It's not very often that you come across a book that has everything, mystery, love, good flow, and an amazing narrator but this one has it all! I decided to get this book on a whim, not having read anything by the author before or knowing much about the storyline. I can only stand amazed at the beauty of this book. Time travel romance has been getting popular in the past few years but it is hard to find books that have good enough flow to really convince the reader. Outlander and The Time Travelers Wife both were able to do this beautifully, and now the Overseas story is going to join those prestigious ranks. This story is wholesome without smut although I was a little surprised by the amount of cursing due to the fact that the author was very conservative for the love scenes. None of the love scenes were described in much detail, just the before and after but it does flow nicely. Leaving the details to the imagination of the reader/listener. I, myself usually like a nice steamy love scene and although I was a little disappointed none were included I still enjoyed the reading. The story is classically romantic and the narrator is absolutely AMAZING! January LaVoy has the ability to really bring this story to life. I think it was the first time I've been able to really feel the teasing affection between to characters in such detail. I was very impressed with her, the writing was excellent but January LaVoy really made the story live and breath. I highly recommend this book for anyone that likes classic romance without a lot of detailed love scenes.

Although romance isn't the genre I usually read, I still enjoyed this one. It is very, "vanilla" by most romance standards, but still has an interesting twist and likeable, if not terribly developed characters. The author also managed to tie up most of the lose ends and answer most of the questions posed in the story by book's end (something I especially like author's to do.)
The book wasn't "Outlander" caliber, but then it didn't take days to read (or years waiting for the next part of the story either). I'd call it a "doughnut" book- a sweet treat, enjoyable every once in awhile.

You keep shifting timelines in this. Kate and Julian are getting it together, but they seem to have met before in France. Is it a case of past lives or time travel? I can't give too much away without spoiling the plot.
I would say that the English accents were pretty dodgy and this book is a case of 'maybe the abridged version would be better'.
