I have posted a number of books by this author; she is a delightful author and I have loved every book that I've read by her: here are some reviews: Reviews for Antoinette Stockenberg's A CHARMED PLACE " One of the season's most refreshing stories. Not too many authors come up with something so exciting and new, but Antoinette Stockenberg has. This wonderful plot gives the reader a love story about two people who had lost each other for 20 years ... and embroiders the tale with a mystery. What fun to read! Totally different ... colorful and extremely visual descriptions make this book come to life.
