Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

From USA TODAY bestselling author Antoinette Stockenberg comes an original and wonderfully romantic story of star-crossed lovers who have been apart for twenty years and who rediscover one another in an idyllic coastal village on Cape Cod.

A SECOND CHANCE AT LOVE. It's a deep, aching need for anyone whose heart has ever been broken. Maddie Regan and Dan Hawke were college lovers who were compelled to go separate ways after a horrific event for which Dan was blamed. She settled down and raised a family; he roamed the planet as a war correspondent. But a near death experience brings Dan in search of the only woman he has ever loved. His plan to win Maddie is simple: take up residence in a lighthouse just a stone's throw from her family's summer home, and then make her fall back in love with him. He knows her family will object and suspects that her daughter might; but he refuses to believe that Maddie herself -- the woman who has haunted his dreams for two decades -- can be any less in love with him than he is with her.

It's not that simple for Maddie. She has a jealous ex-husband to deal with ... a feisty, resentful teenager ... a widowed mother unable to emerge from mourning ... and the ongoing heartbreak of her father's unsolved murder. Is it possible to throw all of that aside for the chance to be happy?

REVIEWS

"A superb story."

"This wonderful plot gives the reader a love story about two people who had lost each other for 20 years ... and embroiders the tale with a mystery. What fun to read! Totally different, exciting, and new. Colorful and extremely visual descriptions make this book come to life; I could see the ocean and smell the salty sea air ... the story flows and is hard to put down ... it's a keeper, readers!"

"A CHARMED PLACE allows Stockenberg's considerable talents to truly shine ... almost perfect ... a well-rounded, believable, entertaining and moving romance [with] an intellectually challenging mystery... a real story about real people whom readers will care deeply about."
--Gothic Journal

"An absorbing, highly engaging read with dialogue [that is] clever and realistic. The Cape Cod setting is vividly evoked, and secondary characters add great color .... Ms. Stockenberg is a gifted prose stylist; she makes us care about the characters. The fairly explicit love scenes are not only passionate, but also tender. A truly charming contemporary romance with an uplifting theme that second chances at love are possible .... "
--Regency World

--"A CHARMED PLACE is a captivating mixture of mystery and romance with characters that seem so real they jump off the pages.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Mélange réussi de suspense et de romance 13 août 2013
Par Domi
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Des personnages attachants , un récit bien mené jusqu'au bout, une belle trame. Tout tourne autour de Maddie et Dan , qui s'aimaient passionément lorsqu'ils étaient étudiants et qui ont été contraints de se séparer suite à un tragique événement dont le père de Maddie a été victime et pour lequel Dan a été rendu responsable à l'époque . Maddie est la seule femme que Dan ait jamais aimé et il mettra tout en oeuvre pour la reconquérir et se réhabiliter auprès d'elle. Un amour de jeunesse peut il résister au temps , aux médisances, aux obstacles ?On veut y croire . Le cheminement est beau, on le suit volontiers. Et c'est d'autant plus passionnant que plusieurs mystères s'enchevêtrent dans la vie de Maddie ( autour de son père , récemment décédé et de son ex-mari ) , ce qui pimente de suspense cette belle histoire d'amour. L'histoire prend un tour que l'on n'aurait pas soupçonné. J'ai pris beaucoup de plaisir à lire ce livre.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I absolutely loved this book, and the author is the best 19 juin 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
A Charmed Place was a wonderful love story, the characters were so real to me. I had not read any of Antoinette's books before and I do not know how I missed her because I am an avid reader. Anyway Dan and Mattie hooked me on their story and hooked me onto a wonderful author. I have since read all of her books and loved them. I also like the stories of people who are not in their twenties and of course I always like a happy ending for people who go through some very difficult times in their lives. I could relate to Maggie because I also went through some very difficult times with a teen age daughter and also a marriage that ended. It was so neat for Dan to have loved her for all of these years and to try and renew and once again refall in love and of course we all like the happy ever after endings. It may not be like that in real life but to me these characters become so real and Antoinette has a way of doing that. I just finished Beyond Midnight and it was so good I could not lay it down. Way to go Antoinette and of course Dan and Mattie will be with us forever.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Antoinette does it again, only even better 8 mai 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I didn't think I could like Antoinette's newest novel, "A Charmed Place" more than I loved "Dream A Little Dream" but I was happily wrong. Antoinette just keeps getting better and better.
In "A Charmed Place," Maddie Regan is still struggling to come to terms with the inexplicable and unsolved murder of her beloved father, when Daniel Hawke, her first and only true love, returns to Sandy Point with an agenda of his own. Family members who are bitter against Daniel, a jealous and volatile ex-husband, and a rebellious fourteen year old daughter stand firmly in the way of reunited love. Toss in a sinking lighthouse, a hurricane, and a goosebumpy touch of Antoinette's trademark mysticalness, and there you have it - a "curl up in your favorite chair and defy anyone to bother you," cover to cover delight.
Antoinette Stockenberg consistently delivers multi-faceted, three dimensional characters with honest, often heartbreaking problems, emotions and reactions. She also delivers a picture of New England that will make you want to pack your bags and hit the road for a visit. You will smell the salt air and honeysuckle, you will envision the lighthouse and Maddie's garden, you will feel as though you would recognize Maddie and Daniel if you passed them on the street. Great characters, snappy dialogue, gifted description, and a clever, satisfying plot all add up to a big A+ for Antoinette Stockenberg and "A Charmed Place."

4.0 étoiles sur 5 a modern romance 25 mai 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
For a modern romance, it was pretty good. Being in my forties also, I like the idea of a middle life romance instead of the main female character being in early twenties. It has a mature theme and identifies with today's society ( I'm not saying today's society is living right), but the book does reflect issues of today. It is the first Stockenberg novel I've read and I look forward to reading more. I have "Dream a Little Dream" and have heard good things about it. Hopefully, it will further intice me to read more of her novels.

This book is very slow moving. If a book is long because it has a lot of story to tell, that's good. But this book seemed to be long for the purpose of using as many words as possible. I like a book that moves along at a better clip.

The story itself, I loved. It's a love story about two people finding each other after years apart. They are now both middle aged and have, what appears to be, too many road blocks on her part. Maddy's own mother thinks the love of her life, Dan, killed her father. Maddy's ex-husband has gone crazy and is determined to break them up and Maddy's teen-aged daughter is on her daddy's side.

The reader finally gets to find out who did what to whom but that's not the end. It should end there but then there's a long epilog. Once a story is done, finish it.

This book is probably ideal for someone who likes to make a book last over months and the writing is very good. But I prefer a faster pace.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A lot of depth and interesting elements to this story. 5 mars 2005
Par Donna K. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I found this book to be very slow reading. Not that the story wasn't interesting, or that it dragged along, just that it was one of those books that needed to be read in small segments over the course of several days.

I really like the concept that although Maddie and Dan hadn't seen each other in over 20 years, they were still as much in love as they were in their college days, if not moreso. When they finally found each other again, they were determined not to let anything, not even past misunderstandings and family issues, separate them again. This notion of soul-mates who are destined to be together is very romantic and one I subscribe to.

The descriptions of coastal Cape Cod, and the seaside setting, restoring the lighthouse, were wonderfully vivid and made the story come alive. The conflict between Maddie and her tempermental rebellious teenaged daughter was very realistic (especially to a reader in a similar situation). The subplot of solving the murder of Maddie's father, and the mystery of what paranormal weirdness Maddie's ex-husband Michael was involved in, gave the story even further substance. The secondary characters were colorful and delightful!
