My Rating ~ 4 out of 5

Emily Musgrave is from 1813 England, but after running away from the carriage taking her to a convent she steps into a piskey circle asking for help. She ends up on her butt in a cobblestone circle on a street in Tennessee in the year 2011. Standing before her is a woman who introduces herself as Tinker, sister to Liam Jackson, Irish musician. Emily has a particular weakness for Irish men and Liam is a hottie. They take her back to their run-down hotel room while they try to figure out what to do with her and she tries to figure out what happened to her.

I loved this story. The characters were well-fleshed and vibrant. I pictured them easily in my head. The story progressed smoothly and I had no problem being in the moment with the characters. Emily, having believed in piskeys (or pixies) and having come from the past didn’t have as hard a time adjusting to the future as Liam did in believing she was from the past which caused some tension between the characters.

Every time I had to put this story down I couldn’t wait to get back to it to see where it was heading. Emily’s adjustment, Liam’s final acceptance, Tinker’s secret and a bad guy stalking Emily kept my interest until the end. This is listed as Book 1 in a series. I can’t wait to see Book 2.
