This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
When 55-year-old Annah-Belle Henderson cast a spell for love she never envisioned her wish would be granted in the young nephew of her longtime friend. With a face that rivals the Norse god Thor, and a body to match, the charismatic Eric Ashworth draws Annah into a dizzying current of emotions. Should she accept the chance for love with a man twenty years younger or reject her feelings?
As a past darkness threatens to destroy her, Annah makes a decision that begins a journey fraught with judgement, betrayal, and perhaps death.
The Summer of Annah compares to Nicholas Sparks
If you read Nicholas Sparks, you'll enjoy The Summer of Annah. Written in the same genre, this new contemporary women's fiction novel follows a brief period in time for Annah-Belle Henderson, the heroine. She's an earth witch with a desire to find her one last love. True love she calls it. Along comes hot hero Eric Ashworth to rattle Annah's beliefs of how love should be packaged. A supporting cast of characters offers humor as Annah struggles with poor decisions, uncertainty, and fear. I would call this book one of the hottest new titles for the summer of 2016. Well written, poetic in places, and enjoyable overall.
Older woman meets younger man
3 1/2 STARS!
I enjoyed the main plot of the older woman meeting the man of her dreams in a younger man in this book quite a bit, but for me, there was too much “busyness” to the story. I could have stood for there to be fewer friend issues, co-workers, distractions, etc. and more of them actually enjoying their romance together. It was still an enjoyable read though.
When practicing Wiccan Annah-Belle Henderson cast a spell for love, she didn’t expect it to be a younger man crossing her path that caused an instant zing of attraction and revelation that he was the one. She tried to fight the attraction because she was really hung up about the age, but Eric Ashworth wasn’t going to let her push him away so easily.
Nephew to one of Annah’s best friends, Eric enjoys the attraction he feels for Annah and is willing to jump in head first with her. When family issues and a past evil resurrects to attempt to keep them apart, they have to decide whether it’s worth fighting for each other or not.
