3 stars.

A short story about another Guardian of Nimway Hall, the timeline is a couple of generations behind the first book. Has some of the same magical elements as the first book but not really much of a mystery.

Found a few editing errors but overall, it's an easy read but not one of Ms Hawkins' better works.

I preferred this 2nd novel in the series to the first. However this too could have been a bit shorter in its length.

It was good -- I just wished it had been longer, more fleshed out if that makes sense.

What a delightful story. I love all of Karen's stories but especially the ones with a touch of magic in them. This one it's built in being the Legend is about Merlin and Nimway, the Lady of the Lake.

Charlotte is so lost in spirit. Her twin, Caroline has died in a terrible accident. Suddenly she's cast as heir to being Guardian of Nimway Hall, so now she has to be the proper English Lady that her sister always was. Charlotte was always the rebellious, impulsive, rule breaker. In order to ease he

I totally enjoyed 1794 - Charlotte by Karen Hawkins, one of the books in The Legend of Nimway Hall series, written by a variety of romance authors. Charlotte Harrington has been struggled with who she really was since the death of her twin sister. She was no longer the wild, adventurous, brave, and curious but had become sedate, proper, and dependable like the sister she lost. She even became engaged to a friend of her brother, as that is what she thinks her sister would have wanted, not what sh ...more

Karen Hawkins has done it again. She has given us another mesmerizing and fabulous read. It is part of the Legend of Nimway Hall series. It starts out with grief and a mystery.

Good story, but a little harder for me to get into

I liked this story, but for some reason I was a little apart from it, which is not usual for me. I would give it 4 1/2 stars if I could. Marco and Charlotte are great characters. I loved how Marco kept trying to do the "right thing" as he saw it. Charlotte is starting to deal with the tragic and mysterious death of her twin sister. Because of this, she lost herself for a bit.

I liked a lot of things in this story: the relaxed pace, lovely charact

Charlotte Harrington is dealing with the loss of her twin sister when her aunt comes to chaperone her in her parent’s absence. It seems the entire household is walking on eggshells after the recent accident that took Caroline’s life and the mystery of it.

Marco di Rossi is a semi-famous Italian sculpture who has been commissioned to create a masterpiece for Nimway Hall’s formal dining room. His masterpiece is just the thing he needs to impress the Queen and this make him incredibly famous for h

Marco and Charlotte

I love the magical link between Balesboro woods and residents of Nimway Hall.

Marco was hired to design a marble fireplace in Nimway Hall. On his way to the estate the woods snared him like other men through the centuries.

Charlotte was dealing with her twin sister death. She decided she needed to be more like her sister. To make her parents happy she became engaged to her childhood friend and giving up her careless life. Until she meet Marco in the woods.

It will be interesting to see how this series works out, as there are a number of different authors writing each volume.

This particular story was quite good, although I do wonder about something a bit strange in chapter 9 more towards the latter part of the chapter.

The author wrote That the main male character, Marco's thoughts on the dishevelled appearance of the main female character, Charlotte, as "She looked like a fluffed Kitchen" .

I am not sure that there is such a thing as a "Fluffed K

The Legend of Nimway Hall: 1794 - Charlotte is part of a series written by different authors but is also a stand alone story. All of the stories revolve around a magic orb that holds the love of Merlin and Nimue and assists the direct decendants find their own true love. This is a story of being your true self and not trying to fit the mold that you believe other people want you to be. Along with love, this story contains a lot of laughs and a little sadness. Charlotte and Marco are strong, amaz ...more

Wild and Wonderful!

As I had stated in my review of the first of the Legend of Nimway stories, I have been very excited to read the compilation of these legends. The fact that they are written by some of my favorite authors increased my anticipation no little amount. Karen Hawkins added new flavors to this intriguing dish of magic and romance, and I find myself savoring the Italian spice and comforting English tea that this installment brought. Nimway Hall, what a great place to visit!!

Another winner by Ms. Hawkins. She has you hooked from the first meeting of Charlotte and Marco. I loved the magic aspect, I would have liked to see a little more, but it did not detract from the story. This is the 2nd book of the series, but I don't feel it is necessary to read them in order especially since there are others in the series that fall before these in the time line that are not yet published.
If you are a fan of Karen's books you will not be disappointed. If you have never read one

Charlotte: Nimway Hall

It was beautiful, a small round clearing in the middle of gentle, swaying trees. The bright moon sparkled on a small silvered pool filled with swaying cattails.

As always, Karen Hawkins has created a world with her words that makes me as a reader feel as if I am a part of her story. In Charlotte: Nimway Hall; we observe as Charlotte enjoys the forest around Nimway Hall. Meanwhile, Marco, a sculpture is headed to the hall to create a fire place mantel.

Magic naturally happens

And that kids is why Karen Hawkins is now on my endless list of historical romance authors that I wanna read

It was my first Karen Hawkins book and I must say that I'm not disappointed at all - oh well, I would be happier if it was longer but it's ok I know one can't have everything

On a side note, in the first chapter, when Lady Verity said it wasn't a murder I immediately thought it was definitely a murder and know I'm pretty disappointed with myself, but at least i figured out the

This is the second in the series, so definitely read the first one beforehand. Loved this book. Fun and quirky and characters you immediately love. I already want more of Lady Barton. She is begging for her own tale. The book was shorter than I would have liked, and those loveable characters not as fleshed out as they could have been. A lovely hour with a cup of coffee. Worth the price tag!

A second keeper of Nimway Hall

This second book will stand alone in the series, but does a great job of deepening the romance of the thick woods near the hall. I was intrigued by the hero and championing Charlotte as she found her place in the caretaking ladies born to Monday Hall.

Magic is in the air at Nimway Hall. I loved this book, and can’t wait to read the rest of this series. This is Charlotte ‘s story. A strong willed, bold young woman, mourning the sudden death of her twin sister, trying to be who she is not. She finds true love unexpectedly, and rediscovers her true self.

The Legend of Nimway Hall - Charlotte

Wonderful story of forbidden love. Marco and Charlotte and a perfect match. There were typos in the story that made it difficult to read at points in the book. But the overall read is very good.

Never read anything by this author before. I was pleasantly surprised. I just needed a tad more romantic meetings between them.
