What is this book about?

In the last stages of a genetic disease, Ellen Creighton has decided to live out her remaining days at the estate of her longtime friend Harrison Burlington. Harrison cares deeply for Ellen, but as a wheelchair-bound paraplegic, he’s never allowed himself to get serious in a relationship. However, he’s desperately trying to save her by finding the holy water that is believed to heal any disease.

When he locates two flasks, Ellen refuses to drink one of them because she believes the holy water killed her sister and father. In an effort to convince her to take it, Harrison ingests the contents first, and when Ellen witnesses the effects, she can no longer deny the power of the substance in the bottles. Dangerous criminals are also seeking the holy water, and Ellen soon learns they will go to any lengths to get the powerful drug–including sending her back into the past to find it for them.

My review:

Like the first book in this series, the story is unusual because of the time travel aspect. While the mechanics behind it were interesting, I found myself more invested in the love story of Harrison and Ellen. I particularly rooted for Harrison to find a happy ending especially after reading the first book.

Ellen was skeptical of the healing powers believed to be derived from holy water. When she witnesses the effects on Harrison’s disability, she begins to consider a brighter future for those she loves. There were times when I wanted to shake her for missing Harrison’s true feelings for her. But I could not fault her loyalty.

I loved Harrison from the first time he showed up on the pages in book one. One of the draws of reading this story was to see him find love. He was loyal, kind, and a true hero.

The ending was happy but with a few unanswered questions. I’m not sure if there is a third book in the works but I would love to see a little more closure.

What I enjoyed most about this book:

Harrison and the depth of his love for Ellen.

What I didn’t like about this book:

Ending was a little unsatisfying.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Would I recommend this book to others? Yes. The time travel aspect was interesting, but the love story stole the spotlight. This is the second book in the series. It can be read as a standalone, but the first book gives more depth to Harrison’s character and the backstory of the holy water.

Note: I received this book complimentary as a participant in the Revell blog tour. I was not required to give a positive review. All of the opinions I have expressed here are my own.
