I am a HUGE Civil War buff (kinda like Sophie) and I have read all of the books in this series. I have to say that I did, on the whole, enjoy them. However, Ms. Jackson's stories are in need of some refreshing. For example, I have never seen so many characters "pinch the bridge of his nose" to show that they were getting upset, or trying to hold onto their temper. Really? This is the ONLY way Ms. Jackson can show these emotions? I think a "ran his hand through his hair" or "closed his eyes for a moment" would not have been amiss. She also seems to be a bit limited and repetitive in her word choices. Emma, Hannah, and Victoria all seem to call there spouses at some point or another "baby". However Emma is guilty of saying it the most. It got to the point of being ridiculous and painful to read.

The constant use of this endearment and the over use of the bridge pinching is annoying, however I did notice that a lot of her plots are the same! Just the names and a few points are changed. That to me says a lot and it is not a good thing.

Despite these issues, her take on the time travel, and the social conventions of the time are commendable. And like I said, it was and enjoyable read. However I can only give the series a 3 star rating.

Number 5 of the Civil War Brides Series:

Like the first four, this book contains time travel, history, mystery, romance and some modern humor. I loved the first book in the series, I think this is my second favorite, although they are all great reads. Victoria is one of many before her who has been thrown into the middle of the civil war battle from the modern day Chicago where she was working on her photography and dodging the FBI who are trying to find out where these people keep disappearing to. They want to protect Victoria, she just wants to be left alone.

Once she has been thrown into the Civil War era of 1864, she finds out where the people before her have been transported to, and by the time she finds out how and why she ended up thrown into the past, she is told that she can return, will she return? She has a man who is constantly lurking in background, creeping her out with his constant strange comments. Obviously a mad man, he does kidnap her, you'll have to read the book to see how that turns out.

Tracey Jane Jackson, author of the Civil War Brides Series, is quite the Civil War buff. She weaves history into her books, much history many of us may have learned and forgotten while in school. While reading the time travel series you will find yourself learning again about the war between the states. It is told in such a way that you learn the history this author has in her head and heart as she loves this time period, while enjoying great stories much of which were true. Of course the time travel is not, but that is that the great thing about fiction, you can weave stories around true events, and throw in all the extras that make a good story. This author does just that!

This fifth installment in the Civil War Brides series was one of the most enjoyable for me. My curiosity was roused almost from the instant that Victoria ended up in the past and was mistaken by Quincy Butler as a rebel spy. That part didn't last long before he was blown over by the truth that the woman he stumbled upon was from the future.

Victoria Carrington was a bit at loose ends when her best friend and roommate, Hannah, had disappeared and was only the latest in a long line of disappearances that stumped the FBI. It wasn't until she personally was sucked back in time to 1864 that she learned the whole incredible truth. First she is mistaken as a rebel spy by a dashing union officer because of her Kentucky accent and her appearance in the middle of a battlefield, but then she suddenly becomes his nurse when he is shot on said battlefield.

Victoria accompanies Quinn to DC where she is in for another shock when she sees her friend Hannah is Quinn's older brother Christopher's wife and expecting. The shocks are almost too much, but the biggest shock and not the most welcome in some ways is when she realizes that she has fallen hard for the handsome Union Officer, Quinn Butler. Her past when it comes to relationships both within her family and with love is littered with betrayal so confronted by her feelings, she runs.

Quincy wakes up from his surgery and the first face he wants to see isn't present and those around him try to stonewall him. Quinn shows that he's made of sterner stuff and chases his Rebel back to Harrisburg where she journeyed with friends and family. He sets her straight really quick about how its going to be. He's not like those people in her past who walked away from her and he'll prove it.

I have read 93 books on my Kindle since August 1st when it arrived. THIS is the worst one of them all.

I've read this series up until this one and I simply cannot finish it.
Victoria is so mean and hateful to Quincy it's unbelievable. She goes from loving to pi**ed off in nothing flat. AND why does she insist on calling him "Gus?"
That was OK when they first met and he didn't tell her his name right away but it should have ended there. I cringe every time she calls him that and when I start cringing during reading I'm sooo done with that book.

She made you believe she new all about ettiquite during the Civil War THEN goes out for a morning run in her jeans? Come on! Let's get real here.

The writer ruined the entire series with this one. She made Victoria a vicious Bi*ch and there was no getting away from it. It was just too much!

The only other problem I had with the other books {well, not the only one} was with Sophie and Jamie.
If I ever download a time travel book where the H or the h call the other "BABY" near the beginning I'll delete it immedately. Good Grief, the word BABY must have been used a hundred times in the book. {I'm not kidding either.}

I can appreciate modern woman being independent but I see no reason why the men had to be so sweet and patient and honorable for so long while the women continued to act like they were always right and the men were always wrong. There was almost no compromise on the women's part.

I think I've read enough of this and will not read the rest of the series.
In EVERY one of the books EVERY person at one time or another "pinches the bridge of their nose," over and over again. And I mean EVERY one of the characters in every book.
