Hugo starts to believe Neve and decides that he will take Neve on a trip to further his political aspirations because he doesn't want her to take off again and will be introduced as his mistress. For me, this is always the best part of a romance when the hero and heroine are getting to know each other and developing friendship, trust and start falling in love. When reading Time Travel Romance books, you have to take a leap with the author that yes, we all know that time travel isn't a real thing. What makes a good story is when it appears that it is well researched to the point a reader can believe in the time period and if the chemistry between the characters is believable. Fortunately, the
author did a good job on both.
The descriptive writing about England in the 1600's lead me into the time period nicely. Neve and Hugo spend much time together so we get to know them through their conversations. Hugo was described in history as not such a kind man and we saw him through Neve's eyes that he was a incredibly smart, kind, generous and overall sexy guy. Their relationship developed slowly with tension building throughout. There was really just one love scene and was not overdone or overt. There are secondary characters such as Hugo's sister and she was also an interesting addition to the story. Max and Hugo are distant relatives and this side story also held my interest.
Why not a 5 star? At times I felt like I was watching a Sex in the City episode because Neve would ask questions of herself often that was much like Carrie Bradshaw. Lastly, my favorite time travel romances are quite formulaic. Sassy modern woman goes back in time and meets up with sexy man from the past and they fall in love in the past. This book had that but there was some time traveling back in forth that took away from my enjoyment. There will be a book 2 but this one can be a standalone.
Neve is the main female character and is dealing with the loss of a baby as well as a failed relationship. She ends up at Everly Manor while searching for a location for an upcoming film and starts the adventure of her lifetime. The current Lord, Max Everly, starts out being a very likeable person but turns out to be a spoiled, pompous brat, in my opinion. As with all good stories, there needs to be something fantastic that happens, and that's where the passage comes to play. I won't reveal any more information because I would like you, as the reader, to discover the rest of the mystery surrounding Everly Manor.
This book, even though it was long, read pretty quickly. There were a few editing errors, but nothing to take away from the story. The writing of Ms. Shapiro is good but if you read the series "Outlander", you will notice some similarities. Either way, this was an enjoyable book to read and I'm looking forward to the other books in the series.
