First off, referencing another review of this novel, I don't know if this book was released before or not, but I see nothing wrong with an author re-releasing a book - and I don't see anything wrong with an author (I am one) making money, either.

This is a well-written, fun story. I liked the setting (old and new Columbia, SC), and became quite fond of the characters. Two women exchange times - a vehicle that's been done before. However, where the authors of these stories tend to favor one character over the other (usually, the one who travels to the past), this author does a very good job of balancing the development of both characters. As a result, the reader is treated to a well-thought-out reaction of a modern woman to 1825, and an equally-cogent view of a woman from the past reacting to the modern world. It's refreshingly intricate in its treatment of both.

The story line is fun, with sufficient twists and turns to keep the readers on their toes. And the ending is satisfying and complete for all the characters. The period pieces (past and present) are thoughtful, colorful, and accurately reflect the main characters' reaction to each.

I recommend this without reservation. If you've read it before, you'll enjoy it again. If you're a first-time reader like I was, you're in for a treat.

I love how the author introduced a story with 2 heroes and 2 heroines - something that I don't think it's been done before especially when Catherine of 1825 travelled through the present and meet the love of her life. The story is filled with whimsy, courage and love especially from the point of views from the characters! I don't want to ruin the story for the other readers but let me just say that this is one of the best time travel books I've ever read in which the author utilized a different approach in that travel time through the consciousness, very unique!!

I love time travels as a whole, but having the two characters switch places in time was such a fun and unique twist. Going back and forth between the two women worked especially well when the author left one of the women in a tense situation. Ordinarily I would have stopped at the end of the chapter, but with so much at stake, I had to read on to make sure everything turned out all right. Whew! Ms. Hiatt made me work to see my happily ever afters. But it was worth it.

Bridge Over Time takes time travel romance a step further than the normal run-of-the-mill dime store novel. Instead of just having the modern heroine rocketed back in time or a sword-wielding hero suddenly thrust forward into the 21st century, it gives readers the best of both worlds: a switch. How intriguing! The result is two complete love stories--one set in the pre-Civil War era and the other in 2013.

Kathryn Monroe is a thoroughly modern woman--college educated, fashion forward, and an advocate for whatever cause might be "in" at the moment. A party girl, she had found plenty of short-term loves, but never an everlasting one. The right man just hadn't come along. At times she thinks maybe there should be something more...and maybe she would see it if it she could just slow down long enough to look.

When her mother summons her from her busy life in Washington DC to the ancestral home in South Carolina for a costume ball she agrees, thinking a break from her hectic life would be welcome. Once she arrives, she sees her mother has went all-out, restoring the plantation to its early 1800s pre-war glory. As the festivities begin, Kathryn descends the staircase just as the old clock begins to strike the hour....and then everything changes.

Catherine Prescott is a proper Southern lady, fresh off a "refining" tour in London. Chaffing against societies restrictions, she stretches the boundaries whenever she can. If only she were free to choose her own life and marry for love. Unfortunately, she knows soon her engagement will be announced to an odious man with a reputation as a rake.

How can one not like the concept of time travel? All the romantic influence the idea inflicts is mesmerizing...allowing you to soar and lose yourself into the realm of fantasy and all the "what if's". And Ms. Hiatt took me on a wonderful romantic, historical adventure full of suspense...which is hard to do since I've probably read every time-travel romance written and am always seeking something new and original without it being too far fetched. This story wastes little time with preliminaries. Within a few chapters, Kathryn Sykes-Monroe is flung back in time.

Kathryn Monroe is a smart and sophisticated D.C. socialite...in limbo with her life. She's needing a direction in her life goals. Kathryn is a pretty, blue eyed, dark brown haired young woman of 23 years. And while visiting her parents in S. Carolina, she travels back in time approximately 200 years to 1825, where she switches places with her ancestor, Catherine Sykes-Prescott.

I liked this story. It was humorous at times and entertaining to envision the confusion, prim and proper 19th century Catherine causes with the people she meets in the 21st century. Her odd politeness and strange phraseology while conversing caused me to chuckle. They'd look at her like she just landed on earth. I liked the dual plot-lines with what each woman was experiencing. 21st century Kathryn adapting to and enjoying the 19th century like she was born to live in that era...while 19th century Catherine was fascinated by and loving the 21st century and all its fast paced technology. I liked how each woman found love and romance without it overwhelming or overtaking the plot. I liked how 21st century Kathryn finally found a just cause worthy of her activist dedication in 19th century America....helping to abolish slavery.
