Sadie Arragon here, stepping in as guest editor for this week's newsletter!
You might know me from the Enchanted Antique Shop series of magical cozy mysteries, in which I help Marley keep the magical chaos to a minimum—or at least, we try. I also teach history over at Magnolia U.
It's that time of the year we've all been waiting for—Spooky Season! Break out the cauldrons, light those cinnamon-scented candles, and let's get magical, shall we?
What's Brewing in the Cauldron? 🧙♀️
The Eerie Atmosphere is Amping Up!
First, can we talk about how the days are getting shorter, the air is getting crisper (well, as crisp as it can get in Florida), and how every store you walk into is a Halloween wonderland? It's atmospheric perfection! Now, imagine experiencing this magic through Marley Montgomery's eyes, complete with enchanted antiques and a dash of time-travel!
Cool News Alert: Frozen Charlotte Drops Soon! 🎉
To mark the spooky season, we've got something super exciting happening this Friday the 13th. (How perfect is that?) Cielle is releasing the newest novelette in the Enchanted Antique Shop series, Frozen Charlotte.
Imagine this: a sudden chill sweeps into the shop during a Florida heatwave. Yep, only in Enchanted Springs! Marley, our resident ghosts, and yours truly are all in it, and we've got to crack this chilly case before we're all frozen in time.
Here's the official blurb for the book:
Life in a gently haunted antique shop offers more than a few thrills and chills—but when an unseasonable cold front sweeps through the Enchanted Antique Shop during a Florida heatwave, proprietor Marley Montgomery and her spectral team need to act fast. If they can't crack the case of a hauntingly cold mystery object, they could risk being frozen in time—forever.
