My original review is posted on goodreads and I can't wait to read the second book.
4 star plot/story
3 star writing
A time travel romance with an interesting mechanic, very... Doctor Who meets Madam Pompadour.
What a heck of a plot twist! I won't spoil anything but the beauty of this book was truly in the slow release of information that trickled through the whole book. We were fed tidbits of story, just enough to make a scene mildly confusing and then have it cleared up quickly afterwards with an "aha!" moment. The way the story was written was very interesting and something I have not read before.
The modern day romance was far too quick for me and it portrayed Heather as a needy floozy, her past romance interest she felt more like a heroine that I'd want to read more about and with that being said I would love to read a historical romance from these authors, but ditch the abusive boyfriend and blind neglectful parents. They detracted from the strong heroine created when she was in the past.
The writing felt more like a beefed up outline in some places rather than a fully developed novel. And often the character's mannerisms and accents would roll on and off.
Overall, the visions, trips to the past, and Heather's (past) love connection is what kept me reading. I was kindly given the second book in this series to read as well and I look forward to read and reviewing that one too.
