When this book started out, and also handicapped by the terrible cover, I thought that it dragged on for quite a while (almost 20%) before they finally figured out that Kate had time traveled into the past. The whole back and forth, while moderately amusing just made me wish H C Brown had got on with the story a lot faster.
One scene in particular though, through all the to and fro dialogue of who she was and where she was from was when Kate fell asleep and Alex and Hamish raided her backpack. Their amazement over the things they discovered was very amusing, particularly when she woke up and found Alex wearing some personal hygiene products of hers in his hair.
The story itself was predictable but enjoyable as a time travel Highlander romance. Alex was an extremely likable guy with his honesty, tenderness and obvious love for Kate.
I liked that Kate was brave enough to try to embrace the life that she was thrust into and make the most of it, even implementing changes to help improve the lives of everyone at the keep. I particularly liked the line where Alex questions her about having to eat vegetables and she said eating vegetables would mean they get to keep their teeth longer. And not that I'm one to be particularly open about body functions, I thought it was hilarious when Alex countered Kate's insistence on eating vegetables with the fact that cabbages produced gas and she would not want him being gassy in bed.
I particularly liked that the story was well researched and that H C Brown injected a lot of historical facts into it. There were elements of time travel and knowing what the future held that was interesting as it became a question of dealing with whether or not one could change the past and how it would affect the future. I thought that was very well handled.
One final thought, all in all, this is a rather fun book to read. Don't be put off by the cover and give it a chance. It will surprise you.
