From the back cover:
In this captivating novella by Dawn Crandall, Nicholette Everstone is already a widow at the age of twenty-two: her husband was murdered on their wedding day. She has just returned to Boston after two years of mourning in Europe. Although her husband was loving, the marriage was an arranged one, and Nicholette would like to wed again–this time for love…and to someone safe.
As she acclimates to life in Back Bay again, Nicholette meets someone she can’t help but fall for. But when she learns of the danger and sacrifices Cal Hawthorne takes on for the safety of others, will her heart be strong enough to keep her fears of “what if” at bay?
About the author:
Dawn Crandall’s debut Gilded Age Victorian romance, “The Hesitant Heiress,” was a 2015 ACFW Carol award finalist in the debut category and received the 2015 Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence, the 2015 Write Touch Reader’s Choice Award and the 2015 Romancing the Novel Reader’s Choice Award. Her follow-up novel, “The Bound Heart,” received the 2016 Laurel Award from Clash of the Titles.
Dawn earned a BA in Christian Education from Taylor University. She’s been balancing books and babies lately as her two sons were both born as the first four books of her Everstone Chronicles series were being released from Whitaker House from 2014 to 2016. Dawn lives with her husband and two young sons on a hobby farm in her hometown in northeast Indiana.
A young widow doesn’t have to give up hope for her future, does she?
Nicholette Everstone was widowed on her wedding day, but meeting Cal Hawthorne has her rethinking her future. Cal is respectable and heroic, one of those protagonists who seems too good to be true. Enchanting Nicholette is a novella filled with emotion and stolen kisses.
As the fifth book in The Everstone Chronicles, the family has become quite familiar — unless, of course, you haven’t read the previous stories. In that case, you’ll likely spend a good amount of time trying to keep the characters and their relationships straight. However, if you’ve enjoyed the previous stories in this series, you’ll enjoy Enchanting Nicholette, too!
