It’s fitting that on Tell-a-Fairy-Tell Day we’re reviewing a book that has faeries in it.
“Reese Hamilton has big plans to help make the world a better place and a new job lined up to help her do it. Before starting work, she heads to England for a Regency immersive experience. She doesn’t expect her best friend to invite her heart-destroying brother to join them. Two years hasn’t been long enough for Reese to forget him. Then fae magic rips them back to 1850. It’s a time when women have few rights.
Jem Taylor messed up big when he walked away from Reese to pursue his dream job. He hasn’t been able to forget her and jumps at his sister’s invitation. Suddenly hurtled into Victorian England, he has the chance to woo Reese again. But to do it, he’ll have to fight the magic that brought her to 1850 and an Earl with the means to keep her there.”
The idea to bring so many back through time at once and give them each their own story was unique and creative. It got me excited to read the other two in the Twickenham Time Travel as well (P.S. I Love You, and Love’s Past are both on KU).
The concept of the magic felt a little heavy as first, but I’m glad that Donna worked in the idea that the magic didn’t have all control, just gave nudges in the right direction to promote goodness. It made the overall feeling of the book magical.
I really appreciated the background and character development she gave to the characters but at times their emotions and conversations felt a little surface level and I would have appreciated a little bit more depth. I did really loved the overall feeling of making a difference in the world.
