Romy Sommers books out of order, I was also pleased to see the introduction of Dominic. Dominic features heavily in Not A Fairy Tale, and I enjoyed finally reading the heavily hinted at back story in full, of both Dominic and Christian. This book can be read as a standalone too.

To Catch A Star is a romantic story, and you see Tessa's ice-princess facade fade, and Christian starts to be himself and not the public version of him. 

The question throughout the second half of the story for me was who was Tessa gong to end up with? Will her upbringing for doing what is right for Westerwald take over from what it is clear her heart is starting to feel?

I loved every second of To Catch A Star, and I felt it was a fitting finale to the Westerwald trilogy. I really hope though Romy comes back to these characters in future books.
