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


EnchantingNicholette 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?

      My gaze lingered at the carriage door again, and I bit my lip. Perhaps it was too silly of a thing to ask. What would she think of me? But then she had assumed I would likely be remarried before she married at all. So of course she would want to help me…right? And it wasn’t as if I were asking her to help me secure a husband; I just wanted to feel more comfortable.
      More prepared.
      “What is it?” Sylvie asked, her eyes wide in anticipation.
      What on earth did she think I was going to ask? Nothing too shocking, I hoped. She hardly knew me, after all. She wouldn’t have known that I was the least shocking person in all of Back Bay.
      “About my getting married again someday….” I looked up to see her reaction to my words. She was smiling, almost giddily. “You see, I might need some help with that.”
      “You want me to help? Whom do you want to marry? I can’t wait to meet him!”
      “Um, no, I don’t—I don’t know him.” I almost wanted to forget about my request…but then I thought about living with my parents for years and years and not ever again having the kind of connection that had begun between William and me. And who better was there to ask than Sylvie, whom I’d seen flirt quite effortlessly a number of times since I’d met her?
