This was a horrid waste of time. It has no sense at all. The heroine blithely chatters away in Latin...even if you are a master of that dead language, the pronunciation and idioms employed at the actual time would never allow a modern to 'pass'. She knows nothing of the social and cultural demands of the time. She acts exactly as she would in her own time. Nobody thinks she's strange. The pacing is s-l-o-w. It's full of nonsense. They fall in love after lengthy talks. What do they talk about that so affects them? No clue. There is no character development. There's no spark to the romance. This is one of the worst books I've read. How it got such high ratings is a true mystery. It is highly recommended that you not spend time or money on this book.

Lexi Carter is inexplicably drawn to a landscape painting in an antiques shop. With its marvellous contrast of shadow and light, and its picturesque subject matter - a tree beside a creek, with an ancient city in the distance - Lexi can't resist, and buys the painting.

Soon she's wakened at 4:30 every morning by odd sounds. Birds are singing, water is gurgling...but it's not the pipes in her apartment or the sparrows outside; the sounds are coming from the painting. Mystified, Lexi realizes the painting is a portal to another place in time - ancient Pompeii.

She's soon traveling back and forth from the present to the past. Her best friends, Kate and Charlotte, are both intrigued and afraid for her. What if something goes wrong? What if she can't return from the past? But once Lexi meets Marcus, she falls in love and finds herself torn between the present and the past.

This is a fun, compelling read for fans of time travel romance. Although the problems inherent in time travel are resolved a bit too easily, A Leap in Time will keep you turning pages.

Engy Albasel Neville is a talented author and one to watch. I'll be on the lookout for the next book in her Travelers series.

This story could have been written during any time period. There was obviously very little research done by the author concerning the time period. Little effort is spent on comparing and contrasting the time periods.
Additionally, there is nothing to the rest of the story about their romance. There is no suspense, no reason to be interested in this couple's relationship.
It's basically, "I met this really great guy. We fell in love, and we are living happily ever after. The end."

First off...I was hesitant to read this book as I've only read a few time travel books. Given that I thought I would check out the first chapter and see if I was intrigued. Let me just say, that I was captivated by the first page and was not able to put this book down.

I loved the way Ms. Neville was realistic about the idea of time traveling...and answering some of my own questions about the reality of the situation.

Lexi was the kind of character that I immediately connected with and was excited to ride side saddle in her journey. Marcus was extremely swoony.
And I enjoyed watching their relationship develop.
This was an incredible read, where you will find yourself flipping through to find out what happens next. I truly enjoyed and am looking forward to the next in the series!

This is the type of book that is hard to put down. Lexi is fun and likable, and the interactions with her friends and neighbor are endearing. Marcus is sweet, sexy, and perfect. Perhaps almost too perfect. The idea of time travel through a painting is unique and creative. I love it. I gave this book five stars because I have a book hangover from staying up to read it, and I would love to read a sequel. That said, I wish there would have been a little more conflict, and that Marcus had a flaw of some kind to give him more depth as a character.

The story-line of this book is what caught my eye. I found it interesting. What I did find boring was the constant, and I do mean 'constant' need of both H & h to jump into bed whenever they thought of or looked at each other. It got 'old' quickly. Thank heavens the sex wasn't explicit. Innuendos were enough.As the story progressed, the writing went downhill quickly & became puerile. Grammar was problematic at times. Use of "I" instead of "me" occurred too much for a seasoned author. All in all, I was disappointed.

What a lovely, lovely story! From the first page I was hooked and needed to know how the story would end. This book shot straight up my reading pile when I saw it being promoted by Chicklit sites on Facebook because I was intrigued by the premise of a time travel storyline involving Pompeii where I visited last year. And Engy Albasel Neville didn't disappoint me by very cleverly bringing Pompeii to life in all its splendour. The main characters Lexi and Marcus are just beautiful inside and out and their emotional and brave journey had me cheering them on. Loved the setting, loved all the characters, loved the ending and can't wait to read the next book in this series!

This is a sweet time travel romance. While this is a standalone book, it is open-ended for future books, though no other books have been written yet. I really enjoyed this book and storyline.

The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The main characters are Lexi and Marcus. The author managed to richly describe ancient Pompeii, the characters, and get you caught up in the emotions between the main characters. Her vivid descriptions allowed me to easily visualize what things were like back then as well as what it was like for Marcus to travel to the modern day U.S.

I know the author is supposed to be writing another book for the series. I hope she hurries up because I want to see how she continues to mix in the history and modern day with the storyline.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
