Overview

The Charm Stone by Donna Kauffman

When it comes to love...

When expert surfer Josie Griffin has a rare wipeout, she’s shocked to discover that a real-life treasure chest is to blame—one that contains a necklace hung with the biggest stone she’s ever seen. But that’s nothing compared to the shock she gets when she places the jewel around her neck. Instantly a mysterious little kilted man appears to inform her that the charm has betrothed her to an eighteenth-century Scottish laird! It’s not that Josie has anything against handsome lairds—or older men. But three hundred plus years may be stretching things a bit. After all, she has a career to consider. And besides, she’s sure the effects of her concussion will be wearing off any minute—until the minutes turn to hours...then days...

A little charm goes a long way

The spirit of Connal MacNeil has been waiting centuries for his betrothed to appear on Scotland’s roaring shores. Josie’s arrival with the MacNeil charm stone is his dream come true. Her passion is a fiery match to his own—and her powerful body is perfect for bearing the heir he plans. He bargained his soul for this last chance at prosperity, and he won’t take no for an answer. Unfortunately the lass doesn’t quite understand that destiny has bound them for all eternity. In fact, she seems determined to deny him at every turn—when she isn’t busy with her foolhardy need to go wave hunting.

But it doesn’t take long for other, more earthly MacNeil charms to take hold. For Josie is only human—and Connal has waited long enough for the love affair of his lifetime to finally begin....

This was the first, and after reading it probably the last book I have and will ever read by this author. The characters were boring and unrealistic. The only reason this book didn't get rated a 1 by me was that she ended the book in a very pleasing if predictable manor. The plot could have been interesting but the lack of good descriptions and appealing characters made this book quite a dull read. I am not certain if this book reflects on the author's normal standards so against my best judgement I will try reading 1 other of her books.

Though she has ridden waves in Hawaii and Australia among other global locales and the Atlantic is a bit cold in May, Josie Parker enjoys surfing so much that she arises early to ride the waves off of Parker¿s Inlet, South Carolina. However, instead of the anticipated smooth ride, she wipes out because her board hit something. The next breaker includes the treasure chest that wiped out Josie. Removing barnacles from it, Josie pries open the chest to find a necklace with a yellow stone dangling from it. Suddenly out of nowhere Bagan, Guardian of the MacNeil Stone, appears though no one else see the little man. He informs her that she is engaged to Connal MacNeil, who happens to have died about three centuries ago.

Before she knows what happened, Josie heads to Glenmuir, Scotland where the spirit of Connal has awaited her return for three hundred years. As Josie and Connal begin to fall in love, she wonders what kind of future is there with someone from the eighteenth century.

It is the use of mundane items such as surfing and Josie and the Pussycats (TV show not movie) that make THE CHARM STONE a charming paranormal romance. The plot is fun especially when Josie teaches the ghost and the senior citizens of Glenmuir how to surf as Donna Kauffman never takes her story too seriously even with a warm romantic undertow. Sub-genre readers will want to ride this wave from start to finish.
