This time-travel romance had all of the right ingredients: realistic characters, a slow-burn romance, and an intriguing historical plot. Joel is a perfect reluctant time traveler; he is gorgeous, gracious and gentlemanly, determined not to try and change the time line in one of the most trying times in US history. The women in the 40’s, particularly Ginny and Grace were amazing, strong, intelligent and just knew that something wasn’t right with Joel. The time period that Joel was transported to, months before the bombing of Pearl Harbor would not be any easy time for anyone with knowledge of the future. While this knowledge definitely shook Joel, I admired his actions and difficult decisions that showed the type of man he truly was; especially when the friends that he just made were shipped off to war. Joel and Grace’s romance was realistic and super sweet; I definitely felt all the emotion that went into each character’s actions. I was also very surprised at the end, it was not was I saw coming, but great for anyone that loves a happily ever after. This book is the first of a series and I would love to know where the story goes next!
