Blurb:

From the New York Times bestselling coauthor of Five Feet Apart and She Gets the Girl comes a fresh and inventive sapphic romantic comedy that’s What If It’s Us meets Bridgerton.

What if you found a once-in-a-lifetime love…just not in your lifetime?

Audrey Cameron has lost her spark. But after getting dumped by her first love and waitlisted at her dream art school all in one week, she has no intention of putting her heart on the line again to get it back. So when local curmudgeon Mr. Montgomery walks into her family’s Pittsburgh convenience store saying he can help her, Audrey doesn’t know what she’s expecting…but it’s definitely not that she’ll be transported back to 1812 to become a Regency romance heroine.

Lucy Sinclair isn’t expecting to find an oddly dressed girl claiming to be from two hundred years in the future on her family’s estate. But she has to admit it’s a welcome distraction from being courted by a man her father expects her to marry—who offers a future she couldn’t be less interested in. Not that anyone has cared about what or who she’s interested in since her mother died, taking Lucy’s spark with her.

While the two girls try to understand what’s happening and how to send Audrey home, their sparks make a comeback in a most unexpected way. Because as they both try over and over to fall for their suitors and the happily-ever-afters everyone expects of them, they find instead they don’t have to try at all to fall for each other.

But can a most unexpected love story survive even more impossible circumstances?

My Review

I was so excited to read this one. I loved the idea behind it, and it was carried out perfectly! I liked the way the two girls were unsure exactly who they should or were falling for. The fact that Lucy lives in a time period where women are expected to marry, and of course it really only is “acceptable” to marry a man, made the perfect setting for this story. The way that Audrey ended up back in 1812 was a bit unexpected, but I liked it! And the fact that there wasn’t a clear reason why or how or if she would/could get back to her own time in the present.

The Outlander super-fan that I am, I was so excited when they did mention it because, obviously, the parallels of being sent back in time. I also loved all the pop culture references to time travel, even if I think there was no mention of Back to the Future, which seems like a big one left out. The way that Audrey was pretty open with Lucy about what the future was like was definitely something I enjoyed as well. Instead of having to keep everything secret to not mess up the future, it was fun having her be able to talk about that.

There were lots of lessons for both girls, and lots of great characters in the past to help them along the way. Even one as a surprise towards the end, that definitely led to a bit of a surprise once Audrey was able to get back to her own time. The ending was so good and one I’d kind of suspected would happen, but I was definitely happy with the way it went.
