I really enjoyed this book but I would caution readers that it is waaaay different from the first book in the series. The time travel aspect that was introduced in the first book comes into play in a major and unexpected way in this one (I can’t say much more without giving anything away, sorry!). The romance between Emmeline and Lord Silverton continues and evolves which was my favorite part of the novel. I have no idea what is going to happen with book 3, but can’t wait to see where Juliana Gray takes this story!
