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

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.

GOODREADS BLURB

A man’s life can fall apart in an instant…

Tougher than oxhide, Lachlan Wallace can take about anything except a breakup call from his wife two minutes before competing in the Karate Championship of the World. Arriving home with a loss, he agrees to watch his uncle’s cat over the holidays. Or so he thinks—until he awakes on a fourteenth century battlefield beside a woman fighting for her life.

Never underestimate a woman’s determination…

Taken from her at the age of two, Lady Christina de Moray hasn’t seen her son in thirteen years. While traveling with Robert the Bruce’s army to exchange an English prisoner for the lad, a battle erupts. Losing the fight, Christina is rescued by a mysterious warrior while the English escape with her son yet again.

And never bet against the potency of passion…

Left with no way back to the twenty-first century, Lachlan agrees to help Christina rescue the lad from his English captors. If the heir is not returned by Christmas next, the Bruce will make his decision whom to grant the de Moray lands, including Lady Christina’s hand. Once his duty is fulfilled, Lachlan hopes to discover a way home—as long as he keeps his mind on the goal and ignores his growing love for the spirited woman who gives him her trust—and her heart.

    • I am so glad I won the book or I probably wouldn’t have discovered you. It is my pleasure to share and I hope others find this a good one for their reading shelf.

  1. Sounds wonderful, Sherry. And I enjoyed your review. This isn’t your usual genre and it sounds like you were pleasantly surprised. I recently read a time travel romance and really liked it. I bet I’d like this one too:)

  2. [email protected] on said:

    Scots and time travel and hotness and Christmas and YES.

  3. I love time travel books and movies. It’s one of my favorite plot premises. But it’s hard to find ones that are well done. I’m glad this one is a winner. It’s sounds like something I would love.

    • I think you would love it, Taylor. I am always happy to find a book that surprise me. I thought this would be a toughie because of the Scotland element, sometimes I stumble with the writing, but no worries there. I couldn’t put it down. Happy reading.
