Heather Graham is up there with my all time favorite authors.. When I read her stories I get so lost in the characters and their worlds that I almost forget to come up for air!!
I'm glad I chose this book for the last few days, I wasn't feeling well and it really helped me to get lost for a little while..
Melody and Jake were quite the unusual couple.. I don't normally read books about time travel, but this one worked so well for a holiday story. Jake was to be hanged in 1776, but his sister, Serena, used magic and a portal to send him to modern times where he met Melody and fell in love with her while trying to get back "home" to his sister.
Very good read!! :)
Description from the publisher:
Centuries ago, by a scaffold in Manhattan, rose petals drifted gently to the ground......like snow on a wintry Massachusetts night. Melody Tarleton is driving home for Christmas when a man--clad in Revolutionary War-era costume--appears out of nowhere, right in the path of her car. Shaken, she takes in the injured stranger, listening with concern to Jake Mallory's fantastic claim that he's a Patriot soldier, sentenced to death by British authorities. The last thing he remembers is the tug of the noose.
Safe at her parents' house, Melody concocts a story to explain the handsome holiday guest with the courtly manners, strange clothes and nasty bump on the head. Mark, her close friend who wishes he were more, is skeptical and her family is fascinated--though not half so fascinated as Melody herself. Jake is passionate, charming and utterly unlike anyone she's ever met. Can he really be who he claims? And can a man from the distant past be the future she truly longs for?
With the aid of enchanted petals, ancient potions and the peculiar magic of the season, Melody and Jake embark on an unimaginable Christmas adventure--and discover a love that transcends time
