Well, almost check.
Be careful what you wish for.

Avid reader time permitting. Love audio books as I can multitask, love being inserted into the time & place of story thru narrators accents.
In any time travel book, you have to start in one time, in this case the present, in order to travel to another time, frequently the past. I liked how the author laid the groundwork to set up the reason for falling through time which I found to be very entertaining. The fact that there were no explicit sex scenes kept the story moving quickly and realistically. I didn't miss the lack of sex scenes in the story, as the implied romantic interest/chemistry, between the main characters was written so well. I also bought the audio version of this book, narrated by Kristina Blackstone. I loved her "southern, North Carolina accent for Lucy, but would have preferred a bit more distinction between the male voices. She is a talented narrator, so that is just personal preference. I have enjoyed books 1&2 so am looking forward to reading book 3 as soon as possible. I would easily recommend this story to friends that enjoy sweet, time travel romances. Four stars for story, performance, and interest.
The story starts off in present day and seems to be an ordinary vacation. Until he pops the big question. Then things go terrible wrong for a while. While trying to doge a family of apparently crazy murders, Lucy must try to figure out how to live in a new time without all of our modern conveniences, while trying not to be accused of being a witch. Quite a few things to get used to..... Lucy accepts things much better than I would. I would so be looking for tea leaves, us Sothern girls love our sweet tea. But I don't think they were around in that era. I was left with a few questions at the end of the story. I hope the next books in the series answers them. Because some changes would seem to have sent ripples in the future outcome.
Love audio books. Hate bad narrators.
Sure but I really disliked the narrator's male voice and her southern accent was WAY off! I had to quit listening several times because I couldn't stand it!
I think they were all pretty necessary for the story.
This was a nice little story. No sex, which I didn't mind at all. Unfortunately, the narrator ruined the entire book. She (the narrator) doesn't have a bad voice but her character voices were absolutely horrible.
The narrator is not good, stilted and oddly paced and flat in places. At the same time I did listen to the whole book and bought book 2 without even looking at the narrators name.... so I guess she rates as tolerable.
The book is good. Subject matter is treated well. There is no sex, odd for a book with medieval knights, but it works.
I got both the kindle version and the audible, which was much reduced with it, five or six dollars I think. It was worth it.
This book is really poorly written and the performance is awful. I have never heard a southern accent that was so bad. The main character in this book sounded like an idiot. I'm sorry this whole thing was just bad.
If Cynthia Luhrs was trying for an Outlander copy, she missed it by a mile.
