Review: Antique Charming by Natalie-Nicole Bates

Antique Charming

By Natalie-Nicole Bates

The night he came home…forever

Third-generation funeral director Lizzie Morton is about to have her dream realized. She has purchased the long abandoned Nichols Funeral Home and its upstairs flat, determined to restore the funeral home to its once former glory.

But a late night visitor, Adam Nichols, claims the funeral home still belongs to his family. Lizzie scoffs at his odd behaviour and outlandish claims, but when a vintage photograph appears, she soon realizes, to her horror, that Adam Nichols did once own the funeral home—more than one hundred years ago—and now she has allowed this entity to pass into her home.
My thoughts:
This one is super short - only 7 pages.  I enjoyed the story but I would have liked if it had been longer.  I like the characters right away and wish that I would have had more time with them.  I liked how she wove the title into the story in such a creative way.  She gives the reader great clues about Adam Nichols in the way he is dressed, his behavior, and the way his clothes smell.  A sweet love story.  Such a clever author - I can't wait for more!
