Charming the Skeptic (Cat's Paw Cove Book 18) Kindle Edition
♥ Will love open his heart to magic? ♥
Paranormal investigator Wade Preston is so sure that anything supernatural is fake, he even hosts a TV series that debunks so-called haunted places. But when the show is in danger of being cancelled, he must wow his producers by exposing the most convincing occult phenomenon he can find—Tales bookstore in Cat’s Paw Cove.
Bookworm Astor Carmichael knows magic is real, because she has the power to step into the world of any novel, and her mischievous cat often joins her. Ever since her mom abandoned the family, Astor’s frequent jaunts into fiction are a lot more interesting than caring for her siblings and father.
When Wade sets his sights on the supposedly-haunted bookstore, he gets way more than he ever could have imagined. He’d never counted on the possibility that ghosts might actually be real—or that he’d fall for Astor—the beautiful woman who manages the bookstore.>br>

Astor Carmichael is half owner of Tales and knows the store is haunted and has been for quite a while. She also has a very unusual gift herself. She meets Wade in the store talking to Ruby the other owner who has agreed to let him have a book signing in the store for his book, Occult Imposters. Wade is quite taken with Astor but she's not happy about what he does. She will she be able to convince Wade about the store and her magical town? Wade is in for quite a surprise and also comes to terms with something he witnessed as a child.
I so love the Cat's Paw Cove books and wish I lived there!! It takes you into a magical world with magical characters and very special cats. They are funny, romantic, suspenseful and just such happy reads that leaves you in such a good mood. Highly recommend.
Astor Carmichael is a book jumper and the soon-to-be proprietor of said haunted bookstore, Tales. Much of the store’s reputation and business comes from the very fact that the store is haunted. Tourists hope that when they go there they’ll see some ghostly behavior.
Wade runs into Astor when he arrives at Cat’s Paw Cove, literally. Fortunately, Astor is not hurt, but her bike is totaled. Wade buys her a new bike, and the spark between them begins to smolder.
Will Wade, the skeptic, be able to prove the store isn’t haunted? Will Astor make him a believer?
You must read this charming book to find out. Along the way, you will find some interesting twists and historical turns. I loved this book and give it five shiny bicycle headlights and an enthusiastic recommendation.
Wade is the host of a television show called <i>Haunted Hoaxes</i>, where he exposes fake supernatural events. He believes that there is no such thing as paranormal activity. When his show is about to be canceled, Wade plans to win renewal by exposing Tales bookstore as a fraud. Things don't go quite the way he expected.
I loved following Wade's conversion. The book opened with a prologue from Wade's childhood detailing a traumatic event that goes a long way toward explaining his obsession. When he arrived in Cat's Paw Cove, he simply observed the bookstore and noticed Astor right away. When they met, there was no doubt about the sparks that flew between them. Neither planned to act on them because Wade is only there for a short time, and Astor can't imagine getting involved with someone like Wade. However, they can't resist spending time with each other, and because of that, Wade is around as ghostly activity in the bookstore begins to escalate. It was funny to see him try so hard to explain away the things that happened. There was also a terrific scene involving Astor's cat, Pickles, and a compost bin that also chipped away at his disbelief.
The real kicker came when Pickles disappeared into a damaged journal, and Astor followed, vanishing right before Wade's eyes. The intensity was fantastic as Astor dealt with obstacles to her return, including an unexpected quarantine. On the other side, Wade and her family were desperate to find a way to get her back home. Help came from an unexpected source that made it possible for Astor to get back and answered questions about Wade's past. The ending was terrific.
