They exist in two different centuries, but their love defies time…
Cassandra craves drama and adventure, so the last thing she wants is to spend her summer marooned with her mother and stepfather in a snooty Massachusetts shore town. But when a dreamy stranger shows up on their private beach claiming it’s his own—and that the year is 1925—she is swept into a mystery a hundred years in the making.
As she searches for answers in the present, Cassandra discovers a truth that puts their growing love—and Lawrence’s life—into jeopardy. Desperate to save him, Cassandra must find a way to change history…or risk losing Lawrence forever.
I liked the premise of this one, and for the most part the main characters–Cassandra has a tendency to go over the edge into bratty, self-centered melodramatic teenager mode at times, but overall she was a pretty sympathetic character. Lawrence was very sweet, and I would have liked to have seen more of the book from his point of view. It was very Cass-centric.
I’m sure there were all kinds of oddities and errors with the whole time-traveling premise, but I focused on the story and tried not to shine the light of logical thinking over it too much. 😉 If you’re a reader who goes looking for scientific accuracy, though, this is probably not the book for you. There were some definite unexpected twists–I’m still not 100% sure how I feel about the whole murder/criminal underworld/suspense parts of the plot, but it did keep me turning the pages.
Overall this was a quick, entertaining read. I would probably give this author a try again.
