Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Tracey was born and raised in New Zealand, and that's where her love of horses was formed. Her grandfather taught her to ride at four years old, and she couldn't get enough.
Her love and passion for Abraham Lincoln and the entire Civil War era might have come from her American father, however, he lays no claim to influencing her. Tracey's mother used to tell her she was simply born in the wrong place in the wrong time. 
Tracey hasn't always wanted to write. It took her a long time to get started, but now she doesn't seem to be able to stop, the joy of escaping to the 1860s is too much fun.
She's been happily married and gooey in love with her husband for sixteen years. They live in the Pacific Northwest with their two sons.

Since I read the other reviews & they pretty well describe what happens in the book I'll focus on the actual written book. After reading the first book I was in doubt this one would be very much different, but it was better.
I still cannot give it above a three star but it was more interesting. I find it hard to believe the other reviews after actually reading the book. But, I believed them enough to buy all four books even before reading the first one, much to my disappointment.
I found the main characters, Sophie & Emma to be shallow, self-centered, weak, uninteresting women especially considering they are supposed to be from this time period.
The actual history in the book is really great & very interesting. Makes you want to read more on the civil war and the events leading up to the Lincoln assination.
It also invites the reader to wonder what you would actually do if you were in a position to actually change history.
Possibly the third in the series is better yet.

Wow! I can't rave enough about the Civil War Bride series! Received the first one free, but couldn't stop with just one. The characters are amazing, the plot riveting, and historically my favorite period. Jumping from century to century not a problem. But the dilemma of how to not change the course of history makes a lively discussion. I'm on the Bride Spy now (#3) and have read straight thru the first 2. Can't wait for 4 & 5 and then 6 when available. Huge Kudos to Tracey Jane!!!!XXXXOOOOO

The plot for this, the second book in the Civil War Brides series is good like the previous book in the series. The characters continue to be interesting and well rounded. The fact that this volume may be read after The Bride Price, or on its own is a good thing. The new lead female Emma is very well written.

The only problem might be with how quickly both Emma and the main male character, Clayton, accept the "I'm a time traveler" plot. I realize that it cannot take too long for a character to adjust to something like this in a book that is only a few hundred pages in length (even if it were longer it would soon become tiresome for them to always "freak out" about the situation). I also thought Clayton's reaction to Emmaa's 21st Century technology a bit unrealistic. He did not seem to really react to Hannah's iPod, the ear buds, or the music she played for him. He did not "freak out".

All-in-all, this is a good continuation of the series and I can not wait to begin reading the next book in the series.

This one is a sequel and should be read in order because the story picks right up where The Bride Price left off. The plot formula is much of the same which I enjoyed. It tied off a few dangling threads from the first one, but also introduced a few new ones and there is still a feel of not quite understanding what the villains are up to.

The story shifts from Sophie and Jamie in the lead roles though they still get a huge amount of page time. This story focuses on Sophie's younger sister, Emma Wellington and Richard's younger brother, Clayton Madden. Neither of them are like their siblings in personality and character. Sophie was studious and driven while Emma is shallow and a flighty commit-o-phobe. Clayton is a respected member of government close to the president and is now the responsible sibling since his brother never came to terms with what happened to their family.

Emma lives in the present and life is not very good with her sister and brother and law missing/presumed dead. She continues with her interests- dancing, shopping, friends and flirting even while she worries about how she's going to deal with the change in financial situation and missing her family. She is being watched by a guy in a car so obviously the FBI wonders if she had something to do with the disappearance. Then one night after shopping, she tumbles through time and ends up in a carriage house in 1863 Washington DC.

Clayton is smitten by the oddly-dressed and odd mannered woman whom he finds on his premises. Before he can make sense of things, Andrew scares her and off they go chasing her through the streets. She sprains her ankle and now she is in his care.

All of Tracy Jane Jackson's book have been very good reading. I will buy more books by her. I am a reader that is hard to please but she has kept my interests in this series.

There isn't a book by Tracey Jane Jackson that I could put down. If you are looking for mystery, history, and romance, these are the books to read.

Too much dialogue, too many people, too little action.

I like the idea of time-travel romance, the dilemma of stay or return (if that option is available). I particularly liked the revealing of Lincoln's death to Clayton, one of Lincoln's cabinet.

Emma and Sophie (from the present) act like hysterical, spoilt children. They go shopping, they go to a party, they get slightly injured so they have to be carried, they have migraines and, in a childish pique, they go out for an early morning ride when it's dangerous (of course, the men didn't tell them it was any more dangerous then usual and only forbade them to leave the house) and get kidnapped. When they are reprimanded (like children), they tearfully declare they'll never do anything against their dear husbands' advice again. Tell me what century these girls were raised in anyway?
