One hour to rewrite the past . . .
For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn’t there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She’s tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.
So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may also change her past.
Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he’s around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should’ve happened?
Usually when I go to start a new book, I know something about it. Sometimes I know exactly what the book will be about based on reviews or what other people are saying. With this book, I knew it had something to do with ghosts and had a pretty cover.
I’m usually a sucker for ghosts and a pretty cover.
Thankfully, this book was on sale on Amazon for quite some time, so I got myself a copy and dug in. Even though it didn’t have to do with ghosts in the traditional sense, I was completely hooked! I had no idea that the story included another element that I love to read about – time travel.
I really loved the characters in this book. They were mysterious, not too complicated, intriguing, and real. And I love the name of the main character – Emerson. Such a unique name for a female heroine. And I loved her with Michael, the mysterious man from Hourglass, who Emerson’s brother hired to help her with her situation of being able to see ghosts.
This story really was the perfect blend of romance, intrigue, mystery, and a whole lot of time travel. The time travel was well explained and I didn’t feel like too much of it went over my head (like a lot of time travel explanations can). When I finished I was so happy to know that I had a copy of Timepiece on my Kindle – I can’t wait to dive into that one to get another fix!
