Library Journal Review

Linked by a quaint New England town, a resident fortune teller with a brilliant track record, and a bed-and-breakfast cottage with a magical reputation, this diverse trio of stories bring three couples to love with a charming, slightly sexy Halloween flair. A pushy party planner and costume shop proprietor clashes with a hunky moving company owner as they rush to get Rose Cottage ready for the annual Halloween party in Angell's upbeat, humorous "Charmed by You"; an adventurous librarian bullies her best friend since childhood, an overworked ER doctor, into taking a Halloween break, and they discover they are more than just friends in Jennifer Dawson's lighthearted "Mesmerized by You"; and a big-city lawyer reconnects with her teenage love in Sharla Lovelace's compelling "Enchanted by You." VERDICT Sassy, funny, and dusted with magic, these enchanting tales with a cozy small-town vibe are a joyful kick-off to the increasingly popular-and expanding-Halloween season. Angell lives in Naples, FL; Dawson in the Chicago area; and Lovelace in Port Neches, TX. © Copyright 2016. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Publishers Weekly Review

In the Halloween-loving town of Moonbright, Maine, there's a small bed-and-breakfast where loves, old and new, are found. This seasonally themed anthology features three contemporary tales of romance that take place at the Rose Cottage B and B. Angell's (No Breaking My Heart) "Charmed by You" finds party planner Grace, the goddaughter of Rose Cottage owner Amelia Rose, discovering joy in the arms of Cade, a man she's seen around the small town for years, yet whom she has never really taken the time to know, until they work together for Rose Cottage's Halloween party. In "Mesmerized by You," Dawson (Debauched) strands librarian Chloe in the B and B with her best friend, Jack, an ER doctor, allowing the pair to explore what happens when friendship unexpectedly turns into something more. Finally, Lovelace (The Sweetest Chase) absolutely charms with her examination of love rediscovered in "Enchanted by You." Sidney and Sawyer, both far away from their South Carolina roots, find each other unexpectedly after 12 years apart. This wonderful, well-written collection calls to mind brisk autumn nights cuddled with a loved one. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
