"Some Enchanted Autumn is, to put it simply... enchanting!"
Avalon "Lonnie" Lynch wants nothing more than to leave her
heritage behind. She doesn't want to be a witch, but
sometimes fate will have its way no matter what. When she
comes home to Pumpkin to celebrate Halloween, a prankster
is on the loose. Someone wants to ruin the holiday and it
can only be a person from their rival town of Holly.
Nicholas "The Dugan" Dugan is sent from his home town of
Holly over to Pumpkin to investigate all the mysterious
incidents occurring. When a skeleton literally falls on
top of him, things really get interesting. Of course, it
has absolutely nothing to do with the gorgeous Lonnie to
whom he is bound by a magic spell until the mystery is
resolved. Or does it? Will their families' histories,
which caused the rivalry between the towns, get in the way
of their true love found?
Some Enchanted Autumn by Linda Andrews is an all around
cute, funny, feel-good kind of story. The characters are
quirky and the storyline engaging. This reviewer
especially loved the terminology used as expletives in the
story. Who can resist someone whose favorite expression
when they are frustrated is "Cracked Cauldrons!" or "Sugar
Cookies?" Readers will chuckle several times over the
antics of the townspeople.
Lonnie and Nick are perfect for each other, as much as
they dislike each other in the beginning. How they
overcome their doubts about one another is sure to delight
readers. The supporting cast is bubbling with fun. The
fear of Pumpkin's residents of "The Dugan," their version
of the boogeyman is amusing, as is the grudging respect
they give him in the end. However, two characters in
particular, who happen to be skeletons, will steal the
show every time they make an appearance. One comes to look
forward to their scenes, just waiting to see what kind of
mischief they'll get in to next.
Some Enchanted Autumn is, to put it simply... enchanting!
This reviewer now intends to get a copy of The Christmas
Village, so as to spend more time in this delightful world.
