Overview

USA TODAY bestselling author Antoinette Stockenberg spins a lighthearted modern tale of romance and intrigue with a touch of magic.

In Gilded Age Newport, an upstairs-downstairs romance between a well-born son and a humble maid is cut short of marriage. A hundred years later, the descendants of that ill-fated union seem destined to repeat history.

Or not.

Liz Coppersmith, a party planner, hopes to move beyond kids' parties at Chuck E. Cheese to planning premier events among the upper crust in Newport, Rhode Island. Her first upscale client is confirmed bachelor Jack Eastman, a party pooper who's struggling to keep the family empire afloat and would be just fine with Chuck E. Cheese.

Jack is also juggling an untrained puppy, two illegitimate toddlers, a runaway mother and an aging Casanova father. But it's not all sweetness and light for Liz, either: she finds herself in the middle of an historic mystery, with an amnesiac friend, a thief on the loose and a recurring apparition that may or may not be her imagination.

Meet the Author

USA Today bestselling novelist Antoinette Stockenberg grew up wanting to be a cowgirl and have her own horse (her great-grandfather bred horses for the carriage trade back in the old country), but the geography just didn't work out: there weren't many ranches in Chicago. Her other, more doable dream was to write books, and after stints as secretary, programmer, teacher, grad student, boatyard hand, office manager and magazine writer (in that order), she achieved that goal, writing over a dozen novels, several of them with paranormal elements. One of them is the RITA award-winning EMILY'S GHOST.

Stockenberg's books have been published in a dozen languages and are often set in quaint New England harbor towns, always with a dose of humor. She writes about complex family relationships and the fallout that old, unearthed secrets can have on them. Sometimes there's an old murder. Sometimes there's an old ghost. Sometimes once-lovers find one another after half a lifetime apart.

Her work has been compared to writers as diverse as Barbara Freethy, Nora Roberts, LaVyrle Spencer and Mary Stewart by critics and authors alike, and her novels have appeared on bestseller lists in USA Today as well as the national bookstore chains. Her website features sample chapters, numerous reviews, many photos, and an enchanting Christmas section. www.antoinettestockenberg.com

Wow, 2,000 pages. Nice. As I was reading through the introduction, I noticed it said, for nook, about 450 pages for a printed book. But this was still a nice sized book for nook and it went pretty fast. I enjoyed it. Sure it was not perfect, but how many books are? I liked the action, the plot, the people and details. I was not overwhelmed by an over abundance of characters, nor disgusted by the langauge or violence. It was pretty well edited and made me laugh out loud several times. There is sexual tension. It has a nice ending. I recommend this book for readers 16 and up. AD

I enjoyed this book. I like the style of writing, which is why I buy them. Communication between the characters instead of long winded decriptives. I appreciate that. Rock on.
