Thanks to the publisher & Netgalley for the complimentary e-ARC. All opinions provided are my own.
It’s no secret that if a book has a ghost & a romance arc I am there with bells on & Charlie N. Holmberg’s Keeper of Enchanted Rooms—book 1 of the Whimbrel House series—is a relatively soft & quirky example of that combo that I enjoyed.
At the beginning of the book Merritt Fernsby—a disowned writer—learns that he has inherited a large home on an island. But upon arriving he learns that the rumor he heard was true—the home is haunted & worse, it won’t allow him to exit now that he’s inside.
Luckily for Merritt a magic organization in charge of Enchanted homes is on the case, sending housekeeper Hulda to help.
With Hulda’s help, Merritt will solve the mysteries surrounding the home & along the way decide the home (& spirit’s) future.
This book has a sweet romance arc & a compelling story that kept me turning pages. I found the whole experience to be soft & whimsical with a couple moments of mild unsettlement so this is definitely a great read for those who don’t want to be too frightened.
Merritt has a nice backstory but emotionally I would have liked more about & from Hulda.
Though the story didn’t emotionally engage me as much as I would have liked, it was a great way to spend my time.
4⭐️. Out now!
ID: a white hand holds the ebook up in front of a black murphy bed. On top of the murphy bed mantle there's a grouping of green and silver Christmas trees and a white porcelain house. The background has a section of cream paneled wall and a section of floral wallpaper.
Give me that HEA, please.
