Title: A Tale of Two Centuries
Author: Rachel Harris
Year Published: 2013
Synopsis: Alessandra D’Angeli is in need of an adventure. Tired of her sixteenth-century life in Italy and homesick for her time-traveling cousin, Cat, who visited her for a magical week and dazzled her with tales of the future, Alessandra is lost. Until the stars hear her plea.
One mystical spell later, Alessandra appears on Cat’s Beverly Hills doorstep five hundred years in the future. Surrounded by confusing gadgets, scary transportation, and scandalous clothing, Less is hesitant to live the life of a twenty-first century teen…until she meets the infuriating—and infuriatingly handsome—surfer Austin Michaels. Austin challenges everything she believes in…and introduces her to a world filled with possibility.
With the clock ticking, Less knows she must live every moment of her modern life while she still can. But how will she return to the drab life of her past when the future is what holds everything she’s come to love?
Why?: I'm not usually one for romance books, but this sounds like a fun little book that mixes the past with the present. I've been reading a lot of dark, heavy books recently, and I think this will be a nice change of pace.
Expectations: I expect a fun romance with a little bit of adventure and a lot of self-discovery. Plus a lot of Less adapting her sixteenth century ways to fit in in the twenty-first century, which ought to be pretty humorous.
Judging a book by its cover: I'm not sure how I feel about this cover. It's not really anything special as far as romance covers go, but I do like the way the title looks and how the couple has on matching outfits. I'm not really sure I'd pick this up if I saw it on a shelf somewhere, but it's possible.
