Blog Tour, Review & GIVEAWAY for Enchanting Nicholette by Dawn Crandall

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?


If you like historical, romantic, Christian fiction, this book is for you! This is the fifth book in the Everstone Chronicles series, but can easily be read as a standalone. However, if you like this book, you will definitely want to go back and read the first four! 

The opening scene is so swoony...and it takes place at a bookstore! I liked Nicholette. She is strong and has a good head on her shoulders. Her husband died on their wedding day and we meet her two years later after she is out of mourning and reentering society. 

Cal is a widower and had his eye on Nicholette before they both married other people. He adds some suspense to this romantic story which I enjoyed. 

I liked the theme in this book that God's timing is perfect and He can orchestrate anything. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
