"A CHARMED PLACE allows Stockenberg's considerable talents to truly shine... almost perfect ... a well-rounded, believable, entertaining and moving romance [with] an intellectually challenging mystery... a real story about real people whom readers will care deeply about."
"An absorbing, highly engaging read with clever and realistic dialogue. The Cape Cod setting is vividly evoked, and secondary characters add great color .... Ms. Stockenberg is a gifted prose stylist; she makes us care about the characters. The fairly explicit love scenes are not only passionate, but also tender. A truly charming contemporary romance with an uplifting theme that second chances at love are possible .... "
--"A CHARMED PLACE is a captivating mixture of mystery and romance with characters that seem so real they jump off the pages. Stockenberg is adept at capturing family relationships and conveying a real sense of the characters' feelings and motivations. An intriguing and passionate tale that will have the reader longing to read her next novel."
