Fantastic narration in Texas time travel tale!
Faith and the Texas Lawyer by Carra Copelin is a sweet historical romance with plenty of sexual tension, but without all the embarrassing salacious details. The story is basically a classic time-travel romance wherein the modern day heroine finds herself transported back in time to 1900 Galveston, Texas after she puts on a vintage dress she found in a trunk in the attic of an old mansion she recently bought (Faith is from 2016 and in the business of renovating old houses).
Our hero Joe is a lawyer who was recently jilted by his fiancé. To get a fresh start, he moves to Galveston in 1900 after finding a beautiful old house he buys and intends to settle down in. It's not long after Joe moves into his house when he discovers Faith in his attic in one of his old fiancé's dresses.
Faith doesn't necessarily mind being transported back to 1900 except for the fact that it's only a few days before September 8, 1900 - the day when a Category 4 hurricane ripped through Galveston, Texas, killing an estimated 6,000 to 8,000 people. Faith, Joe, and a few of his friends do as much as possible to prepare the mansion and the rest of town for the impending storm and, of course, they share an instant attraction and fall in love in the process. What's different from most of the other time-travel romances out there is that the heroine is very much from modern day America - she's wearing cut off shorts and a tank top underneath that vintage dress she tried on and her cellphone is transported back with her. In fact, her cell phone helps "prove" she is from the future.
I listened to the Audible version of this story narrated by Meghan Kelly. She did an outstanding job, differentiating between male and female voices and changing the tempo in the performance when warranted. Meghan's narration definitely contributed to my enjoyment of this book. I received a copy of this audio in exchange for an unbiased review.
Where has this author been hiding?
I loved the narrator as she puts the excitement of the characters into her voices. She definately added to the experience.
Hm, maybe Jude Deveroux's A Knight in shining armor. Also, a wonderful time travel book.
No I have not.
The house that takes you back in time.
