This was rather frustrating. I have read other Moning books, which I loved. I even added her name to my auto-buy list. But this book, yikes. I got the impression this might have been her transition book from time travel romance into paranormal. Setting that aside, I found it impossible to like any of the characters even in the slightest degree. I did finish because I held out hope for some small whisper of what I enjoyed in her other books. It wasn't there.
Bottom line...give Moning a try but not with this book.
