Blurb:

Chicago journalist Erin Nichols isn’t about to give up when she’s fired for writing an expose. But when a combination of murder, magic, and celestial events transports her through time and space to 1900 western Canada, city hall corruption becomes the least of her worries.

But the past isn’t any safer. Awaking to learn she may be the victim of some unknown crime, Erin takes shelter with the local Mountie–the picture of upright Canadian fortitude. As tragedy stalks the nearby First Nation reserve, Erin learns from a Romanian mystic that magic is dying, and the fae are turning to their darker natures to survive.

While the reserved and sexy Mountie helps her navigate a time in which she doesn’t belong, the mysterious and seductive conjurer helps her try to find a way home. As they alight feelings and desires Erin never knew she was capable of, she begins to wonder where she truly belongs.

My Review:

This book started out well, the time travel was entertaining, and the premise was excellent but somewhere along the way it just got messy. The introduction of Mitica ruined an otherwise fun read. The story didn’t flow after that and I began to lose interest. This had all the right elements, but it was poorly executed.  I would give this a miss.

I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
