As for my opinion about this book? I have to say it was one of the least favorite stories I've ever read. If I could go back in time, I would have never wasted my time reading it.
It felt as if whole sentences were missing within chapters and there was no smooth transition between the chapters.
I now understand why this was free.

My Rating: Four Delightfully Entertaining Stars****
Several days ago I happened upon a free download from Amazon for a time travel romance. Well, that got my attention. I adore time travel, completely smitten with medieval English knights, totally enamored with any genre that contains romance and always a sucker for a free read. Admittedly, I'd never heard of Cynthia Luhrs but at the time, it had 56 reviews with the majority of them being positive. I even read the free sample which never includes much but does give me a general feel for the author's overall style and flow. I can generally glean sufficient information from the first few pages, allowing me to make an informed decision about the book. Obviously, I was duly impressed and decided to give Cynthia Luhrs an opportunity to entertain me for a few hours. And that she did! A Knight to Remember is the first release in a three novel collection entitled the Merriweather Sisters Time Travel Series. This book is a full-length standalone coming in at 233 actual numbered pages and does NOT include a cliffhanger. I found the story to be imaginative, fast-paced, easy to follow, well-crafted and exceptionally well edited. The narrative is beautifully written in the third person with primary perspectives from the two protagonists, beautiful introverted Lucy Merriweather from present day North Carolina and handsome, gruff, medieval knight William Brandon, now Lord of Blackford. But we also get a small peek into the twisted envious mind of the antagonist, dastardly Clement Grey, childhood friend and current Steward of Lord Blackford. There is a second antagonist, Simon Grey who is Lucy's boyfriend and the present day Lord of Blackford, but I don't recall there being a perspective from him included in the story, just from his evil ancestor Clement. Obviously, since the heroine travels 700 years into the past to the year 1307, the story also includes a historical element. Not much, but enough to be convincing which I thought was well done. Historical romance has never been my favorite genre simply because I'm unfamiliar with the correct use of language and terminology but I was able to easily follow the dialogue in this story which I found to be well executed, realistic and at times, quite humorous. But without a doubt, my favorite component of this story is the fascinating cast of characters. I thought them to be interesting as well as very engaging. If I'm not drawn into a story by its characters, then it's usually a deal-breaker for me but I found myself immediately liking Lucy Merriweather and completely caught up in her plight. As a born and bred Southern Belle myself, it was easy for me to identify with the naive and inexperienced young woman who was more the shy bookworm and homebody than the experienced outgoing debutante girlfriend type. Although this story is classified as a romance, there was very little romance. lol... And there was no sex at all...zip... none...nada. There was heated attraction, obvious mutual attraction and quite a few steamy kisses but that's pretty much it. Hey, what can I say? I like a little sex to spice things up and was somewhat disappointed to discover there was none. Generally, I only read romance that at least includes a little sex but I truly didn't notice there were no sex scenes until after I finished the book. lol... And what does that tell me? That the author did a fabulous job of entertaining me and surprisingly, without any sex. Color me impressed! There were a few curse words and I do mean very few; I could count them on maybe four fingers. So, yes, I would agree with the author's rating, this book is a safe read for young adults, twelve and older.
When rating and reviewing a book, there are always several questions I ask myself. First, did I like this book? Absolutely! Second, was there anything I didn't like about the book? Not really. In some of the reviews, there seemed to be some confusion over the actual time travel aspect of the story. Hey, folks, this is fiction, and time travel isn't real, so it stands to reason it may be a little confusing. Actually, I think I understood it rather well since there was also a slight supernatural spin on the events. It's really simple but I'm a simple sort of girl. There was a terrible storm with a lot of lightning that apparently opened a time portal and there was a curse involving the location of events, past and present which are explained in the book. Obviously, there were paranormal forces at work as well and those were never really explained. It was all a bit mysterious but all time travel is a bit mystical and perplexing, don't you think? Again, it's not supposed to be realistic, it's fiction simply meant to entertain. I don't want to give spoilers but the only plot hole I found was the fact a curse was mentioned but we never found out who actually cast the curse. We found out why but not by whom. Third, would I recommend this book? You bet! If you're in the market for a sweet time travel romance, then I suggest giving it a try. Fourth, will I read this author again? I can honestly say, this may have been my first time reading Cynthia Luhrs work, but it definitely won't be my last. And finally, was I entertained? Completely entertained. Once I began reading, I was immediately drawn into the story and could not stop until I reach the end. It was several hours well spent and which I enjoyed immensely. Great entertainment!

Yes, the story was meant to be a light hearted time travel romp, but honestly, cookies, sandwiches, fake wedding, please!!!!! Even when the bad guy accuses the supposed heroine with the fact she foiled his plot, well she actually had no part in it at all. What was that all about? I'm glad it was free as I would have been really upset if I had wasted my money. Oh, and haven't I seen that castle on the front cover before? Yes, on William Newell' s novel!
