I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and their plight, especially as Jeff and Melody begin to fall in love. The explanations behind the rings powers and Melody's and Marcy's connections were very well thought out, and Horner does a phenomenal job switching between the language divide as Jeff transcends both past and present. It is evident that a lot of research went into this novel, and the depictions of the Chicago World's Fair are amazing; it's a time period I would really like to see, and Horner was able to take me there in this great time travel novel. Learning about the rings power through trial and error, Jeff and Melody's adventures are compelling and it's impossible not to root for them. I really enjoyed it and hope there will be a sequel, especially based on the phenomenal twist at the end of the story.
That's where Melody comes in. Melody is not only my favorite character but a lady through and through. She is Marcy's great-great-grandmother and could pass for her twin in appearance and gestures. Melody has this demeanor about her that is part flirty, part assertive that I just love. For instance, when Jeff first tries to kiss Melody, she backs away and says, "Just because I've agreed to meet you again doesn't give you the right to take liberties with me." Melody demands respect from everyone and does it in a way that is kind and firm. Jeff quickly convinces Melody of his time travel and the more time they spend together, the more they fall for one another, and the more Jeff is torn between his own time and 1893.
Horner does a fantastic job painting a lively picture of 1893 and the Chicago World Fair. The story is filled with vibrant foods, people and events. I had no trouble picturing life in 1893, and I found myself enjoying that time period more and more as the story went on. Horner has created some fantastic supporting characters. Alice, Melody's sister, is everything you would hate in a female. She is mean, rude, gossipy, and manipulative. I could not stand her, yet loved how she would fan the flames. I also liked Clarence, Melody's uncle. He loves telling grand tales. He's a natural storyteller, a relatable character, and someone that everyone has met in their life.
Horner surprised me in Tandem Tryst. This novel is not only about a sweet courtship between Jeff and Melody, but it is also filled with murder and suspicion. Someone in 1893 knows about Jeff's time travel and attempts are made to steal his magical ring and well as end his life. The story lines in Tandem Tryst are very multi-dimensional, which moves the novel forward naturally yet keeps the story fresh and intriguing. Tandem Tryst is an excellent novel I highly recommend reading.
