Author Claire Channing needs to write a bestselling book to salvage a failing career. She moves to her grandmother’s rustic cottage, but without the deed, thaock to prevent a deadly tragedy, but can love endure past the limits of time?
My Thoughts: This is a truly entertaining novel. It's genuinely fun and engaging. The author has done a marvelous job of bringing the past and future together to make a charming and humorous storyline. The characters are well developed and easy to relate to. Claire is a down to earth young woman trying to make a living writing historical novels; just an average girl whose life is changed forever one night when she puts on her grandmother's shawl. This novel was hard to put down, the plot is fast-paced and keeps the reader entertained.
A historical novel is full of humor and suspense with many twists in the plot that will keep the reader wondering what will happen next. A truly enjoyable read and highly recommended.

More from Linore
I wanted to write a Regency time travel for years. When I saw the movie “Kate and Leopold” I thought, Oh no! Someone used my idea! But I needn’t have worried. Leopold (Hugh Jackman) was a Victorian gentleman, not a Regencian. Secondly, though I enjoyed the flick, I kept thinking it missed many opportunities for humor. (Having written a screenplay since then, I now realize why it missed so many: tight scripts just don’t have room for all the scenes that could be fun.) When I wrote my story, however, I was able to include a lot of the humor scenes that had been floating around in my head for eons. It’s one of the reasons the book is a lot of fun to read—particularly when the Regency hero appears in the present. On a side note, I started this book and then dropped it—for years—mostly because I wanted to write it as Christian romance like my other Regencies. But I kept running into roadblocks. And Christian publishers weren’t interested. Finally I realized I had to let God out of MY box and write the story he was giving me, not the one I thought he should give me. After that, it came together remarkably easily and quickly. And, I think, in a very fun way. I might even do a sequel.
