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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

I refuse to believe that LK wrote this. (anyone else notice the copyright is incorporated?) That's the only justification for how disappointing it is. From the very first chapter which just opens up about three pages into a story so the reader is left going "huh?" I've read all her books, but this just assumes that you read Pippa's story yesterday and then picked up this one today.

Tess is an annoying character. She's grieving for her sister Pippa who is lost to the past, but so what? It's so poorly written that you don't feel any sympathy or anguish for her. Her twin sister (who's name is Peaches!) is staying with her. Does she ever talk to Peaches about anything significant. Nope. Just bails on her constantly - and why is that okay? - because she's going to lose her mind. This woman is on the verge of "loosing her mind" at least 50 times in this book. At one point she goes outside and sees a medieval fully functioning castle and nearly hyperventilates because it's so nuts...sweetheart, you've been in the past for at least a week and in the castle for 3 days, took a tour, talked with Nicholas and Jennifer, etc. The time for the 2 pages of OMG is over.

John isn't nearly as unlikeable. Of course, he's absolutely not original. He's a car buff, with multiple cars one of which happens to be a Vanquish. Haven't we met that hero before?

There is a storyline about there being a villain. Yawn. There was no sense of danger to the characters. The bad guy left a note in their car...dun dun dun.

I consider this book totally skip-able. I don't think it's added anything to the series at all.
