Publisher's Summary

Tainted by scandal, Raven Eyez leaves New York to return to her mother's hometown of Heartsbridge, Texas, penniless with her reputation and career in tatters. If that wasn't bad enough, she reads in a celebrity magazine that her childhood sweetheart, who broke her heart five years ago, is getting married.
The stress is unbearable, and when she starts hearing voices whispering for her to right a wrong she has no recollection of making, she's sure she is going mad. Things go from weird to completely unbelievable when an innocent trip to a diner leaves her stranded in Heartsbridge in the year 1880.
Lance Thornton suspects his neighbors helped his fiancée leave him at the altar, so he's determined to ruin them. On his way to the bank to insist they foreclose on them for a loan he made, he bumps into Raven, mistaking her for his runaway bride, Charlotte. He decides he's not letting her get away this time, and refuses to listen to any of her claims that she isn't who he thinks she is and that she is from the future.
He's going to make this woman pay for embarrassing him in front of the entire town. Can Raven convince Lance he's seeking revenge on the wrong woman?

Interesting Time Travel Adventure

Timeless Whisper is a time travel romance with an interesting premise. Raven Eyez left her small town of Heartsbridge, Texas, on the day her mother died five years ago. That was also the day her childhood sweetheart Lance ended their relationship and broke her heart. She hasn't been back home since. Now the rest of her life has fallen to pieces after the loss of her father and her business. Day after day, a voice in her head urges her to go home to Heartsbridge, to make things right.

Right before she leaves for Texas, Raven discovers that Lance is going to be married in the small town on the day she arrives. The news devastates her further. Once she arrives in Heartsbridge, she feels herself drawn to the local diner filled with so many memories of Lance. She meets a strange woman in the diner who leads her to a back room. Raven loses consciousness and wakes up in the year 1880. One of the first people she meets is Lance, but he isn't the Lance she knew in the 2000's. This Lance is a very different sort of man who mistakes her for his runaway bride, and wants her to pay for his pain.


Raven was a strong heroine, even though she's shaken by events in the beginning of the book, she rallies quickly and is never weak. I really liked her spirit. Lance of the past was violent when they met, and while his motivations are explained later in the story, there isn't an excuse for his actions. Hopefully he can spend the rest of his life trying to be a better person. Ryder was a steady presence and I hope he shows up in the sequels.

This was a clean romance with no cliffhanger. I enjoyed the time travel aspect, and the idea of certain people as fixed points sending people back in time to repair the past. It was an intriguing premise, and I'd like to read more about it. The ending was also very different than I expected, it was a good twist. This book had plenty of humorous parts, as can happen when your heroine arrives in 1880 in Lycra running pants and a sports bra!

The narrator did a good job, it was a solid performance. Some characters have a southern drawl while others don't, and she did a good job switching between the character's voices. The narration immersed me in the story with no jarring notes. I received a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Any additional comments?

Words cannot adequately express how much I truly enjoyed this audiobook. I listened to it in one sitting and immediately went searching to see if there were other books in the series. It has everything that I look for in a story -- part historical romance and part mystical fantasy. I am already anticipating the next book!

The story starts in present day New York, and ends in 1880 Texas and centers around Raven, who is still pining away for her “lost love” – from five years ago. After being forced to close her bakery after her father’s suicide, she returns to her childhood home in Heartsbridge, Texas. It is there where Raven is transported back in time. When Raven emerges in 1880, she mistakenly runs into Lance, who mistakes Raven for a girl who jilted him on his wedding day. Although at first I despised Lance, his story is so heartbreaking that you can’t help but fall in love with him when he starts to show some compassion and regret for the way treated Raven. Lance also just happens to look a lot like her ex-fiancé.

I listened to the Audible version of the story narrated by Meghan Kelly and enjoyed it tremendously. In fact, I felt like I was watching a movie and couldn't help but remember how I felt the first time I watched a historical western on the Hallmark Channel. Thankfully Timeless Whisper is the first book in a new historical fantasy series, Timeless Hearts, so I can look forward to listening to other great adventures in this compelling new series!
