Can you imagine meeting the man of your dreams in a bookstore? Dreamy, right? Dawn Crandall really knew how to hook readers like me with her opening scene. As Nicholette was falling into the arms of Cal Hawthorn, I tumbled right back into Crandall’s world of Boston high society and intrigue.
Having read The Everstone Chronicles in their entirety, I came into this story as one might enter a room full of old friends. I knew the histories of all of the Everstones, was pleased to make the acquaintance of Miss Sylvie Boutilier (Bram’s stepdaughter), as well as Mabel and Cal Hawthorne. Each brought something unique and harmonious to the ongoing saga. Do not hesitate to purchase this story if you are only now discovering the series. Crandall amply supplies all the reader needs to understand the social dynamics and emotional intricacies of Nicholette and Cal’s courtship.
There was something very tender about a widow and widower finding comfort in one another’s company—a sweetness in their shared grief. Nicholette’s reluctance to risk her heart contrasted well with Cal’s ardent assurance that they were right for one another. When coupled with a simple mystery it created a delightful tension which spanned the entire novella. Enchanting Nicholette is a light and entertaining afternoon read for anyone who enjoys a clean and wholesome romance.
