One Enchanted Evening Review Tour

Restlessness plagued Charlotte Becker. Unable to settle down, she moved from place to place searching for an elusive something to calm her turbulent spirit. A sudden invitation from her sister sends her across country to Lobster Cove, Maine. Anchors abound by the sea, but surely nothing would keep her rooted in place in a pokey resort town during the off-season.

Drawn into a consignment shop named One Enchanted Evening, Charlotte is confronted by a mysterious article of clothing requesting her help to stop a man in a wolf mask from killing women. Charlotte agrees to protect the citizens of Lobster Cove and find the hunter before an innocent is slain.

Luke Maddox’s hunting days are over. Wounded in action, he left the Marines to return to Lobster Cove, the only place to bring him peace as a child. Hiding his disability, he accepts life will be nothing more than dull routine. Then he meets a singular young woman wearing an unusual cloak. She tells an incredible story of a wolf that walks on two legs.

And the hunt begins…

In One Enchanted Evening fantasy, humor, and romance are wrapped up in the cheeky retelling of a fairy tale. You will never look at a clothing from a consignment shop the same way again.

Charlotte stood back by a large bay window to wait her turn. Peering idly around, she caught her reflection in the plate glass and raised an eyebrow. Wow, the boot/blazer/jeans combination really worked. Everyone nearby was focused on the sample table, so she checked out her butt. Damn, the boots rocked it.

“Would you like to try a sample?”

Charlotte turned around and locked eyes with the handsome server. Flush rose to her cheeks at the thought he had witnessed the subtle butt-check maneuver, but his expression gave no reaction as he held out a piece of buttered bread. “It’s our own blend. All you do is add it to softened butter or cream cheese. On sale today.”

She took a bite. The spread had a spicy tang with a pleasant kick. “It’s delicious. I’ll take a packet.”

The man didn’t say a word other than thank you. An elderly woman at the cash register bagged her order. At the door, Charlotte looked back. The man caught her glance, flashed a cheeky grin, and gave two very enthusiastic thumbs up of approval.

Red-faced, Charlotte scurried out the door and headed for the waterfront.
