A quick read with suspense to keep your interest from the start. Chloe has to deal with a jerk of an ex-husband but with the love of her mother and partner she pulls through. I just loved the book and for a quick read you really need to get this one.

A lovely tale that is a mix of the past and present. Once again, Aubrey masterfully blends a historical tale with a present day story.

I volunteered to review this book without any promises about the review (the rating or the posting).

The moment I saw the cover and read the blurb, I knew that this book had everything I wanted and more. I didn’t realize how much this book would suck me in. I would become. I never wanted it to end and truly hope that Ms. Wynne does a second book with these characters. I was extremely surprised to find out that there really was a Pungo Witch and that her ghost is said to still be a part of the cur

The story’s title and cover fits the story so well! There are so many interesting twists and turns as well as historical facts that really kept this story interesting and moving. I really loved how the past played with the future. How eerie it all seemed you didn’t know whether to run and hide or wrap your arms around it. My heart broke for both Chloe and Grace they have a lot in common but are so different. They are kind souls who give so much to those around them.

Ms. Wynne is a wonderful autho

February 2006, Chloe bolted up in bed, frightened by a dream – no, not a dream! She smelled smoke and ran toward the barn! Paul, her trainer and business partner, met her at the barn as they tried to save the horses. As Paul is injured, kicked in the head by a frightened horse, and she drags him from the burning stall with her last remaining strength, she collapses but sees the face of her ex-husband standing over her! How did he get there so quickly??

I am a lover of many romance sub-genres and this story has them all rolled into one with a story that will suck you in and keep you listening! By the cover, you would expect a story about the love of a woman and her horse, and that would be enough for me to listen to it, but to my surprise, there is so much more to this. Chloe Hicks has been divorced for three years and has been working on her ranch with her business partner Paul. When fire strikes, injuring herself and Paul, not only does her b ...more

Dante's Gift - I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Well written with a conversational style, this interesting story blended the past with the present creating a heartwarming, loving feeling. The characters are funny, likable and realistic, along with their dialog. The storylines meshed together immersing the reader and too quickly the end appeared. A quickly read, relaxing book. Clean with no profanity. Needs minor editing. 4*

Saving Grace is a wonderful start to a new series. Aubrey Wynne has managed to write another book, or in this case a small novella, that will compel you to read the rest of the series. I am becoming a pretty decent fan of the author I would say at this point. She managed in such a short amount of pages to thrill me with some lore, romance, and suspense.

I grew up a military brat, and part of that time was spent in Virginia. Virginia is a wonderful state full of rich history. So having a story wi

There are so many layers to this story and no author does that better. You can tell loads of research went into the story and this clean read is so well done. From the mysterious ghost, the interwoven tale that is told along with Chloe's story, Michael the ex-husband and his antics. The characters are as well developed as the story and the fact that part of the story actually is true just makes it better. I love how slowly the relationship is developed and the little bit of paranormal that sneak ...more

This is a quick read which tells the story of Chloe, a woman with integrity, strength and so much love. Her friendship with Jackson is wonderful, especially after all she had been through. I felt their connection and could have happily read more pages with the two of them staring in as they were such good characters, plus I have a little crush on Jackson! This book is also a story about Grace, who was wronged 300 years ago. We find out what happened to her, how she dealt with it and ho

Saving Grace by Aubrey Wynne is book one of Enchanted Keepsakes series. It is a very shot book, but has a lot of stuff crammed in on those pages. I don't say this as a bad thing. You actually are getting dual stories. The 2nd part of the story is taken from the history books.

There are so many aspects to this story – a little bit of history, a ghost, a tragic fire that leaves two people injured and one horse killed, an unhinged ex, and a sexy historian. In the beginning I wasn’t sure how the dual stories (one set in 1706 and the other in 2006) were going to tie together. But as the stories progressed, I was appreciated how the author told the two stories and then wove them together. While I’ve enjoyed all of this authors books that I’ve read, this is my favorite so f ...more

This story takes place in two time period, 1705 and 2006. It's about Grace Sherwood who was convicted of witchcraft, survived a ducking and spent seven years in jail. In 2006, Chloe runs from her ex-husband who tried to burn down her business. She meets Jackson after buying what was called a witch's ball from a Enchanted Keepsake shop. There's a saying that if something catches your eye and you buy it there it will lead you to your true love. This is the day that she meets Jackson. The story mes ...more

This book was gripping, well written & the chemistry between the characters sizzled throughout this wonderful read.

Superior characters, a wonderfully entertaining plot and a setting that makes you want to visit - this book has it all. A wonderful complex romance with intrigue and adventure in abundance. I was enticed and entertained from page one, onwards. The five stars is easily given as this book was awesome.

A fun quick read! 4.5 stars

Nicely written by author Aubrey Wynne, Saving Grace is a short sweet novella with a fantasy touch! It involves two charming characters Jackson, a historian and Chloe, a young woman with a bruised soul. Together, they will embark on a journey of discovery, as they find the story of Grace, a young woman wrongly accused of witchcraft. Be prepared to travel from present to the past. This is why, this story is so special.

If you only plan on listening to just one audiobook this year then this should be the one as the author's creativity of blending between the old and the new, the past and the present, will quickly pick you up an transport you into this beautifully told story full of accusations, hurt and betrayal. The characters are intoxicating and the narrator's voice lulls you like a beautiful lullaby and makes you want to stay within the storyline.

Sweet story with some suspense! I enjoy Aubrey Wynne's story telling, and how she blends the past with the present. I enjoyed the bit of ghostly element as well. I listened to the audio for Saving Grace, and the narrator does a great job. The narrator's voice fits the tone of the story very well, and she gives a clear performance. Chloe awakens to her barn on fire, she receives some burns from trying to rescue her horses, but she's physically okay. Chloe runs a horse business, and she can't do t ...more

A really interesting story with a lot of elements I like. I so love the environment and how the story is build up but over-all I still felt that the story was a little bit slow. I dont know I got a little bit bored in the beginning of the story, the story do start "mid-in" so to say but after the first chapters it is a lot of talking and it is slow. It is a way to fill in the history and the relationship but also this is a very short read so it felt a bit to much for my liking.
