ISBN: 1-60154-342-5
Blurb: He broke her heart in another lifetime and now he's back. April's startling visions of 1920s Hollywood include silent film stars, roadsters, glamorous people and places, plus a handsome actor who pursues her. April's best friends think she is delusional. And then she meets the actor's charming lookalike in present-day Seattle. Torn between her memories and her new love, April is terrified that she will repeat her past mistakes. Is that her destiny, to love him and lose him throughout eternity?
Review: From the start, Ms Matthews pulls you into a story that is interesting and well written. Her clever plotting makes the novel plausible and she develops interesting and exciting characters. I like the chemistry between April and her three friends who all play an important part throughout. Great natural dialogue helps to give the reader a real feel for the people and events.
Ms Matthews gives us two love stories, one through flashbacks from the 1920s and the other in the present. She does this successfully and keeps the reader guessing as to the outcomes of both and how they impact April’s decisions.... This story is a little bit different in so much as it wasn’t clear to me from the beginning exactly who the hero was. The focus is on April and the impact of her previous life experience on her choices. It is about the consequences of those choices.
This is an original, memorable read.
