Charmed Place was a wonderful love story, the characters were so real to me. I had not read any of Antoinette's books before and I do not know how I missed her because I am an avid reader. Anyway Dan and Mattie hooked me on their story and hooked me onto a wonderful author. I have since read all of her books and loved them. I also like the stories of people who are not in their twenties and of course I always like a happy ending for people who go through some very difficult times in their lives. I could relate to Maggie because I also went through some very difficult times with a teen age daughter and also a marriage that ended. It was so neat for Dan to have loved her for all of these years and to try and renew and once again refall in love and of course we all like the happy ever after endings. It may not be like that in real life but to me these characters become so real and Antoinette has a way of doing that. I just finished Beyond Midnight and it was so good I could not lay it down. Way to go Antoinette and of course Dan and Mattie will be with us forever.
This is a love story about a woman that takes up residence in her family summer cottage with her daughter and hangs out with a couple friends that summer nearby. She finds a "man from her past" is living in the nearby lighthouse and they rekindle their romance, much to the chagrin of her family.
I enjoyed this. Not your typical romance... there were a few twists and turns. Well written, good characters.
A good summer read for the beach or the backyard.
Book was interesting enough, although it was kind of slow at times. But it did contain a very interesting twist and of course, it had a somewhat happy ending. The thing I liked best was the fact that it validated "mother's intuition". If you are a mom, don't let anybody tell you that you are imagining things when it comes to your children's safety. Go with your gut feeling!
