Publisher’s Synopsis:
Thrown back to the year 1897, Victoria Ashton is mistaken for, and forced to impersonate, the spiteful, unfaithful Countess of Guildford, who’s been missing for three weeks. Despite Victoria’s attempts to convince the earl she’s not his wife, her double’s infidelity and lies make it difficult, especially when Victoria falls in love with a man who loathes her.

Nicholas Thornhill, Earl of Guildford, is plagued with rumors he murdered his missing wife. When she unexpectedly reappears, he scoffs at her latest in a long string of lies. But the changes in Victoria make him to alter his opinion as he forges a bond with her that crosses the boundaries of time.

Point of view:
3rd person.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
Anyone who follows me knows I’m particularly fond of books with all the emotions. I loved this unique mix of time travel/reincarnation, humor, sadness, romance, mystery, & suspense. Monica Burns has crafted a unique and unpredictable story. I didn’t always know where she was going to take me, but loved the many layers of Nicholas & Victoria’s story. A delicious mix of sweet and spicy, laughter and tears, and uncovering what happened to the original Countess of Guilford.

This is a bit tricky to write a review for because so much of what I loved about this story were the surprises, twists, and turns. I don’t want to ruin those for anyone. The secondary characters were fantastic as well: Edmund, Sebastian, Anna, &Nora. As there are two versions of Nicholas & Victoria, only one truly gets an HEA. However, their love truly is timeless and I like the way Burns brought them together across the century.

There’s a sweet epilogue and, grab your tissues, excerpts from Nicholas’ journals. Absolutely compelling start to finish.

Duet narration by Zachary Johnson & Stephanie Németh-Parker was perfection. There’s so many characters, from different eras & with different accents. I adored how seamless the narration was. Johnson & Németh-Parker are such a great fit for Burns’ writing and it was an emotional yet delightful listen.
