I guess I didn't realize it's a novella, and was disappointed when the story ended, but if you go into it with the proper expectations, it's a wonderful tale.
Isabeau Munier is a witch who was able to escape being burned at the stake in the 1690s by transporting herself through magick away from the flames. Unfortunately, her spell twists so that instead of leaving her small town, she leaves her time period and ends up almost 300 years into the future, landing in the 1960s. Isabeau eventually realizes that she can't physically leave the borders of the town now known as Lobster Cove, or else the time travel spell is triggered and she ends up hurtling into another era once again.
After fifteen years of bouncing through time, she's come to terms with that limitation - hey, better than burning at the stake - and is at peace with her life, until a new man returns to Lobster Cove and turns her emotions inside out.
Grayson Wright (Mr. Right? LOL!) is immediately intrigued by the sexy blonde renting his uncle's property - property that has now been passed down to him. As Isabeau's new landlord, he finds himself oddly curious about the woman and her relationship with his uncle. Sparks fly between Gray and Isabeau, until it becomes too hard for her to keep her secrets from him.
Will he - can he - believe her story?
I whipped through this book in a few hours and enjoyed every minute. I would have loved to see the whole tale slowed down and drawn out - maybe even include a few more scenes from other time periods. But for a novella-length story, it was well-plotted and engaging, leading to a satisfying conclusion. I loved Isabeau's strong-willed character (although I truly hated her name) and while I would have liked some more development of Grayson's character as well as his Uncle Stan, I liked the way the author dealt with all of her characters. There were enough loose ends that it left me wondering about a lot of things and wishing there was more to read. A sequel maybe? Or a long-version of this same story? *sigh* I also felt like the cover didn't convey the tone of the story as well as it could have - I mean, yes it starts with a witch about to be burned at the stake, but the general tone of the story is more of a slow burn than the whirlwind suggested by the cover art.
If you enjoy time travel romance, I totally suggest giving this quick read a try. Enjoyable, intriguing and filled with romantic tension, this made for a great evening of summer reading. 4.5 stars of fun time travel romance.
Grayson is skeptical about Isabeau and with the help of a family friend, Sherri he thinks Isabeau has taken advantage of his uncle and he wants to find out the truth.
Grayson moves in to the house where Isabeau has an apartment and slowly gets to know his uncle and Isabeau.
He finds himself thinking about her and wanting her. Isabeau is trying to keep Grayson from finding out she is a witch so she offers to help him clean out the attic.
In this process they start to fall for each other. Isabeau hasn’t had any male companionship in many years and is afraid to let her guard down but sharing living space as well as a bathroom can be a little tricky.
When Sherri goes into premature labor, Isabeau tries to help and Sherri won’t have any of it. She calls the ambulance and goes to the hospital where the husband and Grayson have showed up. Grayson is torn between his heart and his brain telling him to believe in Isabeau.
He goes to chase after her and she disappears before his eyes. He finally starts to believe the rantings of his uncle and knows he loves Isabeau and has to get her back.
He searches for the book where is uncle kept all the spells and he has Sherri help him perform the spell. He hopes it isn’t the last time he sees Isabeau. After Sherri recites the chant she is exhausted and needs rest. Grayson doesn’t know if it worked so he waits to find out. Read on to see if Grayson and Isabeau get their happy ending.
I really enjoyed this book. I am usually not one for the time travel but it wasn’t the focus of the book and it had to be shown at times to keep the story moving along. I like how Isabeau is a witch but she is a good witch and sometimes it is hard for people to understand there is always good and bad in everything. I also liked Grayson being so concerned about his uncle being taken advantage of but also how he had a huge heart and wanted to believe in Isabeau and the love he felt for her.
I would recommend this book.
In 1692 Isabeau was going to be burnt at the stake until she cast a spell which saved her life but took her forward in time. The curse has trapped her in Lobster Cove: if she tries to leave the town lines, she gets sent into a different time.
Isabeau meets Stan when she finds herself in the twentieth century. He helps her find a job and home and they become good friends. However, when he dies his nephew Grayson, makes an unexpected visit to her shop.
Will Grayson believe the rumours about Isabeau being a gold digger? Will Isabeau's ever be free of the curse that keeps her trapped in Lobster Cove?
This was a short, romance book with a small aspect of time travel and witchcraft. This was an enjoyable read and I liked the characters. I loved Havoc - his bond with Isabeau was definitely unique and sweet.
