Publisher's Summary

Andrew Merrick was whisked from his home in England, 1848, to another time - the very day a mob had attacked his family. Wondering why he remains in this strange place, all he wants is to find the treasure his father had hidden, hoping this might take Andrew back home. But he's running out of time. When he meets a lovely woman in this new century, he feels she is the one who will help him.
Halle Chapman has come to England to find her missing father. What she finds instead is a nice man who claims he's from the past. Although she doesn't believe in time-travel, deep in her heart, she knows she must help Andrew. What she finds instead is that discovering the key to her future lies in the past. Now, to return to her own time, she needs to solve the mystery surrounding Andrew Merrick and his family's murder.

Delightful Victorian Time Travel Romance πŸ’‘

This book was truly a delight to listen to. I won't give the story away.....but it's got the feel of an old fashioned clean Victorian romance with the uncertainty of a time-travel novel. This combination can sometimes seem disjointed but this author pulls it off beautifully. She effortlessly weaves in mystery, romance and just the right amount of suspense to maintain the intrigue. The H/h characters are such kindred spirits and their romance is lovely to witness. πŸ’

The narrator truly makes this book excel. It is a pleasure to listen to a book where the narrator doesn't interfere with the story. Her accents and inflections are, in my opinion, impressive. She is on my short list of great narrators for sure! πŸ˜‰

I enjoyed this book and recommend it to those who enjoy an adventurous romance that's full of charm and mystery.

I am grateful that the author, narrator, or publisher provided me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review because it was a joy to listen to.

Loved loved this great story and audio

Any additional comments?

What a delightful time travel that really pulls the reader in giving you mystery, love, and adventure. I thought it was well written and the deleterious what wonderful. It is an audio that I will listen to again. I really enjoyed how the past and future are mixed. The mystery and the unknown really had me hooked.

Ms. Peterson is becoming one of my favorite narrators. I love her voice and how she puts so much emotion into it for her characters. She really brings the story alive for me pulling me in with an audio I had trouble putting down. There are no background noises, no repeating of words, no volume changes, just a wonderful clean, clear audio that really grabs your attention. If any breaks were taken I could not tell, the deleterious is wonderful, powerful and totally delightful. I had no trouble at all picturing each scene from the thrill, confusion, excitement in my mind. Her performance as always is outstanding and one you get lost in. This narrator has a very smooth and rich voice she has no trouble pulling off each scene making you feel as if you are there. Her male voices are just as wonderful as her female’s ones. You always know what each character is feeling and just what they are going through. Her voice is one I never get tired of listening to. I am so looking forward to listening to more of her work.

Andrew is a delightful character he has mixed emotions on why he went ahead in time. Halle feels lost not knowing her father and is spending her time hunting him down. We the listener has mixed emotions with him. You have to even wonder if he is really real, than you wonder just how he is mixed up in all the mystery around him. My emotions were all over the place why listening to this audio. There is a lot of mystery, a little confusion for the characters on how the time travel is possible. I loved how that is played out from getting Halle to believe he is from the past. It really is a great plot that is well written. I look forward to getting to know more of this authors work.

A lovely, exciting Victorian time travel romance

Who was your favorite character and why?

Halle's character really appealed to me as she was intelligent, confident and brave. I loved how she dashed to action when the occasion warranted her help. As I listened to the story Halle felt very real to me. I liked Andrew as well but he was more like a fairy tale prince and I think that added to the charm of the story. Their romance was magical and charming and I just loved that.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

There were so many scenes in this book that I enjoyed but I loved all the suspense filled scenes involving Halle and the family's enemies.The final showdown where the house is attacked is filled with danger and suspense. It had me on the edge of my seat wondering how successful Halle and Andrew were going to be in altering the family's fate.The narrator did a wonderful job of performing the characters and I found it very easy to listen to. She really brought the story to life and I got a great sense of the characters' emotions and feelings through her performance.I thoroughly enjoyed this whole book and I couldn't put it down. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There was one very poignant and romantic scene towards the end of the book that I found quite moving.

Any additional comments?

I received a copy in exchange for my honest review.

A wonderful time-travelling, suspenseful romance

Full of twists and turns, this book kept me enthralled all the way through. Just when I thought the plot would be explained, another layer of the story would peel back to reveal further complications. The characters are interesting and flawed, adding depth to the story. Without making this a spoiler, I did struggle a bit with the sudden happily ever after, which felt a little unrealistic.

I especially enjoyed the narration of this book. Nancy Peterson brought the characters to life, keeping true to their personal backgrounds.
