I was delighted to find One Magic Moment in stores before it was officially released. Even though I had already pre-ordered it, I quickly snatched it up and starting reading. When you only get a new book every year, you take it when you find it! While in many ways OMM feels like a mish-mash of previous stories, it is still an enjoyable read, as we have come to expect with Ms. Kurland... There are some mysteries that I couldn't predict the outcome of, but for the most part it is a sweet and even-keeled ride. I will say with this one, that you would benefit from having read One Enchanted Evening before this. While you don't have to, I think it would heighten your enjoyment of OMM. I'm going back to re-read it now myself.

So after reading and enjoying One Enchanted Evening, I was excited to read John's story. He was the mysterious double to Montgomery, in being his twin. They were pretty much always together, the times they are mentioned. But Montgomery was the more outspoken of the two, so you feel like you know him better. That leaves John as the strong, silent type. All that we really knew about it him was that he was there and then he just disappeared. Well in One Magic Moment, we get to see what happened to him.

Tess, Pippa's sister, is still living and working at Sedgwick castle as when we left her in OEE. She has a PhD in medieval studies, and she enjoys creating that world for events that she holds there as well as the lectures she gives on occasion. She is greatly grieving for the loss of her sister; knowing that Pippa is happy and in love doesn't quite take away the sting of someone being gone from your life.

On a trip into town, Tess swipes off another side mirror.

I love the entire concept of the dePiaget/MacLeod families and can fully accept the "rules" that have been developed around time travel, paranormal oddities, etc. I even found it refreshing that the characters in this books accept time travel and are not freaked out about moving from one century to another.

But. There was no character development. John is taciturn,and that's about it. Tess is alternatively assertive and independent or on the verge of helpless tears. (make up your mind, honey). Stilted narrative such as "she stood there and shook" doesn't exactly reach out and grab the reader--not to mention, we've had an awful lot of weeping heroines in the last few offerings in this series. (does anyone actually *say* "watch it, buster" or "I think I'm losing it" in real conversation?? Both of those have appeared in at least the last three books; I don't know if Kurland is taking shortcuts or if her editor is, but those phrases are becoming tiresome.)

There's no plot development. The first 150 pages acould have been condensed to a third of that. The reasons why Tess wouldn't tell John that she knew his brother in another time are vague and pointless. It would make sense for a while, but the she-knows-he-knows-but-no-one's-telling dance is also becoming trite. There are enticing hints of Robert Cameron and Jamie MacLeod, but they're only mentioned as if they're being checked off a list somehow. It's hard to summon any sense of urgency as a reader when the writer doesn't seem interested, either.

This was embarassingly disappointing. Kurland has been doing less than stellar work recently and has killed a delightfully imaginative series with disjointed plotting, odd errors in English periods (For example, from the book: "Victorian England, perhaps?" "Believe me, I'm tempted. Especially since it would mean you'd have to wear heels and hose more often." -- Was't that a style more for the Georgians and elderly Regency characters? Search under 'Regency fashion men'.)

The characters were just okay for me, but not that engaging. Dragging in every major character from the series gave the book a grand finale feeling, which for me it is. Was this book was something she had to write but is no longer really into herself anymore, and then the book was given little editorial attention to detail by the publishers? Her editor did not seem to be really into romance, time travel, British Regency/Victorian genres or continuity issues in such a convoluted book.

I bought this because I have really enjoyed her books in the past, but her work will no longer be an automatic buy for me. I hate it when that happens.

To be perfectly honest I was disappointed in this book. Tess is not likeable, I didn't particularly adore Pippa (too passive and saintly? ) but Tess is really hard to like. And I found that too much time was wasted in the Regency reenactment scenes that I would have loved to see spent in John POV reunion with Montgomery and Rhys. And why are we all of a sudden getting hints of Connor and Jake having supernatural powers.The plot was incomprehensible, how did Everard even think he could take over John's identity in the future? Sorry, this has been by far the most disappointing Lynn Kurland time travel romance ever. Maybe she should head back to the highlands, or take on the next generation of De Piagets.
