Christmas in July – The Time Traveler’s Christmas by Amy Jarecki @amyjarecki
The Time Traveler's Christmas - Amy Jarecki

The Time Traveler’s Christmas by Amy Jarecki was a wonderful surprise for me.

 

I won the book and read until the wee hours of the morning to find out how it would end.

 

I look forward to reading more of the Guardian of Scotland stand alone series.

MY REVIEW

 

The Time Traveler’s Christmas by Amy Jarecki was a wonderful surprise. I loved this historical fiction novel and stayed up to the week hours of the morning to finish it.

 

Lachlan had not only lost one of the biggest karate tournaments of his life, but also his cheating wife. Now…he’s hiding out at his uncles.

 

His uncle had left him a Christmas gift, a medallion. He put it on, went to sleep, and…

I was immersed in Lachlan’s story early in the book  and he never let me go. He is a sexy warrior that believes in doing the right thing, at all costs.

 

The surprises and action came early and the character’s came to life through Amy Jarecki’s words.

 

I was curious where she would take the story. Is it possible to straddle both worlds, moving back and forth between them? Would the medallion choose for him? Or would he have to choose?

 

Lachlan thought he knew and had one year . Come next Christmas, it would be time to go home. But he had this Christmas.

 

Of course, we have romance and, even though the sexual tension between Lachlan and Christine is almost instantaneous, their relationship develops slowly.

 

I was invested in their lives from the opening pages. They are strong characters that grow and develop over the pages.

 

I was surprised how much I loved The Time Traveler’s Christmas. Not about the time travel itself, because I love to read the genre, but because of the time and dialogue.

 

Lachlan had been transported from the twenty first century to medieval times, and to Scotland to boot. I thought it might be tough reading, but I worried for nothing.

There was so much more to the story than I anticipated.

 

Sprinkled with truths of history, the Guardian of Scotland stand alone series is one I want to continue.

Home in Time for Christmas
Home in Time for Christmas - Heather Graham

Disappointing. I didn't connect with any of the characters. Things that I probably wouldn't notice, or care about, irked me. Melody's parents are too nice and wacky. Too nice (think of a Hallmark Christmas movie!)! And of course, they live in Jake's old house. Yep, he recognized it. After 233+ years of remodeling and changes, etc it was still recognizable to him. (Yeah right). I could go on, but I've wasted enough time.

Great Holiday Read
Just in Time for Christmas (Southern Born Christmas Book 2) - Kim Boykin

Just In Time For Christmas by Kim Boykin is a fantastic holiday romance.  Ms Boykin has delivered a wonderful, well written book with lovable characters.  Miranda and Logan's story is loaded with drama, humor and spice.  I enjoyed Just In Time For Christmas and look forward to reading more from Kim Boykin in the future.  Just In Time For Christmas is book 4 of the Lowcountry Lovers Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

The Polar Express
The Polar Express - Chris Van Allsburg

The Polar Express, is another one of the classics I want to have in my classroom. I would read it around Christmas Time during whole group reading. Or just to have in my library for my students to read.

In Time for Christmas -- a Novella - Heather Blanton

IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS by HEATHER BLANTON  
Loved the summary of this book and the beautiful cover pictured.
Story starts out with Charlene and she's married to a businessman, Dale. He's beat her ever since they got married. She ran back to her family and when he came to get her he told her he'd beat his family if she ever ran away again.
She's endured two years with him now and has had it-she wants to go home for Christmas. He takes her-gives him time to spend with his lady friend, but he abandons her with no food, clothing or water. He brought her to the Page ranch-his family's ild dilapidated place.
As he leaves he hits her and she falls, hits her head. When she comes to she's at the ranch but 100 years earlier. Love hearing how the grandson, Billy tends to the ranch with others and his grandmother Miss Kate. She fits right in helping them all out and she prays Dale never finds her...
Story goes to the future and he had forgotten to get her a few days after he dropped her off-it's been over a week now.... Miss Kate had also been in the same circumstance so she told Charlene she could stay as long as she needed to. Bily takes a shine to her also..
Love the detailed descriptions of the ranch itself, buildings and how they even tend to the garden. Had to look up a few words to find out what they meant as I had never head them-priceless! - love a book that teaches me things.
She opens up to their questions and answers them truthfully.  Life and death matters and miracles are explained in the Bible!
Charlene's not seen her parents in years and she knows what she has to do to end the suffering...other works by the author are highlighted at the end.
I was given the book by Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and here is my honest review
