In 1692, Isabeau Munier cast a spell to flee Lobster Cove and escape burning at the stake for witchcraft. Instead, she’s trapped by a curse that tosses her through time whenever she attempts to leave the small town.
With her curiosity shop and Great Dane familiar, Isabeau has finally found her place in time. When her landlord’s sexy nephew moves in, she thinks she may have found Mr. Right as well.
Grayson Wright’s intrigued by the beautiful Isabeau, but a friend’s accusations make him worry Isabeau took advantage of his beloved uncle. Gray’s determined to learn the truth, even at the risk of losing his heart.
Can Isabeau prove she’s not the gold-digger Gray fears and that her love for him is true? Can Gray learn to trust his heart, which tells him Isabeau’s the perfect woman for him? Or will Isabeau’s curse take the chance away from them both?
In Echoes of the Past, Isabeau Munier cast a spell to flee her hometown, and escape burning at the stake back in 1692. The spell backfired though, and now she’s trapped by a curse. Whenever she wants to leave the town, the curse tosses her through time. Now, having opened a curiosity shop, she’s finally found her place in time. And with her landlord’s sexy nephew, Grayson Wright, moving in, she suspects she might have found her love as well.
Gray is interested in Isabeau too, but he worries she might be a gold-digger.The two of them will have to set aside their differences and the assumptions others make about them if they want their relationship to work.
The best part of the book was the concept of Isabeau’s spell/curse keeping her locked in town, and forcing her to travel through time when she tries to leave town. It’s one of the most original ideas I’ve read about in a long while. The romance was okay. I liked both characters as individuals, so I didn’t mind when they started a relationship. The writing is decent too, and it’s an enjoyable, fast-paced read.
