reads. I have, for the most part, stuck to the Nancy Drew series when it comes to
YA reads but am always interested in going out of that box for a good YA read. I
enjoy historical fiction so this series piqued my interest and I was excited to read
I was not disappointed! This is a really cool historical fiction that's about the unique connection of Alice and Roe's Connection...even though they never met because Alice was alive in 1899 and Roe..2016...This was a great start to a series. Intriguing, keeps the reader guessing, great writing...It may be a YA read but I believe readers beyond YA will completely enjoy this; especially if you're into historical fiction with a time travel type element (from the past to the present, but not time traveling). This isn't a slow read either, the author keeps you pulled in and sets the scene excellently. I think the only disappointment I had was that the romances seemed to move too fast; there didn't seem to really be any build up. But I enjoyed the book nonetheless.
Scarborough Ball is the second in the Scarborough Fair series, a thrilling historical trilogy.
Much like the first book, the second book in this series did not disappoint. This time, it's 1923 vs...or and 2016. Rose and Dan (2016) are off to college but things aren't going so well for Rose. On the flip side, we "meet" her great grandmother, Lillian with the time-travel/historical fiction aspect and get a look at the glitz and glamour of the 1920's at the Ball..the "setting" for this book. I don't want to give any spoilers but, the author does not disappoint with excitement, mystery, fascinating intrigue. I am loving the time lapse with the connection, the historical fiction and accuracy. It seems the author did some research while keeping it light, fun, yet serious, and fictitious. Excited for the last installment in this trilogy!
Rose seems to have an "easy" job of just collecting evidence to give to the court to get rid of her nemesis...per usual, the past comes back to haunt certain people..But Max won't stop without a fight. Is going back in time an option to fix things so bad things won't happen? This book gets a little heavier but isn't so serious that it isn't enjoyable. I enjoyed this climatic read as well as the first two. I am disappointed there isn't a next book to read.
All in all, I completely enjoyed this trilogy and recommend it to all my friends. I received complimentary copies of these books in exchange for honest reviews. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
