FROM GOODREADS: When it comes to love, time is all they need…Averie is terrified of anything remotely scary, but when she finds herself short of cash, she has not choice but to work on the catering staff at the creepy historic Faulkner mansion. The Faulkner Plantation was the site of a bloody massacre in the 1800s, and the event is an attempt to change its reputation. There’s just one catch: the host has more in store than dinner. Soon Avery, along with a handsome guest named Quillan, is transported – back in time…
It’s one month before the massacre and Averie and Quillan must find the courage to do more than survive. Together, they must uncover the truth about the Faulkner family and try and stop the murders. But as Averie and Quillan grow closer, the stakes are higher than they expected. Will they be able to put their feelings aside to change the past – and find life, and Love, in the place Averie fears the most?
MY TAKE: I wasn’t too sure what to expect with this book, but it seemed to have many aspects of a good story that I would enjoy. I was right in choosing to review it, it was a fun, quick read.
Avery was a fun character to get to know. She had had a rough time of it and could be a bit much at times, but I ended up liking her. I liked that she bucked tradition and propriety by actually interacting with the slaves in the past. Her modernness finally served her well.
One issue with the time travel was the fact that there wasn’t complete continuity with the timeline and the changes made in the past. I think if the loose ends were tied up a little neater I’d have liked it a little bit better.
