Editorial Reviews

About the Author

By day, Melodie Campbell is a mild-mannered association executive; by night, she transforms into a fevered scribe of comedy and suspense. Melodie has a Commerce degree from Queen's University, but it didn't take well. She has been a banker, marketing director, comedy writer, association executive and college instructor. Not only that, she was probably the worst runway model ever. Melodie got her start as a humour columnist, so it's no surprise her fiction has been described by editors as 'wacky' and 'laugh out loud funny'. With over 200 publications, and three awards for short fiction, Melodie's work has appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, Star Magazine, Canadian Living Magazine, The Globe and Mail, The Toronto Star, The Hamilton Spectator, New Mystery Reader, Mysterical-E and many more. Melodie is now the General Manager of Crime Writers of Canada. She lives in Oakville, Ontario with husband, two kids and giant Frankenpoodle.

More About the Author

Just released: A KILLER NECKLACE (Imajin Books) Book 2 in the Fashionation with Mystery series!

The Toronto Sun called her Canada's "Queen of Comedy." Library Journal compared her to Janet Evanovich.

Winner of ten awards, including the Derringer (US) and Arthur Ellis (Canada) for THE GODDAUGHTER'S REVENGE, Melodie got her start writing comedy. In 1999, she opened the Canadian Humour Conference. So it's no surprise her fiction has been described by editors and reviewers as "wacky" and "laugh-out-loud funny."

Melodie has over 200 publications, 100 comedy credits, 40 short stories, and nine novels.

The Goddaughter, a comic crime caper, received the following review from Library Journal: "Campbell's comic caper is just right for Janet Evanovich fans. Wacky family connections and snappy dialogue make it impossible not to laugh." Library Journal, Sept. 2012

Warning: The Rowena time travel fantasy series is not sweet romance; it is a sexy, funny, rollicking adventure series.

Format: Paperback
The thing that led me to Rowena Through The Wall by Melodie Campbell was just that, the title. I love it because its just that little bit different. I was browsing Imajin, saw the title & it immediately intrigued me. Such a clever trick and the rest of the book is equally as clever.

I strongly recommend reading Rowena Through The Wall if you're looking for a strong romantic fantasy adventure with an amazing heroine and world building that will leave you thinking about it long after you put the book down. The hero involved is amazing of course, but what really had me hooked was the world building that Ms. Campbell has created. I'd love to see more books focused in this world!

Rowena as a heroine is perfect. She has a clear voice and you can't help but fall in love with her straight up. She's definitely not a cookie cutter heroine; I found myself loving her sense of humour and her uniqueness. Campbell has created a believable heroine that makes you want to get to know her. It creates a strong bond between the reader and Rowena because we're invested in her. Thankfully Ms. Campbell creates a gorgeous hero for Rowena, most definitely an alpha male protagonist. Which is just what everyone needs.

My favourite aspect of the book has to be the world building however. In the first few pages Rowena is in a classroom, which could not be more run of the mill. Ten seconds later there's a man taken right out of midnight fantasies standing there. But the way in which this is written is so clever that its completely believable. There's no information dumping or hard to get around world changes but just this complete immersion that completely suspends disbelief.

Rowena's classroom wall is a portal to another world, this expertly crafted alternate reality.

I really liked the concept of the story and I actually enjoyed the world building too - which is why I didn't give it the lowest mark.

However...the way the heroine hopped from bed to bed was disturbing. Not because the bed hopping bothered me - the more the merrier I say! No - it was the way she would start off with any of the men: lustful, enthusiastic and totally involved. And then, all of a sudden, that same man - who always gave her much pleasure - would become a villain and evil and all kinds of bad...?

It's as if the author wanted to create a character who was comfortable with sex but needed to justify multiple partners by making those who came before the current lover evil, so she could feel ok about being with someone else now.

It was so jarring and uncomfortable it really destroyed the book for me.

I kept wanting to suggest to the heroine to take responsibility for her own actions and decisions instead of being a perpetual victim of 'evil' men who made her (in one way or another) incapable of saying 'no'.

I'm really quite annoyed that such a potentially good book was ruined with this dis-empowered heroine.

Wow--author Melodie Campbell is certainly versatile! Some time ago, when I read a short horror story by her in an Alfred Hitchcock magazine, I never thought I'd see her name on a thrilling romance novel. But what a pleasure it turns out to be...

Just as Campbell had me biting my nails till the end of her horror story, with Rowena Through the Wall she has me panting for my own Prince, like a love-starved Cinderella.

This descriptive author hooked me from the first scene when the main protagonist, college instructor Rowena Revel, gets the shock of her life when a handsome hunk of a man appears in her classroom. He's dressed in medieval attire and carrying a sword... something out of the most romantic fantasy she's ever read. When she approaches him, he gets the shock of his life by the fact she can see him. When she speaks to him, he disappears right before her eyes.

Neither realize that Rowena's classroom wall is the magic portal that leads to the man's alternate world, so they are both baffled. Row starts having sexy dreams of gorgeous, tunic-clad men in a rugged country, but when they start walking through that wall at ease, her curiosity gets the best of her. Inevitably, when she begins investigating the wall, she accidentally falls through into an alternate universe where she is kidnapped, not once, but twice.

According to the book's pre-publicity "the stakes get higher as the men get hotter." Well, if that isn't a line to keep even the least romantic woman reading, I don't know what is! I tell you, this author is good!

Thus begins one of the most fabulous fantasy adventures I've ever read. Not only is this a romantic comedy, it's also a thriller with Row's future at stake.

All I can say is "Wow!", when is the next book coming out? I'm going to have to start testing my walls to find a portal. This book captivated me so much I was barely able to put the book down. Melodie Campbell's writing is imaginative and mesmerizing as she transports her protagonist into an entirely different world. The clothing and attitudes resemble many time lines in our world history, but the surprise here is that they are all happening at once. I can only describe this story as hot, steamy, seductive and hilarious. Did I say hilarious? Yes, the humour is outrageously funny, the characters are definitely full-fledged, and the plot line is incredibly and indelibly strong.

What can a girl, a teacher of veterinary medicine in Scottsdale, Arizona, do when a very large blond man suddenly appears in her classroom wearing a tunic, leggings and a sword hanging from his belt? Of course, her first thought is that a medieval festival has come to town, but why would he be here? A need to protect the only student in the room at the time prompts her to step around her to confront this warrior. When Rowena speaks to him, he turns around and walks through the wall. Kendra, her grad student, sees nothing, wondering who her teacher was talking to.

That night she has the most real but unlikely dream of a different world, rather obvious by its two orange suns. Rowena, Row to her friends, has a gift. She can communicate in a sort of mind meld with animals, especially horses and dogs. But here there are no wild animals or birds, but a small squirrel and a fish. Suddenly a deep voice rings out "Who are you?" Dream over, she puts it out of her mind. Two days later, alone in her classroom marking tests, two men suddenly appear through the wall.

What happens when a world is short of women?:
