Book Review: Antique Charming
Today's review is on Antique Charming by Natalie-Nicole Bates
Antique Charming is an extremely short story that didn't allow for much of a story. Seven pages; including the cover, is just not enough! For me those seven pages are but an introduction for a unique love story that I can just see developing. Is this meant to be just that? I don't know.
Lizzy Morton has just purchased an old funeral home with an attached apartment just a few weeks ago. One night she hears knocking on the front door and comes face to face with Adam Nichols, the previous owner of Nichols Funeral Home, the exact funeral home that she now owns and lives in.
Thinking that Adam is simply confused she lets him in and allows him a bath and the spare bedroom. After all, he looks so tired. He is also remarkably attractive even though he thinks she is his "female assistant".
The next morning Lizzy becomes the confused one when she calls the realtor's office and finds out that not only has her realtor never worked there, but that the funeral home has never been up for sale. Frightened beyond reason, Lizzy finds comfort in the arms of Adam.
Antique Charming is an excellent introduction for a book that could be amazing. I'm just sorry that It didn't continue beyond the seven pages. Just to to short! Why bother?
