In a small town in northern Minnesota, Ellie Mittelstadt goes to a psychic where she receives this prediction: if she finds a man named Chris Evans, true love will follow...
Only one problem: Even in the tiny town of Haralson, Minnesota, there are six Chris Evanses!
In Finding Chris Evans: The Royal Edition, LeeAnn Werth has done everything she must to keep the Werth Inn running strong, including putting aside her dreams of flying away from her tiny north woods town.
But at least this summer, the world has come to her. A mysterious foreign businessman has checked in for some serious R&R, and while LeeAnn knows Cris Evans can’t be the man’s real name, she’s fiercely dedicated to her guests’ privacy. Especially the incredibly gorgeous ones.
For international soccer bad boy Cristopoulis Matretti, Haralson, Minnesota is the perfect hideout. No one here knows he’s embarrassed his native Garronia by punching out his coach… and no one suspects his aunt is a queen. But when a local girl’s unexpected visit sends his bodyguards into an uproar, Cris realizes he must flee again—just when he’s finally getting to know the inn’s dreamy-eyed, hard-working owner. Still, maybe he doesn’t have to leave immediately…
LeeAnn’s not prepared for Cris’s sudden attention, and her defenses go up even as her heart begins to dance. Consorting with guests who make her long for adventure is something a responsible innkeeper simply does not do.
…If only Cristopoulis had ever learned to play by the rules.
Now's your chance to fall in love with Chris Evans, too--six different times! The Finding Chris Evans series features NYT and USA Bestselling authors Erin Nicholas, Jennifer Bernard and Erin McCarthy, and award-winning authors Lizzie Shane, Elizabeth Bemis and Jennifer Chance.

Getting her chance to fly...
In this episode, "Cris Evans" is staying at a remote Inn in Minnesota that is run by LeeAnn Werth. LeeAnn suspects Cris is traveling under an assumed name, but values her customer's privacy. She has a "lapse" where she tells her friend Ellie about Cris. Ellie proceeds to tell LeeAnn about the fortune teller's prediction, so she lets Ellie know when Cris is around. All does not go as planned since his bodyguards "tackle" Ellie when she tries to meet Cris. They haul her off and won't let her close to Cris, so she speeds away leaving LeeAnn to deal with the mess. Cris, trying to make amends for his bodyguards, offers their services around the Inn. LeeAnn tries to refuse, but Cris won't hear of it.
As Cris and LeeAnn work together to clean up the barn and boathouse, they begin to have feelings for each other. LeeAnn believes nothing can come of it because she has responsibilities and doesn't want to let her father and grandfather down. She's put her savings and dreams on hold for five years trying to make the Inn profitable, but feels overwhelmed. The lease is up for renewal, but she doesn't think she has it in her to give up another five years. Cris, with his own insecurities, can't bring himself to tell LeeAnn who he really is. So he leaves her computer open to the link to see who he really is. She already feels badly that she was "with" a guest, but finding out he is famous.....Can Cris convince LeeAnn to follow her dreams and see what may become of them.......
I loved this novella! It's a fairytale come true. Swoon-worthy!!!! Highly recommended! I read a gifted copy and all opinions expressed are my own.
Super cute story
Loved this!! It's the fourth Chris Evans (well in this case it's Cris) we get to meet in this series of novellas. Will this be the forever love Ellie Mittelstadt is looking for??
LeeAnn Werth is an innkeeper in northern Minnesota. She takes her guests privacy seriously but not quite as serious as the two guys who jump to Cris Evan's defense when a woman shows up wanting to meet Cris. Cris is suppose to be an international businessman taking a break but LeeAnn's not buying it but who is she to question him? Cristopoulis Matretti is an international soccer player who was recently caught up in a huge scandal. He's laying low in Minnesota until the outrage blows over. When your aunt is the Queen of your country, actions like his hit every newspaper. He finds that he really likes it in Minnesota. At least he really likes the cute innkeeper. When the unexpected visitor shows up Cris is certain it's time for him to leave but he doesn't want to. He really wants to get to know LeeAnn. Can he get around all her defenses and really get to know her? Will she be upset when she finds out who he really is???
This is a super cute story and one everyone should read. I highly recommend it.
