"warm, upbeat, and passionate story"

Marcie worried about her mother Liz Riley driving across the country alone. Liz who spent two glorious weeks with Marcie, her son-in-law, and her new grandson knows it is time to let the trio bond into a family unit. In spite of wanting to hold the new baby, Liz leaves on her cross- country drive. After a few days of nothing but the road, Liz stops at the Victorian town of Coldwater Springs, Colorado. However, while driving in the Rockies, her car skids off the road during a torrential storm. Seeking help, she locates a nearby cottage. When she enters, Liz is stunned because the remote place seems more like a shrine than a home. Robert had kept the cottage just the way his beloved deceased wife Elise wanted it as her dying wish. However, Robert and Liz begin to fall in love from the start, perhaps with some otherworldly help from someone who only wanted her spouse to find new happiness inside their cottage.

ENCHANTED COTTAGE is an enchanting adult love story that will magically seduce the audience into reading this tale in one sitting. Marcie and Robert never expected love to find them again, but as in a fairy tale, they do with each other. The story line works because the two lead characters seem genuine even as their emotions take charge of much of their actions. Readers will feel blessed after perusing Linda Bleser's warm, upbeat, and passionate story.

When her car breaks down on a deserted mountain road, Liz Riley discovers an enchanted cottage where time stands still. She wakes up to find her youth restored, and her passions ignited by the owner of the cottage--a man she thinks is young enough to be her son. Only when she comes to terms with the fact that age doesn't matter is the true magic of the enchanted cottage revealed.

ENCHANTED COTTAGE is a story for women who may feel their youth slipping away, but not their zest for life, their taste for adventure, or their ability to recognize and appreciate the power of love--at whatever stage it enters their life.
