Enchanting Nicholette by Dawn Crandell: Just Reads Tour

November 1, 2018


Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for Enchanting Nicholette by Dawn Crandall, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours.


Title: Enchanting Nicholette  
Series: The Everstone Chronicles #5  
Author: Dawn Crandall  
Publisher: Whitaker House  
Release Date: October 9, 2018  
Genre: Historical Romance

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?


No one I’d ever met had been able to turn my head enough to induce thoughts of going against my parents’ wish for me to marry into the Everstone family. It was what I’d always known would happen…and I’d been quite agreeable to it.
And now what was I supposed to do? The thought of finagling my way through a sea of highly interested prospective suitors made me feel ill. I honestly didn’t know what I would do if I met someone who interested me. I had absolutely no practice in flirting. Only following directions.
I took another quick glance at Sylvie.
She was sixteen—six years younger than me—and she seemed to have such a natural allure, but in a rather likable way. She was so approachable and candid, two terms that would never describe me in a hundred years.
The carriage slowed to a smooth stop, and I looked outside to see the large golden lettering backed by dark green over the multi-paned storefront windows of Brittle Brattle Books.
Sylvie scooted toward the door, which was opened by the groom.
“A few minutes, please, Lamont.” I reached for the handle, closing the door again. “Sylvie, I have a request to make of you, and I hope you won’t find it offensive—”
“Oh, I don’t think I would! You can ask me anything.”
